Terms and Conditions
Welcome to the slightly less exciting section of the website. Even though it may not get your blood pumping, it is very important that I share with you the following information and ensure there is an agreement between us about the photographs that will be produced and how I will store and use any data that I collect.
First of all, thank you so much for visiting my website and showing interest in booking a photoshoot with me. I love getting to know families and couples and producing images for you that show your unique relationships and personalities. I also love editing the photos and spend hours making sure they are just right. Ultimately, I want you to have photos that will help you to treasure the memories because life, after all, is about making memories.
If you look on the 'Prices and Booking' page on this website, you will be able to read about exactly what you will receive if you book me to photograph a family photoshoot, a wedding, an event etc. If there are any questions, I am always willing to answer them.
It is understood that the photographer, Anna McGrath, owns and retains the copyright to all images produced. Upon receipt of the final payment and delivery of images, the client is granted a licence to use the digital images for their own non-commercial purposes such as printing, electronic messaging, exchanging with friends and relatives and displaying on the internet. However, the images may not be altered or edited in any way.
Capture, Delivery, Post Production and Editing
The photographer is not liable to deliver every image taken at the session. The determination of the images delivered to the client is left to the discretion of the photographer. The final post-production and editing styles, effects and the overall look of the images are based on the photographer's personal style and the available lighting.
Images from family photoshoots, newborn sessions, pet portraits and most events will be sent to clients digitally. A USB stick will be presented for weddings and large events where there may be several hundred images. Upon receipt of the digital photos, the client accepts all responsibility for archiving and protecting the photographs. Digital images will be provided in JPG format. I will retain digital files of your photographs for 7 years (subject to any unexpected loss of data). Any downloadable files are provided to users at their own risk.
Data Collection and Use
I will collect from you the following information:
Your surname and the first names of family members involved in the family shoot
Your address if a USB stick is to be provided or if the photoshoot is taking place at your home
Your email address for communication and to send downloadable links to photographs and slideshows
Photographs that identify you, your family members and other participants
Your names will be kept in my mobile phone address book and files of your photographs will be labelled with your family name. Images posted on social media will not have a full name written alongside them.
Email addresses, home addresses and phone numbers will be used for the sole purpose of sending you images and to make any contact which is necessary in order for me to respond to, or implement, any requests.
I will not pass your details on to any third parties and will not provide you with any information about goods, services or events if you choose to opt out of these on your contract.
The photographs will be stored on a hard drive which remains locked up when not in use. These photographs will be kept for 7 years and you can request images to be re-sent at any point in those 7 years should you wish.
The main purpose of this photoshoot is to provide you with images of your family, friends and loved ones which you can enjoy for years to come. However, I will be using images on my website, Facebook and Instagram pages for the purposes of marketing and work sharing. If, for any reason, you cannot allow me to share the images in this way, there is an option to opt out when you sign the contract that outlines all the above information.
Thank you for reading to the end.
I can't wait to meet you and look at you through my camera lens!
