    I charge the same rate as I do for any other commercial work - $125/hr.

    If I have a change to do political campaign photography, I will do it for free in hope to change my career later.
    Just kidding!

    Not sure if things have changed, but years ago we had to start requiring payment up front for political ads in the newspaper as the losing parties had a bad habit of not paying.

    The site has changed and I don't see sample forms. There are some things on the site that are available to members only.

    I have a book by Tad Crawford that I found thru ASMP which has sample forms that can be copied, scanned, downloaded, whatever (came with a CD). Try Amazon.

    Did a search and found these resources.
    contracts Archives - ASMP
