Are you ready to get more clients through business affiliations?
If you’re not ready – this document can still help. It will guide you on what you could propose.
If you are ready – let us get you protected. This affiliation agreement is going to help to set expectations and legal protection of the relationship.
As a photographer, it can be tempting to go it alone. But professional isolation can be dangerous. Being too independent can damage your business and burn you out.
Affiliating with another company can be an effective way to not only save yourself from burnout but take your business to the next level. By teaming up with other companies, you can acquire clients and grow your business.
From boutiques to florists, caterers to salons, business affiliations can be key to your success as a photographer.
That’s why our team of lawyers and photographers at TheLawTog® developed, reviewed, and approved this Business Affiliation Contract. We think this is a pretty awesome combo—legal expertise and photographer know-how.
This business affiliation contract will help you set expectations and legally protect the affiliate relationship. The document is intended for referral fees for referred and booked clients, along with the inclusion of photographer marketing materials and photograph displays in the Business Vendor’s workplace.
Not quite ready for affiliates? This document can serve as a helpful guide on what you could propose when the time comes.

Here is a cliff notes for you:
I am a lawyer, but I’m not your lawyer!
While TheLawTog strives to keep its legal contract templates current, accurate and up-to-date, TheLawTog cannot guarantee that all the information available at thelawtog.com (including related domains and subdomains) (the “Sites’), or information provided in templates and products obtained from TheLawTog, is current at all times or in all areas. TheLawTog provides general documents we hope will be helpful to those of you who have chosen to complete your own legal documents. While TheLawTog makes an effort to keep our legal documents current and updated, because the law is constantly changing and varies among jurisdictions, TheLawTog can in no way guarantee the effectiveness of its services, products or any materials in any particular jurisdiction. Therefore, in all cases, especially those that are very particular or complex in nature, TheLawTog encourages you to seek the advice of a licensed attorney for your jurisdiction.
Nothing contained in the Sites or available through the products, materials and services of TheLawTog is intended to form an attorney-client relationship. Your interaction with TheLawTog in any capacity does not form such a relationship. TheLawTog’s performance of services related to those offered through the Sites, information provided on the Sites, and products sold through the Sites likewise does not create an attorney-client relationship in any particular circumstance.
In addition, from time to time, TheLawTog may introduce you to licensed attorneys through various referral methods. However, at no time is an attorney-client relationship fostered or created with TheLawTog due to these complimentary services, for which TheLawTog does not take any fee or engage in any profit-sharing. Whether or not you choose to pursue such referral or related legal services is entirely your decision and is provided by TheLawTog only as a courtesy.
Finally, The Law Tog does not intend to create any attorney-client relationship and your use of TheLawTog’s Sites, templates and other services, products and resources does not create an attorney-client relationship.
