Strangely, in the USA...

Unless the photographer was an employee, or the work fell into one of the nine enumerated categories, it is not a "Work Made for Hire," even if there was a "Work Made for Hire" agreement.

So what do 'you guys' call it, if someone agrees to pay you for your time & expenses to do the work, instead of or in exchange for the the Rights to use your images afterwards?

In the context of US Copyright Law, “Work Made for Hire” has a specific meaning...

I know all of that - the question was: what do 'you guys' call it, i.e. the "Work Made for Hire" agreement that you mentioned, that isn't actually one because it does not fall into the “Work Made for Hire” category?

I would also love to see what you would ask a client to pay you for in both cases, i.e. I would love to see the two Quotes or the two Agreements that you would ask a client to sign beforehand - so I can actually see how different they both would look.
