The Boudoir Contract

The boudoir photography contract covers the pertinent areas any photography business owners should have to cover themselves legally and creates the relationship with the client.

Includes provisions such as retainer with liquidated damages, payment, cancellation, rescheduling, late arrivals, completion schedule, use of independent contractor, use of alcohol, body alteration guidelines, reservation of right to reschedule, artistic rights, creative control, photographic materials defined, copyright ownership, failure to perform, standard price list, travel and overage fees, and legal miscellany.

Model Release

If you plan to use your images for advertising or portfolio purposes, a model release form is an essential way to protect your photography business. A model release is generally signed by the subject of a photograph. It gives you permission to license or use the image.

This form also releases any claims the client may have to future compensation for use of images. This protects you from legal action and eliminates the unknowns around publishing images.

These model release forms allow clients to easily and legally give permission for use of their photographic images (not audio or video).

General Release: general model release language
Limited Release: allows client to limit the use of their images by the photographer

(Included in The Basics, The Essentials & The Ultimate Bundle Set)

Print Release

The print release form is readily customizable to be included with digital file orders to outline the do’s and dont’s that the client can do with your art. This gives the client the permission to print only – does not give permissions for commercial or other uses. This does reemphasize the copyright laws. (Included in The Essentials & The Ultimate Bundle Set)
