At the time of your application, you will be asked to provide a credit card. You will also be asked to select monthly billing, semi-annual or annual billing. Your card will be charged for that amount upon processing and your membership will become active immediately. You may cancel your membership within twenty-four hours by sending an e-mail to membership@studio95photo.com or calling (203) 795-8651. If your request is received within twenty-four hours, a full refund will be returned to your credit card. If you have utilized any member services before requesting a refund, an amount equal to the non-member price for those services will be deducted from your refund.
  2. Studio Rental - We will use a reservation system for photo studio rentals. It is similar to those used by hotels. There are no advance charges for studio rental. All services are paid for at the time of the rental. We take a credit card as security to ensure that you will keep your reservation. You may cancel your studio reservation up to seventy-two hours in advance without penalty or charge. If you fail to cancel your reservation or cancel your reservation under seventy-two hours in advance, your card will be charged 50% of the rental charge for the time you reserved. If you cancel less than twenty-four hours from your scheduled rental time, your card will be charged, however you will be given a voucher for the amount which may be applied to a future rental.
