The balance must be paid no later than the day of the event.
In case of late payment no photograph will be transmitted until the service has been paid in full.
5 Number of photos
Following the photo shoot or a report, the photographer selects the best shots that will be available on a private gallery that also serves as an online store. The number of photos may be lower or higher than expected due to several factors: number of people, brightness, weather conditions, cooperation of people photographed, environment …
6 Retouching and Photographic Style
The Photographer reserves the right to make himself the selection and retouching of the photos. But he refuses a number of aesthetic retouching such as teeth whitening, the refinement of the silhouette. No guarantee of exact similarity with previous sessions and reports can be given. The Photographer refuses requests for colorimetry such as “sepia” or “partial desaturation”. Most of the shots are delivered in color but some may be in black and white, depending on the photographer’s artistic tastes and preferences.

(Article L111-3 of the Intellectual Property Code). The photographs delivered are only used for dissemination within the family circle understood in the broad sense.
No publications will be able to intervene on paper (magazine, press, …) or virtual (website for commercial use, assignment of rights to third parties) without the agreement of the Photographer previously consulted.
