Whether you're starting a nationwide advertising campaign or simply want to post new photographs on your company's homepage you'll need permission to use the photos. When someone signs a Model Release form they're giving you permission to take photos and use their likeness for a specific purpose, and are releasing any possible legal claims they have against you for that use.
