Model Release Waivers

There is generally no problem to shoot images of people in public places, without a signed model release, if you are using the footage for personal or editorial projects.

However if you are shooting for commercial uses, with recognizable faces, on a private location and especially if you are shooting a sensitive scene, it is highly recommended that you ask for permission and get a signed model waiver.
Otherwise many potential buyers won’t be interested in your material and you may face legal consequences if it is broadcasted in the wrong context.
