Terms & Conditions
Family, Engagement & Couple session


Booking

To secure your session fill out the booking form and place your payment. A non-refundable deposit of £50 is required. Final payment is due 7 days before the session date. No digital photos, printed photographs, albums, USB memory stick or other products will be delivered until all payments due have been paid in full.


Photographer cancellation and limitation of liability

If the photographer has to cancel the session due to reasons beyond their control (e.g. death, injury, sickness, force majeure), or in the unlikely event of a total photographic or transport failure, including equipment malfunction or any loss or damage beyond the photographer’s control, the liability of the photographer shall be limited to a full refund of all monies paid, including the session deposit.

Digital images are backed up to a range of separate storage media to guard against digital loss and reserve equipment is on hand during the shoot in case of breakage or equipment failure. However, there exists the unlikely possibility that images may be lost, stolen, damaged or destroyed for reasons beyond the photographer’s control. The photographer will not be liable for indirect or consequential loss and the client agrees that the photographer is not responsible for any damages, emotional or otherwise.

The photographer has full Public Liability and Professional Indemnity Insurance.


Cancellation by client

The client may cancel this booking at any time by giving written notice (via email) to the photographer but in doing so shall invariably forfeit the deposit.


Weather

In the instance of the photographer cancelling the session due to bad weather, your session will be rearranged at no extra cost.


Model Release

The client grants the photographer the irrevocable and unrestricted right to use and publish photographs of the clients and/or any other photographic subjects in the shoot for the photographer’s personal promotion, including websites, business cards, portfolios, literature, exhibitions, competitions and advertising. However, the photographer is always willing to respect an individual’s privacy rights and will happily discontinue public use of a specific image when requested in writing. No commercial use will be made of the images except with the written permission of the client.


Creative Licence

The Photographer shall be granted artistic licence in relation to the poses photographed, the locations used and final edit of all photos. The Photographer will make their best effort to honour requested photographs but does not undertake any guarantee for any specific picture nor incorporate any specific background, location or group arrangement.


Images

Images will be delivered via personal online gallery. The client will receive a private download pin which must be used to download the photos.

Image files must not be copied, taken via screenshot or altered or sold in any way whatsoever.


Storage

The photographer will keep copies of the images for no more than six months after the date of the shoot; therefore it is imperative that clients make their own back up arrangements to safeguard the long-term security of the files.


Copyright

Copyright in all photographs (and associated materials) is retained by the photographer at all times. All images, copies of images or printed documentation relating to such images are protected by the Copyright and Design Act 1988. It is contrary to the Act to copy (or allow to be copied) an image or document created as part of this contract without the permission of the photographer in writing. Digital files remain the property of the photographer, and any images may be used for the photographer’s personal promotion, including websites, business cards, portfolios, editorial, literature, exhibitions, competitions and advertising. Please state on this booking form if you do not want any of your images to be used for these purposes. No commercial use is made of images except with the written permission of the client.


Retouching

Retouching, further edits and digital manipulation is available to the Client as an optional extra.


Digital. print and product orders

Any additional digital images, prints or other products ordered are to be purchased through the online store and do not come in conjunction with this contract. The Photographer cannot accept any responsibility or liability for colour balance or quality of any prints reproduced by the Client that we may supply by third party printers such as online or high street photo processing shops.
