Payment

Payments & Delivery

Payment for real estate imaging services is due at time of service.

If other arrangements are requested they must be made in writing at least 24-hours before scheduled time of service. In some cases payment may be made after services but before final image delivery. For these situations, watermarked, low-res digital proofs will be made available for approval first. Upon approval, full payment will be made before final images are delivered to CLIENT.

When full payment is collected at time of service, PHOTOGRAPHER agrees to deliver final images digitally within 24-hours of photoshoot start time. For other payment arrangements, PHOTOGRAPHER agrees to deliver final images digitally within 24-hours of receipt of full payment.  

Cancellations & Weather

Cancellations must be made at least 24-hours before scheduled photoshoot start time. Real Estate Photoshoots cancelled with less than 24-hours notice will be subject to a cancellation fee of $75.

Weather-related cancellations are subject to the terms above. Some weather conditions can adversely effect exterior home photo quality or prevent safe drone flight. In the event of unfavorable weather, the interior photos will be photographed as planned. Alternate arrangements will be made for exterior or aerial re-shoot and additional fees may apply unless full cancellation is made at least 24-hours in advance. When weather is dry but blue skies are not present, PHOTOGRAPHER will provide blue sky replacements on all exterior home photos at no additional charge.

Photoshoot Prep Guidelines

CLIENT will ensure that the listing is clean and ready for photography at time of service. PHOTOGRAPHER is not responsible for cleaning, dusting, changing light bulbs or moving of furniture but may adjust window coverings, move small items or turn on/off lights as necessary. CLIENT shall ensure that there are no hazards to the photographer’s safety and that pets are confined and out of view.

PHOTOGRAPHER will not retouch images to disguise known defects and/or physical structures such as: wall/floor blemishes, driveway cracks, power lines, etc.

Appearance of the property

All properties scheduled to be photographed should be “photo ready” this means:

  • All lights, interior and exterior, should work and be able to be turned on at the time of photography, if needed.

  • The floors are clean, carpets vacuumed, glass is clean, etc…

  • No dishes in the sink or on counters.

  • Yard picked up of debris.

If the property does not meet these expectations, we will do all that we can to help, but this could impact the quality of the final images.

Minor adjustments by the photographer, to the appearance of a room such as straightening fabrics, draping throws, or adjusting other small things are acceptable and will likely happen during the course of the shoot. Moving furniture, heavy lifting or re-arranging a room are not the photographer’s responsibility and will not be expected of the photographer.
