You may have a tax reporting requirement, but not a tax liability. If the web designer and photographer are independent contractors, and you pay them $600 or more, you will need to issue them a 1099-Misc. They will be responsible for any tax due on the money that you paid them. A copy of the 1099-Misc must be submitted to the IRS as well. As independent contractors, you have no tax liability.
