ARTISTIC CONTROL

Mike Beltrametti photography reserves artistic control over the design and content of each photo shoot. We may, at our discretion, decline to create certain types or styles of photography. We reserve the right to refuse to produce images at some sizes or combinations of sizes if we believe such images would or could be detrimental to our reputation as a professional studio or as professional photographers. Clients should discuss their requirements with the studio prior to the photo shoot.

REFUSAL OF SERVICE

Mike Beltrametti photography reserves the right to refuse service if in our opinion the provision of service is likely to cause or has caused disruption to either staff members or the normal operation of business.

General Terms and Conditions

APPOINTMENT HOLDING FEE/ DEPOSIT

To ensure your commitment to the scheduled appointment a deposit of $50 will be required on the day of booking. This deposit will be used towards the products you choose to purchase after the photoshoot, provided that you have completed your appointment at the correctly scheduled time and date. Failure to attend or complete your scheduled appointment may result in the cancellation of any prize and the forfeiture of the deposit at the sole discretion of Mike Beltrametti photography management.

PURCHASING SESSION

All photoshoots include a follow up appointment to view and purchase your images. It is assumed that the documentation given to you at the time of leaving the photoshoot has been considered before you return for your viewing/purchasing session. This documentation contains information regarding our product range, prices and what will happen at your viewing/purchasing session. If, at the time of the viewing/ purchasing session you are unable to make a decision and require another appointment, the second viewing/purchasing session will attract a fee of $195.00 to cover our time and expenses. Once an order has been placed it is part of our process to immediately design, create and order your products. Refunds are not available where a purchase contract is in place, deposits or full payment have been made and a client changes their mind.

COLLECTION OF GOODS

Whilst we make every possible effort to contact you regarding collection of your goods we are limited in the amount of time we can hold them. Unless prior arrangement has been made for collection we will hold your products for a period of 6 months after which time they may be subject to disposal.

RETENTION OF IMAGES

Mike Beltrametti photography accepts no liability for loss of stored images due to circumstances beyond their control including human error and technical failure. If a purchase is completed at the viewing/purchasing session, your images will be stored indefinitely. Alternatively, if no purchase is completed, images are stored for a period of seven (7) days to facilitate a change of mind. All RAW images used to generate the image presented at the viewing/purchasing session are destroyed upon completion of a sale. If you are using our payment plan option and we are storing your images, all care is taken to ensure that they will be available for the creation of your products. If a situation arises where funds have been paid to Mike Beltrametti photography and the original images are no longer available due to the aforementioned or some other circumstance, the client will be eligible to have another photo session in order to replace the original images and products of equal or greater value will then be created from these new images. Refunds are not available where a purchase contract is in place, deposits have been made and a client changes their mind.
