This page constitutes a brief outline of the policies in place by JT. Foulds Photography. Please feel free to request further information on any specific area of concern.
JT. Foulds Photography, and any employed associate, is fully insured (worldwide) via Chubb Canada under the Still Photographers Insurance Program. This includes 3rd party coverage/liability insurance for rented property, equipment and event goers affected by staff. All work is equally insured against loss due to corruption of data, theft, seizure or quarantine, the impairment of computer services, or general equipment failures that may also include the need for re-shoots.
When required, Insurance Certificates will be issued for the protection of all parties concerned.
For our discerning (Corporate/Government/Military/etc) clients, image security is paramount. When required, imagery is secured offline, encrypted and can be transferred in person vice via secure digital link.
To minimize costs to clients, all imagery will be transferred via digital links unless otherwise requested. (Those reasons may include, but are not limited to, print or security requirements.) All digital imagery will be watermarked and of a reduced file size until purchases are made. At the time of purchase, the client will receive a private link to the purchased images, where the full-sized files can be downloaded to their chosen media. All links will be maintained for 30 days or until the client identifies that it is no longer required. Shareable links can be provided upon request and this will allow the client to provide others with that link to minimize the effort required to pass on those images. If a shareable link is requested and provided, the security of those images can no longer be guaranteed by JT. Foulds Photography as that link could reasonably be given to anyone. To minimize this possible security concern, a request can be made to issue private (non-shareable) links to more parties.
At no point will any RAW image files be transferred. They will remain the sole property of JT. Foulds Photography.
Booking fees are non-refundable retainers and will be due upon the signing of all shooting agreements. The "Booking Fee" is 50% of the amount agreed with the balance of the amount agreed due within 7 days after the day of the completed event/shoot.
Confirmation: A signed “Contract for Photography Services” and payment of the booking fee are necessary to confirm the stated services from the Photographer.
Our shooting schedule, style of working and experience are designed to achieve a great set of portrait/event/wedding/etc photos for the Clients, accomplished with good humour and enjoyed by all concerned. Both the Clients and the Photographers therefore agree that punctuality and cheerful cooperation are essential to producing outstanding photographic results. In cases where the event does not run on time (for example, extreme lateness by one of the Clients arriving to the shoot location) we cannot guarantee to take our normal set of photos...although in such circumstances we will do our absolute best to compensate/adapt.
