Terms of Service

Scheduling

Please contact me (503.707.9534) no less than 24 hours before your preferred shoot time. The shoot will take between 1 and 2 hours. Most homes can be shot in 1.5 hours although some shoots may take longer.

Payment

Due at the within 15 days from delivery of the photos (NET 15). Because it’s convenient and reliable, I use Quickbooks for invoicing. On your invoice, a line item charge of 3.3% of the total invoice will be included. If you wish to avoid paying this transaction fee, please send a check for the amount listed in the details of that line item. Thanks for your understanding.

The Shoot

The homeowner or someone authorized by the homeowner (the broker) should be present at the shoot to give access to the home and to discuss any special considerations such as what should be included or excluded in shots. My goal is to provide "Up to" (25-50) photos from multiple angles that include a front exterior, back exterior and all the major rooms. Properties under 1500 sq. ft. may only have 20+ photos, depending.

Pets

Please make sure pets are contained during the shoot. Pets are never included in photos and need to be out of the way during the shoot.

Cancellation

A fee of $40 will be charged for any scheduled appointment cancelled within a 24 hr period of that appointment.

Archived

All content will be archived for a 1 year period after which time they will no longer be available for download.
