Terms and Conditions; 


  • If inclement weather or other adverse conditions prevent the photo shoot from taking place, we will simply rearrange for another date.


  • I reserve the right to use one or a selection of images from your shoot for social media, advertising, display, publication or to offer for sale via stock agencies. Any image containing a person will not be offered and will need written consent from that individual before being used. This clause is in line with a lot of top photographers in and around the North as well as the UK and the Reb of Ireland, it also allows me to keep my prices low - meaning you get fantastic value for your money. 


  •  Waiver of liability: the client expressly releases the photographer, his employees, and agents from all claims, damages, and liabilities that may result from accidents or incidents that occur during the photo session. This waiver of liability includes the waiver of any claim that may be a result of negligence.


  • I retain copyright for all images taken on any photo shoot, except for pre-agreed commercial shoots. Images are sold on a personal use license, this includes those on CD or DVD.

  • I have no problem with you uploading your images to Facebook, Instagram, Google+, Twitter and/or personal websites, however before doing so, please let me know and I will send ‘website ready images’ this prevents anyone stealing them to sell on or promote themselves. Where possible you must also include a small Liberty Productions watermark. If you cannot include the watermark (i.e. want to crop the photograph for a cover photograph or profile photograph) please include in a comment a simple copyright notice - stating that I am the photographer. So for example - Image Copyright - Johann van Tonder, Liberty Productions.  It is against my terms and conditions that you upload any high-resolution file to the internet, other than for the purposes of ordering prints etc or to make gifts for yourself.
