    Hello everyone! I am new to the forum and I have a question for everyone! I have recently started shooting weddings and other misc. pictures. I would like to use some of the pictures that I shot for advertisement purposes. I was wondering what for model release I would need to get signed to be able to do this. Does anyone know where I can get one or do I need to write one up on my own? If I need to write one what does it need to say? Thanks for all your help! Brad

    If that was for me, I'm sorry I can't help you on that.
    Actually, I would be interested in the answer too!
