Hey I'm looking into starting portrait photography and thought holding some TFCD sessions would allow me to get some experience without having to pay anyone. I've already gotten numerous replies to my ad on craigslist so there's definitely interest.

Do I need my models to sign a release if I'm using them strictly in my portfolio? What about underaged kids? Would I need their parents to sign a release?

Thanks in advance :D

Yes, you need a release. It doesn't have to be anything fancy if you're not selling the images, but you do need something to be able to display their likeness in your portfolio.

For minors, the release must be signed by their parent/guardian.

All of the release forms I've found online are for people over 18. Would I need to find one that specifically states that the parent is signing for their child?

Just google "model release minor" and you will have plenty to choose from.

Legally speaking this (underlined part) is not correct, but it is always wise to get a model release for every shoot you possibly can and for it to cover everything you can think of, including and not limited to if you wanted to use the images in advertisements later on down the road.

Thanks, I guess that's technically more correct than my answer - the whole "reasonable expectation of privacy" stuff, I suppose.

One other thing. If your working with ANYONE under the age of 18 . It's always a must for me to have the parents there. That's just there to protect all parties involved.
