terms & conditions
ON ARRIVAL AT MY STUDIO YOU WILL BE ASKED TO SIGN A MODEL RELEASE FORM WHICH CONTAINS A BOX TO TICK TO SAY THAT YOU HAVE READ THESE TERMS & CONDITIONS
your headshot shoot
My normal style is quite modern and in landscape format, cropped in tight. Look at the examples in the ‘headshot’ section of my portfolio so you can see what I mean. I can change to a more classic style (i.e. shot further back with a full head in view) if you would rather. It is your responsibility to be clear about this at the beginning of the shoot.
We will constantly be reviewing the shots on the computer and I will be coaching you how to look good in front of the camera.
Part of my service is to edit the session with you as we go. I will shoot a considerable number of images and together we shortlist your favorites. You will finish with a gallery of your approved images to choose from which I will send to you watermarked via Dropbox or a WeTransfer e-mail. These are for viewing and choosing only and remain the property of Teresa Walton Photography.
I will not release what I deem to be substandard images and therefore not all images taken will be available for your final viewing. No raw files are EVER given.
I would recommend that you don’t have an urgent appointment directly after our session, so at my discretion, if we needed to shoot one more look or review your images further, we have the flexibility to do so.
If we go over time I will ask you if you wish to continue. I charge £150 per hour for extra time
On arrival at my studio, you will be asked to sign a model release form. This is to protect both of us. It states that all images taken are licenced to Teresa Walton Headshot Photography, and may be used for promotion and marketing purposes. Please note that Teresa Walton Headshot Photography retains the entire copyright of the images.
I also give you the right to use them for personal/ non-commercial purposes. The right to reproduce the images for personal/ non-commercial purposes is granted by way of a personal license to you and may not be assigned to third parties.
You must use all reasonable efforts to ensure that newspapers, magazines, and editorials will print the name Teresa Walton Headshot Photography on or in close proximity to all published reproductions of the photographs.

storage of data
It is necessary for me to store the personal data that you provide me with in order to fulfill our contract. By signing the model release form you are giving me your consent.
You are able to withdraw your consent at any time but I will continue to retain your images as these are my property as set out in the model release section above.
Should you withdraw consent before I have finished processing your images, I will be unable to fulfill our contract.
what you will get
I ask for you to choose your images for retouching within a week of your photo shoot. My style of retouching is that ‘less is more’. I don’t make major adjustments but you will look like ‘you’ at your very best.
I will deliver your images via email with Dropbox or WeTransfer, they will be colour corrected and ready in three sizes each:
- ready for printing
- use on the internet – 1200 pixels longest edge
- and for your LinkedIn profile – 400 pixels longest edge
I will ask that you download and save them in a safe place on your computer.
There is a £25 charge to resend them.
I recommend Visualise for excellent prints. They are able to add captions to your images with names and contact details, along with anything else you require.Use the code PR10% for 10% discount when ordering online.
In order to confirm your appointment, the shoot fee (plus the entire cost of hair and make-up if applicable) is to be paid at the time of booking by bank transfer. For the avoidance of doubt, no images will be released until full payment has been received.
preparation for your shoot
- If you are visiting my studio please turn up punctually for your appointment. Leave plenty of time to find me and cover travel delays. Any delay may reduce the time of your session. If the full shoot is still required I may need to charge an additional hourly rate of £150.
- If you do happen to be early, there are places to relax within a short walk from my studio. Details of these are on my headshot information sheet.
- It is essential that you think carefully about clothing. It is important that your garments are clean and crease free as I don’t spend time retouching them. Please read the headshot information sheet which I will send you upon confirmation of your booking for more details on what to wear.
Please be respectful and courteous at all times. If I feel a client’s behaviour is rude or inappropriate I reserve the right to end the session without a refund and would not release any pictures taken.
cancellation & rescheduling
If for any reason you need to cancel or change a scheduled session, I require 72 hours notice by email (proof of sending will be required), otherwise, you will forfeit 50% of your fee, and any other previously agreed expense I may have incurred e.g. makeup and hair. If I am able to fill your slot with another client within the 72 hour period, I will credit your deposit towards your rescheduled session.
Teresa Walton Headshot Photography reserves the right to rearrange, cancel or postpone a session. In such circumstances, the deposit is fully repayable.
money back guarantee
If you don’t like what you see on the computer during our session you are invited to tell me and I will refund your fee. I clearly hope this won’t happen but I want to let you know that this is an option for you. However, you must advise me of this before leaving the studio otherwise the offer will not apply.
Any images that we have taken will then not be available to you as I will delete them from my files.
This offer does not apply to the cost of hair or make-up.
If you are the recipient of one of my gift vouchers please note that this is non-transferable and must be used within 3 months of the date of purchase.Once your session is booked my cancellation policy remains the same, except in the case of less than 72 hour’s notice you will forfeit the full value of the voucher and it will be nullified.
liability & indemnity
Whilst Teresa Walton Headshots takes all reasonable care in performing our agreement and achieving a result we are both happy with, I am, to the extent permissible by law, not liable for any loss or damage suffered by you or a third party arising from my work or any reproduction of the images by you.
