TERMS OF SERVICE
PORTRAIT AGREEMENT TERMS & CONDITIONS
Session, Fees and Charges
1. A non-refundable Session Fee is due in order to secure the session date and time. Creativ Pro Studios Photography has the right to give the session date and time to another client if the session fee has not been received one week prior to the session.
2. The Session Fee includes up to 6 people in the session. Additional people will be an extra $25 per person unless specifically negotiated.
3. Pricing of Prints, Wall Hangings & Digital Collections: Individual prints start at $85, collages start at $390 and digital collections start at $350. The complete digital collection includes proof prints of every color photograph from your session and all high-resolution images provided in black & white and color on USB. The complete digital collection is available for $2,990.
- The client acknowledges that they have read and understood Creativ Pro Studios Photography’s pricing as per section 3. Acknowledgement of this is confirmed via payment of the session fee.
5. In the event that the client needs to reschedule the date, Creativ Pro Studios requires 24 hours’ notice. The Session Fee is transferable to another date within the following 12-month period. In the event of changes to the studio price list, prints and product pricing and availability for sessions will apply as at the newly booked date.
6. Creativ Pro Studios may reschedule the session if weather conditions will hinder the shoot (such as heavy rain). All attempts will be made to avoid this, however sometimes it is in the client’s best interest to postpone to another date with better conditions.
- Creativ Pro Studios will schedule an in-home ordering session if required or will provide an online gallery of proofs within 2 weeks of the session date unless otherwise notified. Orders are to be placed at the viewing session or online within 7 days. The gallery automatically deactivates on the 7th day.
8. If circumstances arise that the client is unable to place their order during the initial 7 days, the gallery can be reactivated for one additional 7-day timeframe. Any further reactivations will charged a Reactivation Fee of $50 per 7 day time slot, payable prior to reactivating the gallery.
9. Additional editing & Photoshop Work: Images shown in the client gallery include basic retouching (removal of blemishes, skin smoothing, reduction of dark lines under eyes). Further custom or client directed retouching is an additional $20 per image.
10. Due to gallery limits and cost of storage, where an order has not been received and paid for within 30 days of first gallery expiry date, the images will be deleted.
11. All orders must be confirmed in writing and accompanied by full payment before any order will be placed.
11. Payment plans are available with administrative fees being applied.
Use of Images and Copyright
1. The client agrees that Creativ Pro Studios owns the Copyright in all photographs. The client gives permission to Creativ Pro Studios to use any image of the session for industry competitions and as required subsequent usage and for reasonable general promotional advertising for the Creativ Pro Studios. The usage for any other purpose (such as use on social media sites) can be negotiated and noted on the Portrait Release form.
2. As Creativ Pro Studios owns the Copyright, when purchasing printed products, the client agrees not to copy, cause to be copied or allow anyone else to copy, photocopy, laser copy or computer scan any images. If clients purchase digital negatives, clients are granted authorization to obtain unlimited reprints for personal use only. The photographs provided on the DVD may not be sold, edited, altered (other then resizing for print) or used for any commercial purpose under any circumstances, without written permission. The client will use the photographs and negatives as agreed above and understand that by not doing so is a breach of this agreement.
3. Watermarked low-resolution images may be provided on social media sites and Creativ Pro Studios blog for the clients to share with friends and family. The client is welcome to tag themselves and share these images; however, altering the image in any way, including cropping out the Creativ Pro Studios watermark is a direct breach of Copyright.
4. All purchased images will remain on file for 2 years. Due to file storage limitations, unpurchased images will be deleted on 31 December each year. Ordering further prints and products is available until that date.
