IP
    Firstly, this section is an OPTIONAL EXTRA and does not apply to most non commercial work, but if securing IP is important to you then please read on.

    The Intelectual Property (IP) is an intangible asset associated with photos, images, or deliverable files (the Works), and typically starts of as being proprietary which makes them the property of the person who created them (the Developer). Depending on the nature of the work that is to be completed or delivered, the Client may negotiate to purchase a License or Rights. Alternatively a Work for Hire agreement may be more suitable. If the Client needs to secure IP then an agreement about this needs to be negotiated and put in writing before any development work begins (a Deal Memo or a short form Contract draft may be suitable). This is because the content of the agreement affects the development process, what is deliverable, the payment schedule, and expectations on boths sides.

    Rate Guidelines:

  • A License fee will be based on fully disclosed Usage of the Works, value of the outcomes and any relevant performance of the asset.
  • A Rights transfer fee will be based on fully disclosed estimated realisable commercial value of the Works, or three times the invoiced value of development, whichever is higher.
  • A Work For Hire rate gives posession, ownership and Rights of all development material including final Works to the client, and is calculated as: an upfront retainer fee of $1000 per agreed discreat project to secure performance priority, plus progress payments based on Hourly Rate 1, plus performance bonuses payable at project milestones.

FAQ Answers
What exactly do I get or should expect?
  • The Method -- All services are customised to your needs. You just tell me what you need (a Brief). Alternatively we can Workshop your project, where I work with you side by side until you are happy with the results. I am happy to discuss your ideas, walk through the process, and get to the final result with confidence.
     
  • Work Time -- You are essentially paying for my time, work and skills to produce any deliverable items. Photography and design in general are time consuming activities.
     
  • Files -- Finished files/works for client use, via download / USB stick (eg. .jpg .pdf .html .mp4). Uploads may require client login/assistance (eg. website uploads). I am happy to advise about printing or production as needed.
     
  • Rights -- License FOR YOU to use, for works commissioned for commercial/promotional purposes (the creator has copyright and license choice). License FOR ME to use, for works commissioned for personal/family/weddings photography (client has copyright where work is commissioned for non commercial / non promotional use). ALL OTHER intellectual property issues are to be agreed to in writing before any work starts as this effects the outcome and the value of the work. Note that I typically release my final works via the CC0 license (Public Domain equivalent) which will appear in file meta tags by default. If in doubt then please ask me, as all contracts are subject to agreement between the parties involved. For general guidance in this area refer to artslaw.com.au

  • Cash / Bank Transfer / Paypal are acceptable, per your Invoice [ Domestic Bank Transfer details -- Name: Bob Newman , Account: BSB 012340 , Acc 375263093 , Bank: ANZ ]
  • Payment per Invoice terms as agreed applies to commercial/promotional work, else in advance.
  • A DRAFT Invoice will be prepared and sent to the client for approval before any work begins (for new clients). Please check your invoice, confirming what work is to be done, linked terms, and any other details to be agreed on. Terms showing on this page at the time of your invoice apply unless otherwise stated and agreed to in writing.
  • As a photographer/artist/creative I depend on being able to show my work to promote myself. My work and development is very time consuming. I reserve the right to use any of my work for self promotion (eg. social, blogging, tagging, editorial) without restriction unless otherwise agreed to in advance before any work begins. Restrictions made by the client must be reflected by a consideration premium (price).
  • The client is responsible for delivery and timely collection of artworks/objects/samples as applicable. Maximum care and diligence is always taken for ensuring the safety and security of all delivered objects, however the client remains responsible for all items throughout the process and absolves me and internal parties for any damage or losses. The client can request to be present throughout the process. Note that I operate from a secure access controlled facility that you are welcome to scrutinize, so you can rest assured that your articles will be kept safe until collection.
  • Any other services / work for hire / deliverables are subject to bespoke agreements.
