Payment

Upon payment of the Retainer, Photographer will reserve the time and date agreed upon by the parties (“Session Date”). The Retainer will go towards the balance of Client's session fee. Upon completion of the Session, Client shall pay Photographer in full the remaining balance of the session fee. The session fee covers the time and talent of Photographer, retouching and creative editing of images, as determined by Photographer, and the delivery of a set number of digital images.  Applicable sales tax will be added to all products and services.  Orders will not be processed, and Photographer will not deliver any Photographic Material to Client, until payment in full is received. The charges in this agreement are based on the Photographer’s Standard Price List. This price list is adjusted periodically, and future orders shall be charged at the prices in effect at the time when the order is placed. For a photo session on location greater than 75 miles from Cheyenne, Wyoming, there will be a travel charge of $0.50/mile.  If there are any costs/fees associated with the location Client has chosen for the Session, Client will be responsible for those fees. Photographer will not guarantee or arrange payment on any location. There are no fees associated with a model call session and the client will be compensated for their time with 5 high resolution JPEG digital files.
