AGREEMENT

1) This document comprises an agreement between yourselves and CapturePro Photography Australia Pty Ltd (ABN 39 784 541 161) upon payment of your non-refundable booking deposit and acceptance by us. Your acceptance of these terms and conditions occurs upon your payment of the retainer fee.

Client specifically and irrevocably confers personal jurisdiction over it by the courts of the state of Queensland Australia. Client will pay all arbitration and court costs, reasonable legal fees, expenses, and legal interest, on any award or judgement in favour of Photographer.

5) By accepting these terms and conditions, you acknowledge that you are at least eighteen years of age, or the legal age to form a binding contract within your legal jurisdiction.

2) Client will indemnify, defend, and hold harmless, Photographer, his contractors, and his representatives, against any and all claims, liabilities, damages, costs, and expenses, including reasonable legal fees and expenses, that may arise from Client’s use of any Image(s).

3) Photographer is not responsible for obtaining model, property, trademark, copyright, or any other, releases in connection with the Image(s) unless specifically stated in this Agreement. It is Client’s responsibility to obtain all necessary permissions for any Image use that requires a release or other consents.

5) In any event, Photographer’s liability for all claims will not exceed the total amount paid under this Agreement.


 COPYRIGHT

1)   Copyright in the photographs is retained by the client for private, domestic, and personal use only. Any sale or commercial use must have written approval by CapturePro Photography. CapturePro Photography asserts all moral rights attached to the Photographs and the Client does NOT have the right to edit, change, add to, take from, alter, or otherwise amend the Photographs without the prior written consent of CapturePro Photography.

You may also submit them to online or print publications. We only require that you acknowledge CapturePro Photography Australia as the photographer and request a credit and website link when using images in notices and media (ie. Magazines, Newspapers, Blogs, Websites, etc).

3) Client will not make or permit any alterations, including, but not limited to, filters, additions, subtractions, or adaptations, with respect of the Image(s), alone or with any other material, without the prior express permission of Photographer. 

4) Copyright metadata contained within any digital file may not be altered, or removed, without the express consent of Photographer.

5) Unless otherwise agreed, Photographer retains the right to use the Image(s) for his self-promotion.

IMAGE STYLE & EDITING PROCESS

1) The client acknowledges that they are familiar with our style, and that our work is continually evolving and are of a unique and artistic nature, that the photos taken may be different from those taken in the past and that CapturePro Photography will use their expertise and artistic judgement to create images consistent with their vision, which may be different from the clients.

2) Photographer is committed to providing high quality services. Unless otherwise specified, Photographer may deliver, and Client agrees to accept, the Image(s) encoded in an industry-standard data format that Photographer may select, at a resolution that Photographer determines will be suitable to the reproduction technology and use(s) for which the Image(s) is licensed.

3) Photographer uses cameras and monitors that are colour calibrated to industry standards. But due to variances in other monitors, software and computer platforms, the Image(s) may display differently on other monitors. Therefore, neutrals will be set for mathematical neutrality and colour will be adjusted for pleasing tonalities.

4) It is Client’s responsibility to verify that the digital data, including colour profile, if provided, are suitable for reproduction of the expected quality and colour accuracy, and that all necessary steps are taken to ensure correct reproduction. If the data are not deemed suitable, Photographer’s sole obligation will be to replace or repair the data, but in no event will Photographer be liable for poor reproduction quality, delays, losses, expenses, or consequential damages, resulting directly, or indirectly, from defects or errors in digital files or their use.

5) All editing is done at the photographer’s discretion. The photographer reserves the right to refuse any additional edits requested. Some images may only be produced in colour or black and white at the artists discretion. If the client(s) wish to request additional editing of images this is done at a separate fee starting at $20 to $50 per image.

PAYMENT

1) No rights are granted until photographer has received full payment, including, if applicable, any late-payment charges.

2) Unless otherwise agreed, the use of any image(s) prior to full payment will be considered an unauthorized use. Client agrees that the reasonable and stipulated amount that will be paid to photographer for such an unauthorized use will be double the invoice total. This includes screen captures from preview albums and downloads from Facebook, other social media or photographer website.

3) Where usage rights before full payment are granted, Photographer reserves the right to rescind any such usage rights if Client fails to make timely payment.

4) Photographer does not provide any receipts to Client. Client’s proof of payment will serve as Client’s receipt for work performed and services rendered. Bank transfer fees are the responsibility of the Client.
