Photography Agreement

By booking a Studio Session and/ or ordering Images from Tame & Wild Studio, you indicate that you accept the following Terms of Use, and agree to be bound by them.  This Photography Agreement sets out the terms on which Tame & Wild Studio will take photographs of your pets and license you to use images taken.

In this Photography Agreement, “Images” means the images Tame & Wild Studio takes for you and includes but is not limited to:

a) photographic prints;
b) images displayed on Tame & Wild Studio’s website;
c) digital storage media and memory cards
d) digital files such as jpgs, gifs and all other file formats


A Studio Session booking is for up to two pets from the same household. If you wish to add additional pets after you have made your booking, please confirm this with us prior to your Studio Session.

For studio sessions involving one or two pets we welcome two accompanying people and we ask that you be prepared to participate in the session.  Your involvement will include assisting Tame & Wild Studio in communicating with your pet and holding toys to get your pet into the right position for the photographer.

For more than two pets, we ask that you bring one person per pet to assist. If you would like more people to attend, please check with us first because too many people will be a distraction to your pet during their Studio Session.

Once we have received your deposit (Studio Session Fees) we will confirm the date and time of the Studio Session.

The Client agrees to comply with the rules and directions of Tame & Wild Studio during the shoot and whilst on Tame & Wild Studio’s premises.

It is the client’s responsibility to ensure that their pet is secure at all times other than when required by Tame & Wild Studio. Dogs are to be on leads and cats/other pets in secure cages.

You may not take your own photographs nor video at the Studio Session.


Studio Session Fees are payable with respect to the shoot and are quoted by Tame & Wild on a case by case basis.

Studio Session Fees must be paid in full as a deposit to secure your booking.

If you change your shoot date or time with more than 48 hours notice no Studio Session Fees will be charged and we will refund you the full amount paid.

If you change your shoot date or time with more than 48 hours notice no Studio Session Fees will be charged and we will refund you the full amount paid.

There is no transaction fee for AMEX, VISA or Mastercard payments.


Following the Studio Photography Session we will book in a Viewing & Purchasing Session at which you will be able to design and order artwork featuring your pet(s).

The Viewing Session will be held at 105 Prahran Avenue Davidson unless otherwise agreed.

You acknowledge and agree that we are not required to keep all images on file indefinitely and that you will not be able to place orders for images more than 42 days after your Viewing Session. We will not be actively deleting the images however current technology (hard drives do not last forever and can fail without warning) does not guarantee that we always have access to the images of your pets.


Image Fees are payable for the Images you order, including the rights Tame & Wild Studio grants you to use such Images.  You can choose to pay using one of the following options:

a) FULL UPFRONT PAYMENT – pay in full on the day of the Viewing Session;

b) INTEREST FREE PAYMENT PLANS – available with flexible payment options through PayRight. Choose your artwork, hang it in your home and pay for it over time with zero interest! There are processing fees applicable to all payment plans and we will disclose what they are prior to processing your payment plan.

Any order cancellations need to be made in writing within 3 days of placing your Order (prior to processing /printing), and all deposits made will be forfeited.

We will notify you when your Order is ready to be picked up. If your Order hasn’t been picked up after three weeks a daily interest rate of 2% of the outstanding balance will apply.


Estimated processing time is approximately four weeks from the time of ordering.  We will call to let you know when your Order is ready for collection.

If the quality of the Artwork does not meet expectations, the client may receive a replacement Image of the same size free of charge. However, once a client has taken possession of an artwork Tame & Wild Studio is no longer responsible for its quality.


In the event an on location shoot is required a $1.15 per km travel fee will be charged in addition to an extra charge covering the cost of studio setup and pack down (which will be quoted on a case by case basis).

The client agrees to communicate any special requests that would require pre-planning to Tame & Wild Studio at least one week before the Studio Session and we will use reasonable endeavours to accommodate reasonable requests. Fulfillment of special requests will not be possible if not communicated by 7 days prior to the photo shoot.
