Sample Agreements in Real Estate Photography Contracts

There are certain agreements you should keep in mind while dealing with a real estate photographer. These agreements should be properly utilized and also modified per your firm’s and client’s needs.

  • Work-for-Hire Agreement : A work-for-hire agreement is necessary. This is because it outlines the guidelines needed by a collaborator to follow. Also, it works out the work process and the level of deliverability.
  • Assignment Agreement : This agreement is important. This is because, in this contract, the photographer assigns the interest of the photographs to the broker. Therefore, it leads to no copyright issues.
  • Exclusive License Agreement : This agreement comes into place when a photographer wants to retain ownership of the photos. Thus, the photographer grants the broker this license to display pieces in the real estate firm.

  • Back Button Focus: A camera technique where the autofocus function is moved from the shutter button to the back of the camera’s button.

  • Backlight: The primary light source, whether natural or artificial, is located behind the subject or in the background of a scene.
