Second Shooter Contract
Second shooters are simply the best when it comes to photographing busy weddings and events. With so much to capture (and never enough time) the “insurance policy” of having another photographer in tow is ALWAYS a good idea. Not to mention it’s nice to NOT feel alone in a crowd of wedding guests. But bringing on a second shooter isn’t all sunshine + good vibes. What happens when they give you a memory card filled with subpar photos? Or splash your client’s wedding all over the front page of their website? What if you find out they DMed your client to try to gain their business?
With the TLP Second Shooter Contract, you’ll be able to bring on a second shooter with confidence knowing that you are setting proper expectations + boundaries from the get go.
This contract covers situations like:
- Reinforcing your second shooter’s Independent Contractor status.
- Setting expectations for how your second shooter can use their images from your client’s event.
- Requirements for what you want your second shooter during the day-of.
- Non-solicitation + non-disparagement.
