Portrait Photography Contract, Terms and Conditions.
It is mutually agreed that the following terms of agreement, form an integral part of this contract and that no variation or modification of this contract shall be effective unless accepted by both the Photographer and the Client, in writing.
Booking and Payment
Upon booking, the Photographer will reserve the time and date agreed upon, and will not make other reservations for that time and date. The full amount of £50 is to be paid at the time of booking to secure your Portrait Photography Session. Client agrees if the balance is not paid at the time of booking, the Photographer cannot guarantee to attend your Portrait Session.
If the Client cancels the Portrait Photography Session, an unconditional refund policy exists up until five (5) days prior to the reserved date, at which point the Photographer shall retain the full payment. Should the cancelled appointment turn out to be a postponement, then, subject to the Photographers availability, all monies paid may be applied to the new appointment. If the appointment has to be cancelled by the Photographer due to adverse weather conditions a new, mutually agreed appointment will be made.
Limit of Liability
In the unlikely event that the Photographer is injured, becomes too ill, or has an emergency that prevents them from attending the Portrait Session, the Photographer will make arrangements to re-schedule the portrait session. If a suitable day for reschedule is not agreed upon, the Client agrees that responsibility and liability of the Photographer to the Client is limited to the return of all payments received for the Portrait Package. In the unlikely event that digital files have been lost, stolen, or destroyed for reasons beyond the Photographer’s control, including but not limited to camera, hard drive, or equipment malfunction, the Photographer’s liability is limited to the return of all payments received for the Portrait Package.
The Client agrees that no photographs, digital or prints, will be delivered until full payment is received. Digital processing takes approximately one (1) week. Photographs will be provided to the Client on a CD/DVD no more than fourteen (14) days after the Portrait Session.
Digital Negatives, Prints and Copyright
The photographs, digital negatives or prints produced by the Photographer, are protected by International Copyright Law (all rights reserved) and the Photographer retains the copyright to all photos and images produced. The Client will receive a copy of the digital photographs on a disc, as part of the Portrait Package. The Client may reproduce any images in any manner they like for sharing and enjoyment of friends and relatives. However, the Client must not reproduce any images for publishing or selling for profit.
All travel expenses are based on the distance between the Portrait Session location(s) and the business address (Scholes, Leeds). For all Portrait Sessions, the first 40 miles roundtrip of travel is included. All miles in excess of 40 miles roundtrip are charged at 50p per mile.
