TERMS AND CONDITIONS
1. A non-refundable deposit of one third of the total value will be invoiced after the first sitting. For portraits of a value below £10,000, the remainder will be invoiced upon completion. For portraits over the value of £10,000, the remainder may be invoiced in two further stages, another third half way, and the final third upon completion.
2. All invoices are to be paid within 7 days of receipt unless otherwise negotiated with the artist.
3. All photographs and sketches taken and completed during sittings remain the property of the artist.

5. The artist retains copyright ownership and the right to include the portrait image in his portfolio, website, printed marketing material and on social media. However, anonymity will be maintained should it be requested by the Client and/or the Sitter(s). The artist will also seek parental approval in cases where the portrait is of a person(s) under the age of 16.
6. If the portrait is to be completed without sittings and instead, from an image provided by the Client, the Client agrees that it is their responsibility to make the necessary checks that the image is copyright free and/or that the Client has permission to use and supply the image to the artist. The artist accepts no liability for any copyright issues that may arise, liability lies with the Client.
7. Should the opportunity arise for the completed portrait to be included in an exhibition, the artist will contact the Client to seek permission. If agreed, the artist will arrange and cover any necessary transportation and insurance for the duration of the loan.
The following services are optional extras, incur additional costs and will be invoiced separately after completion.
