Booking fee
A booking fee of 50% is required to secure your photoshoot date. Dates are reserved only when the booking fee is paid. This sum will apply towards the contracted fee and is non refundable.

The outstanding fee is payable in full 1 month before the photoshoot. Payment for additional services on the photographs is made when these are ordered, i.e. digital enhancements or reprints. Any bank charges incurred due to returned cheques will be debited to the client. Additional costs may be charged on reprint orders placed 12 months after the job.

Accommodation and travel costs
Return journeys in excess of 50 miles may attract a mileage charge of 40p per mile. Overnight accommodation may be required for photoshoots over 100 miles away from Central London. This is to ensure that your photographer is in the best condition for your photoshoot shoot.

Weather and delays
Weather permitting the photographs will be taken as agreed. In the event of inclement weather the photographer, in cooperation with the client will make necessary changes to the schedule and will do her best to produce coverage of the job within the time allocated to her. Similarly, when delays occur due to circumstances out of her control, the photographer will stay on beyond the agreed time if required, for an additional fee.

Requested photographs
The photographer will honor requests for specific photographs subject to the following: weather and time permitting, availability and the cooperation of the persons involved. All such requested photographs must form part of the clients’ final order. ‘Amie Herriott’ cannot be held responsible for the lack of coverage caused by the subject. The photographer does not guarantee any specific picture nor to include any specific background, location prop or arrangement although every effort will be made to interpret the client’s wishes.

Image reproduction
a) Owing to photochromatic anomalies caused by a combination of certain dyes and materials, especially in man-made fibres, it is sometimes impossible to record on camera the exact colour of materials as perceived by the human eye. When processing images, the photographers will endeavour to achieve a pleasing overall colour balance based on natural flesh tones.
b) It is understood that some colours may not remain consistent throughout a set of photographs owing to variations in lighting conditions. It is also understood that all photographic printing is undertaken within the technical limitations of the process and that colour may not be identical over the whole range within a subject. The colour balance of prints made at different times or in varying sizes may also be variable.
c) Due to the limitations of computer monitors it is understood that images may appear differently according to the specification of each monitor and that prints will not match images rendered on any particular computer monitor.

All rights to the image(s) are owned by ‘Amie Herriott’ and are protected by International copyright laws and other applicable laws. ‘Amie Herriott’ reserves the right to use the photographs for display, promotional and all other purposes unless otherwise agreed with the client. Amie Herriott gives permission to the client to reproduce the image(s) for personal use only.

In the highly unlikely event of cancellation by photographer , (e.g. death, injury, sickness, conflict, natural disaster etc.), or unavoidable total photographic failure, the photographers’ liability shall be limited to a full refund of any booking fees and fees paid. Re-shoots may be arranged if practicable but the photographer will not be responsible for any further costs.

If the Clients should have to cancel they are entitled to a full refund of the 50% booking fee if they withdraw within 14 days of booking.  The booking fee of 50% will be forfeited on cancellations made after 14 days.
