My two younger brothers are very active in sports and I find myself going to most of the games taking some action shots. My question is this: If I were to take pictures of the players on the team, and then make prints and try to sell them to the crowd (parents, family, etc), would I need a model release for each athlete captured in the shot? A friend of mine told me that I shouldn't need one because the events are in a public place (i.e. the public school gymnasium, the public school football field, etc). My next question would be: If I do need a model release, what would be the most effecient way of having them signed? As the parents purchase the prints? I've caught quite a few good shots of the basketball season and was thinking about selling cheap 8x10 or 5x7 to the parents. However, I don't want to be infringing the law, or worse, put myself in a sticky legal situation. Thanks for the help.
