Who can use these Photographer Terms of Business?

These Photographer Terms of Business are for use by a photographer who wants to have a document that clearly sets out the terms and conditions on which he or she takes on work for a client.

What are these Photographer Terms of Business for?

Our template includes a Project Form with details of the photography assignment, type of photos, fees etc. to be completed and signed, to evidence the contract.

There is a one-page small-print version of the Terms of Business (which can be printed on the back of the Project Form if required) as well as standard A4.

What are the main issues?

For the photographer, apart from being clear on the scope of the project and payment terms, he/she will most likely want to retain copyright in the images, while the client has a licence to use those images. Sometimes the client will want copyright, but if agreed, it should be conditional on all payments due to the photographer being made before copyright is released.

The terms of business may also limit the photographer’s liability, not least in a force majeure situation – e.g. if images are lost in transit via email or if the photographer’s equipment is damaged.

As with most creative contracts, the photographer will be sensible to get a down payment when booked for an appointment.  And if substantial travel or overnight accommodation is needed, these costs may be recoverable in certain circumstances.

What detailed terms does the Terms of Business contain?

The main points cover:

  • services
  • information, approval, release
  • standard of care
  • fees and expenses
  • changes
  • intellectual property
  • liability
  • termination & cancellation
  • force majeure
  • law & jurisdiction
  • a general clause detailing notices, assignment and subcontracting, and the scope of the agreement
