Photography Contracts

Wedding & Event Photography Client Contract

$125.00

As a photographer, many potential liabilities are inherent in your important role of documenting a wedding or event. A solid client agreement is a fundamental piece of the puzzle when it comes to protecting your business and personal assets. Your client agreement also helps you control client expectations by spelling out your policies and procedures in a binding manner. This contract template includes important clauses such as payment deadlines and policies, late fees, copyright ownership, wedding and event cancellation and postponement policies, the effect of a natural disaster (aka "force majeure"), dispute resolution, turnaround times for delivery of images and products, and much more. Your Wedding & Event Photography Client Contract comes with an easy-to-use Contract Guide to walk you through set-up and customization of the contract, as well as providing you with plain-language explanations of the terms and conditions.

Wedding & Event Photography Client Contract

Independent Contractor Agreement

$125.00

With the frequency of worker classification-related audits ever increasing, it is crucial to use written contracts with each independent contractor engaged by your business, such as second shooters.  An independent contractor agreement outlines the relationship between your business and the contractor, as well as covering important issues like the copyright ownership of photographs created by the contractor while performing services for your business, confidentiality of company trade secrets and dispute resolution.  Your Law for Creatives Independent Contractor Agreement comes with an easy-to-use Contract Guide to walk you through set-up and customization of the contract, as well as providing you with plain-language explanations of the terms and conditions.

Independent Contractor Agreement

Portrait Photography Client Agreement

$95.00

Many photographers overlook the importance of using written contracts with portraiture clients, but this should be a consistent practice in your business. A written agreement with your clients addresses important issues such as copyright ownership, model releases, cancellation and postponement policies, turnaround times for delivery of images and products, and much more.

Portrait Photography Client Agreement

Photo Shoot Collaboration Agreement

$55.00

When you are planning and producing a collaborative photo shoot for wedding and event inspiration or other similar projects, the best way to ensure that all of the participating parties are on the same page is by using a written contract that explains the expectations of the parties and the plans for the shoot. The Photo Shoot Collaboration Agreement covers topics like: identifying the parties and the services and goods they are providing for the shoot; copyright ownership of the images; a "Publication Plan" for the submission of the images to third party publications; specifying when the participants are allowed to use the images for their own websites, blogs and social media accounts; what happens when a participating vendor does not comply with the terms of the agreement; how disputes between the participating vendors are handled; and how the terms of the agreement are to be modified (and the template agreement comes with a sample addendum for amendments made after the signing of the contract).  The Photo Shoot Collaboration Agreement comes with a Contract Guide that walks you through the Contract Template, explaining the language and how to make adjustments to customize the agreement for your business.

As with all Law for Creatives contract templates, your template purchase is for your own business use only and entitles only you to a copyright license for use of the contract language (in template and customized formats), and contract templates may not be shared with other businesses or individuals or posted online. While other vendors may receive and sign a copy of the Photo Shoot Collaboration Agreement when working with you on a photo shoot, copying of the contract language by the non-purchasing vendors for their own subsequent use constitutes a violation of copyright law.

Photo Booth Client Contract

$125.00

A thorough client contract is a must when providing photo booth rental services, helping you limit your potential liability while controlling client expectations and responsibilities. This template contract addresses important topics such as payment deadlines and policies, fees for adding additional hours of photo booth services or other services/products, late fees, copyright ownership and usage of the photo booth images, minimum space and power requirements at the event venue, event cancellation and postponement policies, the effect of a natural disaster (aka "force majeure"), limitation of your liability (including dealing with issues like equipment malfunction, power outages and venue restrictions), dispute resolution, and much more. Your Photo Booth Client Contract Template comes with an easy-to-use Contract Guide to walk you through set-up and customization of the contract, as well as providing you with plain-language explanations of the terms and conditions.

Employee Agreement

$125.00

Every employer should consistently use written contracts to formalize the relationship with their workers.  This agreement is intended for use with true employees (W-2 employees, not 1099 independent contractors).  An employment contract covers important topics like wage specifications, fringe benefits, copyright ownership of photos created by the employee while working for your company, confidentiality of company trade secrets and how to terminate employment.  Your Law for Creatives Employee Agreement comes with an easy-to-use Contract Guide to walk you through set-up and customization of the contract, as well as providing you with plain-language explanations of the terms and conditions.

Employee Agreement

Photographer Volunteer Intern Agreement

$75.00

Any time you engage the services of a worker, whether an unpaid intern or a regular employee, you should always have a written agreement between your company and the worker.  For unpaid interns, it is especially important that the contract terms make it very clear that the intern is not entitled to compensation, fringe benefits or workers' compensation insurance, and that there is no guarantee of employment at the end of the internship.  It is also important to have confidentiality/non-disclosure language, since your interns may be privy to your business's confidential and proprietary information, including trade secrets.  Your Law for Creatives Volunteer Intern Agreement covers all of these important clauses, and comes with an easy-to-use Contract Guide to walk you through set-up and customization of the contract, as well as providing you with plain-language explanations of the terms and conditions.

Photographer Volunteer Intern Agreement

Boudoir Photography Client Contract

$95.00

Boudoir photography presents a special set of issues due to the nature of the images, and using a written contract with your boudoir clients should be a consistent practice in your photography business. The template agreement addresses important issues such as copyright ownership, use of the images and privacy concerns, cancellation and postponement policies, turnaround times for delivery of images and products, and more. Your Boudoir Photography Client Contract comes with an easy-to-use Contract Guide to walk you through the set-up and customization of the contract template, as well as providing you with plain-language explanations of the terms and conditions.
