Accceptance of a photo shoot is acceptance of these terms and conditions:
I grant to the Photographer, Courtney King, the right to take photographs of myself, my children and my property as deemed fit by the Photographer. I authorise the Photographer to copyright, use and publish the same in print and/or electronically. I agree that the Photographer may use such photographs for any lawful purpose; including for example such purposes as publicity, illustration, advertising, competitions and web content unless otherwise noted.
DEPOSIT & PAYMENT
The Photographer will reserve the time and date agreed upon by both parties. Prices are non-negotiable. Payment can be made via cash or bank transfer.
DELIVERY OF IMAGES
Images will be delivered within 4 weeks of session date unless otherwise communicated and agreed. I always try to do them within 2 weeks but sometimes it takes me a little longer. Prints can take up to 3 months to be delivered depending on the quantity and sizes.
No refunds will be given for dissatisfaction with your images. There are no refunds or exchanges on any digital products.
COPYRIGHT & REPRODUCTION
The Photographer shall own the copyright in all images created and shall have the exclusive right to make reproductions for, including but not limited to, marketing materials, portfolio use, competitions, sample products, editorial submissions and use, or for display within or on the Photographer’s website, Facebook or social media channels. It is understood that any duplication or alteration of original images is strictly prohibited without the written permission of the Photographer. The Photographer will not release the RAW unedited images unless agree prior to the session.
The Client shall only use the images, including digital files, in accordance with the permissions within this agreement. The Client’s images are for personal use only and shall not be submitted to contests, reproduced for commercial use or authorise any reproductions by parties other than the Photographer.
The Client may share Facebook albums and gallery links through use of “share” functions on social media sites or by using direct links provided by the Photographer. Any images shared from the shoot must clearly credit the photographer. Word of mouth referrals are so powerful for my business. I love if you credit me by a comment or a tag when sharing your images.
WEATHER & ILLNESS
In the event of bad weather conditions or illness the Photographer and Client will discuss and agree how best to proceed and if necessary reschedule the date. I’m always happy to reschedule if it’s not how you envisioned your session.
If client requests to reschedule, or cancel, please give the Photographer 8 days notice (I am always happy to reschedule for sicknesses)
LIMITATION OF LIABILITY
The Photographer’s entire liability to the Client, above named models, or other companions for claim, loss, or injury arising from the Photographer’s performance or negligence is limited to a refund to the Client in the amount paid for services. If the Photographer is unable to perform this agreement due to illness, emergency, fire, casualty, strike, act of God or causes beyond the control of the Photographer, the Photographer and Client shall make every attempt to reschedule the session. If a reschedule is unable to be agreed upon there will be no further liability. Further, if the Photographer is unable to deliver photographic materials due to technological malfunctions, including but not limited to camera and processing, or otherwise lost or damaged without fault of the Photographer, liability shall be limited. The Photographer reserves the right to cancel this contract for any reason.
DELIVERY OF FILES, BACK UP & STORAGE
Your images will be delivered in an online personalised gallery. Through this gallery you can download high resolution and low resolution images to easily share with family and friends. The Client is responsible for downloading all the images from the gallery and keeping the images locally on their own back up system within 30 days of the gallery delivery. You will also be able to use a “favourite” tool to select your images for printing. It is the Client’s responsibility to keep copies of any digital files in more than one location, and frequently back the images up on another format such as a hard drive. After the images have been delivered to the Client, the Photographer assumes no responsibility for maintaining said images or keeping backup copies.
Images are edited at the Photographer’s discretion, and delivered prints may not include all images shot. The Photographer reserves the creative right to edit and release only those deemed creditable as professional in quality and within the Photographer’s artistic standards. It is prohibited for the Client or any other parties to make further creative edits to the photographs once the images have been delivered.
Gift vouchers are valid for 12 months. After this time gift vouchers will not be available for use. If you are unable to schedule your photoshoot within the valid time, please contact the Photographer. Vouchers cannot be redeemed for cash.
