d) The activity of a professional videographer or enthusiastic hobbyist can endanger the quality of the final product. Please notify us beforehand with contact details – so that we can liaise with other parties and plan the shooting accordingly.
9. Personal Accident:
a) Any directions issued to clients, their guests or employees during a photographic shoot are deemed to be at said persons own risk. The photographer cannot be held responsible for any personal accidents during a photographic shoot.
