No one likes legal stuff.  But the idea is everyone knows where they stand. So here we go:

Who's who

The "Videogrpapher” - Dasha Hugg 

The "Client" - you, the person contracting for my photographic services

These terms & conditions cannot be varied in any way by the Client unless such variations are expressly agreed by the Videographer in writing.

1. Copyright:

The Copyright Designs and Patents Acts 1988 apply:  copyright of all images is assigned to and remains the sole right of the Videographers.

2. Display:

The Client will allow the Videographer to use or display any videos under this contract however she (the Videographer) wishes in her absolute discretion, including but not limited to the promotion of her business in advertising, brochures, magazine articles, websites, sample albums etc. The Videographer need not seek any consent from the Client before doing so.  By entering into this contract the Client waives the right to object to the Videographer using the videos as outlined above.  If the Client wishes the videos to remain private, this must be communicated to the Videographer before the contract is entered into (and before the videosession) and all prices will be charged and paid at double rates.

3. License, Coverage and Reproduction:

Videos s taken during the course of the event (and during editing thereafter) will be at the discretion of the Videographer although every effort will be made to comply with the Client's requirements (provided they are reasonable, such to be within the entire discretion of the Videographer).

The Videographer shall be granted artistic license in relation to the poses, the locations used and editing of videos. The Videographer's judgement regarding these matters shall be deemed correct.  The Videographer shall endeavour to photograph as requested.

Should a venue be chosen by the Client and the Videographer not be permitted to shoot as intended or limited in some way, where such limitation is not the Videographer's fault, the Videographer will not be responsible for time lost finding an alternative location or the cost of seeking permission.

Due to a variety of lighting conditions and the limitations of digital sensors, some colours may alter throughout a set of videos.

Although all equipment is checked regularly and reasonable steps are taken to ensure backup equipment is available, the Videographer will not be responsible for videos that are not produced due to technical failure.

4. Payments:

Payment in full of the full balance will be due on the day of the shoot.

5. Force Majeure:

In the event of cancellation by the Videographer, or in the very unlikely event of video failure, liability shall be limited to a full refund of any fees paid.

6 Ownership:

All digital negatives (computer files) remain the property of the Videographer. On occasion, the Videographer may supply a copy of the edited digital negatives to the Client for his/her own non-commercial use.

7. Cancellation Fees:


8.  Personal Accident:

Any directions issued to the Client during the videoshoot are deemed to be at the Client's risk. The Videographer shall not be held responsible for any personal accidents or loss caused to or suffered by the Client during the videoshoot.
