Terms and Conditions are as follows..
Booking fees are taken no matter what package or job I am competing, please see your personalised contract or package description for more information. Booking fees are non-refundable, and non-negotiable, and are decided upon initial consultation and will be paid at the time of signing the contract. A Booking fee is taken to ensure my exclusiveness for your shoot and is 50% of the fee of the job, unless discussed otherwise. There will be a 5% discount applied when the total balance is paid upon booking.
The full balance is payable no later than 12 days before the shoot date. Payment for any additional prints, frames or albums will be made after the shoot, at the time of ordering. For more information on additional prints or services, please inquire with Ross personally. Dates are reserved only when the booking fee is paid, either by cash, cheque or bank transfer. Please make cheques payable to “Ross Andrew Powell”. For direct bank transfers, please ask Ross personally for details.
Travel charges only apply when the shoot or event is outside of a 40 mile radius. This is again, non-negotiable and must be paid upon the signing of the contract, as part of the 50% deposit if applicable. I charge the standard business rate in which petrol costs which is 40 pence per mile. That covers any petrol, car ware, transportation of equipment etc. See personal contract (if signed) for more details.
Ross Andrew Photography © shall be granted full creative and artistic licence in relation to the choice of locations and poses used. My judgement on the style and number of photographs taken shall be deemed correct.

In the event of insufficient time being allowed: eg. owing to a late start or by not following any suggested time allowances, the client accepts that the quality and quantity of photographs may be jeopardised. In any event, every effort will be made by Ross Andrew Photography ©. See personal contract (if signed) for more details.
