Hi, I'm Rob Finkelstein!


If you have, or are looking to start, a food photography business, you should have a full understanding of contracts, how they work, and how to negotiate them.

I am a lawyer, pastry chef, food photographer and blogger. I have been practicing law for more than 20 years and have my own law firm in New York City. In 2017, while running my law firm, I attended culinary school for pastry arts. I then started my blog, Cinnamon Shtick, where I share recipes for desserts, pastries and breads.

Since starting my blog, I have negotiated and drafted many contracts for recipe development, photographs and video, both for my own brand and for other food photographers.

Rob was extremely helpful when I needed legal advice and a contract. He was always easy to communicate with and did a great job of explaining the various terms and aspects of the contract. Not only was the contract that he created specific to my needs as a photographer and small business owner, but he also set it up so that I was able to tweak and customize the agreement for different clients and projects.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q: Will the contract form provided work where I live?

A: The contract template is designed to work globally based on common law contract principles. There are a couple of instances where there may be differences in the law depending on your jurisdiction. We identify those instances and tell you how to look them up. That said, you should always have a local lawyer review your contract to ensure that it is compliant with local law.
