Terms and Conditions
These are the terms and conditions for paying photoshoot clients of professional photographer Titus Powell in London.
Deposits and Payment
I charge a small deposit to secure a photoshoot booking, and the remainder is due on or before the day of the shoot itself. Deposits are non-refundable.
It is fine to reschedule your photoshoot booking, one time, as long as you give a week's notice. Rescheduling more than once, or rescheduling with less than a week's notice, may require a new deposit, at my discretion.
Make-up and Hair Styling
If you select a package that includes a make-up artist (who also does hair styling), please note that the make-up and hair time is part of the overall photoshoot time. It usually takes 60-90 minutes to do the initial make-up and hair. (The packages are designed with this in mind.) Subsequent changes, if applicable, are usually much quicker.
I am so certain that you’ll love the photos and the photoshoot experience that I offer a Guarantee. If at the point we finish the shoot you are not happy for any reason, tell me and I'll delete the photos, your deposit will be refunded and you need pay nothing. It's important to me that you are happy; I want you to tell your friends and spread the word!
Delivery of Photos
A download link for all the images from the shoot (in a convenient 'internet size', 900 pixels long) will be sent to you within 24 hours of the shoot. Any that you want in huge resolution, just let me know the relevant image numbers within three months and I'll transfer those versions across to you as well. If you want me to send a USB stick with all the images from the shoot in both huge and internet sized versions, that costs just £10.
Image Copyright and Usage Rights
Technically the copyright of any photo defaults to the photographer as the 'author' of the photo. But as my client, you are granted unlimited usage rights for all of your photos for all time, meaning you don't need to ask permission to use them and can use them in any way you like. Nor do you need to credit me. The only ways you may not use the photos is selling them directly, or claiming the photographer was anyone other than Titus Powell.
Use of Your Images
I will not use any of your photos on my website or anywhere else without your permission. Any usage arising from your own distribution of them (e.g. on Facebook, to boyfriends, etc.) is entirely your own responsibility.
Storage and Deletion of Images
Normally I keep all photos for a period of 3 months, then delete the huge resolution images. If you would like me to keep your photos for a longer period, or delete them sooner, that's fine, just ask.
Any photos you choose to be retouched are edited by a professional retoucher. It generally takes just over a week to retouched a batch of up to ten photos. An express service may be possible if you need them sooner, which costs more - please ask if you need them urgently.
Please make sure you take all of your belongings with you when you leave. I am not liable for anything left behind.
Use of My Website Photos and Content
The photos, galleries and content on this website are fully protected by copyright and intellectual property law. They may not be used in any way without written permission.
