Fine Print

Book your Shoot

When booking a day and time for your shoot a non-refundable deposit of $40 is required. The remainder of your session fee must be paid in cash on the day or 48 hours before your scheduled session time by direct deposit or via Paypal. After booking your shoot you’ll receive my Welcome Folder and a Contract.

Shooting Times

Shooting Times of your booking are estimates, they may be over quicker or take longer, depending on the age of the subject and other circumstances. Nothing is written in stone, and the main aim is to get great photos.

Travel

All my shoots are done in the Lake Macquarie/Newcastle/Hunter Valley area, within a radius of 1 hour travel time from my studio in Valentine. For travel farther than that additional fees apply, and only Maxi-Shoots can be booked.

Rescheduling

Sometimes things come up last minute due to work or illness. Please give at least 24 hours notice if you need to reschedule your shoot. If you have to reschedule a second time, there will be a non-refundable charge of $40 to hold another date and time. Shoots will be rescheduled as close to your original booking date as possible, that includes cancellations of outdoor shoots due to increment weather, but please understand that sometimes I am booked out weeks in advance. There is no additional booking charge if we have to reschedule due to the weather.

Print Release

This means you can print your images wherever and whenever you wish and they are yours for life. I’m happy to refer you to the printing places of my choice, which will give you the best possible printing results.
Please note that having a Print Release does not give you the Copyright. That remains with az pictured, which means you cannot alter or re-edit the photos in any way, and if you use them online you have to give credit to az pictured, that includes posting them on facebook and instagram.
For your convenience and easy online sharing I provide you also with all images in web appropriate sizes and with my watermark. These will be on the thumb drive you receive together with the full resolution images from your specified shoot.

Turn Around Time

I am usually spot-on with my timing in post-production, but should there be delays due to unforeseen circumstances (family emergencies, illness, computer dramas) I will inform you asap.

Orders of Photo Books, Canvas or Acrylic Prints

If you’d like any of your final images printed on canvas or acrylic through az pictured, please let me know. I do get special offers from my suppliers, you will not find as good a quality for these prices anywhere else.
Contact me for more information or advice.

Additional Creations

I can customize greeting cards or special announcements from your session photos. Or maybe you are interested in turning one of your images into Pop Art. Anything creative you have in mind, please let me know, and we can work something out

Safe Keeping of your Final Images

All the originals from your shoot as well as the final images will be kept in digital storage for one year from the date of the shoot. I strongly recommend to store your thumb drive in a safe place, and back-up all files on it on to at least one computer and an external hard drive. az pictured cannot be held liable for loss or destruction of files. Additional thumb drives or files on CD will be at additional cost.
