JOSHUA LONG PHOTOGRAPHY TERMS AND CONDITIONS
By booking an appointment with Joshua Long Photography you agree to the following terms and conditions.
Joshua Long Photography requires a minimum of 48 hours notice for all photography services – last minute requests will be addressed individually. When scheduling an appointment please include the desired date, listing address, time, and any other important information about the property. After both parties have agreed on a date and time, the appointment will be considered “booked.” Please use the preparation guide to ensure that the home is clean and staged. All properties will be shot “as is.”
Joshua Long Photography is happy to provide services for properties located outside of 40 miles of the normal service area of Winston-Salem, Greensboro, High Point area for an additional fee.
AT THE SHOOT
The client, homeowner, or authorized representative should be present during the shoot. If the client or representative are not available, our interpretation of the property will be deemed acceptable. Joshua Long Photography will make a reasonable effort to exclude unwanted or unsightly objects before shooting each room – this does not include making beds, de-cluttering, moving furniture or personal hygiene items. Your input is important when choosing which rooms will be photographed and the best angles for each one. It’s understood that without your input, we will photograph the property using our best judgment.
CANCELLATION AND HOME ACCESS
A cancellation fee of $50.00 will be charged for any shoot cancelled within 24 hours of a “booked” appointment. If the client, homeowner or authorized representative are not available to provide access to the home during the allotted shooting time Joshua Long Photography will consider it a cancellation and the full rate of the shoot will be billed.
AFTER THE SHOOT
After the initial shoot Joshua Long Photography will digitally process the images. This can include compositing, basic color correction, retouching and preparing master files for final delivery.
DELIVERY AND PAYMENT
Once post processing of the images is done the client will receive a link via email to review proof images and an invoice for payment. Once the invoice has been paid, Joshua Long Photography will release two .zip files that will contain all of the images (one for MLS images and one with Hi-Res images) to the client via a private Dropbox file folder within 24-36 hours of payment.
