Terms and Conditions
Please read the following terms and conditions carefully.
In the following terms & conditions “we" shall refer to Future Proof Photography Ltd. These terms & conditions cannot be varied in any way by the clients unless such conditions are expressly agreed in writing.
In the case of studio based shoots, the client agrees to supply products and populate a brief with sufficient time to allow for the sourcing of any props and ingredients that might be required for a shoot. If the product does not arrive or a brief has not been completed on time, the shoot may be delayed or cancelled and the client may be subject to last minute cancellation charges.
CANCELLATION & POSTPONEMENTS
Please note that postponements and date movements are also part of this cancellation policy
Once the Client has made a booking for a specific time and date, Future Proof Creative will not accept any other work from other clients for those times and dates.
As a result, once a booking is made, if it is subsequently cancelled or postponed, a cancellation fee will be charged to the client according to the following schedule. When a client cancels or postpones a booking within two weeks of any confirmed date, a fee of 50% of the booked time rate will be charged. When a client cancels photography within one weeks of any confirmed date, a fee of 100% of the booked time rate will be charged. In addition to this cancellation fee, the client will be charged for any expenses already incurred by Future Proof Creative.
We are happy to contribute our own creative ideas but the client is ultimately responsible for populating a working brief that is clear and contains all necessary information for the shoot.
If you have a specific vision in mind, please be sure to include detailed instructions along with reference images in the brief. A picture speaks a thousand words and will help us to see what you have in mind.
If a reshoot or edit is required due to information missing from the brief this will be at an additional cost to the client.
Any reshoots due to an unclear brief or a change of mind on the client's part will be at an additional cost to the client.
If you mention anything to us via email or phone please add it to the brief to ensure it will be factored in during the shoot as we will exclusively refer to the brief during the shoot.
PROPS AND FOOD
We have a well equipped studio with a variety of props, but if a project requires other props we will ask the client to source and send them along with their product, or arrange for them to be sent to the studio address.
Shoots requiring simple food props or flavour cues will be sourced locally and invoiced back to the client but for more complex setups requiring larger quantities of food, out of season ingredients or complex recipe prep we will ask the client to arrange for delivery of items to the studio.
Future Proof Photography Ltd will deliver digital files via Dropbox within 7 days of the shoot unless otherwise specified.
Payment in full is to be made no later than 14 days after the content is delivered. Failure to make the payment within this period will result in a late payment fee plus statutory interest (8% plus current Bank of England base rate):
- Extra £40 fee to be added for debts less than £1000 (plus statutory interest)
- Extra £70 fee to be added for debts between £1000 - £10,000 (plus statutory interest)
- Extra £100 fee to be added for debts more than £10,000 (plus statutory interest)
If the full payment including late payment fee has not been made within 7 days of the notice, further action will be taken. This will begin with a mediator, followed by court action if mediation is unsuccessful.
