What you get:
01 - TFP PHOTOGRAPHY CONTRACT
This contract template was developed with the TFP/TFCD (Time for Print/Time for CD) sessions in mind. The contract clauses are reduced to a minimum, to make for a simple and clear document explaining the photographer’s and the model’s rights when a photo session is organized without any payment being required from either one of the parties. The photographer gives his or her time and talent as a photographer. The model gives his or her time, “look”, and image. Each party may then use the photographs for his or her self-promotion, but never in a commercial context.
02 - FAMILY PORTRAIT CONTRACTS A contract drafted in more “mainstream” terms, for family, individual, children and baby portraits.
03 - CORPORATE PORTRAIT CONTRACTS For individual or group portraits that will be used for a commercial purpose. It can be a simple “headshot” against a white background, or a more elaborate portrait on the business’s premises, such as portraits for real estate agents, or portraits for the “About Us” pages of a company website. If the use is more important and forms part of an advertising campaign, the template “Commercial Contracts” might be more appropriate.
04 - WEDDING CONTRACTS A civil or religious wedding.
05 - EVENT CONTRACTS The event contract template must be used when covering a convention, a corporate event, etc. Typically, it is a contract where you are being paid by the hour, but not necessarily.
06 - COMMERCIAL CONTRACTS Use this template if your client is a company, an organization or an institution, and you are taking photographs for commercial or advertising purposes.
07 - PHOTO LICENCE This template must be used when a client wishes to purchase a licence to use a photograph from your archives. Particular attention is given to the authorizations from models and properties (model releases) that you have (or do not have), and the consequences thereof are detailed for the client’s benefit.
