Do I need a contract for my clients?
Heck yes. If you run your photography business without a contract – you’re exposed. If something goes wrong, you have no fallback. Is that how you want to do business?
If you’re lying awake at night wondering about when you’ll get “The Email”. You know: “The Email” that makes your tummy flop and your milk turn sour – you need this contract.
No one needs that stress in their life. It’s simple, easy, fast, and legally binding. Get yourself sorted in 15 minutes.
Who owns the legal rights to the content?
We have written our contract so that the photographer retains all legal rights to the photos and videos they take.
Once full payment is received, the photographer grants a licence to the client to use the photographs or video for the purposes set out in the contract. We have worded this to provide extra protection for the photographer’s rights.
The photographer continues to hold commercial rights to the works to use them for promotion or advertising.
Can I use the client’s name and logo to promote my work?
We have included a Promotion clause in the contract where the client gives you consent to use their name and logo to promote your business. You can delete this clause from the Photography Contract template if your client wants to remain anonymous or doesn’t give permission for you to use them for promotion.
Why should I invest in a quality Photography Contract template?
You’ve spent countless hours dedicated to learning how to attract the right clients.
Your heavy financial investments in your own personal growth are slowly but surely paying off.
You’re not going to let all that go to waste with a crappy contract, are you?
The booking process is the most fragile part of the selling process. Don’t let your future clients slip away with a shady contract pieced together like Frankenstein.
With this contract template, your clients will know you take your business seriously. You’ll stand out from your competition, but best of all, your clients will trust you right from the start.
A great investment
Having this contract template has given so much more confidence and security. Thanks for such a thorough document for me to strap onto any sized assignment.
Excellent content, but not natively Mac-compatible
Great content, I feel that as a photographer all clauses that need inclusion are included. The only issue I have is that I don’t use Micrrosoft Word - like most Mac users don’t. We use Apple Pages, which will open MS Word docs but some functionality is not compatible. If you’re going to sell an “Apple Version” please make sure that it is re-written and supplied as a “.pages” document.
