Terms and Conditions

Scheduling and Policy Information

Scheduling and Contact Next day orders are difficult to schedule, cannot be guaranteed and are subject to an additional charge. Once both parties have acknowledged the date and time of the appointment, the appointment will be considered “booked”.

Before the Shoot

With the confirmation of the shoot date and time We will attached a separate sheet that is a check list that can be helpful to go over if the home is occupied, some of the basics are; take down anything too personal, family pictures, religious artifacts etc. Remove expensive things that could be stolen if seen online. Remove all clutter. Empty all waste baskets, no dirty dishes, clean kitchens, clean bathrooms, all bed made, make sure the yard is landscaped and lawn mowed. Remember these photos are taken of the home “As IS” and every effort will be made to accommodate and skip to area that are immediately ready but the photographer will not wait for things to be cleaned or moved, this is very important to have your client prepped with these expectations. Also the authorized representative is ultimately in charge of the shots so if the homeowner makes recommendations the photographer will refer to only the instructions of the authorized representative rather than the homeowner.

At the Shoot The Client (Agent)

is responsible for the presence of an authorized representative at the shoot to approve the Photographer’s interpretation of the project before ending the shoot and leaving the premises the photographer will present the authorized representative proofs of the shots taken via back of the camera or wireless transfer on an Ipad or cell phone at this time the photographer will require an oral approval from the authorized representative that the composure of the bulk of the photos are acceptable colors, concepts and finer details will be approved after post processing, also that all of the expected shots are represented in the set proofs. If a Client or Brokerage representative is not present, the Photographer’s interpretation shall be deemed acceptable. The photographer will make a reasonable effort to remove litter, stray objects, etc. from the rooms; however please note that this does not include things like making beds or arranging furniture or any sort of cleaning. The photographer may request help moving object around to get the right shot but are not responsible if accidental damage occurs. Agents are expected to have the property staging and cleaning completed prior to the photo shoot. All properties will be shot “As Is.” Your input is important when choosing the best rooms and angles to photograph.

Real Estate Listing Photos Style Options

Artistic Style- We take more of an artistic approach and pay attention to specific details on the home and use a 19mm wide angle lens for the bulk of the photos this is able to show much of the room but allows very little distortion and all the line are straight and true to as the eye sees it. This is most appropriate to high end luxury homes. We will still use an ultra wide lens for appropriate shots.

Wide Angle Style- This is where we really make a small space sparkle we use a 12mm lens that give the home a very roomy appearance while still focusing on the charm and special characteristics of property. There may be mild distortion on some views and some photos may be cropped but they are all tastefully done in post processing. This is most appropriate for smaller homes and condos .


Invoices are generated within 24hrs of the shoot with the final costs this will also include the license for these images to be used once the financial obligation is met. Once the invoice is paid you will receive a second copy that reflects PAID and the user license is then valid.
