Mini-Session Contract: This agreement addresses all the pertinent areas any photography business owner should have to legally protect their business for photography mini-sessions.

Includes legal must-haves: 

  • limitations on scope of photographic services due to nature of "mini"
  • products included in session
  • all monies paid up front
  • all monies non-refundable if client fails to show or cancels
  • limitations on number of photographed individuals
  • booking, payment, reschedule & cancellation
  • late arrivals & weather schedules
  • styling
  • photographic materials & artistic rights
  • additional purchases
  • cooperation
  • photography & videography restrictions
  • failure to perform
  • substitute photographer
  • indemnification & liability
  • legal miscellany

Model Releases: 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 eliminates the unknowns around usage of client photos to protect you from legal action. It is generally signed by the subject of a photograph and covers the following perpetual and irrevocable specifics:

-Client gives permission for use of face, legal or attributed name (publicity rights) in marketing and other purposes and waives right to potential claims of compensation for use of their publicity rights
 -Photographer retains ownership of photograph and retains right of discretion and no requirement of client to inspect unless a specific limited release is chosen
 -Liability waived against photographer for use of photographs containing client’s publicity rights

This download includes three model releases:
-Standard release form - a standard model release document used for standard photographer usage of photographs and client’s publicity rights.
-Limited release by client's choice of specific photographs
-Limited release to exclude photographs containing specific contents from being published

Print Release: The print release form is readily customizable to be included with digital file orders to outline the dos and don'ts of what 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.

The drafting of these documents by legal professionals would typically cost an average of $1,800. However, by purchasing this bundle, photographers can save hundreds while ensuring comprehensive legal coverage and peace of mind.

  • Can I edit the contracts?

Yes! They come as .doc files so you can fill-in-the-blank, remove or add what you need. We provide options and headings to easily allow for editing.

  • Can I use these contracts if not in the US?

TheLawTog®’s contract forms are drafted on general American law-based contract principles and are applicable to many states.  Due to variations in law based on location and business policies, the contracts are editable and easily adaptable. If you are a photographer outside the US, the policies may be implemented for your business, but U.S. Federal Copyright laws and other legal theories may not apply.  For example, in the United States, unless otherwise contracted, the photographer retains copyright ownership of images. However, in other countries, the law may give the copyright ownership to the client and necessitate a provision for transfer.
