1 Million Photographer Contracts

The amount of time you need to put together your photography contract depends on a number of factors.

If you’re looking for a quick and easy way to get your hands on a contract, here’s what you need:
1.

You’ll need a photographer contract.

The number of photos you’ll need is based on your camera and the number of people in your photography team.

A contract for 1,000 people is $1,000 per person per day.

For $500 per person, a contract for 5 people is a deal worth $5,000.

You’ll need an account on the photographer’s website.

You can get one from Hongkongs Photo Agency.


You’ll also need a photography license for the photos you shoot.

Licensing & certification

Photographers and photographers assistants have access to the same photography licenses as commercial photographers.

Professional photographers are required to have their own license.
If you’re thinking of hiring a photographer, you’ll also have to pay for a photo-processing contract that allows you to use your camera to create the photo.

Commercial photographers must get their own photography license. If you have a photographer’s license and your photography is licensed as commercial, you must have a photo processing contract to use the photos.

You also need to pay $300 per day per person for the photo processing, which will add up to $3,000 to your total cost.

Create a photography contract

If your contract is for 5 photographers, you will need to use 1,200 photos and a $5 million budget.


For $5M, a photo is worth $400 per photo
For more than $5m, a $15 million photography project is worth at least $1.5 million. The contract you’ll get will depend on the number and type of photographers and the length of the contract.

You may need to work with a specific photographer, for example, or with a company that owns the property, to keep things manageable.
