Apply – People of Ipswich


The purpose of People of Ipswich is to offer free photo sessions with people battling cancer or other life threatening illnesses and cancer survivors. Recipients are granted free photo sessions by a nomination and/or application process.


A recipient falls into two categories – patients and survivors. A patient is any individual who has been diagnosed with cancer or another life threatening illness and is in active treatment. A patient is also an individual who has relapsed. A survivor is any individual who is not in active treatment and has been labeled as “cancer free.” Survivors are eligible to become a recipient within 24 months of their last cancer free test result.


Every care is taken to create photographs that you will love. Due to the charity nature of People of Ipswich, satisfaction for sessions and/or photographs is not guaranteed. Amanda Waschevski is hereby released from any claim, loss, injury, or damage due to dissatisfaction by recipient.


In the unlikely event of unforeseen illness or any other circumstances either in control or beyond my control, I will use reasonable efforts to find a substitute photographer of high qualifications. However, I am under no obligation to make a substitution and I can not guarantee that a substitute photographer will have the same credentials as myself.

Photographer’s Judgment.

All photographs will be taken at the photographer’s sole discretion. I will not be responsible for any of the following, which may result in a change in the length of a photo session or rescheduling a photo session: (1) recipient or recipient’s family members running late; (2) illness of recipient or illness of others; (3) weather; (4) recipient or recipient’s family members stuck in traffic; (5) acts of God; (6) poor planning by recipient; (7) lack of providing directions to photographer. This list is not all-inclusive, I am not limited to the above-enumerated reasons alone.

Location and Session Information.

Sessions usually take place in my private studio. If applicable, recipient is responsible for providing a map to locations, emergency telephone numbers, and a list of any special persons, places, or objects to be photographed.

Delay or Cancellation due to Recipient.

If a photo session is delayed or cancelled due to the actions of the recipient, rescheduling will be at my discretion. While every effort will be made to reschedule, I cannot guarantee it.


No other photographs, professional or otherwise, are permitted to photograph these closed sessions, as they draw focus from the subject.

Specific Image Requests.

I accept input from recipients regarding family members, friends, and scenes to be photographed. I cannot guarantee delivery of specifically requested image(s) although all efforts will be made if an appropriate amount of time and conditions is allotted to do so.

Model Release.

A model released will be provided to each recipient, giving the recipient the option to allow the images from their sessions and the recipient’s first name to be used for marketing purposes. The release is optional, and permissions will be respected.


If the recipient agrees to allow me to use images from the session and the recipient’s first name for marketing purposes, the recipient gives permission to me to use their names and photographic likeness in all forms and media for advertising, trade, and any other lawful purposes.


I will provide your favourite photograph as an 8″ x 10″ matted archival print.

Time until Delivery.

I will make reasonable efforts to edit and submit photos within a reasonable time, though I make no guarantees regarding time of delivery for images, digital or otherwise.


Amanda Waschevski will own all copyrights for any and all images produced in connection with this agreement, including the exclusive right to reproduce images. I also retain the right to publicly display images if proper permission is given by recipient. As author of all images made hereunder and as provided by law, I will retain the copyrights in perpetuity, regardless of possession or ownership of photographs, digital files, or any other format of reproduction.

Non-commercial use by recipient.

Recipient may reproduce images created hereunder for personal, non- commercial use including reproduction of copies for family and friends. Recipient will not permit or assist in any commercial use or sale of the images without specific consent of Amanda Waschevski.
