When you start creating a more successful and thriving business you might find yourself having more tasks to do. This is when you must begin delegating and prioritizing your time to focus on the parts of your business where you are truly indispensable. As you start booking the jobs of your dreams, many of these might be larger and lengthier events. Having a second shooter can help you deliver a better assortment of photographs to your clients given the distinct angles and perspectives you will be able to reach. It is important that when you hire a second shooter you think of the similarities you share to create work that is true to your own voice and style. At the end of the day this is what your client hired you for.
After you find the perfect photographer to add to your team it is important to communicate what you expect from them. You should always outline their duties and responsibilities in the most clear and transparent way possible. The best way to do this is signing a contract together. Having a contract in place will prevent you from having problems that you had never even thought of. Being straight about where you stand and understanding where your second shooter stands will always facilitate the process and will result in better work. Through this template, a second shooter contract, we provide the points you must touch on to keep things in check with the person you hire. This contract is the same used by Camila Urrea herself.

A personal message from Camila Urrea herself:
If you know me, making sure everything is clear and transparent with the people I work with is the core part of my business. This goes on with the people I hire to be part of my team. I had to learn to trust and be confident about other people when I began the process of expanding my team. A contract definitely helped me do this. From laying down salaries, to keeping a privacy and non-disclosure agreement, to insuring myself if photographs get lost or damaged, was all very important to me.
What happens if your second shooter cancels at the last minute? What happens if your second shooter’s photographs get lost or damaged? Can your second shooter contact your clients directly? What should your second shooter wear to a wedding to look professional? These are all things you should think about. Having a contract signed when doing business will prevent you from having problems and will also improve the experience you give to your clients. I truly trust that having this contract as part of your business will significantly improve the relationships you hold with your teammates and the work that you create with them.
Being clear about what you expect from the people you work with means doing more for you. I’m confident about this!
