Illuminate Workshops Message Board › Business Help Needed!!
|A former member||
Hey Illuminate Workshop Members:
I am looking for a little help today! I am a professional photographer in training embarking on my first paid session (I have photographed a ton of family and small concerts) ... Help me!
I have a local rock-metal band who is looking for a group shot and one individual headshot per member x 3 for their CD cover.
1. What is the best way to formulate a non-offensive contract that will help me to copyright my photos? Should I try a local lawyer (I have limited funds) ... any suggestions on who/how much they cost? Should I try legal zoom? Should the band get huge... are there loyalties commonplace?
2. What is a respectable commission to ask for two hours of work including the above? I do not want to seem desperate/cheap nor ridiculously expensive?
3. I have LR4/PSE ... what is the best way to share my prints with the band? JPEG on a CD?
Please let me know ... I love photography but am a little nervous about the business side .... any help would be warmly welcomed!
