5. Logistical Requirements
If you are booking an event photographer this section may not apply to you, it is designed towards our Instant-Print technology such as our Photobooths. The Event Manager will identify in the Booking Contract if we need specific requirements for a Event Photographer.
Our Services are designed for indoor and outdoor use depending on the activity. In the event that a service is only designed for indoor you would need specific permission and approval in the Booking Confirmation to use this piece of equipment outside.
We require a floor space and ceiling height as detailed by Us upon request by You. It is your responsibility to provide the required space for the Equipment. You need to provide a single standard electrical power socket within three metres of the proposed location of the Equipment.
The majority of our Equipment can only be situated on a firm flat surface, so if Your Event is in a marquee or similar temporary structure, a suitable base will be required. Our standard price assumes clear access at ground floor level.
If Our Photographer or Event Manager deems the proposed location as unsafe for operation then We reserve the right to not operate the Equipment.
You must ensure, in advance, that the Venue allows reasonable access for loading and suitable parking once the Equipment has been unloaded.
We normally allow two hours to set up the Equipment, although it can be done in less time, and We can dismantle the Equipment in approximately two hours. However, it does depend on where the Equipment is situated in the Venue – every job is different.
If You are hiring the Venue in which the Equipment will be used please also allow plenty of time within the period of hire to allow for these set-up and take-away elements of the Service and for Us to check the Equipment with You before We leave to ensure the Equipment is in the state in which it was first supplied.
Some of Our Services require specific lighting conditions. It is Your responsibility to request the lighting conditions for the Services you are hiring from Us. We will take no responsibility where Our Equipment does not operate due to the Venue lighting conditions.

We require a non refundable deposit of 50% of the Overall Total of your booking payable immediately upon making Your Booking. The outstanding balance, and any other monies due for additional services requested by You subsequent to making Your Booking must be fully paid, in clear funds, not less than 28 days prior to Your Event date or immediately if the event is within 28 days.
Your Booking is not confirmed until you have paid the 50% Deposit.
If alternative payment arrangements are agreed these will be detailed on Your Booking Confirmation. If you are late to make payment, In The Moment Republic reserve the right to charge you an additional late fee.
