Photographer's Terms of Business

Photographer Terms and Conditions (Commercial)


Many freelance photographers offer their services to consumers and business clients alike and in both cases should be covered by comprehensive terms and conditions of business.

This document is compliant with the GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation).

These Photographer Terms and Conditions have been updated with comprehensive new standard (“boilerplate”) clauses ensuring a higher degree of legal quality and certainty. Adjustments have also been made to bring this document in line with a new counterpart contract template.

This document is designed for use by photographers providing their services to businesses for use in commercial projects such as marketing materials, publications and websites. Under these terms of business licences are granted for individual projects undertaken by the customer with royalties payable for each project (but not for repeated uses within the same project).

Clauses in this set of terms and conditions cover key factors including payment, the photography services themselves and the always-important issue of copyright and licensing. Over and above the terms included in the non-commercial version of this template, a detailed clause also addresses insurance, liability and indemnity.

An alternative version of this document is also available which provides for non-commercial usage of the photographer’s work.
