Client's Instructions and image approval

Any instructions received verbal or written, from the commissioning client(s) or their representatives, will be treated in good faith, and interpreted by Inside Out Photography as an official instruction.

Where practical
*(4) it is IOP's standard operating practice to seek ongoing approval of all images before moving on to the next subject.

Where images are viewed and approved mid-shoot by the commissioning client(s) or the commissioning client’s representatives.
This will be interpreted by Inside Out Photography as an official signing-off of said images.

Any subsequent change-of-heart and re-shoot request
may therefore incur further charges.

Unexpected Expenses

Where extra expense or time is incurred by Inside Out Photography, as a result of alterations or extensions to the original brief by the commissioning client(s) or the commissioning client’s representative(s), the commissioning client(s) may be liable to pay such extra reasonable expenses or fees at IOP’s normal rates in addition to the expenses shown as having been agreed or estimated.

Cancellations By Client

Once a shoot date is agreed IOP will commit to you the client and consider the booking firm as from the date of confirmation. IOP will accordingly reserve and honour the agreed time period, which may involve turning down work from other clients.

IOP do request that in order to avoid loss of income, that you the client inform us of any changes as soon as possible in order that we may where possible reallocate the time to other clients.

Cancellations By IOP

In the case of unforeseen illness or other personal circumstances, IOP reserves the right to postpone a photo shoot and re-arrange at a later date.

Please note: This has NEVER happened in Thirty-Two years of business any decision would never be taken lightly.
IOP do carry 'Professional Indemnity' (PI) insurance to cover any unretrievable client expenses.

Pre-incurred Expenses

In the event of cancellation of a photo shoot, Inside Out Photography may, at their discretion charge a fee to cover any such reasonable pre-incurred expenses by IOP in the preparation for the commission such as air tickets, or hotel reservations.

Mutual Consideration

Inside Out Photography's basic outlook on life is to treat everyone with respect, and in return expect the same level of personal and professional courtesy to be shown to all IOP personnel.

IOP also accepts and understands that working to a deadline can be stressful for all parties and that occasionally matters may get a little 'frayed'! However as with all interactions in life, our working relationship and the project will go much more smoothly and be more productive if we all get along.

In the highly unusual case that
IOP feels acceptable limits have been exceeded due to the client's or client's representatives continuing unreasonable behaviour, IOP reserves the right to withdraw from a shoot and to invoice for the time spent on site and/or in preparation.

Regarding unreasonable behaviour in relation to our website hosting/update services,
IOP reserves the right to withdraw from the working relationship and to terminate said website.

IOP do not accept any liability for any incurred costs arising from missed deadlines or website issues that arise out of client's or client's representatives unreasonable behaviour.

Resolving Disputes

Although it has NEVER happened in IOP's twenty-nine years of trading, in the unlikely event of dissatisfaction in regard to images supplied. Inside Out Photography must be notified within ten (10) working days of the client or clients representatives receiving and viewing said images.

After this period
IOP will regard any absence of communication as an official signing-off of said project.

Any additional re-shoot requested
may subsequently incur reasonable further charges and the original invoice must be settled in accordance to our trading terms of 30 days.

Once again; please remember
IOP are both professional and reasonable. IOP's prime concern is to ensure all of our clients go away happy with the photography and service that IOP have provided.

Photography Training T&C

All fees for Light-School photography training are required to be paid for, and funds cleared seven (7) days in advance of the training date. In the event of cancellation by the delegate within a period of seven (7) days before the training day, Inside Out Photography reserves the right to retain pre-paid fees, but will sympathetically review any application for a refund on a case-by-case basis.
