Please read the Terms and Conditions before scheduling your project.
I require a minimum of 48 hours notice for all photography services – last-minute requests will be addressed individually. Please use my home preparation guide to ensure the home is cleaned and staged. All properties will be shot “as is” unless a staging fee has been applied.
AT THE SHOOT
I do prefer to be alone at the shoot. However, the client, homeowner, or authorized representative may be present during the shoot. I will make a reasonable effort to exclude unwanted or unsightly objects before shooting each room – this does not include making beds, de-cluttering, or moving heavy furniture. It’s understood that without your input, I will photograph the property using my experience and judgment. SEE MY PREP GUIDE.
AFTER THE SHOOT
After the initial shoot, I will digitally process the images. This can include compositing, necessary color correction, retouching, and preparing master files for final delivery. Advanced retouching is available for standard MLS listing. Rates will depend on your requested needs.
Most standard MLS photo deliverables will be delivered within one business day of the photoshoot. I will provide one set of images optimized for MLS and suitable for print. Additional types and formats of the produced photos can be made available upon request. Expedited delivery is available for an additional cost. Files are delivered by a private digital link.
CANCELLATION & HOME ACCESS
Please note, that a full rate will be charged for any shoot canceled within 24 hours of a “booked” appointment. If the client, homeowner, or representative is not available to provide access to the home during the allotted shooting time, I will consider it a cancellation, and the full rate will be billed.
I am happy to provide photography services for properties located outside of my normal service area. A travel fee may be charged for properties located outside of Pensacola city limits. This charge is based on the current GSA mileage rate for 2023, $0.655 per mile
Ground and Aerial videos. I currently charge $95.00 an hour for video production associated with real estate-style projects, so prices vary. You can reference my starting prices on my order page. Higher-end productions that incorporate aerial and ground footage, with time to allow for proper lighting conditions, adequate exposure, and complete color correction with grading begin at $425.00. Please contact me to discuss the production level needed for your project. Note, that gear preparation, travel time to and from the project, actual production, editing, delivery, and any changes are included in the hourly cost.
For most RE projects, once you’re satisfied with the deliverables, I will forward an invoice via email through QuickBooks. Payment is due within five days of the initial photoshoot unless there are preexisting payment conditions understood. A late fee of 2.25% will be automatically applied after ten days and every ten days after that until the balance is paid in full. I accept checks, credit, debit, and ACH transfers.
For larger projects, multi-day projects, or projects that require out-of-region travel, I’ll normally request a 25% non-refundable deposit based on the provided estimate.
