    Friend of mine expressed interest in hiring me to shoot a set of real estate photos. I'd like to try and do it right the first time by having a legal agreement for us both to sign. Where do you find such documents or do you have to get a lawyer to make one up for you?

    LOCAL lawyer is best. If you live in the UK and surf the net, find something from Alabama or some desolate place in Canada... your client will laugh at you for the simple reason that laws change from place to place, much less from country to country... and this is an international forum and I don't even see a country or city in your profile.

    Yeah that question is the one important one. That and agreed usage and pricing structure. Are you planning on charging per shoot or, per hour?

    Thanks. I pretty much have that portion drawn out and verbally agreed. I was looking for a standard agreement or basic legal mumbo-jumbo to use as a base to cover those items you don't normally think about kinda like a catch-all. I was hoping there was a place I could purchase a standard doc like you can with a home purchase agreement. Paying a lawyer starts at a minimum of $250-500.

    There is a book called business and legal forms for photographers that should have a contract that will work or can be slightly modified to work. The author is Tad Crawford.

    I had a response typed up and apparently it didn't stick but I think this scenerio works the best since I will already have a pay rate / service agreement anyways. A simple inclusion of uses would be a good idea.

    I agree, not a problem, that's my work ethic.
