The last year has put us on high alert. Everything we do and feel is at an extreme level including client communications. Our emotions control situations especially when handling issues that are controversial or related to topics of sensitive nature. Fear is controlling. Allowing fear to control you within your business dealings can cause the absolute downfall of your entire photography business.
Today is the day we stop letting fear control our business decisions and client communication.
We worked together with some of the top photographers in the industry to come up with ten of the top client issues facing photographers. Then we created lawyer drafted responses that will help you set your boundaries and avoid client issues when facing these problems. You will never have to stress out for hours on end, posting in Facebook groups and hoping for a miracle answer to your client problems. We have the answer for you right here!
Reclaim your sanity and confidence while saving time with our ten question copy template for client issues. Then spend the time you save generating more clients and photographing stunning images.

As a team of lawyers and photographers, we know what it's like.
And we don't want fear of the unknown keeping you up at night.
That's why we offer affordable photographer contracts tailored to professionals just like you. Our team of lawyers and photographers at TheLawTog® develop, review, and approve every contract.
We think this is a pretty awesome combo—legal expertise and photographer know-how.
If you're afraid of client disputes and potential liability, you're not alone. Business conflict is time-consuming, expensive, and harmful. Which makes it essential to protect your work.
Protecting your business with clear and comprehensive contracts is non-negotiable. Whether you're starting out, shooting for free, or an experienced professional, legal protection is extremely important.
Every contract template we provide is easy to edit and should be tailored to reflect business policies and laws in your state.
While you can obtain a contract through a non-photographer lawyer, it may not be the best choice. Since our templates were created by—and for—photographers, they are typically more comprehensive. And cool news, they can save you money.
Lawyer-drafted. Photographer approved.
No recurring fees - just one time payment.
