Terms and Conditions of supply – commissioned photography

INTRODUCTION – The following sections represent the basis under which I undertake photographic assignments and commissions for commercial, public relations, and editorial photography. They are intended as a background document to which specific or varied terms can be added or amended.
There are, of course, many pieces of legislation that will have an effect on how my relationship with clients works, not the least of which is the Copyright, Designs and Patents Act 1988.

COPYRIGHT – Unless agreed in advance and in writing I do not assign copyright to any clients or third parties. Please be aware that buying copyright is far more expensive than buying an extensive and wide-ranging license.
LICENSES GRANTED – As a client, you would be granted a license to reproduce and/or distribute the photographs. All licenses have geographical, time, media, and usage restrictions. My policy is to negotiate a license that meets your needs and represents the best value for money for you and/or your client. Use of the photographs outside the terms of the license granted would be a breach of copyright.
LICENSE EXTENSION OPTIONS – If, having agreed to a set of license conditions you subsequently realise that you need wider use of the photographs I am always happy to negotiate a license extension. Whilst the cost of buying extensions will be greater than that of buying the right license in the first place, you will find that my rates are very competitive.

DELIVERY METHOD AND DEADLINES – As part of the commission we will agree on how, when, and where the photographs will be delivered.

Photographs will be supplied in the agreed format within the agreed deadline. Copies of all files will be retained in line with industry best practice and any subsequent re-issue of any or all of the image files will be subject to a charge equal to the actual cost of producing and delivering them plus a 20% service charge.

THE LIMIT OF MY LIABILITY – As a professional photographer I take great care and pride in my work and in my relationship with clients and the subjects of my photography. I cannot, however, accept liability for unexpected events including poor weather, industrial disputes, sickness or injury, equipment malfunction, model release disputes, property release disputes, and other actions or accidents that are outside my control and that cannot be reasonably predicted. Please note that I carry £5million of Public Liabilities insurance, and that my photographic equipment is regularly tested and serviced. Should you require any specialist insurance to be taken out for your project, the cost will be included in the fees. Back-up copies of your images will be stored using reliable methods but I cannot accept liability for systems failures.
DISPUTE RESOLUTION – If for any reason, you have any queries about the service that I have provided I will be happy to discuss your concerns. Photography is a creative activity and I accept commissions on the basis that you are buying my skills and that you trust me to apply those skills in accordance with our discussions and verbal agreements. Written confirmation of commissions should always include any “must-have” picture requirements and, where technically and creatively possible, I will fulfill your requests. If I consider any of your requirements to be unfeasible or if any of them become so during the shoot itself I will point them out at the first possible opportunity and offer solutions.

I use a multi-layered approach to security –
“Network Security” – All of the IT is further secured using strong password protection, using a mixture of alphanumeric and symbols. Portable hard drives for use off-site and on location will not usually have personal information stored on them, and where they do they will have password protection at the drive level. I ensure all my servers, routers, laptops, desktops, smartphones etc are kept up to date with the relevant security patches and updates by the manufacturer.
“Privilege Based” – Only those who need to access your information will be able to access it. Normally that is just one person – Darren Robinson.

I use multiple alphanumeric passwords for access to all of my IT infrastructure. If access is given to a nonemployed person then an audit is carried out to ensure that only the required information is accessed and the passwords are changed.
