Terms & Conditions....

Believe me this isn't a favourite page of mine but it's placed here so we can understand each other just a little better...

The following terms and conditions apply to photography taken by myself Richard Books Photography.

Only those images that pass editing and are deemed by the photographer to have reached a high and professional standard will be shown and made available.  Retouching, digital manipulation and artist finishing will be employed to give the best results possible.

The Photographer shall be granted artistic licence in relation to the poses photographed.  The photographer’s judgement regarding the poses and number of images taken shall be deemed correct.  It will be a pleasure also for the client to suggest particular poses during the session and I will do my best to accommodate such requests. Due to the weather conditions and the willingness of subjects and costume changes…it may not be possible to capture all the images requested.

Full payment is required upon completion of the images and can be made in the form of cash, bank transfer or using Paypal only I am afraid! However once a booking has been confirmed by myself in writing (email), cancellation fees are applicable (*see cancellations) due to interfering with other possible bookings on this day or time.

I hope this can be resolved before hand but payment will be required before photographs or images will be handed to my clients. Payment will be accepted via cash, paypal or cheque (after the cheque has cleared) After attending the venue and completing the work to my highest and agreed standard. If payment has not been received after 60 days i will start proceedings and submit my claim via the small claims court plus interest.

The Client may cancel the contract at any time by giving written notice.  Should cancellation be received less than 1 week prior to the session, the client shall pay a cancellation fee equal to 50% of the contract value.  The sum shall be payable as compensation as an estimate of the loss suffered by the photographer.

Travel Costs
For portraits over 25 miles from Bexleyheath, Kent, the photographer reserves the right to charge for fuel costs. Depending on the time of day and best alternative travel will be used.

The Photographer will own the copyright on all images in all forms whether stored digitally or printed and remain the property of the photographer.  No copies of any kind (photographically/ electronically or by other means) may be made or be allowed to be made without the express written permission from myself the photographer. Reproducing of images without the photographers consent is noted by high street or online companies and will need my written acknowledgement and approval.

Use of Images
I will ask the client(s) permission if I can use images to advertise on my website or social media and also allow me to display any of the images included in this contract in the studio, portfolios, literature, wedding, display areas, exhibitions, publicity, marketing, advertising, competitions or slide shows.  No use of the images will be made by the Photographer for other commercial reason except with the written permission of the client.

I aim to please and supply you a more than satisfactory service. However if any complaints arise, I am not an alien but an approachable human being. The client should contact me within 28 days sharing their concerns so the matter can be dealt with and a solution found as quickly as possible!
