By using the Website you are fully accepting the terms, conditions and disclaimers contained in this notice. If you do not accept these Terms & Conditions you must immediately stop using the Website.
All the images on this website are the copyright of Simon J. Newbury Photography. They may not be used, copied or reproduced in any way without prior written consent. The Copyright, Design and Patents Act, 1988 assigns the copyright of photographs to The Photographer(s). It is therefore contrary to the Act, and illegal, to copy photographs, or allow to be copied, by any means photographic or otherwise, by any person or machine other than by The Photographer(s) or their appointed agents.
Simon J. Newbury Photography own and retain the copyright to all the images we make, unless a full release is negotiated at the time of booking.
The images of Simon J. Newbury Photography are protected by law and by purchasing the image as a print or digital file you are purchasing the right to the photo, not the copyright and therefore have no rights to reproduce the photo in or on any medium unless a licence is agreed and provided. This includes (but is not restricted to) scanning, copying, republishing, advertising, uploading, transmitting or displaying the image. Should you wish to make any re-use of the image in any way then prior written permission must be obtained from Simon J. Newbury Photography.
No addition to, deletion from or alteration to or adaptation of a picture may be made without the written permission of Simon J. Newbury Photography.
The client shall be responsible for obtaining clearances in respect of third party copyright works, trade marks, designs or other intellectual property and will indemnify the Photographer against all expenses, damages, claims and legal costs arising out of any failure to obtain such clearances.
Licence To Use
Images/ prints are supplied subject to the ‘Licence To Use’ contract. This licence stipulates the permitted use of the images within the contract. The Client licence clearly indicates any
restrictions on the use of images (agreed use), the territories of use and any timescale for use. Any further or extended use is subject to further fees, payable prior to use in accordance with the Payments conditions contained within these Terms & Conditions.
Many printed images have to be cropped as our camera’s native ratio is 3:2. An 8×6 (3:4 ratio) print will lose 1 inch from the edges, and a 10×8 (5:4 ratio) would lose 2 inches from the side for example. We therefore shoot with this in mind, and prints will be cropped as we feel is the best. Should you request a specific crop then please be aware that we will crop to that request meaning other parts of the image may be lost in order to accommodate this. Where a specific request has been made then these can’t be returned. If we feel that the request will detract from the image then we will contact the Client direct. If you wish us to supply a print proof prior to printing then a fee of £5 will be payable.
If you are planning on having prints framed then we must be informed in advance if a large mounting bleed is required. Most mounts have a 1mm overlap on all sides. For mounts with a larger overlap please inform us in advance to avoid excessive cropping at the framing stage. We would recommend contacting your framing company prior to the print order to find out how much of the image will be lost in mounting so images can be edited accordingly where possible.
Wedding Clients – a non-refundable booking fee of 10% (paid by cash or cheque) along with a completed contract will confirm your booking. Payment for the photographic coverage and album is payable in full four weeks prior to the contracted date. All additional goods are payable on ordering.

A fee of £10 will be made for each account reminder, duplicate invoice, or any other paperwork, correspondence or phone calls involved with the pursual of a debt. This fee is non-refundable, and represents the additional time spent pursuing overdue invoices.

Owing to photochromatic anomalies caused by a combination of certain dyes and materials, especially in man-made fibres, it is sometimes impossible to record on camera the exact colour of materials as perceived by the human eye. When processing images we will endeavour to achieve a pleasing overall colour balance based on natural flesh tones.
It is understood that some colours may not remain consistent throughout a set of photographs owing to variations in lighting conditions. It is also understood that all photographic printing is undertaken within the technical limitations of the process and that colour may not be identical over the whole range within a subject. The colour balance of prints made at different times or in varying sizes may also be variable.
Due to the limitations of computer monitors it is understood that images may appear differently according to the specification of each monitor and that prints will not match images rendered on any particular computer monitor.
Where images are made available for use on a DVD player reasonable steps are taken to ensure compatibility, but DVD discs may not play on all DVD players, particularly older models.
We use only quality branded CDs and DVDs, ensuring each is checked before dispatch, but it remains the responsibility of the clients to check discs for in-transit damage. We cannot be held responsible for damage to equipment resulting from defective media.
All print and presentation sizes quoted are approximate and subject to the discretion of the photographers.
Simon J. Newbury Photography will keep confidential and will not disclose to any third parties or make use of material or information communicated to us in confidence for the purposes of the photography, save as may be reasonably necessary to enable the us to carry out our obligations in relation to the commission.
Images placed in password protected galleries within the website are not available to the general public in the normal course of events. However it may not always be possible to prevent determined persons from accessing these galleries.
There is no right to reject the Photographs on the basis of style or composition nor to reject the Photographs on the basis of any alleged discrepancy between the colours of the photographic image and the actual colours of the subject matter of the Photographs if any such discrepancy arises by virtue of technical deficiencies in the film or digital processes. All digital files supplied are for visual guidance only. It is the Clients responsibility to prepare and if necessary modify any digitally supplied Photographs to an acceptably suitable standard of colour accuracy and image quality, to which they will subsequently faithfully and accurately record when printed or used in any form of electronic presentation.
