2. Length of studio use

The last 10 minutes of the hour will be dedicated to cleaning and getting the space ready for the next client. Rental begins promptly at the prescribed starting time and ends promptly 10 minutes before the end of the hour. In the event of late arrival, the rental will still end promptly 10 minutes before the end of the hour. No exceptions will be made. Failure to vacate the premises at the prescribed time will result in additional fees charged by Studios Boheme. Please arrive 10 minutes before the start of your Rental. This time will be needed to process any remaining payment and sign the waivers.
3. Payments and deposits
4. Cancellations and postponements
A non-refundable 50% deposit is a fee to reserve your rental date and time. This fee is non-refundable. Rental may be rescheduled if the renter contacts the studio at least 48 hours prior to the rental date. In this case, the deposit can be applied to the new date of the rental. The rental may only be rescheduled once, and the rescheduled time and date is subject to the studio availability. If the renter fails to cancel/reschedule within 48 hours and/or does not show up at the location of the photo session, the deposit is forfeited and may not be applied to another session.
If the renter is unable to attend the photo session due to force majeure (fire, flood, earthquake, elements of nature or acts of God, acts of war, terrorism, riots, civil disorders, rebellions or revolutions, or any other similar cause beyond the reasonable control of the client), reasonable effort will be undertaken by Studios Boheme to reschedule the rental.
No exceptions will be made as these rules are established to ensure the high quality of service and respect for both the Studios Boheme time and availability for other renters/clients.
