Leon Britton Photography will be in contact with you approximately [2-3] weeks prior to your Event to arrange a pre-event appointment if this is deemed necessary. Any remaining balance is to be paid by that meeting date.
All payments must be received in cleared funds prior to the Event.
Following payment of the Booking Fee, the balance of fees due is to be paid as follows:
• The same amount as the booking fee is due 12 months prior to the event date;
• the remaining balance is due by the pre-event meeting or 14 days prior to the event if a pre-event meeting is not held.
• Payment for any additional images or products must be made at the time of order.
Failure to make payment by the dates stipulated may result in cancellation.
All cheques should be made payable to Leon Britton. Bank Transfer (BACS) payments are acceptable too.
Late payments or returned cheques will attract an administration charge of £25
No photographs or albums will be delivered until all payments have been received in full in cleared funds.
Where payment is to be made by a third party, the Parties acknowledge that they shall remain responsible for any balance outstanding in respect of the Contract.
IMAGE AND REPRODUCTION
All print and presentation sizes quoted are approximate and subject to change at the discretion of the Photographer(s) and may be subject to slight variation. Whilst every effort will be made, the Photographer(s) cannot guarantee exact colour matching and is not held responsible for any colour variations which may occur due to light and location variations.
Due to limitations of computer monitors and variations of computer operating systems, it is understood that images viewed via this method may appear differently according to the specification of each monitor/computer and that prints may not match images rendered on any particular computer monitor.
Where images are made available for use on a USB device, reasonable steps are taken to ensure compatibility, but you acknowledge that USBs may not play on all devices including and not exclusive to computers.
Only quality branded USB’s are used and each is checked prior to delivery. However, it remains the responsibility of the Clients to check for in-transit damage. The Photographer(s) cannot be held responsible for damage to equipment resulting from defective media.
Retouching, digital manipulation and artist finishing is available to the Client as an optional extra.
All reorders shall be treated as an extension of the Contract and no responsibility for any error will be accepted unless orders are provided in writing.
In the event a product (such as an album) is no longer available a suitable alternative of similar quality will be offered. The photographers’ choice of an alternative will be deemed as correct and acceptable to the Client(s). Any surcharge resulting from the order of a new product following rejection of a replacement will be the responsibility of the Client(s).
All images shall remain the sole property of the Photographer(s) at all times.
All completed albums and products shall remain the property of the Photographer(s) until full payment is received.
Any images or copies of images whether stored digitally or otherwise and any computer program including any source or object code, computer files or printed documentation relating to such images are protected by the Copyright and Design Act 1988 and remain the copyright of The Photographer(s) at all times unless there is express written agreement to the contrary. It is contrary to the Act to copy or allow to be copied photographically, electronically or by any other means an image created as part of this contract without the written permission of the Photographer(s).
In the unlikely event that the assigned Photographer is unable to attend your Event due to unforeseen circumstances, Leon Britton Photography reserves the right to appoint another suitable Photographer(s) to attend the Event on our behalf to undertake the photography to his/her best ability.
The Photographer(s) will maintain Public Liability and Professional Indemnity insurance at all times. However, in the unlikely event of a total photographic failure or cancellation of this Contract by either party or in any other circumstance, the liability of one party to the other shall be limited to the total value of the Contract. Neither party shall be liable for any indirect or consequential loss.
The due performance of this contract is subject to alteration or cancellation due to a Force Majeure Event. A Force Majeure Event means an event beyond the control of a party, which by its nature could not have been foreseen or, if it could have been foreseen, was unavoidable, and includes, without limitation, acts of God, storms, floods, riots, fires, sabotage, civil commotion or civil unrest, interference by civil or military authorities, acts of war or armed hostilities or other national or international calamity or one or more acts of terrorism or failure of energy sources. For the avoidance of doubt, it does not include circumstances where the Photographer(s) attend an Event to perform the Services and any of the Parties fail to attend.
It is the responsibility of the customer to ensure the co-operative behaviour of subjects at a shoot.
Should the photographer(s) feel unsafe at the contracted photoshoot or be subject to abuse and the customer cannot control or prevent the situation then the photographer is entitled to advise the customer of that situation and leave without forfeit on this contract (eg drunk / abusive guests at a wedding)
Where the Photographer(s) has to cancel the Event, due to circumstances beyond his/her control the full amount of the Booking Fee and any further payments received will be returned to the Client(s). Where it is possible a re-shoot may be arranged (if practicable) however, the Photographer(s) will not be responsible or liable for any additional costs incurred by the Client(s).
Should the Client wish to cancel this contract at any time, Notice of Cancellation must be given in writing to the Photographer (s). In such circumstances, the Client will be liable to pay the Photographer(s) the following sums-
• Notice received 365 days prior to the wedding date or more: Booking Fee only.
• Notice received less than 365 days but more than 182 days: 50% of the agreed balance due will be payable.
• Notice received of 182 days or less: 100% of the agreed balance will be payable.
All prices quoted are subject to V.A.T at the prevailing rate where applicable.
All complaints should be raised by the Client directly to the Photographer in writing within 14 days of the occurrence which gives rise to the complaint. The Photographer will consider the complaint and shall provide a response to the Client within 14 days of receipt of the Complaint. In the unlikely event of an unresolved complaint the Client may request the Guild of Photographers to mediate but only on the basis that its decision shall be final and binding upon both parties.
Any Notice relating to this contract should be in writing and sent by recorded delivery to the address stated in the Contract.
