In the following terms & conditions “the photographer” shall mean Cathryn Jupp.

“The client(s)” shall be those persons defined as named on the booking form. These terms & conditions cannot be varied in any way by the client(s) unless such conditions are expressly agreed to by the photographer in writing.

1. Copyright:

The Australian statutory copyright laws assign the copyright of the images to the photographer.

2. Display:

The client(s) hereby allow(s) the photographer to display any photograph covered by this contract and to generally promote the business in advertising, brochures, magazine articles, websites, sample albums etc.

3. License, Coverage and Reproduction:

Photographs taken during the course of the session will be at the discretion of the photographer although every effort will be made to comply with the clients requirements.

The photographer shall be granted artistic license in relation to the poses photographed and the locations used. The photographer’s judgement regarding these matters shall be deemed correct.

The photographer shall endeavour to photograph all individuals as requested by the client(s) at some point, but no responsibility will be taken by the photographer on the occasion of leaving somebody out.

For a booking involving a public place or at certain venues, the photographer’s movements are sometimes restricted by the official in charge. The area from which the photographer is able to work may not be the photographer’s choice and the photographer cannot accept responsibility for any obstructed view should this be the case.

Due to a variety of lighting conditions and the limitations of digital sensors, some colours may alter throughout a set of photographs.

Although all equipment is checked regularly and reasonable steps are taken to ensure backup equipment is available, the photographer will not be responsible for photographs that are not produced due to technical failure.

4. Prices:

All standard packages and additional goods specified on the photographer’s website are supplied at the prices ruling on the date of booking. Any non-standard packages or goods are bound by the individual agreement negotiated between the client(s) and the photographer.

5. Payments:

For all portrait sessions, a non-refundable session fee will confirm your booking, as well as full acceptance of the terms and conditions as published on the photographer’s website.

Payment for packages and/or additional goods ordered must be paid for in full at the time of ordering.

Titles to all goods remains with the the photographer until paid for in full by the client(s)

6. Force Majeure: (Things out of my control)

The photographer will endeavour to put the client(s) in touch with another photographer in the event they are unable to attend on the session date due to any cause beyond their reasonable control e.g. sudden illness, injury, victim of crime, flooding etc.

In the event of cancellation by the photographer, or in the very unlikely event of total photographic failure, liability shall be limited to a full refund of any fees paid.

7. Ownership:

All digital negatives and film (computer files) remain the property of the photographer.

8. Cancellation Fees:

If the client(s) should have to cancel a booking for any reason, then the photographer must be notified in writing. This can be done by email or in writing, with confirmation of the cancellation acknowledged as having been received by the photographer.

The session fee is transferable to another time, subject to the photographer’s availability, but is, however, non-refundable.

9. Personal Accident:

Any directions issued to client(s), their guests or employees during a photographic shoot are deemed to be at said persons own risk. The photographer cannot be held responsible for any personal accidents during a photographic shoot.

Any children under 18 years of age will be under the client’s constant supervision during the shoot and the client(s) are responsible for them at all times.
