Terms & Conditions
It is agreed that the following terms set out the total agreement made between the parties and that no variation or modification of this contract shall be effective unless agreed by both parties in writing.
Booking Payment – Session
The Booking payment 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.
Payments of products
Payments to be made at the time of photo viewing. If a payment plan has been agreed by photographer and client, no photographs will be delivered until all payments due have been paid in full. Payment for additional images is to be made when they are ordered. No refunds are given.
The Photographer/s may display any photographs included in this contract in his/her studio, website, portfolio, literature, display areas, exhibitions, competitions, advertising or slide shows. If under certain circumstances, the client may wish to refuse their images being used this should be put in writing at the time of viewing. If the use of images was given consent and over time the client decides to refuse their images for the use, then this is down to the photographers discretion.
The Photographer/s will provide a pleasing colour balance but cannot guarantee exact colour matching due to different calibration of monitors.
All images will be adjusted for skin blemishes, exposure, brightness, contrast, sharpness, etc. The Photographer’s judgement regarding these corrections and the number of images put forward to the Client for preview shall be deemed correct. Retouching, digital manipulation and artist finishing is available to the client as an option at extra cost.
Any images or copies of images whether stored digitally or otherwise and any computer program including any source or object code, computer files 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 photographically/electronically or by any other means an image created as part of this contract without the permission of The Photographer/s in writing.
The Photographer/s shall be granted artistic licence in relation to the poses photographed and any locations used. The Photographers judgement regarding the locations/poses and number of images taken shall be deemed correct.
In the unlikely event of the assigned Photographer being unable to attend your sitting due to unforeseen circumstances, we reserve the right to appoint another photographer to attend your sitting on our behalf to undertake the photography to his/her best ability.
Clients (our paying customers) may cancel this contract up to 24 hours of the shoot. But in doing so shall forfeit any monies pre paid, unless an alternative date has been agreed at the time of cancelation. No refunds are given in any circumstance.
All digital files remain the property of Life Is Beautiful Photography.
Supplementary additional photography by a third party is not allowed during a Life Is Beautiful Photography session, unless previously agreed. We reserve the right to stop the session and charge for our full time should unauthorised supplementary photography take place. We have strong professional ethic in our work and we hope you agree that this clause is for your protection as well as to preserve our professional work ethics. Clearly in certain circumstances this maybe difficult to control, especially when large crowds of people are concerned. However, professional poses are still the protected domain of Life Is Beautiful Photography.
Protection of photographic images
In todays world we must insist for your protection (our customers) and ours, that no post publication of any life is beautiful photographic image can be tampered with, that includes company logos and trademark registrations. Further more unauthorised internet publication, if trademarks, logos/watermarks are removed is an offence.
Polite notice to Friends & Family
