Nothing shall be deemed as a release, transfer, assignment or other disposal of WPW’s rights in the material, save as agreed by WPW in writing. 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.

Display

WPW may use any images included in this contract in their studio, web site, portfolio, literature, display areas, exhibitions, competitions, advertising, slide shows or other commercial applications.

Image specification

All image sizes are nominal. The Photographer/s will provide a pleasing colour balance but cannot guarantee exact colour matching owing to anomalous reflectance caused by a combination of certain dyes and materials especially man-made fibres. It is sometimes impossible to record digitally the exact colour as seen by the human eye. WPW reserve the right to present suitably edited/selective copies of images taken.

License

WPW shall be granted artistic license in relation to the poses photographed and the locations used and no photograph will be deemed more important than another. The Photographers judgment regarding the locations, poses and number of images taken shall be final. Due to the vagaries of the weather and the willingness of subjects or limitations in time available, it may not be possible to capture all the images requested. Special requests are not binding instruction, although every effort will be made to comply with client’s wishes. These must be noted in writing.

Preview

Although the photographer will provide a maximum number of images for proof as discussed with the client, there is no guarantee that a particular number of proofs will be produced.

Force majeure or Act of God

The due performance of this contract is subject to alteration or cancellation by either party owing to any cause beyond their control.

Attendance

In the unlikely event of the assigned Photographer being unable to attend due to unforeseen circumstances, we reserve the right to appoint another photographer to attend on our behalf.

Limitation of Liability

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 indirect or consequential loss.

Complaints

Any complaints should first be raised by the Client with WPW in writing within 28 days of first becoming aware of the matter to be complained of and in any event within 28 days of the date of provision of web gallery preview images.

I have read the booking form and these Terms and Conditions and agree to abide by the terms set out in it. I understand that the terms of this agreement cannot be changed unless agreed by both parties in writing.
