    So I am starting my portfolio for class and I'd like to use the photos that I am taking for my portfolio, but I feel like I should have my clients sign a waver saying I may use their photos...
    any ideas on what I should type out?

    Welcome to the forum.

    I'd suggest a google search for 'model release'...it should give you something to work with.

    Actually, I believe that you really don't need a model release if all you do is use the photos for your portfolio. As the Photographer, you own the copyright, so as long as you don't use the image for commercial purposes...you shouldn't need a model release. Although, I'm not a lawyer, so I don't know that for sure...and it depends on where you live.

    It probably wouldn't hurt to have model releases anyway.

    thanks. My husband didn't think I needed one either, but another student in my class said you did...

    thanks!

    I'd get one if they are going to be displayed anywhere, even just for class. You never "need" a model release unless something goes wrong - it's just good insurance to have in that 1/1000 case.
