necessary to confirm the stated  services from the Photographers.

 

COOPERATION: The above mentioned party and the Photographers consent to happily cooperate and communicate with each other to achieve the best possible result within the understanding of this contract.

 

THE SCHEDULE: Our shooting schedule, style of working and experience are designed to achieve a great set of photos for the above mentioned party, accomplished with good humour and enjoyed by all concerned. Both the above mentioned party and the Photographers therefore agree that punctuality and cheerful cooperation are essential to producing outstanding photographic results. In cases where the event does not run on time we cannot guarantee to take our normal set of photos although in such circumstances we will do our absolute best to compensate.

 

HOUSE RULES: Note the Photographers are sometimes limited by rules imposed by registrars, ministers and venue management as to what can and cannot be done. For example some venues insist that no flash photography is allowed, and others will insist that the Photographers shoot from a specific location. In such circumstances the above mentioned party agree to accept the technical limitations that may be imposed on the equipment used. We advise the above mentioned party to make themselves aware of the rules of the venue concerned and if necessary negotiate with the personnel concerned.

 

COPYRIGHT LAW: English Copyright Law states that the copyright of photographs remains with the photographer.

The Photographers grant the above mentioned party permission to make copies of the images under the following conditions.

The images taken by the Photographers are for personal use by the above mentioned party and their friends and relatives.

Selling, Publication or any Commercial use of the photographs is not allowed without prior written permission from the

LIMIT OF LIABILITY: If a photographer is too ill or becomes injured and cannot supply the services specified above the Photographers try to book a replacement photographer. Under normal circumstances a second photographer from the Photographers is there for the day anyway and this photographer will then shoot the day on his/her own. If both photographers are unavailable and a replacement photographer cannot be found then liability is limited to a refund of any payments received. The Photographers have working methods in place to prevent the loss or damage to your images. However, there is the unlikely possibility that images may be lost, stolen or destroyed for reasons in or beyond our control. In these circumstances liability is limited to the return of fees paid for the service or part thereof according to the percentage of images supplied.

 

BOOKING FEE/DEPOSIT: In the event of the above mentioned party cancelling the event for whatever reason the booking fee is non refundable. It will be considered as liquidated damages to the Photographers.
