Copyright Terms & Print Release Guidelines
Session fees cover the photographer’s time, detailed editing of appropriate images, maintaining the online galleries and processing of orders. Applicable payments are due at the time of scheduling to confirm and reserve your date. Any remaining balance of your session fee is due prior to the beginning of the session.
The client’s online gallery will be active within two weeks of the session.
There will be a 10-day processing time for any personal checks rendered as payment for services. We accept corporate, computer generated checks for commercial work. Please make checks payable to Tom Carr Photography. A processing and handling fee of $25 will be applied for insufficient funds.
Reproduction of images without express consent from the photographer is unlawful and strictly prohibited. Scanning, screen capturing, editing or altering the images, selling, and printing of images are all considered copyright infringement.
Tom Carr Photography retains the copyright and ownership of all images created during the portrait session and has the right to make reproductions of images for commercial use and promotional purposes. By agreeing to these terms, the client hereby releases Tom Carr Photography from all claims and liability relating to said photographs.
Tom Carr Photography provides each customer unlimited printing rights to the purchased digital images for personal (non-commercial) use. Tom Carr Photography claims a “Right of Restraint” to prohibit the use of images commissioned for printing to be used for commercial purposes without prior written agreement. The customer acknowledges that the copyright is owned by Tom Carr Photography and subsequent use will be as agreed. It does not include rights to edit or alter the image, sell them, etc. That right remains with the copyright owner/photographer. A Print Release Form is provided with all digital images.
