Display

The client(s) hereby allow(s) the photographer to display any photograph covered by this contract and to generally promote the business in advertising, brochures, magazine articles, websites, social media, sample albums etc. providing that the images are used lawfully and without damage to the Client. Images placed in password protected galleries within the website are not available to the general public in the normal course of events. The photographer agrees not to resell any image to a third party other than with prior written consent.

 

Images

All image sizes are nominal. The Photographer/s will provide a pleasing colour balance but cannot guarantee exact colour matching owing to anomalous reflectance caused by a combination of certain dyes and materials especially man-made fibres. It is sometimes impossible to record on film or digitally the exact colour as seen by the human eye. For a booking involving a church ceremony or at certain venues, the photographer's movements are sometimes restricted by the official in charge. The area from which the photographer is able to cover the ceremony may not be the photographer's choice and the photographer cannot accept responsibility for any obstructed view should this be the case.

 

All print and presentation sizes quoted are approximate and subject to change at the discretion of the Photographer(s) and may be subject to slight variation.  Whilst every effort will be made, the Photographer(s) cannot guarantee exact colour matching and is not held responsible for any colour variations which may occur due to light and location variations.

Due to limitations of computer monitors and variations of computer operating systems, it is understood that images viewed via this method may appear differently according to the specification of each monitor/computer and that prints may not match images rendered on any particular computer monitor.

Where images are made available for use on a CD/DVD player by disc, reasonable steps are taken to ensure compatibility, but you acknowledge that discs may not play on all CD/DVD players including those within computers.

Only quality branded CD’s and DVD’s are used and each is checked prior to delivery.  However, it remains the responsibility of the Clients to check for in-transit damage. The Photographer(s) cannot be held responsible for damage to equipment resulting from defective media.

 

Image and Reproduction

Only quality branded CD’s and DVD’s are used. All orders are subject to quality control before you are contacted to collect or disks/ usb’s are sent out. The client must check over their order in studio on collection. By leaving with your items you are agreeing they are in satisfactory condition.

Any printing errors that somehow were not noticed must be brought to the photographers attention within 48hrs and returned to the studio for inspection. Other damage/loss at this point will not be seen as my responsibility.

It is the clients responsibility to back up the disk/ usb containing images from their session. The disk/ usb is not intended as permanent storage and this should be done as soon as it is collected/ received. you may make as many copies as you wish. any fault with the disk/ usb, should be reported to the photographer within 48 hours.

Although every  effort will be made to comply with the Clients’ requirements, the Photographers’ judgement regarding the location, poses and number of photographs taken and /or given to the customer shall be deemed correct and not subject to dispute.

 

For Events involving a church ceremony or at certain other venues, the Photographer(s) movements are sometimes restricted by the minister or official in charge: photographing of parts or even all of the ceremony or occasion may be restricted or prohibited, as may the use of artificial lighting. The Photographer(s) cannot accept responsibility for limited coverage in such circumstances.
