Terms & Conditions

Photography session contract

Note – For the purpose of this document Mandy Nevill Photography shall be referred to as MNP.  The visitor to the site or the individual (whether representing an organisation or not) who orders an image shall be referred to as the Client.

1) APPLICABLE LAW

  1. a) The laws of England and Wales shall govern this agreement. These Terms and Conditions shall not be varied except by agreement in writing.

  2. b) In the event of any conflict between these terms and conditions (including those relating to the time of payment) and those issued or submitted by the Client and in the absence of any contrary agreement in writing these Terms and Conditions shall prevail.

2) SESSION FEE

  1. a) By booking with MNP you enter into a contract and have therefore agreed to abide by the terms and conditions.

  2. b) Session fees taken for newborn, outdoor and portrait sessions, are non refundable except in the event MNP cancels the booking. lf a booking is made online, and no suitable date can be arranged for the chosen session after consultation, then a refund will be given.

3)IMAGES ONLINE

  1. a) It is illegal to attempt to download, or to attempt to remove a watermark from, any image taken and posted online by MNP for any reason. Should an image online be saved via any means, and used elsewhere without the written permission of MNP, whether the copyright has been removed or not, a copyright infringement fee of £1000 per image will be applied to avoid court action, and must be paid within 28 days.

4) FULFILLMENT OF OBLIGATIONS

  1. a) MNP shall not be liable to the Client for any failure, in whole or in part, to fulfil its obligations where failure arises as a result of an event or circumstances beyond its control, which may include (but are not limited to) equipment failure, inclement weather, illness or injury.

  2. b) The Client understands and accepts that the photographic coverage will be as MNP professional expertise determines. Special requests are not binding instructions although every effort is made to comply with the Client’s wishes.

  3. c) In the unlikely event of total photographic failure or cancellation of the contract by either party 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 losses.

  4. d) If Client fails to read the supplied PDF brochure, and therefore fails to carry out required preparations prior to a newborn session, MNP will not be held responsible for any resulting reductions in quality or quantity of images supplied.

  5. e) Clients must choose their required images within two weeks of their gallery being uploaded. If images are not chosen within this time, a charge of £10 will occur to re-open the online gallery.

5) PRINTS. 

  1. a) All images produced by MNP are done on a fully calibrated monitor, and all prints will be a true reflection of the editing carried out by MNP. MNP will not be held responsible for variances in images caused by clients viewing images on non calibrated screens or monitors.

  2. b) All prices are subject to change without notice by MNP. No consideration will be given to previous clients regarding product pricing, availability, package structure, or session fees.

  1. a) Although MNP will do its best to produce more proofs than discussed with the Client there is no guarantee that any particular number of proofs will be produced.

7) IMAGE PRODUCTION AND HANDLING

  1. a) Save as otherwise agreed between the Client and MNP, MNP shall be entitled to use its judgement regarding the style and artistic input in the production of pictures. This includes but is not limited to locations, poses and number of images taken. Due to the vagaries of weather and the willingness of subjects it may not be possible to capture all the pictures requested, or images to the clients full expectations. In the event of unco-operative children at a session of any kind, for any reason, MNP may not be able to capture any, or all the images the Client may have requested or expected. The Client is responsible for all children at all sessions.

  2. b) MNP fully edits all images before presenting to Client. Additional edits are carried out at the discretion of MNP, and MNP reserves the right to charge the Client for additional editing to cover time involved, at a rate of £17 per image. Any additional edit requests MUST be raised by Client at the proofing stage. Requests not raised at proofing stage will not be considered once products have been ordered.

8) COPYRIGHT & REPRODUCTION

  1. a) Copyright is retained by MNP at all times throughout the world. No image can be copied, scanned or reproduced in any form whatsoever without the prior consent of MNP.  This includes saving, screen grabbing and downloading from Facebook or other social media.

  2. b) The Client may not alter or add to or manipulate a picture by means of computer or any other technique or reproduce a picture in whole or in part as an element within, or as a montage with, another picture without MNP’s written permission.

  3. c) Permission to reproduce a picture is granted to the Client by MNP only when a fee for the reproduction has been agreed with MNP and an invoice has been issued by MNP and paid in full by the Client to MNP.

  4. d) In the event of unauthorised reproduction, the Client shall pay by way of liquidated damages to MNP an unauthorised use fee of £1000 per image, or double the standard reproduction fee for the use concerned, whichever is the greater.

  5. e) The right to reproduce a picture granted by MNP is personal to the Client and may not be assigned to any third party without MNP’s prior written consent.

  6. f) The Client will fully indemnify MNP against any unauthorised reproduction of a picture submitted to the Client made by any third party as a result of or arising out of any breach by the Client of any of these terms and conditions (including but not by way of limitation the Client allowing a picture or a copy thereof to come into the possession of a third party without MNP’s prior written consent).

9) IDENTIFICATION

  1. a) While MNP has taken reasonable care to correctly identify, caption and orientate the pictures, it does not accept any liability for loss or damage incurred by the Client or any third party caused by any errors.

  1. a) The pictures are presumed to have been received in good condition unless the Client notifies MNP in writing of any discrepancy or error within 14 days of receipt.

11) COOLING OFF PERIOD
