Thanks for all the replies, I've been shooting for $30/gig but they forgot to ask me to sign a contract, so I guess that means I retain my rights to the images if anyone gets famous, etc.

I haven't seen the contract, but they said they want all the rights to selling the images - I can use them, but only for self promotion like in my portfolio.


Do NOT take it. Work For Hire is bad for you, bad for business, bad for the industry. At $5k per shoot WFH is bad for business. I actually left my job as a magazine director of photography, overseeing multiple international business magazines, in part because of the extreme pressure to implement a WFH contract. I'd be paying $750+ for the shoots, and as the person in charge I fought it and refused to issue it to my photogs.

I promise you....at $30/gig you are eventually going to realize it is not worth your time. Let us know when that happens.
