Terms of Service

Photo Shoot:
*The homeowner or someone authorized by the homeowner (real estate agent) should be present at the shoot to give access to the home and to discuss any special considerations. It is the agent’s responsibility to ensure that the property is ready for the photo shoot. Please refer to the Preparing Your Home checklist below.

Rescheduling / No-Shows:
*Due to the nature of this type of photography service, there are occasions when it is necessary to reschedule. Please give me a minimum 24-hour notice if you cannot make the appointment or if the property is not ready. If I can book another client, there will be no rescheduling fee. $50 fee – Reschedule request made less than 24 hours prior to appointment. $50 fee – Client No-Show, property not ready, no key or lockbox not working.

Inclement Weather:
*In the event of dark, cloudy skies and rain, I will offer an alternative appointment time with no penalty fee. If you chose to proceed with the shoot as scheduled, regardless of the weather, please understand that the package pricing does not include fixing photos for cloudy skies, rainy windows, etc. Additional retouching and sky replacements will be invoiced at a rate of $25/hr. and/or $50 fee to revisit the property on a sunny day to obtain necessary shots.

Delivery of Images:
I strive for a quick turn-around time of 24-48 hours. Your images will be delivered via an emailed link to a Dropbox folder. Here you will download the final high-resolution image files and save them to your hard drive. A CD of the image files can be provided, if you choose, for a minimal fee.

Travel Fees:
*Travel within 20 miles of Indialantic, Florida (zip code 32903) is included in my Residential Real Estate packages. For properties located outside this service area, additional mileage will be invoiced at .56/mile (as calculated via Google Maps).

Payment:
*Full payment is expected within two weeks of receipt of invoice. A 5% fee will be added for late payments. Cash, checks, and credit cards are accepted. Credit/Debit cards subject to 3% service charge.

Satisfaction Guarantee:
If you are not satisfied with your final images, then I am not satisfied. If you have concerns, I will make every effort to deliver what you're looking for.

Copyright:
The photographer who has taken an image is the copyright holder of the image. For real estate listing images, I grant a “listing term + one year” limited license. This allows for the images to be used for any marketing purpose, both print and web, provided the copyright is not violated by selling, leasing, or gifting the images to any third party. The license is granted to the person that paid for the images. Agents may not give property owners a copy of the images for personal use unless permission is granted by photographer. Builders, stagers, designers and others who wish to use the images may contact me for additional licensing information. Images cannot be sold to another agent who takes over an expired or withdrawn listing, and Images may not be used to market another, similar property.
