By signing the photographer release forms, signatories waive their right to disapprove or object the use of their faces for the finished publication. For parents who need to sign for their kids, a minor release form should be signed since the parents are the ones who need to approve in behalf of their children. Photographer release forms are usually for those who are 18 and above and who are able to understand what they are signing for and responsible for their own actions. For photographers, videographers, and the like, the best possible approach when filming would be to bring photographer, media, minor and location release forms to avoid any unnecessary inconvenience. Consult a lawyer to go over the forms and let everyone concerned sign the forms before doing the filming or photography. It’s the only way to be sure.
