Terms & Conditions
The following is a list of standard terms and conditions used by photographers, these are provided in the interests of both “the Client” defined as the named person on the booking form and Lucy Gittins Photography (Lucy Gittins) (“the Photographer”). Please ensure that you have read and understood these terms before placing your booking. The Client is deemed to have accepted the terms and conditions in full upon payment of the booking fee. It is agreed that the terms represent the total agreement made between the parties and cannot be varied in any way by the Client unless expressly agreed by the Photographer in writing.
NON-REFUNDABLE BOOKING FEE - The purpose of the £25 booking fee is to secure the Photographer for a particular time and date and is therefore non-refundable and non-transferable in the event of cancellation by the Client. Payment may be made by bank transfer (details below), which should be made payable to Lucy Gittins. Dates are only reserved once the booking fee has been received in full.
PAYMENT - Full payment of the remaining balance can be made through bank transfer before your session or paid in cash during your session.
CANCELLATION BY THE CLIENT - In the event of cancellation by the Client, the Client will not receive a refund of the non-refundable booking fee paid after the 14-day cooling off period, which begins the day the non-refundable booking fee is paid. The purpose of this is to cover the loss of earnings caused by the cancellation. If cancelling after the full balance is paid, the Client will not be returned any money.
CANCELLATION BY THE PHOTOGRAPHER - In the unlikely event that the Photographer is forced to cancel this contract for reasons beyond control or if unforeseen circumstances, liability is limited to a full refund of money paid to date. Lucy Gittins and Lucy Gittins Photography will never be liable for more than the total value of the contract.
COPYRIGHT - The copyright in all photographs created by the Photographer shall remain the property of the Photographer in accordance with the Copyright, Designs & Patents Act 1988’. The Photographer reserves the right to use the images taken under this contract for advertising, editorial, display and competition purposes or for any other purpose thought proper by the Photographer without compensation or liability to the Client. The Client is forbidden to edit the photos – this includes adding filters, cropping or changing the colours in any way.
IMAGE FILES - High-resolution image files are provided via online gallery to the Client for their personal use only and are supplied with the ‘right to print’. The Client is allowed to share online only if they credit the Photographer. No liability can be held for loss or damage to image files after safe delivery to the Client. Your images will be stored in the online gallery for 6 months after the session and you are strongly recommended to download them as soon as you receive them.
RETOUCHING FEES - The Photographer includes standard editing in the cost, such as making basic adjustments (ie lighting, contrast, colour correction) and adding a signature style. It does not include more involved Photoshopping, such as adding or removing anything from the image or doing extensive touch ups. Under no circumstances will the Photographer edit using selective colour or add in anything that wasn’t present, or change the way people look (apart from removing unexpected spots), and the Client is not permitted to edit the photos in any way. If the Client would like any colour photos in black and white or black and white photos in colour, or any cropping done, there may be a small editing charge for this depending on how many images are involved.
IMAGES - The Photographer will endeavour to deliver the images to the Client between 2-6 weeks after the session, but this may be slightly longer in the high season (e.g wedding season / Christmas) They will be delivered via downloadable online gallery.
CLIENT DECLARATION - By paying the non-refundable booking fee of £25 and signing this contract (by adding your names and date on the booking form below the link to this page), the Client agrees to be bound by the terms of business and would like to book the services of the Photographer.
