Release of Liability Form
Continuing to photograph in the face of COVID-19/Coronavirus pandemic can be a necessity for many photography business owners.
That’s why we offer an affordable Release of Liability waiver tailored to photographers just like you. Our team of lawyers and photographers at TheLawTog® develop, review, and approve every release form.
A Release of Liability Form is a legal document between the Releasor (person promising not to sue), and the Releasee (person or company who is potentially liable).
By signing the document, your client agrees not to sue you (or your company), for past or future injuries or damages. This single document can give you peace of mind by eliminating the unknowns.
The immediate download of our Release of Liability includes a parent release for minors as well. This releases the event host of liability for injury, certification of ability to participate, and more.
Need to reschedule a photography event or session? Be sure to do it legally with a lawyer-drafted addendum. Simply fill it out, execute with client and attach to your original contract!
Force Majeure Clause
Force Majeure clause is a provision in a contract that excuses a party from not performing its contractual obligations that becomes impossible or impracticable, due to an event or effect that the parties could not have anticipated or controlled.
Note: This is not a full contract. This is only a provision to be added to your existing services contract.

Why choose TheLawTog?
Headed by Rachel Brenke, TheLawTog is the only dedicated resource for photographers. With practicing lawyers, business consultants, CPA, financial planners (and more!) you’ll get information with first-hand experience to help your photography business.
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.
