Terms & Conditions
Terms of Payment
Client shall pay invoices upon receipt. There will be a $50 late payment charge on amounts due and unpaid within seven (7) days of the emailing of the invoice. On all amounts thereafter due and unpaid there will be a 1.5% per month interest charge, accruing daily, until the amount due is paid in full, not to exceed the maximum amount permissible by law.
All published usages of Images will be accompanied by written credit to Photographer or copyright notice as specified by the photography. Client agrees that the amount of the invoiced fee will be subject to a three-times multiple as reasonable compensation to Photographer for the lost value of the credit line.
Cancellations: Client is responsible for payment of all expenses incurred up to the time of cancellation of the assignment, plus 50 percent of Photographer’s fee; however, if notice of cancellation is given less than two (2) business days before the shoot date, Client will be charged 100 percent fee.
Postponements: Unless otherwise agreed in writing, Client will be charged a 100 percent fee if postponement of the assignment occurs after photographer has departed for location, and 50 percent fee if postponement occurs before departure to location.
All Images and rights relating to them, including copyright and ownership rights in the media in which the Images are stored, remain the sole and exclusive property of Photographer.
This includes any rights or privileges that may be claimed under §201(c) of the Copyright Act of 1976 or any similar provision of any applicable law. Digital files may contain copyright and other information embedded in the header of the image file or elsewhere; removing and/or altering such information is strictly prohibited and constitutes violation of the Copyright Act. All fees and expenses payable under this agreement are required irrespective of whether Client makes actual use of the Images or the licenses to use them.
