Terms & Conditions

Sitting fee

A sitting fee is payable at the time of booking, appropriate to the portrait package you choose, to secure your photo session. This can be paid by cheque, cash, or bank transfer.

Cancellation and re-booking

The sitting fee is non-refundable in the event that you cancel your booking less than 48 hours before your session. If you have booked an outdoor shoot and prevailing weather conditions mean that the shoot cannot take place (for example because the chosen location is unsafe or inaccessible), the photographer may suggest an alternative location, or re-book your shoot for the earliest mutually convenient date. In the event that the photographer has to cancel your shoot due to other circumstances outside his control, such as illness, every effort will be made to reschedule the shoot, but you will be given the option to cancel your session, in which case the sitting fee will be refunded, Maurice Thomas Photography will have no further liability in respect of this agreement.
