BizRevamp® - TheLawTog®


Is your photography business legal? Or are you just pretending it is?

I was where you are right now. 

Overwhelmed. Stressed. Just needing a helping hand!

See – I started my photography business while I was in law school, pregnant, and with a small child in tow.  

As if that wasn’t difficult enough, my active-duty military husband was deployed. So effectively, I was single-handedly managing home and business.

Even when he was back, we were constantly moving! In fact: we have moved 5 different times in the past few years, and all those times I’ve had to re-start my business all over again!

One night I sat down on the floor and cried for hours because it was all too much. I wanted to provide them with a fabulous customer experience but the fear of failing them overwhelmed me. If I made the wrong move I could lose everything we had worked so hard to build.  The fear of being held liable if I made a mistake, need for perfection, and stress of it all had broken me.

Here’s the thing though, I knew how to protect my biz (And yours!) from all of those fears.

I knew how to efficiently and successfully do this. To spend more time on photography and family – than yucky legal stuff.

And I’m always giving presentations on these topics of photography alongside the very best photography educators in the world like WPPI, Susan Stripling, Sue Bryce, CreativeLive, and more!

Today I have 5 children, I’m a working lawyer with an MBA – and owner of two photography studios.

But best of all, I use systems that allow me to spend time with my family and protect what I have built.

Basically, I’m the only lawyer-photographer with a proven record, and legitimate credentials to help you kick start your ENTIRE business into high gear.

-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.
