Making a Photography Contract
A Photography Contract is a legal agreement that outlines the scope, payment timeline, and due dates for photography services. With signatures from both the photographer and the client, this contract can help to create a shared understanding and limit future conflicts.
Unlike the generic PDF templates that you may find on another site, your Photography Agreement comes with the option of Document Defense®, so an On Call attorney can reach out on your behalf if you don't receive payment or experience any other problem.
It is fast and easy to document the details of your projects using a free Photography Agreement template from Rocket Lawyer:
This method is often going to be much less expensive and less time-consuming than finding and hiring a conventional attorney to draft the document for you. If you've got any particular concerns or questions before you begin, connect with a lawyer from our network. Also feel free to check out our larger collection of business legal documents.
Even if you are being hired by a friend or family member, the Photography Contract is a document that should never be missed. These benefits might help to inform your decision to use one:

As you would expect, Photography Contracts made with Rocket Lawyer also include the typical legalese with regard to the independent work relationship between the parties, confidentiality, liability for losses, and dispute resolution methods. While making your agreement, you'll also have the ability to designate which state will govern it. With the document tool, you are able to implement additional customization, as necessary.
In order to make the contract legally binding, you and the client need to sign it. RocketSign® makes this process easy. As a best practice, be sure to provide a final copy of the signed agreement to the client. With a Rocket Lawyer membership, you also may make a copy, print, and save it as a Word document or PDF file as necessary.
Depending on who is asked, some lawyers will not even agree to review documents that they didn't author. A more favorable approach worth consideration is to request help from attorney services at Rocket Lawyer. By becoming a Premium member, you will be able to request advice from an experienced attorney or get answers to other questions about your Photography Agreement. As always, we're here for you.
