Hello! My name is Eric and I am a freelance photographer. I enjoy shooting portraits, fashion content, and lifestyle photography. If you're interested, contact me below.
If you do decide to book me for a shoot. Here's a written agreement of what is expected for both parties.
In the event that the Client requests to reschedule a photographic session with more than 7 days notice the deposit will be applied to a rescheduled session. Reschedules must be within the same calendar year. Any client that is late arriving to the session will have the amount of time late deducted from the time allotted for the shoot. Arriving 15 minutes is recommenced to chat with the photographer and refresh expectations as well as chat about ideas for the shoot. Clients shall not be compensated for the time deducted from the session due to late arrival by the client.
All photographic materials, including but not limited to proofs and previews, shall be the exclusive property of the Photographer. No products, including digital files, will be released until the agreed upon amount is paid in full per the payment agreement.
The photographer shall make gallery proofs available through an online gallery proofing website. These proofs shall be available to the client within the agreed upon time. After the online gallery is delivered it will be open for 2 weeks. Photographer is not responsible for lost images once given to the client.
The Photographer retains the right of discretion in selecting the photographic materials released to the Client. The Client shall receive a gallery of a minimum of 5 photographs to select from and shall not receive any photographic materials not presented to the Client. Only edited images will be delivered to the client. No unedited images will be delivered to the client. The photographer has the right to decline any requests by the client to edit any specifically requested images that the photographer deems not up to par with the rest of the work. The photographer has the right to decline any "extreme" editing request such as: but not limited to background changes, added effects, and body modification. The photographer also retains the right to make adjustments to the photographs in post-processing as the Photographer deems within their creative control.
Satisfaction & Accuracy
The client agrees that the work delivered will be of a similar style and caliber to those photographs on the website (shuttr), and that the photographer will have complete creative control during the photographs and in post-processing. The images will be delivered in JPEG format with a mix of color and black and white images, deemed appropriate by the photographer. No re-editing will be done after the final edited copies are presented to the client.
Copyright and Reproduction
The Photographer shall retain copyright ownership of all works created in the course of this contract, including but not limited to all images in their original and processed formats. It is understood that any duplication or alteration of original images is strictly prohibited without the written permission of the photographer. Alterations include but are not limited to, application of filters, cropping, or modifications of any kind. If any of these actions are preformed the photographer reserves the right to contact you and request the photo(s) be removed as they would no longer be accurate representations of the photographers work. The Photographer does provide the client permission to resize photographs for Internet-based usage.
The client shall only use the photographic prints, including digital files, in accordance with the permissions within this contract. The client's prints are for personal use only and shall not be submitted to contests or reproduced for commercial use without written approval by the photographer. If the photographer provides a digital file print release, the client must act in accordance with the release.
The client may share web/blog post links and social media albums through the use of the share functions and direct links. When uploading to a Facebook or Instagram social media the client shall "tag" the photographers business in the album or photo of the uploaded file.
Retention of Delivered Files
Once the JPEG files are delivered to the client, it is the client's sole responsibility to protect and retain their images for the future. It is highly recommended that the digital files be duplicated and stored (technology can be fickle; one of the best ways to ensure the client's images will last for generations is for the clients to print them). The photographer only guarantees that the photographs will be available for up to three weeks from the delivery of the online gallery.
