FIRST RULE OF BUSINESS:

PROTECT YOUR ASS

 

It cant be all feelings and good vibes and pinkie promises. Contracts are a necessary side of any business transaction, but more importantly, one where you are the only person providing services for a hefty investment. Your client needs to know what to expect from you and you need a good format for outlining your business practices and policies.

I wish I could say with 100% confidence that  you will always have wonderful, understanding clients and you will never experience a technical meltdown where your expensive equipment self destructs or you have someone plaster your images on a magazine cover without permission, but I’m not a good liar. 

Bad things happen to the best people but I’ve got you. My contract is made through and through from my experiences, both imagined worst case scenarios that haven’t happened (and fingers crossed, never will) and those rare but realized lessons we all learn in life.

Its difficult to know what to put in, what’s important to outline and how to set boundaries that protect both yourself and your client. When I first started my business, one of the the things I struggled most with was the contract. They were crazy expensive to buy online and lawyers cost hundred of dollars an hour to build one.  I recently decided to make mine available to those out there who are just like I was. Lawyer approved and all!  You can add to it, you can subtract from it. Do what you need to make it your own.

THE REVIEWS

“Her contracts are beefed up to protect you and your clients, based on real life experiences and also attorney reviewed. Easy to customize and downright thorough. So happy to be using these in my own business. Thank you Laurken!!!”

-Erin Northcutt Photography

“Invest in protecting yourself! One thing I vowed to do this year before beginning bookings for 2019 was refresh my contract. When I heard Laurken was releasing hers for sale, I knew I had to buy it. She’s a photographer I respect, and I know she understands the importance of “covering your ass”. As soon as I purchased this and scanned through it, I saw a few pieces my previous contract was missing. A few pieces that are HUGE to protecting yourself and clarifying your relationship with your client. She covers everything from copyright to social media, to making sure your meal is HOT! hahaha. Classic. For $65, I can’t think of a better thing to buy to potentially protect yourself from headaches or lawsuits down the road. Definitely would recommend this to anyone who is just starting out or who has been photographing for years and needs a refresh. “
