DAY OF SHOOT REQUESTS
To ensure the best results of the photo shoot, please be sure the home is photo ready prior to the scheduled shoot time. Homes will be shot “as-is”, with the exception of blinds, lights on, move of trash cans, etc. We work on a tight set schedule and time is precious. It is the agents responsibility to ensure the listing is ready for the scheduled time. Please make sure the homeowners (if present during time of shoot) are aware that we move quickly from room to room with a wide angle lens. We will turn on all lights, open blinds, and "set the scene" for each room, but do not have time to completely rearrange or wait to move items room to room. In order for the photographer to get the best angles and shots, we ask to move freely throughout the home with no distractions. We have full access to Sentri Lock Boxes, so it is not necessary for anyone to be home during the shoot. Generally, we will photograph the entire home, except the interior of garage, small closets, and utility rooms. If you would like to include/exclude any areas, please let us know prior to the shoot.
All homes need to be prepared and ready for photography. It is the responsibility of the agent to inform us as soon as possible for rescheduling. A photo session that is rescheduled or canceled after 8pm the day before will be charged rescheduling fee of $49.00. Once a photographer has arrived at a property, the order may be canceled/rescheduled, however there will be no refund and full price will be charged. Reschedules will be subject to Design Eyes availability.
If Design Eyes is at fault, ex: glares, technical issues, etc. the updates will be taken at no charge. Exterior updates for weather (Gloomy sky, snow on the ground, etc.) or 1 Interior Room only will be charged at $49.00 All reshoots/updates beyond those stated (due to changes such as, paint, decluttering, new furniture, rearrangement of furniture, etc.) will be charged the minimum package fee of $125.
