All travel expenses within a 30-mile radius of my home in Portishead are included. Outside of this, there is a charge of 45p per mile for car travel. Alternatively, public transport fees are to be covered in full.
Session fee/deposit for events
If the client is booking a photoshoot, a non-refundable session fee of £100 is payable on booking to secure the date. Failure to pay the session fee nulls and voids the booking.
If the client is booking an event, a non-refundable deposit of £100 is payable on booking to secure the date. This deposit will be deducted from the total cost. Failure to pay the session fee nulls and voids the booking.
The client may cancel this booking at any time by informing the photographer but the deposit/session fee and any travel tickets already purchased are non-refundable.
In the event that government restrictions due to Covid prevent an event/photoshoot from taking place, the photographer and client will rearrange an alternative date together, or the client can choose to have the deposit/session fee of £100 refunded. If a family member is ill due to Covid and needs to self-isolate, an alternative date for the photoshoot will be arranged.
I will use my professional expertise, judgment, and artistic license in the choice of photographs taken. If the client has requests for specific photographs, the photographer will make every effort to accommodate these. The client understands and accepts that this may not always be possible.
The photographer will keep all information provided by the client confidential for the purposes of the photography.
Copyright 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.
Photographer cancellation + limitation of liability
If the photographer has to cancel the contract due to reasons beyond their control (e.g. death, injury, sickness, emergency, 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 the deposit paid. Digital images are backed up to guard against digital loss. 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.
