Assignment 11: Freelance Contract due 10/30

Post  Admin on Fri Oct 23, 2015 9:51 am

You have met with your client and agreed on the type of work they want you to do. Now it's time to draw up a contract with them.
You can use the internet as a resource - you will find sample freelance contracts for photography, videography, etc. You will make edits as needed. Make sure you include who owns the rights to the work. Can the client reproduce the work an infinite amount of times without your permission? Can you reproduce the work for your own shows or portfolio without their permission?

Include your price. Are you charging one flat rate? Are you charging a per hour rate?

Email your contract to me as a word or pdf attachment, or a link to a google doc (but make sure to share the file with me). MAKE SURE your subject line follows this format:

It is the client’s responsibility to confirm all arrangements at least 7-10 days prior to the event. In the event of change of address or contact information (time, etc.) as
listed, you must notify the Photographer.
The Photographer kindly asks that the Client get in touch with the Photographer two weeks prior to the date of the event in order to touch base and go over last minute details. The Photographer will make every effort to contact the Client, but it is the Client’s responsibility to contact the Photographer to confirm all events and times.
