Portrait Agreement | Legal Forms for Photographers
One of the most crucial aspects of owning a photography business is managing the legal aspect of client contracts. I partnered with an incredible, combo photographer-lawyer extraordinaire, to help create a standard for legal forms that specifically target the photography industry. She created amazing legal forms for professional photographers to use that nail down the important legal side with such detail without over complicating them and keeping it easy for photographers to understand and explain to clients.
Once you’ve purchased and downloaded the legal form, it is yours to keep forever! Use these forms to create legally binding contracts with your clients to protect your yourself, your business, and clients. Most contracts involve provisions like contact information, payment information, session dates, services needed, liability, copyright, and more.
You can customize the forms to fit your photography brand, but we advise you do not alter the contract language too much to prevent any accidental changes that can affect the authenticity of the contract.
