Matt Ashmore Posted April 8, 2016 Share Posted April 8, 2016 One of the image communities mentioned in a recent Alamy blog has a different approach to acquiring property and model releases which I quite like. For each person or property owner in one of your images, you supply an email address and the community website automatically sends that person an email asking them to complete a release. The email they receive shows them the image that you are asking for a release for and contains a hyperlink which takes them to a web page (on the community's website) in which they supply their details, tick boxes to give approvals and so on. While I guess the resultant release doesn't then have a physical signature and isn't countersigned, it presumably has an 'electronic signature' and obviously is deemed as acceptable by this image community. While I don't see this as replacing the current Alamy approach to releases, it might be a useful alternative particularly when gaining releases in hindsight from people that you know like friends and family.
