Securing photographic services assumes acceptance of these terms and conditions.
At booking, a $200 non-refundable retainer will be paid to hold the session time and date for each date and/or location. The retainer will be applied to the session fee. The balance is due on or before the day of the shoot via credit card or corporate check, unless other arrangements have been made in advance.
Cancellation of Session
Upon payment of retainer, Headshots by Pamela shall reserve the date and time agreed upon, and will not make any other reservations or accept any other clients for said date and time. For this reason, in the event that client cancels the session for any reason, all monies received shall be retained by Headshots by Pamela in order to offset its loss of business.
If the session is rescheduled at least 72 hours before the session time there will be no extra charge. If the session is rescheduled within 72 hours of the session time, Headshots by Pamela will retain the monies paid and a new $200 non-refundable retainer will be required to reschedule.
If the photographer is asked to perform a task on-site outside of the scope of the work initially agreed upon, they will provide the service if it is possible. The client will be invoiced for the additional service. The amount will be due on the date of service unless other arrangements are made.
