7. Client’s materials

The Client accepts full responsibility for any materials that they supply for use in the photographs and that the materials are adequately insured against loss, damage or liability.

8. Your Session

It is expected that in booking Dragonfly Creative Studio you have an understanding of the photographer’s style. While they are happy to attempt to take on board client requests, no commitment is made to create and present any specific image or variation in processing.

Dragonfly Creative Studio does not allow the use of any cameras or recording devices outside of that being used by the photographer during the course of the session.

Photo sessions involve physical activity. This is undertaken at the client’s own risk.

Rescheduling of shoots due to weather is at the discretion of Dragonfly Creative Studio. The decision to reschedule will be based on the location, the severity of the weather, and the age of children involved. In the event that illness or other unforeseen circumstances arise, the client may reschedule the session, although maximum notice is appreciated (limit of 1 reschedule per client).

Should a session be cancelled with no plans to reschedule, booking and session fees will not be refunded. Failure to appear on the day of the session will result in the forfeit of your booking fee.

Re-shoots are at the discretion of Dragonfly Creative Studio. They occur only in situations where the photographer believes that they have not been able to complete what they need to provide a full gallery of images to the client. Regrettable choices of clothing or hairstyle by clients do not fall into this category nor does uncooperative or reluctant behaviour from children over the ages of 7 or adults taking part in the shoot. A re-shoot due to these factors will be done at the cost of the client.

9. Indemnity

Dragonfly Creative Studio shall not be liable for any legal action, claim or damages resulting from or arising out of the publication of the photographs or other use by the client. The client shall indemnify Dragonfly Creative Studio against any claims and/or damages against them as a result of the client’s use of the photographs.

10. Client Approval

If the client is not present during the actual photography sessions then Dragonfly Creative Studio’s interpretation of the assignment will be accepted. Unless a rejection fee is agreed in advance then there is no right of rejection.

11. Cancellation and postponements

Once Dragonfly Creative Studio has been commissioned, The Client is responsible for payment of all expenses incurred up to the time of cancellation and Dragonfly Creative Studio will be entitled to charge a fee for cancellation or postponement at their discretion.

12. Right to a credit

Dragonfly Creative Studio’s name will be printed in reasonable proximity to all published reproductions of the photographs unless agreed otherwise prior to the work commencing.

14. Inherent Qualities

 The Client is aware that colour dyes and inks in photography may fade or discolour over time due to the inherent qualities of the materials employed, and Client releases Dragonfly Creative Studio from any liability for any claims whatsoever based upon fading or discoloration due to such inherent qualities.

15. Prints

All photos purchased have been individually processed, colour corrected and enhanced to bring the image to its full potential. A professional lab prints all work and all prints are quality checked before being presented to the client to ensure that they are of a high standard, both in printing and in colour. Prints may appear slightly different to the image displayed on a client monitor due to variation in the client’s calibration. Digital files printed by the client at a non-professional lab may show a colour shift and Dragonfly Creative Studio is not liable for colour problems of prints that have been printed at a one-hour photo lab or similar.

16. Miscellaneous

These terms shall not be varied except by agreement in writing. This agreement is governed by the Laws of New South Wales.
