What Is a Real Estate Photography Contract?

A real estate photography contract outlines the terms and conditions of a collaboration between a real estate photographer and a client. Using a contract when booking a real estate photography job is prudent because it:

  • Protects both parties
  • Documents the services, turnaround, and payment
  • Makes the collaboration legal

It would be a good idea to strengthen the document’s legality even further by having it notarized. DoNotPay can assist you in getting this and any other document notarized online!

Other Ways of Creating a Real Estate Photography Contract

If you don’t feel like writing a photography contract from scratch is right up your alley, you can explore the other two options:

  1. Hiring a lawyer to draw up the agreement
  2. Downloading an online contract template 

Check out the details of both methods in the table below:

Hiring an attorney to write a contractUsing an online contract template
Attorneys know all about state-specific legal requirements, so you can be sure the document will be enforceable in court. They will include all necessary sections and give you a ton of useful advice. 

The only downside is the price—lawyers are fairly expensive, so it is worth considering whether their services are necessary for every contract

While downloading an online contract template looks like a simple solution, it comes with many disadvantages. Free templates often contain grammatical and spelling errors or lack crucial sections, which is why you have to correct them after downloading. 

The best option would be to have a lawyer go over the contract after you finish customizing it. They won’t charge you as much for reviewing an already written document
