The entire copyright in the pictures is retained by F&M MEDIA at all times throughout the world.
A security deposit of £50 is due from everyone, irrespective of the package to secure your session/photographer in their diary.
Pre-shoot: Your session is held by us until 7PM the day before your shoot - it is then released and F&M MEDIA photographers are free to fill this session time with other activities/clients. You may, however, get in touch to reschedule your session should you still wish to receive it at some point. It is the artist' responsibility to be on time with payments. Failure to pay the initial deposit of £50 to secure your session - by 7PM (END OF DAILY SHIFT) LATEST the day before you shoot - will result in automatic cancellation and your slot will re-open. There need not be any official dialogue about this via email/phone call between client/photographer regarding this - failure to pay a deposit will be an automatic rejection of allocated slot time and release your photographers time in their diary.
