TERMS AND CONDITIONS
Copyright of Images
Under the copyright and patents act of 1988, Véronique Sampson Photography retains the copyright of all images taken. It is a criminal offence to copy, screen shot, scan or reproduce photographs without written consent by Véronique Sampson Photography. Once you have purchased digital files you are granted a licence to use your images for personal use. Your purchased files can then be used for sharing with your friends and family on social media sites, for updating model or acting portfolios, and printing out for yourself, family and friends. These images are not to be sold or given to any third parties without prior consent.
Images that are purchased as digital files are not to be altered in any way (cropped or edited) that will change the integrity of the image without prior consent.
Images taken in photographic sessions may be used by Véronique Sampson Photography for display or marketing purposes. This could include social media, marketing literature, or pages of this website. This is for the purpose of promoting my photography so potential clients can see the style of my work. If you would prefer your child's images not to be displayed in this way please let me know in writing when you book your photographic session.
The use of video recording and your own camera is forbidden during your photographic session.
Booking and Payment
A fee is payable when you book your photographic session and this secures your date and time in the diary. This fee is non-refundable but fully transferable to another date if at least 5 days notice is given. This does not include illness as I understand this can happen at anytime. If your child is ill on the date of the shoot please contact me as soon as possible so we can reschedule your appointment.
Payment for orders of digital files, prints and artwork is due in full at the time of ordering.
If Véronique Sampson becomes injured, too ill to work or an emergency occurs, your appointment may need to be cancelled and re-scheduled to a new date. Véronique will make every effort to re-book your appointment to a convenient time for you. If a new appointment date can't be agreed, you agree and accept that the responsibility and liabilities of Véronique Sampson Photography is limited to the returning of any fees or deposits paid towards your booking or session fee. Véronique Sampson Photography is not responsible for any consequential loss, damages, charges, expenses, accommodation or travel costs.
In the unlikely event of equipment failure, damage or theft that leads to the loss of images captured in your portrait session, liability is limited to the refund of any fees paid by you in relation to the session fee or portrait package to Véronique Sampson Photography.
By booking a photographic session with Véronique Sampson Photography you are agreeing to all the above terms and conditions.
