Docracy, a site which bills itself as “the web’s only open collection of legal contracts”, has a useful collection of free photography legal contracts online. Here’s the link.

“This is a handpicked, free to use set of the most common and important sample legal forms for photographers, contributed by professional photographers, photography associations, and lawyers.”

The free photography contracts include:

  • Model Release
  • Minor Model Release
  • Portrait Photography Agreement
  • Music Artist Portrait Session
  • Gallery Contract for Sale of Photography
  • Licensing Contract to Merchandise Images
  • Contract for Wedding Photography Services
  • License of Rights for Photography
  • Property Release

Here’s an example:

Property Release

“You should always get model releases for photos that show a recognizable subject if you will be using the photo for commercial use. If you are not sure how the image will ultimately be used, it is always safer to get a release. In most cases you do not need a release to actually capture the photo.”
