I don't understand how DT's model releases work. Most sites want a new release for every shoot. DT ask that every model only have one MR for the age group of the model:

"Important: Ensure that you upload the correct MR for your model and do not upload more than one MR document per model while in the same age group."

Does this mean that DT works completly differently from the other sites and more than one MR is not needed?

I think they mean if the model gets older and moves to a new age group you need to submit a new MR.

Say your model is 24 so she goes into 20-25 age group. But when she becomes 26 you need a new MR for 26-30 group.


 I think DT works the same as all agencies. YOu just need one MR for the model (except for that age group thing). As far as I know, only IS wants a new MR for every shoot.

If the model get older on life? (that happens every day)
Or older on the photo? lol

With DT I am sure that they will want both

yes, it's a bit odd, but works well in the case of family and friends that you regularly shoot.

I often will upload to DT first cos I know there's no MR to fill out, so it's easy. For iS, even for my own kids, they want a release for every single time I photograph them (which is probably about 100 times a year).

a lot of agencies will accept a year long release for family members

Thanks! That is so much simpler. Although I think my uploads now have caused some confusion for reviewers.

I was joking about the general absurdity of DT
"I think they mean if the model gets older and moves to a new age group you need to submit a new MR"

With DT we could expect that if the model gets older and moves to a new age group they could ask a new model release for the oldest photos too (where the model is younger), without consider the age of the model on the photos but only the actual age of the model

This is all great news. I was under the impression that all the other sites wanted new MRs for each shoot!

Ron is correct, that is DT policy indeed

anyway on all other agencies I submit a new one every time

Only one site, Istock, wants new model releases for every shoot. The rest don't have such a dumb policy and let you upload one release per model that you can use over and over.

its not dumb (I believe its the opposite actually)

when a model signs a release there is a field where it says Shoot Date, if you shoot a model in 10 different dates you should sign a release for each day, I am sure you are keeping all the releases so I don't see how hard is to upload one for every day and rest the case there, its covering you and agency and model

is this for real? I got a minus for saying we should get our a-ss covered?

It is dumb, especially when you use your own family members for models. I'm not going to do a thousand different releases for my own kid. I don't do new releases for them, or any other model I re-shoot. I just don't contribute to iStock because of that policy. Ignoring istock isn't exactly costing me anything. Considering how difficult and primitive their upload process is, I earn by not contributing so much of my time there.

wow, I really hope you are joking, I honestly believe you should do a new release for each photo shoot (day) beside family BUT actually you never know when a family member can sue you or your kid gets older and go nuts :D

if the family member signs a year long release I think that will cover you.

but you make a valid point, I've known the nicest, seemingly fair minded (and christians to boot) who betrayed and sued friends. awful. anyone outside my immediate family signs a new release for each shoot.
