      1. I do have a contract, but i have a lot more on mine than yours.

      2 attached

      3. I am thinking maybe I have to much? Maybe I can simplify it more?

      2.I currently do not do phone calls, but I have all my information in 17Hats.  So if I correspond with them I make notes in the contact under their project.  I also have a questionnaire that I have to fill out with the important information like birthdates, family members, etc.


      again….i cannot attach.

        Wow yes it is a lot – I would also have the shoot date – clients name – ie session details on it.

      1. Contract Forms – I do have a Photography Contract I use for all my sessions and a Model Release I use for Model Calls and complimentary sessions.

      2. I tried attaching but I couldn’t!. =(


      3. Last summer I had a lawyer draft my contract so I’m happy where it is now. Maybe I can tweak some info here and there but overall it has been working really well for me. I liked the referral part you put on yours at the bottom, might add that.

      4. I do not have a call log! And I think this is a brilliant idea! I always start filling a new contract over the phone, but I like the idea of having a different form where I can take notes more informally before filling their contract. Will work on it today! =)

      Thank you!

      Honestly…. I started using contract and model release forms but due to my fathers health the last few years then his passing I was missing some deadlines so for newborn shoots/ portraits I just used the t’s & c’s On my website….. apparently contracts are not worth the paper they are written on in Scotland/ UK??….

      however, in saying that I will be setting everything up differently this year and model release forms are back in! I do referrals after training with you before Ana and initially it worked really well but to be honest my head became so busy with my dad that I started getting complacent with mentioning it and leaflets lying around don’t jump into peoples pockets lol…. so again this is my 2018 plan!

      love the call log and I wish the clients would call me….. drives me nuts with FB messages or now Instagram messages on top of emails etc…. I would love to encourage people to pick up the phone again…. any ideas here are very welcome xx

      Hi Ana,

      I currently do not have a contract and model release forms but I will work on adding these forms to my business this year.  However, I am in Canada and we have a copyright law that was implemented in 2012 that allows photographers the rights of all photos they take and they now do not need a signed model release.  So, I am not sure if I should still add this to my contact.

      I also do not have a call log form.  I think it is a great idea and it will be useful in my business as well.

      Thank you,

        Interesting – I still think you should have some sort of contract – what about reshoots? Or other issues that may come up?

      Hello Ana, I do not have a contract but I’ve been looking into one and when I can across this one I downloaded them but it will not let me change some things on there I got drop box so how do I change a few things on here ?
