Freelance Photography Contract Template

Yes! I Want My Protection

All our contract templates handle the basics of a bulletproof agreement. With the Freelance Photographer Contract Template you'll also have all the provisions that are important for Photographers:
  • Scope of Work Defined

    We lay out the details of the project between you and your client, including deadlines, what type of instructions client provides to photographer, rate of pay, etc. That way there’s no miscommunication at the outset regarding your project.

  • Who Owns Your Photos?

    We include a provision as to who owns the final edited photos as well as the proofs. Or, alternatively you can choose the following option.

  • Reproduction Rights

    We include a provision for you to retain reproduction rights as well as copyrights of your photos for the client. That way you get paid a reproduction rate that you specify every time the client requests a photo.

  • Delivery of Work

    We specify the medium you’ll submit your work to the client – prints or digital, if scouting the location will be included as part of the project, final editing and coloring of project. This eliminates any miscommunication about how the project will proceed.

“Why do You Need a Freelance Photography Contract?”

Don’t leave your photography work unprotected and your money on the table…

Your pictures are important. You invest your hard-earned dollars into your photography equipment. You’re an artist who takes their work seriously. Don’t work without a contract not only to protect your photos from image theft by your clients (I’m not accusing your client of stealing – they may unknowingly be using your work without your permission) but from also leaving a lot of money on the table from your client’s use of possibly unpaid pictures.

We know your busy scouting locations, setting up photo shoots, creating proofs and developing film…you don’t have time to worry about the legal stuff. But you also can’t afford not to.

That’s why we here at The Contract Guys – three attorneys who know the unique needs of your photography work – developed solid legal contracts with you in mind.

A fellow photographer recommended me The Contract Guys after a dramatic experience with a client. I never want to experience such a thing myself so your contract is a life-saver for me.

This really happened to me: For a new client I made a super nice mock up that was rejected. The client told me he wanted to go for another designer because he ‘didn’t like my style’. A few weeks later I saw my mock up being turned into a beautiful website. Learned the merits of a contract the hard way!
