Vital Signs: What Goes into Your Legal Kit - PPA Today

Vital Signs: What Goes into Your Legal Kit

|

Dear PPA Member,

Legal, schmegal. Who needs the extra hassle of paperwork and signatures? You have clients and you know that they're going to pay you, right? They said they'd pay you, right? They told you the date and where you're supposed to be, right?

Wrong.

Contracts and releases and agreements exist for many reasons, but the main reason you need to have them in your business is to protect...you. I don't think you'd buy or sell a house without having something legally in writing. Buying a house is an investment. Buying your services as a professional photographer is an investment, too, so treat it as such!

This week's Vital Signs will show you what should be in your legal kit. You may not use everything in your kit, but it's worth putting one together...just in case. After all, they said they'd pay you, right?

Cheers!
Christel Aprigliano
Director of Member Value & Experience
