CREATIVE LICENSE POLICIES
Proofing gallery images are selected by the photographer based on lighting, composition, and expression. Not all images from the session will be included in the proofing gallery. The proofing gallery will contain all of the best images from the session. The client will choose their designated amount of images from the gallery which are then edited to the photographer’s standards. The client has the option to purchase additional images from their proofing gallery at a cost of $25-$30 each. The photographer will edit and deliver only those images chosen and paid for by the client. RAW or unedited images are not available for download or for purchase. Images are edited to remove minor blemishes, smooth the skin, correct colour and exposure, crop, and prepare for print and presentation. The photographer reserves the creative right to edit and release only those deemed creditable as professional quality and within the photographer’s artistic standards. Image standards are based on creative vision as well as technical standards (exposure, white balance, crop, etc) and not on personal appearance, the direction of subject’s gaze, facial expression or mood. The Client agrees and understands that the type of work provided will be of similar style and caliber to the images shown on Photography by Oksana (www.byoksana.ca) website. The Client agrees to allow Photography by Oksana complete creative control over the edits, the location of the session as well as any poses or lack thereof executed at the session. Additional edits post-delivery of the gallery may be considered at a rate of $30 per image/alteration with a minimum rate of one hour.
Photography by Oksana may end the session at their discretion according to her determination of having captured adequate images both in terms of quality and quantity.
The unedited Gallery will be delivered to the client within a week of the session date.
The client has 2 weeks before the expiration of their gallery to make image selections upon receiving their gallery.
Images will be completed within 4 weeks of submission of the selected images.
The Client agrees to relay the details of this contract to any and all subjects involved in the session.
