What’s Included in the Photography Legal Bundle?

Our Photography Legal Bundle includes everything you need to run your photography business and stay protected!

1. Photography Contract

A Photography Contract sets out the legal agreement between a photographer and their clients.

It covers all of the important aspects of the agreement, including services, payment terms, intellectual property and limitation of liability. For every new client, you can customise this template to suit your requirements.

You need a proper written contract to enforce your rights and make sure your business is legally protected in case something goes wrong.

Our Photography Contract will help avoid misunderstandings and late payments.


2. Model Release Form

A Model Release Form is another really important document for photographers and videographers. It ensures you own the commercial rights to images or video you create and can use them commercially.

It’s important to always get a signed release form prior to shooting, regardless of whether the model is paid or unpaid.


3. Subcontractor Agreement

Use this for your Sub-Contractor/ Independent Contractor hires like second shooters, virtual assistants, photo editors, etc.

It helps to set the ground rules so that both parties can understand their obligations from the start. This contract contains all the essential ingredients, including services, payment, confidentiality, termination and limitation of liability.


4. Privacy Policy

A Privacy Policy is a document that explains how you will manage the personal information you collect from website visitors and customers. Most Australian websites need a privacy policy to comply with Australian privacy laws.

Even if you just have a simple website, you should have a Privacy Policy. There are sizable fines for breaching the Privacy Act, so it is important to comply.


5. Website Terms of Use

Website Terms of Use set out the rules for your website visitors. They are designed to protect you from the risks associated with running a website, and to protect your intellectual property as well.

Our Website Terms of Use template includes rules about what visitors can and can’t do on your website (such as post comments or share your content). It also includes a Website Disclaimer to limit your liability for any loss incurred by someone relying on the information on your website

Do I need a contract?

Yes, absolutely! A contract protects both you and your clients.

You should always have a contract signed before you start a new photography job for a client.

You need a proper written contract to enforce your rights and make sure your business is legally protected in case something goes wrong.

Our Photography Contract will help avoid misunderstandings and late payments. It also deals with the crucial issue of assigning copyright for completed work.


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 the commercial righs to the works so they can use them for promotion or advertising too.


How do I make sure i get credit for my work?

We have included a field in the Schedule for Credit so you can make sure you get attribution credit for your work if you want to have this.


Do I get to choose my own deposit amount and payment terms?

Yes, you do!

You can specify a deposit amount and a payment schedule for the balance of the fees.

We have also included the option for a Cancellation Fee, which you can charge if a client cancels a shoot within a certain amount of time from the shoot date.


Can I use the client’s name and logo to promote my work?

Yes, we have included a Promotion clause in the contract where the client gives consent for you to use their name and logo to promote your business.


Can’t I just copy these documents from another website?

Don’t do this.

1. This is copyright infringement and is against the law.

2. You might accidentally copy terms and conditions from another country – if you end up in court for some reason it might be on the other side of the world!

3. It won’t be customised to YOUR business. Not a good look for your customers if your info is wrong…


Can I customise the templates beyond editing the fields?

Our templates come in Word format, so yes you can if you want. Feel free to add your logo and change the font to reflect your brand.

We do not recommend you change the wording (apart from the fillable fields) as this can affect the legal protections contained in the document.


What if the law changes and my templates become outdated?

If the law changes, we’ll email you with the changes and updates to add to your existing templates. So please ensure you keep us updated if your email address changes.
