1. DEPOSITS for Private clients and Small Businesses: I require a 50% deposit payable by BACs or a cheque to secure your booking, however in the case of special offers or promotions I may ask for the full fee upfront. If you need to change your booking that is fine as I understand things happen but the deposit is non-refundable.

2. PROCUREMENT for Corporate clients: In some cases, such as with regular clients or large well-established companies that operate with a formal procurement programme, I may not ask for a deposit. However, if shoots are cancelled within 48 hours I reserve the right to invoice for 50% of the shoot or a pre-agreed fixed fee.

3. CANCELLATIONS: I require at least 24 hours notice to change a booking otherwise I may need to charge a cancellation fee. Clients with young children, I am very aware of how childhood illnesses can affect plans and will do my best to accommodate you but in busy times please be patient as it may be a while before we can rebook. Mini shoots and other offers must be paid for in full at the time of booking.

4. PRIVACY: Sometimes, for any number of reasons, clients want or need to keep their photographs private. I have worked with a number of clients where this has been necessary and am of course happy to oblige. Please let me know if you need me to sign an NDA or include a privacy clause in a contract or correspondence.

5. MY OWN PR: Unless we have pre-agreed to keep your images private, I may use a small number of your shoot on my website and or social media. This is an important part of my business and helps me to keep growing. I will, however, always request permission for social media sharing if children are included. 

6. In accordance with copyright law I retain copyright of the photograph(s) and understand that they may not be used in a defamatory way. See more information here about copyright and photographers. Different usage rights may apply and should be discussed prior to any shoot.

7. Work may be credited to my birth name ©SJField or my commercial business name Sarah Furniss ©SFurniss. ©Field-Furniss is also applicable.

8. Edited images are not released until the final bill has been paid in full. I do not typically release or sell RAW files. Edited files are available as part of a package or sold individually. If a client is interested in negotiating a package that includes RAW files, please mention this at the beginning of our discussions.

9. Images are edited at my discretion, and delivered packages will not include all images shot. I reserve the creative rights to edit and release only those images deemed creditable as professional in quality and within my artistic standards.

10. I am covered by Professional Indemnity and Public Liability insurance but please follow safety instructions and ensure young children are kept safe, especially when cables and lighting equipment is involved.

11. Any promotional offers made on social networking sites are not cash redeemable, and available only in relation to the full price quoted on this site. Student prices are not included. Only one promotion can ever be used at a time.

12. If extensive Photoshopping is requested in addition to reasonable and expected processing, an additional cost may be applied.

13. Gift vouchers will have a limited time within which they may be redeemed and this will be agreed with the purchaser. These T&Cs are applicable to clients booking with a gift voucher.

14. Please note, I guarantee to keep RAW files for 18 months after the end of any job. Following this, original files may be deleted. Please make sure you have backed up your images after I have sent them to you. Long-term storage can be quoted for.

15. Data: I require your full details for invoicing purposes only. I do not sell your data and it is securely stored. I may occasionally email you with news of my career and alert you to exhibitions or publications or special offers. Please discuss any concerns you may have about your data with me.

Once we have agreed to work together, we have agreed to these terms. If you have any questions or concerns please discuss with me so we can put amendments in writing prior to a photography shoot. Many thanks.
