Terms/Conditions & FAQ’s

Terms / Conditions & FAQ’s for commissioning a shoot with Tanya Zouev Photography.

A working relationship benefits from getting to know one another, so in order to enjoy a smooth partnership, here are some important terms and conditions about our services outlined below.

All projects or services that Tanya Zouev Photography are contracted to produce or provide for you will be subject to the following:


We provide a bespoke photography service and regularly organise and refer the following suppliers: food stylists, props stylists, set builders, art/creative directors, producers, videographers, hair and makeup artists, location companies and hire studios.

We do not offer set packages instead preferring to quote each commission individually, thus we will require a written brief outlining what type of photography you need and the result that you are seeking by way of visual references (these can come from either my website or from Pinterest or similar sources). Creative services are subjective and highly interpretive so being really clear on the end result you are seeking will ensure that any work carried out will be on brand and on brief.

The quotes (day rates, fees and associated costs and line items) sent to you are our best estimates given our extensive professional experience, and the information provided by you at the enquiry stage. The more detailed the brief, the more accurate your quote will be. Please ensure that your brief includes how many deliverables are required as post production is quoted as a separate line item to the shoot day.

If additional information is forthcoming, the specifications change, or the scheduled content changes, the quote may change. Quotes are valid for 30 days from date they are provided.


We offer half day and full day shoots (a half day shoot is the minimum service that we offer). Our jobs are all quoted individually as each client has very different requirements, however as a rough guide, our services generally start at around $2000 ex GST for a half day shoot including a set number of deliverables.

Project Revisions, Alterations & Modifications

New work requested by you, and provided by us, after a project quote has been approved is considered a revision, alteration or modification and will be charged on a time and materials basis. Prior to acceptance of any commission, all briefs are subject to consultation with one of our preferred professional stylists to ensure the desired shot list is achievable and realistic.

Additional image requests on shoot days will be accommodated only if time allows and at our discretion. If the shot schedule does not allow for extra content requests, you will be given the option of increasing the shoot duration by way of overtime (an additional hourly rate for all photography team members, including stylists and assistants).

Image Correction, Adjustments, Change Requests, Errors & Omissions

The vast majority of work provided by us is shot whilst tethered to a computer with a client present, giving you ample opportunity to view, approve and sign off images as they are photographed. Post-shoot, the raw files are processed in Capture One Pro and fine tuning is applied to overall colour and tonality. A great deal of time and effort is put into this process to ensure that the high resolution files (TIFF, JPEG or PSD) are of an extremely high standard. Electronic proofs are provided to you within 72 hours of the shoot for sign off and approval and you must carefully review all images. We are not liable for image corrections, adjustments, errors or omissions once a project proof sheet has been signed off. If further work is required after the sign-off stage, a post production fee will be charged to cover this time.

Project Schedule & Schedule of Dependencies

A project schedule will be established and adhered to by both you and us and it is particularly important to provide a brief to both photographer and stylist well ahead of a scheduled shoot date to ensure that the stylist has adequate time to source props, backgrounds and sets. Where you do not adhere to a project schedule, final delivery dates will be adjusted accordingly.

Payment Terms

All shoots over the value of $2000 ex GST are subject to a 50% deposit payment of the total quote amount to cover the cost of props hire and purchase and to secure the shoot date. The final payment of 50% is due on delivery and sign off of low resolution shoot proofs. High resolution files will not be provided without payment in full to both photographer and stylist. Any revisions, alterations and modifications that add work to the project scope and deviate from the original agreed quote will be invoiced separately and in addition to.

Copyright & Usage

All photography end use is discussed and agreed to prior to a shoot taking place as these vary from client to client, and from territory to territory. Standard usage terms is Australia and New Zealand use for an agreed time period (12 months, 24 months etc) across all major platforms. Unless a prior arrangement for a complete image buyout has been agreed upon in writing, Tanya Zouev Photography retains copyright and all moral rights to each image produced and retains ownership of all original raw files and processed files supplied, including digitally altered compositions.

Our Use Of Final & Finished Imagery

We shall retain the right to any finished and final imagery in our promotional and marketing activities, including participation in photographic competitions, use in photographic publications and electronic, printed or other portfolio use.
