All of the descriptions of the goods and services within this site are accurate to the best of our knowledge. We correct all errors as soon as we are aware of them.

The images provided as prints on the Derryography website are the property of Derry Ainsworth (the copyright owner) and are used by Derryography with permission.

No rights are conferred in the purchase of a print from Derryography. You must not use, copy, modify or share these images in any manner.

For any commercial enquiries, please contact us via the Contact Form.


In the following conditions of contract “the photographer(s)” shall mean Derry Ainsworth trading as Derryography or, subject to condition 7 below, any photographers appointed by Derryography. The Client(s)” shall be those whose name appears on the booking confirmation. If the client(s) arrange for a third party to meet the costs of this contract the contract remains with the client(s). The due performance of the contract is subject to the conditions below. These cannot be varied in any way by the client(s) unless such conditions are expressly agreed by the photographer(s) in writing.

    1. Copyright: The Copyright Designs and Patents Acts assign the copyright of the images to the photographer(s). It is therefore contrary to the Acts, and illegal, to copy, or allow to be copied, by any means photographic, by computer, or internet or otherwise, by any person or machine other than by the photographer(s) or their appointed agents.

    2. Display: The client(s) hereby allow(s) the photographer(s) to display any photograph covered by this contract and to generally promote the business in advertising, brochures, magazine articles, websites, sample albums and prints, venue and other vendor samples, and other such material, providing that the images used are used lawfully and without damage to the client(s). Images placed in password protected galleries within the website are not available to the general public in the normal course of events. However it is impossible to prevent determined persons from accessing these galleries.

    3. License, Coverage and Reproduction:

      1. Artistic License: The Photographer(s) shall be granted artistic license in relation to the poses photographed and the locations used. The photographer(s) judgment regarding the location, poses and number of photographs taken shall be deemed correct.

      2. Discretion: Photographs taken during the course of the event will be at the discretion of the photographer(s) although every effort will be made to comply with The Client(s) requirements.

      3. Capture of all individuals: The photographer(s) shall endeavour to photograph all individuals as requested by the client(s) at some point, but no responsibility will be taken by the photographer(s) on the occasion of leaving somebody out.

      4. Venue Restrictions: For a booking involving certain venues, the photographer(s) movements are sometimes restricted by the official in charge. The area from which the photographer(s) is able to cover the event may not be the photographer(s) choice and the photographer(s) cannot accept responsibility for any obstructed view should this be the case. The use of artificial lighting may be restricted or prohibited. The photographing of parts or even all of the event may be restricted or prohibited. Client(s) are strongly advised to check with the appropriate official.

      5. Capture of all moments: For any event booking the photographer(s) shall endeavour to capture as many moments as possible throughout the day as they occur. However, because of the fluid nature of the event, some moments might not be recorded, or not recorded for logistical reasons.

      6. Alterations: Please note that any alterations made to the booking by the client(s) once details have been confirmed may only be made at the discretion of the photographer(s) and in some circumstances (such as the change of event date) the photographer(s) may be unable to accommodate these alterations due to a conflict of commitments. Under these circumstances the photographer(s) are not liable to compensate the client(s) in any way whatsoever.

      7. Colour Representation:It is understood that all photographic printing is undertaken within the technical limitations of the process and that colour may not be identical over the whole range of colours within a subject. It is also understood that prints made at different times or in different sizes may be variable in colour balance.

      8. Due to the limitations of computer monitors it is understood that (1) images appear differently according to the specification of each monitor (2) prints will not match images rendered on any particular computer monitor. The monitors used by the photographer (s) for final image editing are all colour profiled and checked weekly for accuracy of colour. Clients should be aware that certain lighting conditions and materials will cause colour to be recorded differently. Where possible we will attempt digital correction of this.

      9. Print Sizes All print and presentation sizes quoted are approximate and subject to the discretion of the photographer(s).

      10. Equipment Failure Although all equipment is checked regularly and backup equipment is available, the photographer(s) will not be responsible for photographs that are not produced due to technical failure, either at the shooting or processing stage.

      11. Data Compatibility: Where images are made available for use with a personal computer the default operating system shall be Macintosh. Products may not function on other or earlier operating systems. Where images are made available for use on a DVD player reasonable steps are taken to ensure compatibility, but DVD discs may not play on all DVD players particularly older models.

    4. Prices:

      1. All standard photographic services and optional extras specified on the Booking Form and paid for Within 10 days of receiving an invoice. Optional extras not paid for in full before the event are supplied at the prices ruling at the time of receipt of the order.

    5. Payments:

By paying the deposit you are agreeing to the terms and conditions laid out in this document. The deposit forms part of the total cost of your Plan (i.e. it is NOT in addition to the cost of the package) and is deducted when calculating the final balance due. The deposit is refundable during your 14 day “cooling off” period. The deposit cannot be transferred to other services offered by Derryography. Payment for the balance is due in full 5 weeks prior to the contracted date. Once final payment has been made all monies are non refundable at the discretion of the photographer.

      2. All additional goods must be paid for in full on ordering. This includes extra prints, albums, high resolution digital files,  and any other services ordered after the event.

      3. Title to all goods remains with Derryography until paid for in full by the client(s).

      4. Payments are welcomed by Cheque, cash or credit/ debit card with no additional fees for any method. However in the event of a failed cheque clearance the client will be liable to pay an admin fee of $300HKD to cover additional bank costs and re-submission time.

    6. Force Majeure:

      1. The due performance of the contract is subject to alteration or cancellation by the photographer(s) owing to any cause beyond their reasonable control (e.g sudden illness/injury/victim of crime, flooding).

      2. The photographer(s) may contact other photographers in the event that they are not able to attend your booking due to clause 6a). However it may prove difficult or impossible to find a skilled replacement photographer at short notice or at the same price.

      3. In the event of cancellation by the photographer(s), or in the unlikely event of total photographic failure (although re-shoots may be arranged if practicable) – the photographer(s) will not be responsible for costs in order to stage re-shoots. The photographer(s) liability shall be limited to a full refund of any deposits and fees paid.

    7. Liability for Digital Files and Products:

      1. The negatives and digital files shall remain the property of the photographer(s) and shall be kept or stored by them for not less than 4 months from the event date at one site. Any requests for data after the 4 month exchange period, are subject to a $500HKD data recovery fee (subject to data availability). If the client has not downloaded and stored the data within the 4 month period the photographer is not held liable for any damages or any form of refund.

      2. Should negatives and digital files be lost, damaged or destroyed the photographer(s) liability shall be limited to a refund of fees paid, but shall not include a refund for any goods already supplied or capable of supply at a quality deemed acceptable by the photographer.

      3. All orders should be placed with the photographer(s) before the end of a 4 month period starting at the event date unless otherwise agreed in writing. The photographer(s) will not be liable for failure to produce any orders placed after this time.

      3. Where the photographer(s) are able to rebook the date with an equivalent booking, then the cancellation fee may be reduced to the non-refundable deposit only and any additional cancellation fees already paid may be refunded accordingly.

      4. Where the client wishes to change the date of the event, provided that the event is more than 7 days away the client may request a date change with no additional cost incurred. Date change requests made within 7 Days of the booked date will be subject to an additional cost of $500HKD. Where the new event date is available the client may change their originally booked date provided the photographer does not envisage the new date detracting from the level of service of existing bookings close to that date.

    9. Placing an Order and Receipt of Goods:

The photographer(s) will not be held liable for any costs incurred due to alterations to the order made by the client after this time. Email is not a reliable method of notification due to the unpredictable operation of message scanners. You must request and receive a confirmation by email if you choose to use this method.

Coverage may be cancelled without warning at the discretion of the photographer if the photographer feels threatened or has reason to believe that equipment may be damaged.
