Terms and Conditions
Please note by paying the initial session fee you are agreeing to the terms and conditions outlined below:
Session fee: A session fee is required to make a booking; this secures the time & date. Session fees are non-refundable. Session fee prices can be found on my price list. By paying the session fee you are agreeing to the terms & conditions outlined in this document.
Payment: Payment of all packages and products must be paid in full before the final products are received by the client.
Image Files: All photographic image files remain the property of Rachel Humphrey Photography at all times. All original digital files presented to the client are retained by Rachel Humphrey Photography for a minimum of 6 months.
Copyright: English copyright law states that the copyright of photographs remains with the photographer.
No Commercial On-Sale: Rachel Humphrey Photography shall not make any commercial sale of the images without the written permission of the Client.
Client’s Usage and Reproduction: All prints and image files provided to the Client by Rachel Humphrey Photography are licensed for personal use only, and cannot be used for profit or advertising without written consent. Any posting of images on the internet must be acknowledged as images taken by the Photographer.
Image altering: To preserve the integrity of my work the client agrees not to alter any original images provided by Rachel Humphrey Photography. If the client requires any further cropping, altering, black and white adjustments or Photoshop they will need to contact Rachel Humphrey Photography for permission or a quote for it to be done professionally. Screen shots are strictly prohibited and must not be displayed on social media unless it is the original copy of the image untouched or cropped.
Creative License: Images are edited at the Photographer’s discretion, and delivered digitals may not include all images shot. Rachel Humphrey Photography reserves the creative rights to edit and release only those images deemed creditable as professional in quality and within the photographer’s artistic standards. Once the images are released to the client, there shall be no refunds made at all.
Travel: Photo sessions are to take place within a 15-mile radius of MK43 8AT. Further locations can be accommodated for a travel fee, please contact me in this instance.
Attendance: In the unlikely event that Rachel Humphrey Photography is unable to attend your photo session due to unforeseen circumstances, Rachel Humphrey Photography reserves the right to reschedule the photo session to another agreed date.
Cancellation & Postponement: Once the Client has made a booking for a specific time and date, Rachel Humphrey Photography will not accept any other work from other clients for those times and dates. As a result, once a booking is made for a family session, occasion or event, if it is subsequently cancelled, the full session fee will still be charged to the client according to the following schedule. Rachel Humphrey Photography will, at their discretion, allow postponements due to inclement weather and family emergencies as long as the session is re-booked within a 30 day period.
Photography of minors: For subjects under the age of 18 at least one Parent or Guardian must be present at all times, and the Parent or Guardian must maintain a visual contact with the minor/s.
Use of own cameras: Please refrain from using your own cameras / video cameras / iPhones etc. during the photo session. Having more than one lens to look at is confusing and will detract from the quality of your images.
Physical activity: Photo sessions involve physical activity. This is undertaken at the client’s own risk.
Failure to cooperate: The Photographer is not responsible for lack of or no image captures if key individuals fail to appear or cooperate during photography sessions or for missed images due to details not revealed to the Photographer. Clients are responsible for taking care of children and making sure they cooperate while the portrait session is ongoing to ensure, everything happens in the provided time slot.
Gift Certificates: Gift certificates are non-refundable, can only be used once and cannot be exchanged for cash. Gift certificates are valid for one year from date of purchase. Certificates cannot be used in conjunction with any other vouchers or offers. The recipient must agree to the terms and conditions stated in this document and complete a booking form prior to the photo session.
