Hello!
My name is Elizabeth and I have a few questions. I don't really know the technical terms for a lot of these things yet but I was wondering if anybody could help me understand a few things regarding the legal proceedures of both graphic designing and photography.

Here's a little back story: I would like to add a few designs and photos to my portfolio. The designs have been created by me and verbally approved by the cilent for me to publish it for commerical use but I would like to stay safe and get them to sign something. What exactly can I give them to sign? Is there something like a model release for design work?

Also I took some photos and proceeded to retouching it, these have also been verbally approved by my cilent, but my second question would be: Is a model release the appropriate form to ask them to sign in this case?

I don't really know if I should be aware of anything else, but those are my two questions for now. If anybody could help me understand it a little bit more, I'd be very grateful!

Thanks a lot!

Elizabeth

Hello ElizabethM,

You could adapt something like this, for your purposes: https://asmp.org/tutorials/photographer-portfolio-release.html#.V23HLqJPFRI

Having something in writing is always best. Of course, posts in these forums cannot be construed as legal advice. :)

Best of luck,

Patrick
