It is mutually agreed that the following terms of agreement form an integral part of this contract and that no variation or modification of this contract shall be effective unless accepted by both The Reportage Company and the client, in writing.

The Reportage Company shall be granted creative and artistic licence in relation to the choice of locations and poses used. The Reportage Company's judgement on photographic style and the number of photographs taken shall be deemed correct.
