I have a friend asked me if I’d be willing to do a fall family photo shoot for their family, and a local moms group that my sisters and I provide childcare for that had mentioned they may ask me to do family photos for the families in their group at some point. Even though in these situations it feels overly formal to have a contract since I’m working with people I know, I thought it would be a good thing to think about if this is something I’m going to be doing to some degree or another. So I was wondering if anyone has thoughts on what to include in a contract, what kinds of wording you use, things to think about or be aware of, etc.September 25, 2018 at 4:06 pm #33755Daniel HancockParticipant
I’d try to answer the following questions: Who owns the copyright? How many photos will they receive? What if they don’t like the photos? When will they pay? How will they be delivered?September 26, 2018 at 5:44 pm #33803Joseph CamusoParticipant
@Bennett-family, Recently, James did post on the Lenspiration blog that has some great info about photography contracts! I know it is dealing specifically with weddings, but I’m sure most of it would still apply. 😀September 26, 2018 at 6:55 pm #33810Lydia BennettParticipant
I hadn’t remembered that part of that blog post, Joseph, so thanks for mentioning that!
One paragraph in that blog post said,
Also, here’s a little tip! You do not have to hire a lawyer to write a contract for you! There are lots of great ones out there that you can use as a template to fit your needs.
Any idea where I might find templates? It would be nice just to see how different people word their contracts or the setup they have.
