It’s time to get all your portrait clients under an easy to use contract! Clearly lay out the expectations your clients can have from you, accurately describe the terms of service, and make it known what you need to have to be successful as their photographer.
We developed this Portrait Contract Template over the course of a year to address the most important aspects of photographing a client’s portrait session. It was reviewed several times with the advice of lawyers, clients, and from our own experiences in photographing thousands of portrait sessions. The intent is not to cover every nuance related to the photographic process, and no contract can address every scenario. We do our best here to discuss likely issues that need to be covered and provide a mechanism for resolving those issues.
The template is ready-to-use as is, but we recommend tailoring it to your business. It can be used as a paper document or installed into your studio management software (such as ShootQ.) Every provision has an explanation written with it and resources necessary for you to adjust it for your business’s state and country.
