The following is a list of standard terms and conditions used by photographers, these are provided in the interests of both “the Client” defined as the couple named on the booking form and Anna Pumer Photography (Anna Downing) (“the Photographer”). Please ensure that you have read and understood these terms before placing your booking. The Client is deemed to have accepted the terms and conditions in full upon payment of the booking fee. It is agreed that the terms represent the total agreement made between the parties and cannot be varied in any way by the Client unless expressly agreed by the Photographer in writing.
PAYMENT 50% of the balance is required to book the shoot. The balance is due two weeks before the shoot. Payment may be made by bank transfer (details below), which should be made payable to Anna Pumer Photography. Dates are only reserved once the booking fee has been received in full. If the fee is not received, the Photographer reserves the right not to provide any services until payment is received or to treat the contract as cancelled. Prices are inclusive of VAT.
CANCELLATION BY THE CLIENT In the event of cancellation by the Client, the Client will receive a full refund of the monies paid if cancelled up until two weeks before the shoot date. If cancelled up to one week before, the client will receive a refund of 50% of monies paid. If cancelled within 7 days of the shoot date, the client will receive no refund. The purpose of this is to cover the loss of earnings caused by the cancellation.
CANCELLATION BY THE PHOTOGRAPHER In the unlikely event that the Photographer is forced to cancel this contract for reasons beyond control or if unforeseen circumstances prevent attendance (i.e. serious injury/illness or death), liability is limited to a full refund of monies paid to date. The Photographer will use reasonable endeavours to find a replacement photographer of a similar style. However, it may prove difficult or impossible to find an alternative skilled photographer at such short notice and/or at the same contract price. If another photographer is found, the refund of monies will no longer be applicable and the replacement photographer will receive the money. In this instance, The Client has the choice of whether to accept the replacement photographer or take the refund. In the unlikely event of a total photographic failure or cancellation of this contract by either party, whether caused by negligence or in any other circumstances, the liability of one party to the other shall be limited to the total value of the contract. Neither party shall be liable for indirect or consequential loss. Anna Downing and Anna Pumer Photography will never be liable for more than the total value of the contract.
COPYRIGHT The copyright in all photographs created by the Photographer shall remain the property of the Photographer in accordance with the Copyright, Designs & Patents Act 1988’. The Photographer reserves the right to use the images taken under this contract for advertising, editorial, display and competition purposes or for any other purpose thought proper by the Photographer without compensation or liability to the Client. The Client is forbidden to edit the photos – this includes adding filters, cropping or changing the colours in any way.
IMAGE FILES High-resolution image files are provided via online gallery to the Client for their personal use only and are supplied with the ‘right to print’. The Client is allowed to share online only if they credit the Photographer. No liability can be held for loss or damage to image files after safe delivery to the Client.
ARTISTIC LICENCE Where possible the Photographer will work with the Client to find the most suitable locations for both background, content and quality of lighting however it is agreed that the Photographer shall be granted full creative and artistic licence. The Photographer’s final judgement on photographic style, allocated time and the number of photographs taken shall be deemed correct.
RETOUCHING FEES The Photographer includes standard editing in the cost, such as making basic adjustments (ie lighting, contrast, colour correction) and adding a signature style. It does not include more involved Photoshopping, such as adding or removing anything from the image or doing extensive touch ups. These can be done for an extra retouching fee, to be decided depending on the extent of extra work involved. Under no circumstances will the Photographer edit using selective colour or add in anything that wasn’t present, or change the way people look (apart from removing unexpected spots), and the Client is not permitted to edit the photos in any way. If the Client would like any colour photos in black and white or black and white photos in colour, or any cropping done, there may be a small editing charge for this depending on how many images are involved.
REQUESTED PHOTOGRAPHS The Photographer will use reasonable endeavours to honour requests for specific photographs subject to the weather conditions, time permitting, the availability and willingness of subjects. However, the Photographer cannot guarantee any specific picture nor incorporate any specific background, location or arrangement.
IMAGES The Photographer will endeavour to deliver the images (around 40 images per hour of coverage) to the Client between 4-6 weeks after the shoot, but this may be slightly longer in the high season (April-September). They will be delivered via downloadable online gallery.
ALBUMS If the Client has purchased an album, the Client has 1 year from the date of the shoot to choose the photos to be included and approve the final design, or there may be additional costs in line with inflation.
