The images that are in your own personal online gallery are not edited / photoshopped in any way.
They are checked and sorted through thoroughly ensuring that they are the best images taken at our session.
Unless stated otherwise (by you, the client) the original images that you pick will be added into the editing list which means a service fee will be added in; this is either as per image to be edited or within a package you have selected.
Your images may look different in the end result: we do try our best in keeping the colours as close as possible but this is not a guarantee.
All images taken by Peggy Colclough or Paris Tsang of Colclough-Tsang Media, whether stored digitally or otherwise are protected by the Copyright and Design Act 1988. It is contrary to the Act to copy or allow to be copied photographically, electronically or by any other means an image created as part of this contract without written permission from Colclough-Tsang Media. All digital files and prints remain the copyright of Colclough-Tsang Media.

QUESTIONS & ANSWERS.
What happens if Peggy has edited an image, but you’ve not picked or ordered it?
If you’ve given Peggy consent & permission for your images to be uploaded on facebook but would like the high-resolution copy of the image yourself, a charge of £5-£15 (per image) is required for the image to be released and sent out to you via email.
If you’d like that image as a print, please let Peggy know.
How long does it take for the images, to be edited and/or printed?
We take pride that we have a turn-around of your images to be edited within 14working days. However with busy and seasonal periods, this might change and your order might take a little longer than expected. Please bear this in mind during Christmas.
Your prints can take a few days to arrive.
I’m not close to Camborne area so what happens if I can’t collect my package?
If getting to Peggy is an issue, we will be able to consider posing your package to you. For this service, the cost could be anything between £2 - £6 to securely pack your images and post out to you.
We will always use either 1st or 2nd Class Signed For with Royal Mail.
This is to ensure you get your beautiful images sent to you safely as tracking code is available!
