Bring Your Business into Focus

What do you see when you look through your lens? I bet you’re not just thinking about apertures and f-stops and how your subjects are posing (although that’s super important too).

No, you’re concentrating on something muuuuuch bigger than that… you’re thinking, “dang, this is cute, don’t screw it up! this is going to be hanging in their hallway forever when they see the finished product!” 

YOU, MY FRIEND, ARE NOT JUST A PHOTOGRAPHER.

YOU’RE IN THE BUSINESS OF MAKING AND PRESERVING MAGIC.

Here at The Contract Shop®, we’re allllll about magic. (Bring on the glitter bombs!) And as an occasional photographer myself, I have a special appreciation for how stressful it can be to make sure you’ve covered all your professional and legal bases—especially when your true passion is get that GASP moment when you flip the camera around to give your client a sneak peak.

But ya got some questions when it comes to that pesky legal stuff. Stop letting my emails pile up in the bottom of your inbox because you *really* know you should get to it soon, and start getting answers to your biggest questions, covered in a contract template.

CONTRACTS THAT COVER THINGS LIKE:

  • What if a client alters your finished photos?
  • What should be included in your contract? And what if your services change?
  • What if my client cancels? Do I have to give them all that money back?!
  • How should I price my travel?

Worry no more!

In our resource guide below, we’ve rounded up the best of the best from our blog and product list—helping you easily address your most pressing business concerns and get back to that magic-making-preserving thing.

UNDERSTANDING CONTRACTS

Do you really need a contract? Oh yes you do! (And I’m not saying that just because I’m a lawyer.) A contract gives both you and your client the security of knowing exactly what to expect and the ability to hash out any disagreements beforehand. Not sure what needs to be included?

COPYRIGHT AND LEGAL CONSIDERATIONS

Hands down, what’s a photographer’s biggest worry? Copyrights, no question. But what exactly are they, anyway? And when is someone in the wrong?

BUSINESS DOS & DON’TS

Think that the legal aspects of your business stop once you and your customer have signed a contract? Think again!
