About me ...
Terms and Conditions
All the best images from your session will be retained for an indefinite period afterwards. This is so you can order further copies in any of our available formats at some time in the future, and so that they can be used in future promotional material (see the Privacy section below).
Please note that for portraiture work we do not release digital format images. For portfolio and commercial work JPG format images (or any preferred format) will be issued after any modification work that may be needed. All images will be stamped with 'LindaPellingPhotography' or our website name unless otherwise arranged prior to the work being carried out. For weddings, JPG format images (or any other preferred format) may be separately purchased.
Linda will happily do photographic sessions with anyone of any age. For glamour work, however, you MUST be 18 years of age or older. If you are fortunate to look young, please do not be offended when you are asked for proof of age, and when this identification is photocopied for our records (see the Privacy section below). In any event, if you are young, we will insist a parent or guardian be present during the session.
We do not charge VAT. We strive to stay below the VAT threshold so we can keep our prices competitive. However, it may be that during a financial year we will have to register for VAT. In such a case, all prices quoted before VAT registration will be honoured at the original price (we will pay the VAT) for a period of three months from the date of the original quote. This will not apply to quotes given for weddings as bookings are often taken more than three months before the event. Any price quoted for a wedding will remain valid until the wedding takes place as originally arranged.
Please note it is our policy not to release any images in any format until all have been paid for in full, with the exception of samples that may be emailed for approval before publishing. Emailed images will be reduced in size and resolution.
From time to time we may be asked to undertake work that involves travel. In such cases, reasonable expenses will be charged for travel above 50 miles of Chester, and overnight accommodation and sundries if required. In any event, this will be agreed with the customer before the work is carried out.
We prefer that all images in all formats are collected at a convenient time after they are ready. If you prefer them to be posted to you, then they will be sent in most cases by recorded delivery to ensure they are collected. Postage costs are chargeable at the applicable rate at the time of posting and will be added to the final invoice. In accordance with the above section on Pricing, all invoices must be settled in full before delivery.
All images taken by Linda Pelling Photography will be treated in strict confidence and will not be displayed to any other party other than those involved in the images except for purposes of demonstration to prospective customers in private at our studio address. If you would prefer your images not to be shown for demonstration purposes, please let us know. In any event, those images considered sensitive (such as boudoir, glamour and minors) will be regarded as private.
Any photocopied records we hold will be treated as strictly private and will not be displayed to anyone beyond those whom the documents relate to.
All images will remain the strict copyright of Linda Pelling Photography unless otherwise agreed by both parties.
From time to time we use images for promotional reasons, such as those on this website and within other promotional documentation. If we would like to use images of yourself for such purposes, we will endeavour to contact you first to ensure you are happy for us to do so (we normally ask at the time of collection). For photographs of minors, however, we will not use their images for any promotional material without the express permission of the parent or guardian.
As with any transaction between two parties, there is an element of trust that has to be assumed. We will endeavour to do our utmost to protect your privacy and confidentiality as we recognise that some images may be regarded as sensitive. All images are stored on computers and on backups, and the computers are protected against virus and hackers with the latest technology to provide the best security we can source.
We ask that this trust is reciprocated. While we recognise that technology is such that electronic and printed images can be copied relatively easily, we ask that you respect our copyright and - more importantly - our work to produce the best images we can for your enjoyment.
... and about my services
We offer a mix of reportage, contemporary, formal and traditional photography. We cover traditional weddings at church or registry offices and civil ceremonies, as well as same sex, pink or gay services.
We have a number of options available ranging from a contemporary photobook and a DVD of all the best pictures from your day (accompanied by music), to a comprehensive collection of albums and DVD's for all the family as well as prints of all your favourite pictures. A free engagement sitting is included with each booking. Contact Linda for a friendly chat to find out all you need to know, and if you have albums or ideas of your own, bring them along too. After all, it's your day.
We offer portraits for pets, children, and family in a relaxed, informal setting. We have experience working with a reputable model agency photographing babies and children up to young adults. Linda has been CRB checked and is available for school or university/prom photography.
We have a charge for a sitting which is fully redeemable against the final product you choose, effectively offering a free sitting service. We can supply prints, DVD's, photobooks or canvas prints if you wish. We hope that if you like what you buy, you'll tell others about us.
We provide portfolios for models (glamour, boudoir and catwalk), actors and actresses, TV presenters and any professional where a portfolio of images would be an asset for promotion. We work with a video company to provide video footage as well.
A great portfolio is the most important tool in your toolbox. We can provide you with a set of prints and a DVD of all the best stills (usually around 100) which you can use to promote yourself simply and effectively. Location shoots undertaken if you prefer.
Property, products and insurance work can be undertaken to help underpin any part of your business, such as promotional work, selling, advertising, and so on. We can develop your ideas to produce a superb package of photographs. Commissions undertaken.
We cover all areas in Cheshire, Lancashire and Flintshire including Chester, Manchester and Liverpool, though we are happy to travel anywhere in the north west or the north (we’ve even covered a wedding in Gretna Green) north Wales – in fact anywhere in the UK with prior arrangements.
All images can be produced in full colour, selective colour, colour toned, sepia, and black and white (monochrome).
All prices quoted to you will be valid for six months (or until the date of the work to be undertaken, if longer). Any work beyond the Cheshire area may be subject to reasonable expenses, though this will be advised at the time of booking. Major undertakings - such as weddings and specific commissions - will be subject to a non-returnable deposit at the time of booking to ensure the date is guaranteed.
Based in South Wirral, Linda Pelling Photography offers photographic services to individuals and businesses at competitive prices. Using the latest digital technology, images can be enhanced and coloured to match your requests.
All private consultations are provided free of charge.
Linda is a member of the Society of Wedding & Portrait Photographers and British Professional Photographers Associates (SWPP & BPPA)
