House Rules: Note the photographer and videographer are sometimes limited by rules imposed by venue management as to what can and cannot be done. For example some venues insist that no flash photography is allowed, and others will insist that the photographers shoot from a specific location. In such circumstances the Clients agree to accept the technical limitations that may be imposed on the equipment used. We advise the Clients to make themselves aware of the rules of the venue concerned and if necessary negotiate with the personnel concerned.
