Terms & Conditions

Jewellery and Watch Photography

Our day rates for Jewellery and Watch photography provides you with 50 finished product photographs. Occassionally we are able to take a few more, these will be charged at our normal rate of £15.00/£17.00 per image.

Jewellery and Watch Photography Payments – Using Our Portable Studio

We require a non-refundable £250.00 deposit at the time of booking. This allows us to allocate the time to photograph your items on your selected date and location, arrange our flights and accommodation and schedule studio time in to complete the editing upon our return to our studio. This amount will of course be deducted off your final bill. If in the event we are not able to complete the booking – due to cancelled flights, illness etc we will work with you to rearrange another date or fully refund your deposit.

Image Formats

Your images will be sent to you in jpeg format, if you would like your images sent as tiff or png please advise at the time of booking. If you require transparent background png files this may incur an additional charge for the cut out, please talk to Mark when making your booking.

Adding Your Brand

If you would like to have your brand logo added to your photography, please advise when booking and provide us with a png logo.

Our Instagram

A huge percentage of our new clients come to us via our Instagram feed, therefore we reserve the right to showcase our work on our Instagram. If working with new collections we will not publicise prior to launch date. We are more than happy to discuss entering into a non-disclosure agreement (NDA) if required - please discuss this at time of booking.

Clean Watches and Jewellery

Please ensure any jewellery or watches are clean and ready for photography. In the event of a piece being unsuitable for photography we may need to allocate time and a cleaning charge or will be unable to photograph it. We understand pre owned & vintage watches and antique jewellery will show signs of condition and wear but new watches and jewellery must be clean and dust free.

Retouching

We aim to send your retouched images to you within 48 hours, this of course is dependent on amount, current scheduling and any holidays or studio closures.

We can invoice monthly or per project. Monthly invoicing is only available for repeat clients, this is to ensure you are happy with our first retouching project.

We are happy to retouch a sample image for you free of charge so you can see the service we offer and what we can do for your images – please note this is just one free image. Any more will be charged at our normal rate.

With batches of new jewellery and watch retouching, we will send you a sample/s to view and make any changes that you need (for example, colours, watch strap amendment etc), we will then ask you to sign off on this before we complete the remaining images. We offer a very reasonable rate for our retouching so after this if you would like any further changes or amendments made to this batch we will charge at our hourly rate.

Invoice Payments

We do our very best to complete our projects as quickly as we can and would appreciate fast payment in return. Unless otherwise stated we require payment to be made in GBP(£). We ask that invoices are paid within 7 days either via bank transfer or PayPal, you will find the payments details on your invoice. If you are paying by PayPal please make payments using the 'friends and family' option to avoid any additional charges. We do not watermark your new photography, this allows you to use these images as quickly as possible. However, we securely data tag all of our photography to prevent misuse and copyright protection in the event payment is not received.

Website Payments

We ask for 50% to be paid upfront, this allows us to get you scheduled in and allocate the required time to start and complete your site. You will be shown the completed site on a test domain, any revisions can be made, then the remaining 50% is to be paid and once received the website will be transferred onto your domain.
