    Model Release Question - One Time Only Needed?

    I checked the archives but didnt see anything that addressed this (nor did I see it in the ASMP book).

    If I'm working with the same model regularly, do I need to have her sign a release for each session or will one release cover it all?

    Thanks!

    -Clint

    I don't know what the legalities are but I get a separate release for each shoot. This way I have it covered.

    Cheers,

    I have typically done a single model release with my models, but they are folks I have a long-standing relationship with for the most part, so there is an understanding between us and a comfort level that mitigates the need for re-releasing every time. It is referred to as a "standing release", but it is probably better form to get a separate release each time, as Bill says above.

    I concur with Bill. My releases are specific to the shoot and the model. Plus if the shoot requires ANY hint of sexual content, I get a copy of their government issued picture identification. Everytime.
