POLICIES AND CONDITIONS

Scheduling and Contact Information

Please inquire about our services or schedule your appointment by completing the Contact Us form or by phone at (410) 916-0404.  

Photo shoots will usually take between 1 and 2 hours depending on the size and complexity of the property.

Delivery of Photographs

Images are generally delivered by 7pm the next business day following the shoot via dropbox with links to both hi-resolution images, for your marketing materials, and low-resolution images, sized for the web and the MLS.  Images for Saturday shoots will be available at 7pm on the following Monday.

Payment

Payment may be made in full on-site with check or credit card.  Unless you are an established client, payment is required before the images will be delivered.  If payment arrangements for regular clients have previously been made, a statement will be sent out the following day.  Full payment is expected in 14 days.  

At The Shoot

As we're shooting, we make every effort to make a room look ready which includes moving small items, small furniture, etc. from the shots. Please note however, that this does not include cleaning or decluttering.  Homeowners and Agents are expected to have the property cleaned, ready and staged prior to the photo shoot. 

Cancellation, No-Shows and Inclement Weather Policy

Cancellations/Rescheduling require a 24-hour advance notice.   Please attempt to cancel or re-schedule as soon as you are able.  

In the event of inclement weather precluding exterior photography, a "drive-by" shoot of the property exterior will be rescheduled at the earliest possible time.

If conditions warrant rescheduling, we leave it up to your discretion to reschedule. We ask that if you would like to do this, that you do it with as much notice as possible. We assume we are still shooting the property (interiors) unless you call/ email us to reschedule.

Licensing Rights and Photo Usage

All images produced for an agent or broker may be used by that agent for any and all marketing materials and campaigns associated with the property and for the agent’s self-promotion. The photos may also be used by the agent’s parent company for the sole purpose of marketing the specific property photographed.  Please note however, that all the images are owned and copyrighted by the photographer, and licensed granted only to the agent and the agent’s parent company and not to any third parties.  You may not transfer or sell any of the images.  Any usage of the images by a third party, including but not limited to architects, builders, stagers, designers, sellers, or buyers, is strictly prohibited unless approved and licensed in writing by the photographer.
