This is my first post here on the forums (in fact, I am just joining the photography community as a whole) and I am looking for some advise. I want to do sports photography as mostly a hobby with the hope of making a little money from it to fund the equipment. I have close ties to the local youth sports community in my area and was thinking that it would be worthwhile to attend different youth events, take photos and then sell prints/digital copies online (mainly targeting family of the players). After doing some research into this, I came across Model Releases and the legal issues surrounding selling/publishing photos. I think I understand the different scenarios regarding when one needs one and when one doesn't. However, my particular scenario doesn't seem to fall into any of the ones that I have an understanding of. I would be selling the prints/digital copies out right and not necessarily using the photos for commercial use (promoting product or services). I wouldn't be charging anyone for my time, just the pictures themselves. So the question is, in this particular case, would I need a model release for the images I want to sell? I realize that it may be best to just seem some advise from a local lawyer, but figured I'd give this a shot first and see if anyone on here has dealt with something like this.
