Terms & Information

1. Copyright

I retain all copyright to my photographs. By commissioning me, you are free to use purchased works for agreed purpose only - ie, sharing media versions online or hanging on your wall. You are prohibited to personally or commercially distribute, re-distribute, repurpose or reproduce in part or in full, any element of my photography by any media whatsoever. Removal of my copyright, signature or any other mark which identifies any work as mine - by edit, manipulation or cropping is deemed as copyright infringement liable to prosecution. I do not permit my work to be used in full or part for the promotion of any other business. If in doubt, shout!

2. Advertising

By commissioning me, you agree that I may use selected works for the non-exclusive purpose of marketing / promotion of Scotia M Photography. I do not use photographs which contain a human element without written permission. Photographs which contain minors under the age of eighteen (18) are never used for this purpose.

3. Payments

Session payment is due in full upon booking confirmation. You are reserving me for your preferred / specific date & I will refuse further booking requests for that date. Additional product payments are due at point of order & prior to printing, this includes any VAT & delivery fees where you are unable to collect.

4. Cancellation

Where you cancel, I will offer an alternative date in keeping with the one you booked - ie weekend / weekday. If the alternative date is unsuitable, I provide a Gift Voucher to the value of your session valid for 6mths. Where cancellation is due to adverse weather, I offer the next available date in keeping with your booking.

5. Refund Policy

If you are not delighted with your photographs, I provide a free re-shoot in keeping with the previous booking. If you are unhappy with any printed item, I have them reprinted upon the return of the originals. I do not refund session fees within eight weeks of the booking date. However, in the event of proven loss I approach session refunds with due compassion.

6. Turnaround

Session to showcase to print & delivery will vary. While I can upload your showcase within in a few days, I like to give clients time to select their favourite images. Since I work with several clients at a time & value each session equally - editing & sending your images for print, is subject to this. Unless you have booked with a deadline please appreciate I cannot provide a delivery date within four weeks. Timescales rely on how quickly each client selects photographs, agrees proofs & purchases products.
