RESHOOTS ::

My mission is to produce high quality, creative and effective images that you can use. If you feel that I did not achieve this during our session, I'm willing to reshoot for no extra cost in order to get the images you need. Why? Because doing good work leads to other work -- the primary way I get business is through referrals, so if a client is happy if the work, they're more likely to send other business my way.

RETAINER ::

A 50% retainer of the session's cost is required to reserve the date of the session. Payment for this can be sent to through Paypal :: HERE ::

CANCELLATIONS & MISSED APPOINTMENTS ::

A full refund of the retainer will be returned with cancellations given 24 hours prior to the reservation's time. Missed appointments not cancelled within 24 hours of the scheduled session result in a non-refundable retainer.

BEING LATE ::

As far as being late...don't be! We're talking about your time here as much as mine, plus you're paying for it. I also share my studio with other professional photographers and we like to run a tight ship with the schedule. When a client is late it can potentially cut into another client's time. Any person late over 15 minutes will be charged a fee of $25 on top of the session's cost. I do know unforseen difficulties can arise...please call me at 206.427.8188 if something does occur.

IMAGE USAGE ::

Malcolm Smith Photography retains the ownership of all images produced during each session, and the right to use these images for any promotional and/or commercial purpose. The client will have limited use of these images for promotional use (namely, web and print). Any use beyond this without the expressed written consent of Malcolm Smith Photography is strictly prohibited. If the client wishes to buy the ownership of the images from Malcolm Smith Photography, the price will be three times the cost of the session (other lisencing may be arranged prior to the session). If you'd like to look over the contract that you'll sign in the studio, you can download a file of it :: HERE ::
