Model Waiver & Release
I, _____________________________________, for valuable consideration received, hereby grant to artist A.D. Cook, with respect to any photographs, paintings or other images or recordings (the “Images”) of me by Cook or his agents, the perpetual, world wide right, for all purposes relating to Cook’s products and/or services, to:
Reproduce, display, distribute, copy, use and/or modify the Images, or portions thereof (in combination with or as a composite of other matter), in any media or embodiment, now know or to become known, including, but not limited to, photographs, paintings, and all electronic and/or computer-readable formats, and use my name in connection therewith.
I release Cook from any claim or cause of action (whether now known or unknown), for infringement of copyright, trademark or other intellectual property rights, defamation, invasion of right to privacy, publicity or personality or any similar matter, or based upon relating to the use and exploitation of the Images.
I also understand that the Images on the Internet cannot be adequately protected from unauthorized use by third parties and agree to hold Cook harmless from any such misuse. I waive all my right to inspect and approve the finished Images or their use.
I warrant and represent that I am over the age of eighteen (18) years and that I am free to enter into this agreement.

Please Note: All photos can be used in any way the artist A.D. Cook sees fit as stated in the Model Release. This is pretty much the case of any model signing any Model Release for any artist or photographer. Mine is no exception, however, I don’t have any reason to display your photos distastefully anywhere. That’s not what I’m about. Any photos displayed of you on any or all of A.D. Cook related web sites will be tastefully created and models represented respectfully.
It is important to note that not only your reputation is at stake but also my reputation. Any misrepresentation of you, the model, will not be tolerated.
