Terms of Service
Payment is due on or before the day of the photo shoot. We conveniently accept cash, check and Apple Pay.
Cancellation, No Show
As a professional, we understand that situations arise in which you must cancel or reschedule your appointment. Cancellation or re-scheduling requires a minimum 24 hour notice. A minimum charge of $75 will be charged for cancellations less than 24 hours. If we arrive and the home is not ready to shoot, or the property is not accessible, a cancellation fee of $75 will be incurred.
Inclement weather preventing safe travel may require rescheduling and is not subject to a cancellation fee. If weather conditions preclude exterior photography, interior photography will proceed at the discretion of the agent. A follow-up shoot for exterior photography will be scheduled as soon as possible and in some cases incur a $50 exterior re-shoot fee.
Important Photo Licensing Information
By contracting for a real estate photography shoot, you acknowledge and agree that the real estate photography prices include NON-TRANSFERABLE, NON-RESELLABLE rights to reproduce the photographs for all marketing purposes specifically related to the sale of a single residential property for the full continuous duration of the client’s listing agreement to a maximum of one year from date of payment, including the MLS, real estate websites, the realtor’s social media and print advertising.
The agent is granted a non-transferable, non-resellable license for the image(s) for marketing their services in sold listing compilations and marketing portfolios for a period of 2 years beginning on the date of payment in full for charges relating to those photos. Photos used in marketing materials for the agent must include a photo credit immediately adjacent to the photo in the form of “Photo by Lynda Coffey” and a footnote on the publication in the form of “Photos © (year of copyright) Lynda Coffey” or in a manner to designate the photos in the media created by Lynda Coffey if more than one photographer’s work is shown.
Photos may not be resold or otherwise transferred to those including, but not limited to: subsequent listing agents, builders, architects, sellers, buyers, interior designers, stagers or vendors. New agents must purchase images directly from the photographer and are subject to limitations negotiated with the original listing agent. Copyright is exclusively retained by Lynda Coffey and images must be licensed by Lynda Coffey for any use.
If the photos are of a “Model” home where they will be used to advertise more than one address, specific licensing arrangements must be made and additional fees paid in advance.
Licensing is subject to receipt in full of all charges related to the shoot. Other licensing terms can be negotiated to suit the needs of your project.
