Commercial Photography while employee
Jul 25, 2012

So I usually shoot weddings, but do a bit of commercial work here and there. I however am a full time employee as a designer for a web company here in Buffalo. They want to start pushing my photography to clients in need of commercial photography. Mostly head shots/portraits, but probably a bit of architectural and product stuff too(which is not my forte, but I feel comfortable taking it on). My question I guess, is has anyone found themselves in this kind of situation and what sort of agreement they came to on copyright and compensation. I'd prefer to do the photography on the side as an IC, and just throw referral fees to them, but it seems like they're leaning a bit more towards me shooting during business hours and negotiating some sort of additional rate on top of my salary. Any feedback or opinion is cool. Just looking to start some good dialogue on the topic. Thanks in advance.
