Terms & Conditions of Business
The placing of an order by the client and the acceptance of that order by Anthony Gurr Photography (thereafter referred to as the Photographer), brings into being a contract on the Photographer’s Terms and Conditions as detailed in the following paragraphs. ‘Photographs’ means all photographic material provided by the Photographer, in physical or electronic format.
2. STANDARD PAYMENT TERMS
We ask that full payment is made within 14 days of the photographs being provided.
The full Copyright on the photographs is retained by the Photographer at all times throughout the world.
4. OWNERSHIP OF MATERIALS
Title to all photographs remains the property of the Photographer.
The client is licensed to publish the photographs to the exclusion of all other persons including the Photographer during the first year of the Licence period. However, the Photographer retains the right in all cases to use the photographs in any manner at any time and in any part of the world for the purposes of advertising or otherwise promoting their work. After the first year of Licence period indicated above the Photographer is entitled to use the photographs for any purpose.
Cancellation fees are payable when a shoot has been confirmed in writing, then cancelled. Within 24hrs 100% fee plus any expenses incurred. Within 2-7 days 50% fee plus any expenses incurred.
7. RIGHT TO A CREDIT
It is the legal right of the Photographer to have their name printed on, or in reasonable proximity to, all published reproduction of the photographs.
In all cases the client will indemnify the Photographer against any expenses, damages, claims and legal costs arising out of any failure to obtain clearances in respect of third party Copyright works, trade marks, designs or other intellectual property.
Neither the Photographer or their agents shall accept liability for any loss or damage of any kind, including consequential damage howsoever caused, to any goods, materials or other property belonging to the client, whether in transit or whilst in the custody, power or possession of the Photographer. Clients are advised to ensure material of value is suitably insured against all risks.
Where extra expenses or time are incurred by the Photographer as result of alteration to the original brief by the client, or otherwise at their request, the client shall give approval to and be liable to pay such extra expenses or fees at the Photographer’s normal rate to the Photographer in addition to the agreed or estimated expenses.
Where applicable, appropriate charges will be made for post and packing, delivery or electronic file transmission.
If no representative of the client is present during a shoot and in the absence of a written brief or specific layout, the Photographer’s judgement is final. Rejection of the work on the basis of style, composition or lighting is not acceptable. Any complaint must be made in writing within 24 hours of receipt of final images.
13. MANIPULATION OR ALTERATION OF PHOTOGRAPHS
Manipulation of a photograph, or use of only a portion of the photograph may only take place with the prior permission of the Photographer.
14. CLIENT CONFIDENTIALITY
The Photographer will keep confidential and will not disclose to any third parties or make any use of any material or information communicated to him in confidence for the purposes of the photography, save as may be reasonably necessary to enable the Photographer to carry out his obligations in relation to the commission.
