THE COMMERCIAL PHOTOGRAPHY CONTRACT FOR FREELANCE PHOTOGRAPHERS
$65. Now Less 40%!
It doesn’t matter whether you are newborn or wedding photographer. You need to be covered! The Commercial Photography Contract for freelance photographers is for use with clients who’ve hired you to take photos for commercial, portrait, or events. And of course it can be used also in other contexts, for example for weddings. This is an in-depth contract created to protect your rights and time from “difficult” clients, because as always, it is best to be crystal clear right from the start (in fact a straightforward “map” of your services could help a lot in this sense)
We’ve got you covered
In addition to the basic terms like shoot description, terms, fees and expenses, the contract covers:
BE THE EXCLUSIVE PHOTOGRAPHER
Make sure Uncle Bob with the brand new Canon Rebel doesn’t get in your way at an event.
PROTECT YOUR TIME
Establish a firm start and exit time.
ESTABLISH YOUR PRICING
Some charge a flat rate, others charge by the hour and there’s even room for a hybrid of the two. The Freelance Photography Contract makes it easy for you to customize.
DEFINE YOUR DELIVERABLES
Clearly explain what you’ll provide to the client. How many photos, what file formats, and even delivery method.
GET A NONREFUNDABLE RETAINER
Establish the importance of your time and commitment to a project with a nonrefundable deposit.
SET A DELIVERY DATE
Include is a specific time period when the client can expect to receive the photos.
LONG-TERM IMAGE RIGHTS FOR BOTH PARTIES
If a client pays you to take some photos, who owns the resulting images? Clearly state that you as a photographer retain the copyright of your photographs. Our contract template makes it easy for you to adjust the level of copyright freedoms given to a client. …and more!
What you’ll receive
As said, this photography contract can be used for commercial projects but also for weddings (more on wedding photography contracts here), and when you will purchase it, you’ll instantly receive the commercial photography contract in Portable Document Format (.PDF), Rich Text Format (.RTF), Plain Text Document (.TXT), and Microsoft Word Document (.DOCX) formats, making it easy to customize the contract to your specific needs.
However, should you need a deeper level of protection, we also have an image licensing contractthat will help prevent unauthorized use of your images.
Contract Mint has helped my photography business tremendously. From when I get paid to establishing my image rights. Thanks again!
