Terms and conditions


Where photography has been commissioned, the client and the photographer agree that copyright is retained by Mario Schwartz Photography unless otherwise agreed in writing.


A Licence to Use will be granted to the client and comes into effect from the date of payment of the relevant invoice. No use may be made of the Photographs before payment in full of the relevant invoice without the express permission of Mario Schwartz Photography. Any permission which may be given for prior use will automatically be revoked if full payment is not made by the due date.


If a fee has been quoted on the basis of completion of the commission, it is understood that the figure quoted is an estimate, and accordingly Mario Schwartz Photography reserves the right to charge for all work done, including incurred expenses, if for any reason, the work commissioned takes longer than the time originally anticipated at the date of the estimate.


Confirmation of booking, either verbal or written, confirms the client’s acceptance of these terms and conditions. Once the Client has made a booking for a specific time and date, Mario Schwartz Photography will not accept any other work from other clients for those times and dates. As a result, if a booking is subsequently cancelled or postponed, Mario Schwartz Photography reserves the right to charge the client a cancellation fee according to the schedule below.


A booking is considered firm as from the date of confirmation and accordingly Mario Schwartz Photography will, at his discretion, charge a fee for cancellation or postponement. This fee would normally be charged at the following rate: When a client cancels a booking within 7 days of any confirmed date, a fee of 50% of the booked time rate will be charged. When a client cancels photography within 2 days of any confirmed date, a fee of 100% of the booked time rate will be charged. In the event of the job being rescheduled 50% of this fee will be credited to the invoice when the assignment is completed.

Note: Any cancellation fee payable may include additional cancellation charges incurred or payable by Mario Schwartz Photography in respect of model fees, stylist charges, prop searches and purchase expenditure etc.
