1. Definitions

For the purpose of this agreement, “the photographer” refers to Selina Coleman of Nesta Property Marketing Limited,  “the Agency” or “the client” shall, where the context so admits, include their respective assignees, sub-licensees and successors in title. In cases where the photographer’s client is a direct client (i.e.: with no agency or intermediary), all references in this agreement to both “the Agency” and “the client” shall be interpreted as reference to the photographer’s client. “Photographs” means all photographic material  furnished by the photographer, whether transparencies, negatives, prints, or any other type of physical or electronic format.

2 . Copyright

The entire copyright of the photographs is retained by Nesta Property Marketing Limited at all times throughout the world.

3. Ownership of Materials

Photographs remain the property of Nesta Property Marketing Limited. When the Licence to Use the material has expired, the physical photographs must be returned to the photographer in good condition within 30 days. There must be no further use of any image previously supplied in a digital or electronic format.

4. Use

The Licence to Use comes into effect from the date of payment of the relevant invoice(s). No use may be made of the Photographs before payment in full of the relevant invoice(s) without the express permission of Nesta Property Marketing Limited. Any permission which may be given for prior use will automatically be revoked if full payment is not made by the due date or if the Agency is put into receivership or liquidation. The Licence only applies to the Agency of Client and product as stated on the front of the Licence Usage form and its benefit shall not be assigned to any third party without the express permission of Nesta Property Marketing Limited. Accordingly, even where any form of ‘all media’ Licence is granted, the permission of Nesta Property Marketing Limited must be obrained before any use of the Photographs for other purposes, eg: use in relation to another product or sublicencing through a photo library. Permission to use the Photographs for purposes outside the terms of the Licence will normally be granted upon payment of a further fee, which must be mutually agreed (and paid in full) before such further use. Unless otherwise agreed in writing, all further Licences in respect of the Photographs will be subject to these terms and conditions.

5. Exclusivity

The Agency or Client will be authorised to publish the Photographs to the exclusion of all other persons including the Photographer. However, the Photographer retains the right in all cases to use the Photographs in any manner at any time and in any part of the world for the purposes of advertising or otherwise promoting his/her work. After the exclusivity period indicated in the Licence to Use the Photographer shall be entitled to use the Photographs for any purposes.

6. Client Confidentiality

The Photographer will keep confidential and will not disclose to any third parties or make use of material or information communicated to him/her in confidence for the purposes of photography, save as may be reasonably necessary to enable the Photographer to carry out his/ her obligation in relation to the commission.

7. Indemnity

The Photographer agrees to indemnify the Agency or Client against all expenses, damages, claims and legal costs arising out of any failure by the Photographer to obtain any clearances for which he/she was responsible in respect of third party copyright works, trade marks, designs or other intellectual property. The Photographer shall only be responsible for obtaining such clearances if this has been expressly agreed before the shoot. In all other cases the Agency shall be responsible for obtaining such clearances and will indemnify the Photographer against all expenses, damages, claims and legal costs arising out of any failure to obtain such clearances.

8. Payment

Payment by the Agency of Client will be expected for the commissioned work within 7 days net of the relevant invoice. If the invoice is not paid, in full within 7 days,  The Photographer reserves the right to charge interest at the rate prescribed by the Late Payment of Commercial Debt (Interest) Act 1998 from the date payment was due until the date payment is made.

9. Expenses

Where extra expenses or time are incurred by the Photographer as a result of alterations to the original brief by the Agency or the Client, or otherwise at their request, the Agency or Client shall give approval to and be liable to pay such extra expenses or fees at the Photographer’s normal rate to the Photographer in addition to the expenses having been agreed or estimated in the original quote.

10. Rejection

Unless a rejection fee has been agreed in advance, there is no right to reject on the basis of style,  composition and colour rendering.

11. Cancellation and Postponement

A booking is considered firm from the date of confirmation and accordingly the Photographer will, at his/her discretion, charge a fee for cancellation or postponement, if cancellation or postponement was made 24 hour or less before the agreed appointment date and time. Adverse weather conditions alone are the only acceptable reason for cancellation or postponement without the Agency or Client incurring a fee.

12. Right to Credit

If the licence is marked “Right to Credit” the Photographer’s name will be printed on or in reasonable proximity to all published reproductions of the Photograph(s). By affirming this “Right to Credit” the Photographer also asserts his/her statutory right to be identified in the circumstances set out in Sections 77-79 of the Copyright, Designs and Patents Act 1988 or any amendment or re-enactment thereof.

13. Electronic Storage

Save for the purposes of reproduction for the licenced use(s), the Photographs may not be stored in any electronic medium without the written permission of the Photographer. Manipulation of the image or use of only a portion of the image may only take place with the permission of the photographer.

14. Applicable Law

This agreement shall be governed by the laws of England and Wales.

15. Variation

These Terms and Conditions shall not be varied except by agreement in writing.
