Senior photos are a big deal. They’re not just another school picture. They celebrate a huge milestone for high school graduates while boosting their self-esteem.
As senior portraits become more elaborate, the process can be increasingly overwhelming for photographers. From contracts and release forms, to social media usage and printing rights, the complexities are intimidating.
Rachel Brenke is an active practicing lawyer for photographers who intimately understands laws that impact people just like you — making TheLawTog the best solution for your photography contract templates.
She knows the proper legal and strategic items to include in your contract so you’re protected + offering customer service + setting expectations.
Whether you’re starting out, shooting for free, or an experienced professional, legal protection is extremely important.
Every contract template we provide is easy to edit and should be tailored to reflect business policies and laws in your state.
Are these good for outside of the United States? These are general contract templates drafted on United States contract principles – you can view the entire explanation HERE of how to utilize these from state-to-state and outside of the United States.
Can I edit these? Yes! As you go through you fill in the blanks, as well as you can edit for your jurisdiction and business needs.
What extension do these files come in?
All contracts come as Microsoft Word document files.
Typically opened in Microsoft Word BUT they can be opened a variety of ways without Microsoft Word, such as through Note Pad, Text Edit, Google Docs. Keep in mind – opening in these systems may not show the color coding – just be mindful of notes that we have placed in the contract to help you fill it out.
Tutorial: If you do NOT have Word, press/hold control + click on the file. A pop up will come up. Choose “Open with” and select the program you want to use.
Google Docs Tutorial: Select File Upload in Google docs. Choose your downloaded Word doc. Open it in Google Drive (if you want to edit).
Please note: An alternate version of the contract will not be sent. Compatibility and accessibility is responsibility of the user.
