What to include in a freelance photography contract.
Many businesses and individuals need to hire a photographer. If you’re thinking of becoming a freelance photographer, a well-crafted contract is a must have.
If you have a knack for taking pictures, understand image composition, and know how to use lighting to tell a story or create a mood, you may make a great photographer. Many photographers work as freelancers, and they shoot special events, generate product photos, or work in the fashion industry. It can be a great way to make a living or create some extra income.
How to create a contract as a freelance photographer.
Before starting your first assignment as a freelance photographer, you will need a contract between you and your client. It doesn’t have to be complicated, but there are some essential things to include when creating a contract. The list below will help you get started.
Here is a list of important items to include in a freelance photographer contract:
- A clear description of the work you will perform and your deliverables
- If you’re covering a special occasion, like a wedding, include the event date
- The number of photographs included in your price
- Your pay rate — either a per image or a fixed price for the entire project
- When you’’ be paid once you’ve delivered the photographs
- A place for the client to sign and agree to your terms
