The attached file is a sample of a basic model release suitable for printing and use as a basic agreement between you and a model when shooting nude subject matter. It is also a good idea to get a photograph of the model’s government issued photo ID (driver’s license, passport, etc) for proof of identity and age. This release is provided “as is” without any warranty as to its usefulness for commercial work, completeness or appropriateness to your situation or location. Check with a legal expert regarding the laws of your particular location, especially as it pertains to nude photography.
Some photographers prefer to have the release signed before shooting, while others do it after. A release signed before a shoot may not be enforceable since the model may not be able to consider exactly what photos she is releasing (the photos don’t exist yet). I have the model sign the release after the shoot.
