License, Coverage and Reproduction
The Photographer(s) shall be granted artistic license in relation to the poses photographed and the locations used. The photographer(s) judgment regarding the location, poses and number of photographs taken shall be deemed correct.
Photographs taken during the course of the event will be at the discretion of the photographer(s) although every effort will be made to comply with The Client(s) requirements.
The photographer(s) shall endeavour to photograph all individuals as requested by the client(s) at some point, but no responsibility will be taken by the photographer(s) on the occasion of leaving somebody out.
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(s) is able to cover the ceremony may not be the photographer(s) choice and the photographer(s) cannot accept responsibility for any obstructed view should this be the case. The use of artificial lighting may be restricted or prohibited. The photographing of parts or even all of the ceremony may be restricted or prohibited. Client(s) are strongly advised to check with the appropriate official.
For a wedding or other event booking the photographer(s) shall endeavour to capture all the moments throughout the day as they occur. However, because of the fluid nature of the event, some moments might not be recorded, or not recorded for logistical reasons.
Please note that any alterations made to the booking by the client(s) once details have been confirmed may only be made at the discretion of the photographer(s) and in some circumstances (such as the change of ceremony date for a wedding) the photographer(s) may be unable to accommodate these alterations due to a conflict of commitments. Under these circumstances the photographer(s) are not liable to compensate the client(s) in any way whatsoever.
It is understood that all photographic printing is undertaken within the technical limitations of the process and that colour may not be identical over the whole range of colours within a subject. It is also understood that prints made at different times or in different sizes may be variable in colour balance.
Due to the limitations of computer monitors it is understood that (1) images appear differently according to the specification of each monitor (2) prints will not match images rendered on any particular computer monitor. The monitors used by the photographer (s) for final image editing are all colour profiled and checked weekly for accuracy of colour. Clients should be aware that certain lighting conditions and materials will cause colour to be recorded differently. Where possible we will attempt digital correction of this.
All print and presentation sizes quoted are approximate and subject to the discretion of the photographer(s).
Although all equipment is checked regularly and backup equipment is available, the photographer(s) will not be responsible for photographs that are not produced due to technical failure, either at the shooting or processing stage.
Where images are made available for use with a personal computer the default operating system shall be Windows. Products may not function on other or earlier operating systems.
