    Hi,

    In your case, I believe you are charging for the usage of your photos? So it will actually be a contract stating the charging model (royalty base or per use basis, etc). And the limitation and right of usage, purpose, etc. I would advise you to find a lawyer to do up the contract for you.

    Whether to find a lawyer depends on the commercial value of the contract. If its only worth a couple of hundred dollars or even a few thousand, I would say don't bother.

    As an aside, what you require is actually a license agreement, whereby you license use of the photographs to the other party.

    erm....actually...license agreement is a form of contract also.
    the reason i suggested for a lawyer is because they are the specialist in drafting such documents to ensure that you have everything you want covered.

    Just like wedding photos can be done by either professional photographer or just any relatives/friends holding a camera. but we all know that a professional photographer is more likely to capture the moments and feelings of the event. Like wise a contract/agreement can be draft up by anyone. But a lawyer is better in doing those type of things.

    Anyway, the choice of whether to spend the 'extra' money to engage professional help is all up to the TS. Just tot that since he ask, it must be quite an impt agreement.

    Yup a license agreement is a form of contract - I'm just trying to nail down the form of agreement, and it was in response to the TS's first post rather than to your post

    As for a lawyer, yup, its always better to have one. Just like in a photographer case - it all depends on the value involved and how much money the TS is wiling to spend.
