24. Please note As the supplier of services these terms and conditions take precedence over any terms and conditions which may be received from the client even if those terms and conditions have a clause similar to this. Photographs may not be used until all fees are paid in full. Whilst every endeavour is made to provide satisfactory and efficient service to our clients, as the agent we cannot be held responsible for a model’s conduct on any assignment. The agent reserves the right to negotiate within the structure of these terms and conditions.
