Deposit and Payment

The retainer must be paid in full at the time of booking. Retainer secures the time and services of the Photographer for the sitting and is non-refundable or transferable in the event of cancellation, it being the agreed loss suffered by the photographer due to cancellation. Sittings that are postponed to a later date will retain the fee as long as the photographer can re-schedule for the new date and time.

Following payment of the retainer, balance of any fees due is to be paid on, or before the date of the sitting. No photographs will be delivered until all payments due have been paid in full. Payment for additional images and albums is to be made when they are ordered

Without permission from the Photographer, the Client shall not download, copy, print, screen shot, use as a basis for derivative works, manipulate in any way, or otherwise use the Photographer’s images.

If Client is obtaining a print for reproduction or publication, Photographer authorizes Client to reproduce the print only as agreed upon by Client and Photographer.  In such event, Client shall request that a credit for the Photographer be placed adjacent to the photograph on publication, but shall have no liability if the publication refuses or omits to do so. 

Attendance

In the event of such substitution, Photographer warrants that the photographer taking the photographs shall be a competent professional. In a event the customer fails to meet at the agreed upon location the retainer will be non refundable and not transferable

This limitation on liability shall also apply in the event that photographic materials are damaged in processing, lost through camera or computer malfunction, lost in the mail, or otherwise lost or damaged without fault on the part of the Photographer.  In the event the Photographer fails to perform for any other reason, the Photographer shall not be liable for any amount in excess of the retail value of the Client’s order.
