Here is a copy of a simple standard photo and video consent form that can be used to gain permission to use someone in a photo session or film production. There is a downloadable Word file at the bottom if you’d like to maintain our formatting, if not you can just copy and paste the form below.
If you need something more robust for ongoing commercial usage with remuneration you can also view our name and likeness licensing agreement.
