Releases, Contracts, and Waivers for Photographers

with Rachel Brenke

  1. says: Shloka

    This is such a fun take on a disclaimer page! Kudos to your creativity.

    As ironic as this may sound, I wanted to request permission to use parts of your “disclaimer template” (obviously excluding all your personal statements) for my blog since since all the other ones I have found online sound too legal. Do let me know!

    1. says: Nienke Krook

      Thanks Shloka! Of course you can use parts of it, feel free to make it your own, it’s always hard to write a disclaimer that’s not too difficult for people to understand! Good luck with your blog!

  2. says: Beckie

    Oh, I love it! Best disclaimer I’ve ever read! The ‘standard’ legal disclaimers always sound depressing. I’ll have to rethink mine and make it reflect more of my own personality as you did with yours! Thank so much for the inspiration!!

  3. says: Steff

    I need so much help with this, thank you! I’m still a little confused where I put the disclaimer on Blogger…but I’m kind of a blogging tech dunce! I will re-read your post and have a go, thanks so much!

  4. says: Vicki

    I love your disclaimer. I have just started my blog so wasnt very sure on how I should write one.
    I feel inspired now and may use a few of your ideas if thats ok??
    Thanks for the help. Wish me luck :)

  5. says: Manuela

    Hello there! I just wanted to let you know that I’ve just out your link on my blog on the “disclaimer” page. Your tips about how to write it have been really useful! Thanks a ton.

  6. says: Aisha

    This is the most helpful disclaimer post out there! Can I use part of it for my own disclaimer? I mean the actual content text and not your personal or humourous statements of course :)

  7. says: Natalie

    This is amazing, like the many others who have already asked, is it ok to use this as a rough template as it’s such an easy an insightful read, all the others are so confusing!!
    Thank you for making legal stuff entertaining!

  8. says: mariam

    Thank you so much for your disclaimer. You just saved my life, I had no idea how to start mine for my website, but yours has been of great help. I took some parts from yours and paraphrase it. I hope it’s okay. I don’t want to be sued for copyright infringement. lol … you are super funny too. keep up the good work.

  9. says: Charles

    Kudos on your disclaimer … and for your website in general. I’m an old dude with a young blog and would love to incorporate some of your ideas (shamelessly steal a few words here and there) in my blog. Would that be OK?

  10. says: Romessa

    I’m totally jumping on the bandwagon!! Would love to be able to use parts of your disclaimer as I craft mine. Love how you made it personable and enjoyable to read!

  11. says: Lorna

    Thanks for the information and your permission to use parts of it in my disclaimer. This really helped me in writing mine and appreciate your post. Thanks for sharing this.

  12. says: Boo

    Hi, glad I’ve found your blog through looking how to write a disclaimer ( I’ve taken a few of your words for my disclaimer, I hope that’s okay?), because I’m going travelling very soon and really look forward to reading your ‘packing’ section and advice, also your shop!
    Best wishes, Boo

  13. says: Vashti

    Hello Nienke,
    I love this! It is witty and charming all in one. I feel like the humor helps the entire situation! LOVE! I may use for inspiration (I hope that is okay).

  14. says: Chayla

    Hi Nienke,

    Would I also be able to use parts of your disclaimer for my blog as well? Thank you for a wonderful resource and great blog!!!!

    Thank you!

  15. says: Nina

    Hi Nienke, I love your disclaimer! I have just written my own and have used yours as inspiration, thank you!
    From another Dutchie I can’t see any grammar issues to forgive in there, and I have spent most of my life in NZ and consider English (well the kiwi verion) my main language. Nederlands kan ook, maar is wel moeilijker!

    Thanks Again for your great disclaimer!

  16. says: iW

    Hi Nienke,

    Thanks for such great advice and inspiration. Would you, pretty please, also agree if I use this page to set up my new blog disclaimer?

    Thank you! iW

  17. says: Rachel Cooke

    Hi Nienke!

    I can’t even begin to tell you how useful I have found reading this and your how to write a disclaimer post. I find it particularly hard to articulate myself sometimes and I get myself stressed and flustered over it. I have taken advice from your How To Write A Disclaimer article and snippets from this to write my own disclaimer. I hope you don’t mind (if you do please let me know because I would hate to be a nuisance and I’d take it down straight away.) I tried my best to give it my own personal Rachel twist.

    I found your blog by chance when googling information on how to write my own disclaimer, but I’m so glad I did. The way you write is so personal and I love your sense of humour! I am subscribed and I can’t wait to hear more from you. :)

    Thank you,


    1. says: Nienke Krook

      Great to hear Rachel! That’s so nice of you to let me know! Don’t worry about being articulate, write from the heart and people will enjoy your stories, I’m sure. I wish you all the best with your blog!! Feel free to use any part from the disclaimer you want! Take care!

  18. says: Britney Jackson

    I would so love to use some of this information. I know it would be way easier for more because I have no idea what I’m doing when it comes to making disclaimers. I hope its okay to use it? I know you told a few people it was okay..Thanks for the information this helped me out a lot

  19. says: Thou Yang

    Hi Nienke,

    I was looking for a way to write a disclaimer and found yours to be not only creative, but also fun to read. Would it be possible to use your disclaimer as inspiration for mine? My blog is in its final stages and will be ready to launch soon.

    Great blog and information



  20. says: Jen

    Hi, I love this, and loved the post you wrote about needing this page on your website. Can I use parts on mine please? With changes obviously. :) Thanks!

  21. says: Tori

    Hi, I love your disclaimer – so personal!
    I’d like to request to use parts of it in my own disclaimer, obviously adapted to my own blog :)
    Thank you for inspiring me to finally write my own!

  22. says: Iriahus

    Hi, I’ve been looking for a good and easy to understand disclaimer and I found your disclaimer was to be not only creative, but also fun to read. Excellent! I’m totally impressed! Admire how you made it personable and enjoyable to read! I would also love to use parts of your disclaimer for my website as well. It’s my first website ever! Is this okay for you?

    Admirable blog and information.

  23. says: Schantta

    Hello, I am a new blogger and I came across your blog on Disclaimers while searching for how to write a disclaimer. Out of all the articles I read I found your blog information to be very informative and easy to read. I would love for your permission to use part of your disclaimer as a blue print to create my own minus your personal information of course.

  24. says: Tricia

    I am new to blogging and I didn’t even know I needed to have a disclaimer! This is fantastic! I’ve never actually finished reading a disclaimer before. I hope you don’t mind if I use parts as well. Thank you!

  25. says: Sarah

    I’m a new blogger and came across your disclaimer and love how fun yet informative it is! Could I have permission to use parts of it when writing a disclaimer for my own blog? Thanks for your time!

  26. says: Darlene

    Your site is so helpful. I located your website while searching how to write a disclaimer. May I also request permission to use your disclaimer?

  27. says: Tifany Grin

    Hallo! I’m totally in love with your disclaimer! It’s so creative and fun. I’m just staring a travel blog too and I was completely lost in how to do this till I found you. I know so many people have ask this before but would you mind if I use some parts (not the creative ones) to make the one for my website? Dank je wel.

  28. says: Megan

    Sounds like others have already asked but I too would like to use parts of this for my own blog. I see that you have allowed this with others but none the less wanted to ask permission myself.

  29. says: Clo

    Your disclaimer is so easy to understand! I love it! This is very helpful. May I please use parts of your disclaimer and make it my own for my own blog disclaimer? It would help me greatly!

  30. says: Norma


    Thank you so much for this article and this example of a disclaimer. I have been searching nonstop to find something that is actually helpful! This truly is!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I was hoping to use some similar language for my own website.

    Thank you again!

  31. says: Jasmine

    I recently started a blog 6 months ago and just realized how important it is to make a dislcaimer page. I hope it’s okay if I copy some parts of your disclaimer as I am quite bad at writing legal stuff! >.<

  32. says: Gina

    This is so helpful! I’m a blogging newbie, and this makes it all a little clearer. Could I use parts in my own disclaimer?

  33. says: Noel

    I love your disclaimer! This is the best disclaimer to date! Can I use bits and pieces of it? Thank you! :)

  34. says: Brad

    Awesome article! As so many others have said, this was so helpful in figuring out how best to make a disclaimer & make it interesting. With your permission, I would love to use parts of your disclaimer & tailor it to my own site. Thanks again!

  35. says: Astrid

    Hi Nienke,
    Thank God I had a chance to land on this blog of yours, it is so inspiring! I would like to ask your permission to use bits of your disclaimer for my blog, will that be okay?

  36. says: Wendy

    This was awesome! Thank you so much. Could I just put a Hyperlink that leads to the Disclaimer or does the full writeup need to represented.

    I would think the hyperlink would be fine and I also would shamelessly like to use parts of yours in mine as well. Its the first one online Ive read like a real person wrote it.


  37. says: Nina

    Hi Nienke! Thank you – I really laughed out loud with your disclaimer. Please may I use yours as a template for my own? (Novice blogger)

  38. says: Leah

    Hi Nienke,

    Thank you for sharing such practical and creative information. I am jumping into the blogging world and am glad to have stumbled upon this treasured resource. I would love to use parts of your disclaimer ideas along with my own unique twist. I love being creative!


  39. says: Jackie

    Hi Nienke, loving the disclaimer page! I wanted to ask for your expressed permission to use your disclaimer(s) and slightly modify it as well for my blog. I will also include the link back to your page as a reference source.

    Thank you again in advance :)

  40. says: Esther

    Hi Nienke, thank you for sharing your disclaimer – it’s creative and really helpful!
    I just started my blog too, can I refer to your templates and use part of the ideas?

  41. says: Noel

    Hello Nienke! I’m dropping by again to THANK YOU for being such an inspiration. I’ve recently launched my website, and I would like to thank you because you are one of those who inspired me to share my adventures too. Thanks for being selfless, sharing all your adventures with us. Thanks for your unending support to new bloggers like me. God bless you more! I hope to meet you one day (and have a selfie, please). Much love from me here in the Philippines! – Noel.

  42. says: Jessica

    I LOVEEEE your disclaimer! I searched for days to find one I enjoyed! Would you mind if I used some of it(excluding your information obviously) in mine? Your take on probably the most boring page of any blog is great!

  43. says: Ore

    Hi Nienke!

    This has been so helpful in many ways! Thanks for taking the time out to do this for others.

    I would love to use your disclaimers as a template for a blog I manage.

    Thanks again!

  44. says: Bru

    Hello Nienke, I love your disclaimer! I am just writing my own disclaimer and wanted to ask you if I can use parts of your disclaimer and adapt them. I would put a link to your website of course. Thank you so much in advance!

  45. says: Kelsie Smith

    Hey Nienke,

    Such an amazing twist on such a (usually) boring page!

    Your personality shines through!

    Would you mind if I used this as a template?

    Yours has been the most fun, yet covers everything that is needed.

    I would love to be able to adapt some of this, mostly structure, to my blog.

    Thanks in advance, excellent work!

  46. says: Jeanine

    This was fantastic! Panic mode was on full force until i came upon this. If you don’t mind, I would like to use this as a guideline? I would give credit where credit is due and provide a link to your website of course.

  47. says: MELINDA Martin-Khan

    Hi, Your information on the disclaimer page was really helpful. Thank you so much. I have tried to keep with the lighthearted approach you have taken, and tailored it to the theme of my blog (risk reduction for chronic disease, and life adventures). That topic needs humour. Here is my page – Thanks heaps.

  48. says: Maia

    Soy tu fan! Si me lo permites, básicamente sí voy a seguir tu estructura. PD: súper creativa, amé cómo escribes. BESOS.

  49. says: Brittany

    I thought this was very well written! I now understand legal things more better now. Like most others I was also wondering if I could use some parts of your disclaimer?

  50. This disclaimer has been so helpful. Now I finally understand what I need to write and how I can personalize it so it doesn’t sound so stuffy. I would also love to use parts of this disclaimer as a backbone to write my own if you don’t mind. I know you had stated at the end of this article that people were free to use it, but I also like to double check. Thanks so much in advance! Your work is greatly appreciated.

  51. says: estee

    This is a well written disclaimer, easy to understand. I hope I can use some parts to write a disclaimer for my blog. Thanks a lot!

  52. says: Melanie

    Thank you so much for providing this amazing disclaimer. I really appreciate that you are allowing the public to use it for their sites. I was stuck on mine for way too long and just about to lose it. hahaha. This has been a true gift.

  53. says: Jackee

    I love your disclaimer!! I am going to join most of the comments on here in asking if I could please use parts of your brilliant disclaimer for my new blog?! Also, I am wondering where on your website do you put the disclaimer? I dont see it as a tab on the top-is it a blog post? Or is it obvious right in front of me and I am not seeing it…? Where in NL are you?! We are moving there (from Nevada, US) next year and we are SO EXCITED!!! Maybe we can be real life friends as well as cyber friends in the future ;)

    1. says: Nienke Krook

      Hey Jackee! thanks and yes, go for it! I put my disclaimer as a single page, then I link from my footer (bottom of site) menu, as the page is not that important for SEO. How amazing you´re moving to Holland!! I hope you love it there! I am living in London since 3,5 years, so not a lot in the Netherlands anymore unfortunately!! If you´re ever in London, let me know!!

    Would love to use parts of this to frame my own disclaimer. So incredibly helpful. Thank you!!

  55. says: Naomi

    This is the best disclaimer I have seen! I would love to use parts of it for my blog too (if I ever get it live!), would you mind?

  56. says: Joe

    Hi, I love your disclaimer it’s very engaging especially for a disclaimer, would it be okay if I used some parts for my blog?

  57. says: Stephanie

    I would love to use some of this disclaimer on my new blog. I have no idea where to start on my own! It’s fantastic! Hope that is ok!

    What a refreshing take on a disclaimer. Especially for those of us who aren’t so serious, but still know we have to have the disclaimers for those knuckleheads out there. Like the others, I’d love to massage this for mine, if you don’t mind. Thanks!

    I started a blog and am now learning the legalities of it. I came across your blog and disclaimer and I was so happy to see you’re allowing other bloggers to use some of it. Thank you so much, you are so awesome!

    Thanks Nienke. I’ve been putting off writing this page because of its dull theme so was wonderful to be reminded that there is another way! I’ve done this sort of thing in the past but obviously forgotten I am allowed to express my personality still! Like many others, may I have your permission to weave some of your creativity into our own two required versions?

    Hi there! This has explained to me what a disclaimer should look like! Could I please base my blog disclaimer off yours as an example? Thanks!

  62. says: Raya

    Hi Nienke,

    Thank you for being generous with sharing your knowledge about writing a fun and serious blog disclaimer.

    I followed your template and tailored it to fit my personality and my blog. I also added an acknowledgment to you that links you back to your blog.

    Hi Nienke,

    What an awesome disclaimer you have here. Would it be okay to create my disclaimer using yours as inspiration and template? I will give credit of course! Thank you.

  64. says: Jordan Bauer


    I am starting my own blog. I love your disclaimer. May I use it a template for mine? I can also provide a link to your site for credit. Thank you! Please let me know :)

    I am loving this outline and am using it as a guide to my own disclaimers! I have referenced you and linked back to your awesome site. Thanks so much for the assistance!

  66. says: Susie

    Hi Nienke, I’m in love with your disclaimer. I’ve also used it as a guide for mine but I decided to be all serious. I will probably change it to something similar to yours in the future :) Thanks heaps!

    Hi Nienke,

    Great Job! I am just starting a blog and have found this a perfect platform! Please could I use it as a template for mine? I will of course link to your page!

    Hey Nienke,
    Wow, thank you for posting this. It has helped out significantly. I wanted to use some of your disclaimer…in my disclaimer. Is it possible to email you my complete disclaimer and you approve it. As well, I’d love to give credit to you as well. Thanks!

    Hi Nienke, I love your disclaimer! You’ve got a wonderful sense of humor. I was wondering if I could please use parts of your’s on my new blog? Thanks so much!

  71. says: Bonnie

    This post was so helpful! I’ve just set up my first blog and have no idea how to write a disclaimer. I would like to please follow this format and will provide a link to your site at the bottom. If you don’t mind?

  72. says: Noel Soriano

    Hello Nienke, you’ve got a very funny yet insightful disclaimer. Can I get inspiration from it, please? Thank you so much and take care on your travels! See you on the road!


  73. says: Christine

    I am busy using your disclaimer as a basis for mine. I am a new blogger at Thank you so much. It is so accessible and it is something that has been worrying me.

  74. Hey,

    I’m new to blogging, and I have just set up my blog. Yes, I know, Disclaimer is not very serious for me but, I wanna be on the safe side. Anything can happen to anybody no?

    So, can I use your Disclaimer as a template for mine? Is it OK?

    Really amazing read. Thanks for sharing this with us.

  75. says: Nicole

    This is genius. I’m not as funny as you so I’d love to use parts of this disclaimer, well the actual content text minus your lovely :)

  76. says: Soph

    Hi Nienke! This disclaimer made me smile, so well done on taking a dry topic and making it very readable! It’s great to see someone with a sense of humour online. I’m in the process of writing a proper disclaimer for my own blog, and your one is great inspiration. I can’t wait to read more of your work!

    Soph xo

  77. says: Sarah

    This is AMAZING. I’m in the process of adding a disclaimer to my blog; okay if I use yours as a template? Obviously will edit all pieces that are yours and don’t apply to my site, but would love to keep the fun flow and breaks from all the serious jargon with humor in my own disclaimer!

  78. says: Mike Hardley

    Hi There

    Awesome Disclaimer pages. Would it be possible to use the text and everything south of the Disclaimer as a template for my own blog site, amending it where required …

    There could be a packet of McVities Plain or Milk Chocolate Digestive biscuits on their way to you to help with re-writing those articles :)

    No website as yet … its early days for me

    Best Regards

  79. says: Jessica

    You are simply the best! I can’t tell you how much I stressed about writing a disclaimer for my own (brand spanking new) blog, and how many websites I researched trying to find a place that would break it down into easy steps. You not only did that, but then you gave your readers permission to use parts of it on our own websites! I was nearly in tears when I read those lines. THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU!
