Photography Contracts Bundle

Many peer photographers asked me if I could provide them with some guidance on contracts every photographer needs at some point in time, especially when it comes to photograph people. I have found a Forms Bundle for Photographers that might just be what you were looking for.

Running a full-time photography business is tough. Being the creative head, photographer, editor, and marketer yourself, photography contracts & forms take a backseat. You definitely don’t have the time to create them yourself. And hiring a lawyer to do it for you is expensive.

Is it then wise to proceed without a contract? No way!

You are literally putting yourself out there without a security blanket. Everyone wants to work with good clients. It’s hard to imagine that sweet couple you photographed at their wedding taking advantage of you.

But the truth is that any client [even friends and family] will look out for their own interests!

From copyright disputes, payment issues, and unrealistic expectations, a lot can go wrong. Not to mention you also need to set your terms and conditions.

Result? misunderstandings, fights, delayed payments, and eventually loss of a client. Sounds incredibly ugly, doesn’t it? This is where photography contracts and forms come into play.

Contracts not only sustain your clients but also helps you gain new ones.

Domain name Ideas .ONE 💡

Besides the popular .com, .net, .org, there are a lot of additional TLD’s*. One of these is .ONE. Top Level Domain names are very useful to transform the entire domain name as a whole, without having an additional TLD. For example, Google is using goo.gl and LinkedIn is using Linked.in. We did some brainstorming and came up with a few domain names, mostly targeting the Italian market.

The issuer of this TLD has already reserved very popular domain names, such as panett.one, lim.one, mascarp.one to name a few. You are certainly familiar with the meaning of these words as shown below!

We have reserved some popular domain names that may be of interest to you.

  • Seduzi.one – Seduction – no further explanation needed
  • Abitazi.one – Abitazione – Means, dwelling, home – Maybe Habitat for Humanity rings a bell?
  • Affar.one – Affarone – Great deal in a sense, you made a great bargain with a purchase.
  • Edizi.one – Edizione: Edition. Great domain name for an online News blog or if you intend to write or sell 1st Edition products. The ‘One’ is figuratively also suggesting 1st Edition
  • Educazi.one – Education. Ideal domain name for online courses and educational books. Maybe rating website for Colleges and Universities?
  • Iniezi.one – Injection – A domain name for the medical field or blogging about … you know what I mean.
  • lozi.one – Lotion – for beauty or personal care related websites…
  • Ragi.one – Reason – inspired by an Italian News agency La Ragione
  • Selezi.one – Selection – inspired by the ‘Reader’s Digest’ publication. The Italian version (if still exists) is called ‘Selezione’.
  • Liquidazi.one – Liquidation. For auction houses and liquidation services. Popular these days as companies can sell their overstock online with this eye catching domain name

We are negotiating with domain name owners for similar high value domain names.

Another use for the .One TLD is for companies who market themselves as No. 1 in the business or have the word or number One in their registered name. Below a few ideas:

Liquidation.one This would be a easy to remember and compelling domain name for a liquidation project or company name.

Monochrome.one A great domain name for photo labs and/or photographers (product, landscape, real estate photography)

* A TLD (top-level domain) is the most generic domain in the Internet’s hierarchical DNS (domain name system). A TLD is the final component of a domain name, for example, “org” in developer.mozilla.org.

Domain Name: Apertureshots.com

Apertureshots.com was used by a photo studio in the past. Great name and easy to remember.  No matter if you are a professional or photographer or just have the passion to take photos, this domain name may be for you.

Showcase your photos, offer your photography services such as Real Estate, Product, Wedding or Wildlife photography. Now, why would you want to have your own website?

  • Showcase your photos the way you want it. You can design your website with solutions, like WordPress which offers a lot of plugins and templates
  • Telling your story can be a great reason why to have your own website. You can present it the way you want without restrictions other sites, like FB and other Big Tech companies put on you. You can present your photos as you wish with all the descriptions as long as you want.
  • Offer products and your photos as prints or as downloads. If you sell your photos with Adobe Stock, you get pennies for the dollar. You can also make extra money with affiliate marketing if you don’t have your products to sell.
  • Use your website and personalized domain name like a business card. Some websites offer sub-domains, like yourname.theirwebsite.com or theirwebsite.com/users/photography/yourname
  • Use a name that is easy to remember and likeable, like apertureshots.com

We hope this post will help you to take the next step by registering a great domain name and get your ideas online.
