As the creator of your photographs, this studio, under the protection of copyright law, owns all rights (copyrights) to these works. This copyright applies to photography on, or offsite taken by Simon James Williams Photography.

As the copyright owner the studio has the exclusive rights to reproduce your photographs. Therefore it is illegal to copy or reproduce these photographs elsewhere without written permission from this studio. Violators may be sued for copyright infringement.

Your photographs are the result of our experience, creativity and professionalism. We earn our living by providing you with this quality product. Frequently, our right to earn this living is violated when our work is copied or reproduced through other sources. And, just as important, the quality of the finished product is diminished, as it is the reproduction of our work.

Your desire for the best quality product and service available brought you to a professional photography studio. By reproducing your photographs from the original material, our studio assures that this quality is reflected in the final prints. And because we retain your original files, we can order additional or replacement prints that will beautifully preserve your memories forever.

We appreciate your business and look forward to serving all your professional needs.

When booking me for a shoot either in the studio or for other work external to the studio costs are in a minimum of 4-hour blocks. For example, if the studio is booked for one session (morning, afternoon or evening) and the session runs over into another session, an additional full block is chargeable. If this is the case, I will try and fill it as much as possible by maybe using different techniques or lighting.

If we are only part way through an additional session, I will do my best to use the time constructively. This may not necessarily by shooting images, but could be technical advice on using the images. Or by being a bit more creative and shooting outside a brief.

Payment must be made in full before any post production is started.

We cannot accept cheques, but do accept bank transfer, cash or via PayPal (small surcharge will apply).

Prior to ordering, your pictures will be edited and post processed to look their best. This can take some time depending on the quantity and required amount of post processing involved. Ordering is made once a month – this is so we can order in photoshoot batches and provide a further saving to customers by not charging additional for postage costs.

Prints are ordered from Manchester photography labs, and canvases are ordered from Cardiff in Wales. We will not contact you until all orders are back in our possession and have been inspected for quality. Prints and canvases can take up to two weeks to arrive back once the order has been placed with them.

Once inspected, we will contact you to arrange either collection from the studio, or if you are within five miles from the studio, we can drop them off to you.

I am personally committed to your total satisfaction. And in the unlikely event that you have any issues or problems with your prints, I want to hear from you and have the chance to correct them.

I will take responsibility of the issue and ensure that any issues are corrected and reprinted to your satisfaction. In the unlikely event that I am unable to correct any issues you may have, I will provide a full refund on receipt of the images in question.

Images must be in original packaging and have all documentation. The return cost will be your responsibility as will any additional costs in returning the products to you.

Unfortunately, we cannot offer refunds on any digital downloads.]

If photoshoots whether commercial or personal are cancelled partway through, then you will be charged for the work completed. Copyright remains with Simon James Williams Photography.
