It is also understood that the Client is hiring the Photographer for her technical and artistic expertise and, therefore, the Photographer reserves the right to edit the Images as she sees fit. The Client is expected to have viewed the photographer’s previous work and therefore should expect to receive images of the same style and structure.
Where photographic works are not of an acceptable technical quality, making it unfit for the purpose of its specified use, then no fee or job-related costs are due to the Photographer.
The Photographer has the right to rectify the defect causing the rejection within a reasonable time, having regard to the urgency of the work. If rectified the Photographer is entitled to their fee and job-related costs but may not charge the client an extra fee or cost for rectifying the defect.
If the Photographer produces photographic works that are in the same style and structure as the Photographer’s past works (by reference to the Photographer’s portfolio), the client is deemed to have accepted the Photographer’s artistic interpretation.
The client acknowledges that images may appear different on computer screens and prints could be different depending on the photographic lab where they choose to print their images.
Colours may also fade over time, and this is out of the photographer’s control.
The client is responsible for backing up their images. “Sarah Marshall Photography” Will keep 1-3 copies of all the images for as long as possible but is not liable for the loss of any of the client’s images once the job is completed.
This occurs for many reasons and therefore the client will never receive a copy of every shot.
The final images given are chosen by the photographer.
