Photo Shoot Terms & Conditions

Please Read Carefully

By booking your Photo Shoot with Daniel James Photography you are agreeing to the following terms and conditions which are applicable to all Photo Shoots.

Last Updated: 10.03.2021

1 –  Arriving Early – please endeavour to not arrive more than 15 minutes prior to your photo shoot (to allow time for anyone in the Studio previously to vacate).

2 – Arriving Late – please note that your scheduled start time is when your time in the studio begins, this is time reserved for you and if you are late arriving this will count towards your overall allotted studio time.

3 – Failure to attend – If you fail to attend your booking without contacting prior to the photo shoot (48 hours notice) you will be required to pay an extra £10 on top of any voucher or photo shoot charge unless this is due to an emergency or other mitigating circumstance.

4 – Amending date/time – if you need to change your photo shoot date or time for any reason please contact me at least 48 hours prior to your scheduled photo shoot time where possible to allow me to re-allocate your time slot.

5 – Usage of your photographs – Daniel James Photography may, on occasion, use a photograph/s taken of you or any of your party for promotional purposes to ensure an up-to-date selection within my portfolio. This may include but not be limited to usage on the company Facebook page, retail shop, and/or website. No image of you will ever be sold for commercial purposes without your express permission.

6 – Ordering Photo Shoot prints – your photographs will be stored for a minimum of one month (though I will always aim to keep them as long as my storage capacities allow) prior to being deleted, please ensure all orders are made by this time as deletion may be carried out without warning.

7 – Up-to-date – please notify me of any changes to your contact details, especially if you have any outstanding orders to enable me to keep you and our records up to date.

8 – Check it twice – please take care to read the booking confirmation carefully as the Studio is not located at the Shop address. It is around 5 minutes away from the Shop and the details that are given within the booking confirmation e-mail will direct you (these are not published online for security reasons). The booking confirmation e-mail also contains information on what to bring along and what not to wear and so it is important to please read it carefully.

9 – Awareness – please be sure to make me aware of any medical conditions or special requirements prior to your photo shoot so that I can take appropriate measures (i.e. if you are suffering from a bad back I wont ask you to do any photographs lying down for example).

10 – Re-activation – Your Online Gallery will be live for a minimum of 1 month, at which point it will be deactivated and deleted from the website. Your images will then be moved to the Archives and a small fee may be required to re-activate the gallery for any further periods of time.

11 – All Sales Are Final – I will never pressure you to place an order at the Viewing Experience, however all orders placed at the Viewing Experience are final and will be sent to the printers/framers as soon as the session is ended. Therefore no changes can be made after this time and no refunds will be issued for mis-ordered items.

12 – Gift Voucher Upgrades – Gift Voucher items included cannot be upgraded. For example a Bronze Gift Voucher cannot be upgraded to become a Silver Gift Voucher at the Viewing Experience. There are Collections available to satisfy any additional print/gift bundle purchases.

13 – In-Studio Cameras – Please note I do not allow any photographs or video to be taken by customers in the studio (this includes camera phones) as they can interfere with the lights. Failure to adhere to this may result in an early termination of the Photo Shoot and any payments made, forfeited.

14 – Special Events – any special events such as, but not limited to,  ‘Pet Portrait Days‘ or ‘Photo Shoot Days‘ will require a 100% payment up-front and due to time limitations you are required to be at the studio at exactly the allotted time. Attendees who arrive late will have this time deducted from their photo shoot time. No refunds will be given to those changing their mind after payment has cleared and failure to attend will result in the entire payment being lost. Please be sure you are ok for the time and day prior to booking.

15 – Orders Validity – please note any orders not collected after 6 months of placing the order will be destroyed and materials sold to recover any incurred costs.

16 – Abuse – our staff are entitled to work in a safe environment and any verbal or physical abuse will not be tolerated under any circumstances.

17 – After Thoughts – please check your order carefully before leaving the shop. Once your order has left the shop then it is considered complete and accurate and as such any issues discovered thereafter may be charged at a full or partial re-print/re-edit cost dependant upon the issue/s.

These terms & conditions are subject to change at any time without notice. Please ensure you have read them thoroughly and let me know if you have any discrepancies prior to your photo shoot/s.
