You agree to provide at least 24 hours notice, by voice or cell phone text, if you wish to cancel or reschedule a confirmed appointment for a tour photo session (shoot). If such notice is not received, REALPix retains the right to charge a late fee of $50.00 to be paid within 30 days.
Additional fees may be incurred. These include: travel outside of our normal service area, parking fee, late fee, no-show fee, etc. The charges will be billed to client as charged to REALPix.
Clients of REALPix are responsible for the following when the home is to be photographed:
• That the property is available to the photographer at the confirmed time of the appointment.
• That the property is clean, uncluttered and ready for photography.
• That the owners will remove or contain any pets.
• That the photographer will not be at risk of injury, death or inconvenience while photographing the property.
The photographer will photograph the property “as-is”, whatever the condition of the property when the photographer arrives.
The photographer will not risk injury to themselves or any other person or animal nor risk damage to any part of the property or contents.
The photographer will not be required to wait while the property is made photo ready.
The photographer nor REALPix is not responsible for the weather conditions at the property at the time of the appointment.
The photographs will be done using the existing conditions.
If the client requests that photos be redone under different weather conditions, or different time of day, further fees will apply.
If the client, agent or seller is not pleased with the resulting photographs of the property because of the condition of the property, contents or the property not being ready for photos, the property may be reshot, however, reshoot and travel fees will apply.
We strive for a 24 hour turnaround on our Photography & Virtual Tour Packages but sometimes it may take longer, depending on how many photos were taken in your photoshoot. Shoots on Friday will receive final photos on Monday. All of our photos are hand edited by our editors to ensure quality, colour correction and clarity. The photo guarantee applies for photos being delivered to the client digitally through email. Requests for the photos to be delivered on CD, DVD or other physically recorded hardware falls outside the 24-hour guarantee. If a custom URL is requested for the tour this may delay the link being available by 48+ hours and a time guarantee will not apply. The tour will be hosted for one year from the date posted. The tour and photos will remain hosted and will only be deactivated at your request. Additional charges will apply for tours hosted past one year.
A digital PDF file of the feature sheets (if that is part of your package) will be provided to you within 24 hours of the published photoshoot. Any details, logos or other items that you wish to have added to the feature sheet are required before the appointment time. Should you require additional changes after the final proof, or in the case that you delete the file, additional charges may apply.
It is the responsibility of the client to ensure their email server is able to accept the file sizes and that the senders email address is in their contact list to avoid the message being filtered as junk or spam. The guarantee time will be considered met by the time stamp of the sender’s email from REALPix.
Clients of REALPix agree to accept the photo choices made by the photographer at the time of photography, unless the client specifies photo locations and specifics prior to or during the appointment. These choices are based on the best ability and judgment of the photographer.
It is the policy REALPix not to remove, retouch or in any way modify any structure or content of any property using photo editing software from photographs.
This policy may be waived when applied to structures or contents that are not permanent (for example: garbage cans, temporary signs, paint marks) and will be modified before the property is sold. This is to prevent the end-user from being deceived as to the actual condition of the property. Additional fees may apply to such post-production work.
Should photographs not meet our standards of quality in representing a property, we will reshoot the property at no charge.
If the client, agent or seller request additional photos or services because of weather or seasonal changes, or request substitute or additional photographs be taken, additional fees may apply.
