That’s a poorly worded contract.  I’m unsure who the “my” refers to.  But it sounds like they aren’t responsible if YOU are injured while they are taking your pictures. As a vendor, I would imagine that she would have some sort of liability insurance in case she injures herself on the job.

I would ask for clarification via e-mail so you have a paper trail.

I think it’s saying they are not liable for any injuries YOU or someone else they photograph might sustain. Like…if you climbed a tree because you thought it would make for a great photo and then fall out of it and broke your arm…not their fault.

The “my” is refering to the person who is signing the contract. So in this case “my participation” means YOUR participation.

@Krises:  I agree with your reading of it. It is poorly worded, but it sounds that “I understand” and “my participation” mean you as the other party, not her. I’d definitely clarify, though, just to be sure.

This strikes me as a little strange. It’s why we have liability insurance.

If it helps we had a similar situation with our DJ contract. Luckily my dad (who’s a lawyer) wouldn’t let us sign anything without him reading it over for us. He saw the wording and didn’t like it so we talked to the DJ about it. They ended up taking out that sentence completely from our contract because they said they have their own insurance through their company.
