Business Help Needed!!

A former member
Post #: 12
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!
