About ImagesByLeon

ImagesByLeon is run by Leon Watkins, a photographer with over 20 years of photographic experience based in Chesham, a market town in the Heart of the Chilterns with easy access to Buckinghamshire, Hertfordshire, Buckinghamshire and Greater London and the M25 catchment area.

I've been taking photographs since my early teens and have seen and experienced many changes in the way photography is conducted - but whatever changes may occur with technology (and I am very happy for the flexibility and speed it gives me), one constant has always remained - that my photography is about being able to capture something beautiful., create a story and engage the heart and the head with the pictures that I take.


General Information

Speed

I'm very proud that in most cases, I will be able to give you a working set of photographs within two weeks of the event, and in the majority of cases I aim to deliver a review set for online proffing within a week. For special rush jobs or individual commissions I can provide turnaround within 12 hours, with delivery by dropbox, googledrive, Secure or normal FTP, DVD, or email. If prints are required these generally have a turnaround of 10 days as I use a specialist professional print house.

Additional Services

I can provide Album or photobook compilation and production services, provide albums for you and your families, and also produce private or public web galleries which can be hosted on my own site or exported to facebook, Pinterest, Flikr or your own or other social or web hosting platforms.

Pricing

Pricing is dependent on the specifications of the job. Please contact me for a discussion of your requirements and a tailored quote. I will always strive to provide you with a competitive quote without any hidden extras, and will treat your questions and requirements with sensitivity and professionalism. I am happy to provide invoicing services if required.

Payment Options and Terms

I can take payment by Credit and Debit cards (Visa & Mastercard), BACs transfer, cash, cheque, Paypal and mobile payments (Barclays Pingit and O2 Wallet). Please note that a 5% surcharge will apply to payments made by card or Paypal.

For bookings made more than 2 weeks in advance, a 40% non-refundable deposit is required. Full payment will be required for shorter notice bookings. Balance of payment may be made up to 30 days after the shoot. Final images / galleries / albums at full resolution will be provided after the balance of payment has been received and confirmed.. Any additional work carried out beyond the initial booking will be charged at the agreed rate. If a rate has not been agreed then an hourly rate will be derived from the original booking terms. If additional post production work is required, terms will be negotiated separately. If payment is not completed within these terms I reserve the right to rescind dual copyright and/or use agents in order to recover outstanding monies

Discounts and Referrals

Any returning customer who has a fully paid assignment over £200 automatically qualifies for a 20% discount on their next assignment. The second assignment must be at least 8 days from the first to qualify. I also operate a referral and rebate scheme for businesses in Amersham, Berkhamstead and Chesham. Please contact me for further details of these schemes.

Copyright Information

All images produced have dual copyright. Sole copyright can be arranged if required. All images will be supplied without watermarking and you can use any paid-for image in any manner, commercial or personal (within the civil legislative restrictions of the territory you will be distributing them from and within).

I may use your photos for promotional purposes for my own products and services but I will not resell or licence any image without prior consent and/or agreed commercial agreement. If reasonable attempts at contacting the joint copyright holder(s) fail after 90 days for images I wish to resell or commercialise (including licensing) I reserve the right to proceed with the sale with an implied consent.

All the images on this site are owned by Leon Watkins and my clients and I will persue any infringment of our rights to these photos to the fullest extent of the law in the applicable territory.
