professional imaging lab has produced the printed images.
For printed images to meet the quality of the original digital files, they must be printed
on high-quality photographic paper or other professional photographic mediums and
done so by a professional lab.
It is highly recommended that the Client order printed images from a reputable,
professional lab to ensure that the quality of their digital images is met.

images printed by any imaging lab, both professional and non-professional.

conditions herein, it shall be mutually negotiated in good faith.
10. Liability.

the inherent qualities of dyes, and the Client hereby releases the Photographer from
any liability for any claims whatsoever based upon fading or discoloration due to such
inherent qualities.
The Client is responsible for protecting and caring for their printed and/or digital
products. The Photographer is not responsible for any damaged products after the

processing, lost through camera or media malfunction, lost in the mail, or otherwise lost
or damaged without fault on the part of the Photographer.
