Okay, so a "Work Made for Hire" agreement that isn't actually one because it does not fall into the “Work Made for Hire” category, is called a "contract" between the two parties... in the USA.

I am not commenting on whether or not your proposed definition would be a better one. I am just pointing out that your proposal is not consistent with the definition of the term in US Copyright law.

You said: ".. it is not a "Work Made for Hire," even if there was a "Work Made for Hire" agreement." - so I asked you "what do 'you guys' call it?" then -  to which you replied "it would be called the "contract" between the two parties."

Which is what I thought a 'Work Made for Hire' agreement was too - but anyway, now I'm trying to figure out what my "proposed definition" was, because all I originally said was:

Rather than say "is why they hired you to take the photos in the first place", I would say this is why they (asked you and agreed beforehand to) paid you for the Rights to use your images after you created them.
