Images and Files
Images and files are individually assessed and checked, they are provided on CD or DVD in JPEG (lossless compression) file format. The files can be read by PC and/or MAC systems. Please advise if you require files other than JPEG. Please note that exact specifications are required prior to saving digital files to CD or DVD.
I offer at no extra charge (space permitting on the CD/DVD), a form of saving the files, so that they can be selected via your Internet Browser – called Web Gallery. Images can be easily viewed through this system, although the colour management does differ slightly – they look less saturated, due to the web using fewer colours. This is only intended for viewing purposes. The original files are also available on the same CD/DVD.
Digital capture images are provided in Photoshop RGB file size @ 300dpi in ADOBE1998 Colourspace/Profile, (saved as JPEG or TIFF – Please specify ) this is suitable for most requirements as specified within your brief, but the responsibility for the choice of image capture remains with the client.

Unless otherwise agreed the Client will be charged 50% of the total fee if the postponement is due to weather conditions.
If the client cancels, for whatever reason, with less than twenty-four hours notice, or we are unable to shoot and complete the clients original brief, due to the client or subject’s lack of co-operation, the full fee (photographic and assistant) will apply.
