Consumer Products

There's no obligation to buy until you're happy with what you want and we've agreed a contract.  After that payment will be required and then I'll ship the item to you as soon as it's ready, I will let you know at the time you order what the expected delivery time is and if I experience delays I will keep you informed. Ordinarily the vast majority of my products can be dispatched to you within 7 working days of order.  For some specialist printing I may require a deposit to be paid whilst the product is being prepared and the remainder before dispatch.
Unfortunately, due to the individual nature of the products I can't offer a refund once the product has been produced.  All my items are shipped in a protective wrapping and are quality inspected before dispatch to ensure that the product you receive is in perfect condition. Also you should note that due to the personalised nature of our products I am unable to offer a right to cancel or "cooling off period", this complies with The Consumer Protection (Distance Selling) Regulations 2000, Paragraph 13 (1) (c).  So please don't order until you are satisfied with your requirements.  If you are unsure and need advice please get in touch and I'll help where I can.
Please also note that printing on different surfaces will alter the colourisation of products, computers are all set-up differently and the colours you see on your screen will not match exactly what you get in a print.  However, all our printing services use custom made ICC profiles to match the printer, ink and paper to guarantee that the prints we offer are of the highest quality.  Again if you're unsure about what this means for your print get in touch and I will help.


A Note on Copyright
All imagery copyright will remain with Metamorpheus Ltd.  You will be granted specific license to use the imagery as agreed during contract negotiation.  If you feel you need royalty free or creative commons licensing you should discuss this at the start of contract negotiations since all prices quoted will assume copyright ownership remains with Metamorpheus Ltd unless specifically requested and agreed.
If you intend to use your own business premises and/or employees for the shoot you will be required to complete a property release form and each employee used will be required to complete a model release form.  These forms are standard industry practice but are tailored to the specific requirements of your contract.  Should you have any questions concerning these forms you should discuss these with me prior to the shoot or on the day of the shoot before any footage is recorded.  


A General Note on Costs

Once the shoot has started the  full cost of the contract will be due even if I am unable to complete the shoot if this is through no fault on the part of Metamorpheus Ltd.
However, should the shoot need to be rearranged or relocated due to inclement weather then only actually incurred costs will be due to Metamorpheus Ltd.



Products and Services
Most of the images you see on this site are for sale as prints.  I print in house up to A3+ and use PermaJet Ultra Pearl 295 papers, which offer a UV protective microporus coating and are scratch resistant to ensure long lasting images.  For other specialist papers and canvas I use my printing partners and prices for these are available on an individual basis.

As well as still imagery Metamorpheus also provide video production services, specialising in small corporate webverts for company websites and video sharing sites such as YouTube.  If you would like to talk to me about producing your next webvert contact me via the contact form, leave an email address or phone number and I will contact you asap.  Because I'm a very small company it might be the next day because if I'm out on a shoot then phones will be off!

I also offer straight and creative photography services for company advertisement campaigns; so if you would like me to organise a shoot for you please get in tough via the contact form.

Consumer Rates
A note on pricing of our consumer services:

At Metamorpheus Ltd I offer a quality service rather than cheap, sometimes inferior services, just check out the galleries for reassurance of my quality and skilled photography.  Also I don't add costs to items I buy in just for you.  If you want an album or book printing I will recommend products to you and order on your behalf at no more than the price on the website - I do not mark-up these items, if I can negotiate a discount I will. The only thing I charge for on albums and books are the cost of the item plus any additional processing time - which would be exceptional because most of the processing has already been done.

Further, check out the special offers page for details of current offers.  If you're not too sure about the price you would need to pay for a specific service call me or drop me an email and I will provide you with an estimate, if you have a budget that you must stick to, let me know so that I can tailor the service to that budget.


I don't claim to offer you something that's not actually offered.  Many sites may offer "copyright free" images.  Please check the license terms and conditions before you buy a copyright free disc because they rarely are.  Copyright will always remain with the photographer or company for whom they work.  Your copyright disc will probably allow you to print a set number of images or share with family, it will not allow you to sell the photographs or use them in commercial work (you shouldn't even share them with commercial organisations such as the florist or venue without specific permission from the photographer, who will probably then charge those organisations).  I will offer you a disc with images that you may print individually or in collections (albums, books etc), you may give those books or prints to other family members and friends (and they can pay the costs of printing) but you may not sell the prints, books or albums etc.  You may also share the images on social media sites so long as there is a clear indication that copyright remains with Metamorpheus Ltd - I will provide a folder of social media ready images for you to share in this way. I am open about copyright ownership and will not try and hide my ownership behind fancy words or offers.

Please also read the Legal Information at the top of this page and my Terms and Conditions, if you're not sure about anything give me a call or drop me an email and I will explain.

All prices listed below are excluding VAT, but at the moment I'm not registered for VAT so you don't pay it for my services anyway. Payment can be made by PayPal, iZettle (card reader) or BACS, any cheque payments will need to clear before orders are processed, you will receive an invoice for any orders and a receipt once the payment has cleared.
