Release Me – New Model Release iOS Photography App

Release Me frees you from the shackles of paper, and puts your model release forms in a simplified, organized digital format which has just as much legal standing as a classic paper one.

A release form is important because it protects both the rights of photographer/filmmaker AND model.

Available for iPhone, iPad and iPod-Touch. 

This app retails for $8.99/£5.99 and you can download it here.



Release Forms can be sorted into project folders, which organizes models in a way that makes sense to you.

Sign The Screen


Have your model read through the legal details, and simply sign the screen with their finger. You can add a photo reference directly on the form, so you can remember who’s who.

Fully Customizable


The app comes preloaded with a general release form. It’s a one-size-fits-all form that will over almost everything. With that said, we wanted to make the app fully customizable so you can paste in your own forms. You can drag and drop new sections, or set a custom order as your default release.

Strike Out


If there’s a small particular section the person signing doesn’t agree with, you can "strikeout" that certain bit before they sign. After they sign, you cannot manipulate the form without a new signature



These forms are in no way stuck on your phone or iPad. After a release is complete, you can automatically generate a PDF and e-mail it to any e-mail address you provide.

Map View


One of the cooler features is the automatic location finder. If you don’t care to write in yourself where you photographed a subject, you can use your phone or iPad’s built-in maps. In just a second, it automatically marks your current place on a map with a pin, and can continue to add them for every model you photograph.

Custom Letterhead


If you have a custom letterhead for your business, you can upload it onto your phone and enter it into the app so that it goes on top of every one of your release forms. If you don’t have one, the app can automatically generate one for you. 

A release form… It’s better to have it and not need it, than it is to need it and not have it, because you never know what you might end up using your pictures for!
