  • When placing an order we require payment before your order can be processed and printed.
  • Orders are normally ready within two weeks of placing the order, however, this is extended to within four weeks of placing your order during peak seasons.   You will be notified when your order is ready for collection from our shop, unless you have asked for your prints to be posted in which case a charge for postage costs will be added to your order.
  • If you do not state at the time of ordering that you require your photographs to be posted, we will assume they are to be collected from the store.

Copyright

The 1988 Copyright Act assigns the copyright to the Photographer. It is contrary to the Act to copy, publish, reproduce or store images electronically, unless the express permission of The Studio has been purchased. If permission is granted, then transfer of the copyright commences only once payment for the copyright has been made in full.
The Client may not (either personally or via a third party) 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.

Photographs

All photograph sizes are nominal. The Photographer will provide a pleasing colour balance but cannot guarantee exact colour matching. In the case of part mono/part colour images, the colours used will be subject to the photographer’s artistic interpretation and will be deemed to be correct.
All photographs supplied by The Studio are produced to the highest standards using the best quality materials and latest processing techniques. However, all photographs will, in time, fade. This is particularly true if they are left in bright sunlight and are not behind glass. The Studio cannot accept any responsibility for this gradual image deterioration.
All pictures purchased are presumed to have been received in good condition, unless the Client notifies The Studio in writing of any discrepancy or error within 14 days of receipt.

 

Display

The Photographer reserves the right for any photograph created during sessions to be displayed in the Studio, portfolio, or in any other advertising directly associated with The Studio.  If you would prefer for your photographs not to be used, please notify us accordingly.

 

Force Majeure

Every effort will be made to carry out the contract but its due performance is subject to alteration or cancellation by the Photographers owing to any cause beyond

their control (eg acts of God, change in legislation, floods, fire, computer failure, etc.). In the unlikely event of total photographic failure or cancellation of this

contract by the Photographers, liability shall be limited to a full refund of all monies paid.
