Hi, Ineed some help here. I have a few snow sport pictures that I'd like to upload. These are people jumpimp from cliffs with snowboards or skis. I took these last weekend up in the mountain but I don't know the guys and don't have model release. You can't tell who they are since they have sun glasses, hat... So I don't know if I can upload these without model release.

I found a few similar shots here:

What do you think?
Thanks, ben

the rule is if you can recognize the face, then you must have a model release. The ones you link to as examples of similar shots seem clearly recognizable to me even with the goggles and hat, so I would bet that they have model releases with them.

You're right, you can really see the face on these examples. You can't see the face as much on mine. Even less than the first link I gave.

If you have a way to post a couple of cropped samples at 100%, we could tell you for sure if we'll need a release.

I don't have a server space. I have the crop, but don't know how to show them.

Well, in that case, look at them with a critical eye - could the people recognize themselves? If you think not, upload just one. The queue is moving pretty good, it won't take long to find out.

Thanks for your help. I'm pretty sure that would be ok for 2 of these. I'm still trying to find a way to post the crops.

The one on the left is probably okay. The one on the right probably would require a release.
