In production don't like rules either...but sometimes they are helpful ;)
A 25% deposit is required to book a session. The deposit will be applied to your current session and can be refunded if you cancel more than 48 hours before your session time. If your deposit is not received by 48 hours before your session time, your time may be forfeited to another client.
I accept ONLINE PAYMENTS ONLY. This is to ensure I have received your payment and also that your booking is locked into the calendar. Final payment is due upon the completion of the project, before receiving final mixes/masters.
Your account must be paid in full, prior to receiving your final mixes. Final project files are generally provided through Dropbox.
Whenever I am working on your project, that time is billable. This includes when you are present in the studio, or not. Often, I can find ways to reduce the amount of billable time outside of your attended sessions, so it is a good idea to discuss this ahead of time.
