Real estate photography - Adam Carney Photography

Photo Licensing Agreement

Adam Carney Photography / Adam Carney ( PHOTOGRAPHER ) retains the copyright for all digital images created in the course of doing business and all images on this website. The commissioning real estate broker/agent ( CLIENT ) is granted a license to use property images, for which they have paid, for the promotion of that property in any media while the CLIENT manages the listing. The Realtor may use images for which they have paid for personal advertising in any media. Images must not be edited/altered by anyone other than PHOTOGRAPHER, except for minor cropping and resizing only. 

CLIENT may NOT give, license, or sell images to anyone. This includes the property owner, another broker/agent/Realtors, builder, architect, stager, or any other vendor. Disregarding these terms will result in copyright infringement/violation ( Digital Millennium Copyright Act of 1998, 17 U.S.C. §512(c) ) and may result in legal action. PHOTOGRAPHER recognizes that the CLIENT does not control how images are shared by NWMLS and syndicated to other property listing sites (Zillow, Trulia, et al.) and CLIENT is not liable for such use beyond license expiration.

 PHOTOGRAPHER may re-license real estate images for commercial use by developers, builders, designers, vendors, or other parties. This will be executed with a separate agreement between PHOTOGRAPHER and licensee. 

* Licensing terms for custom photography projects with other commercial clients are tailored according to the project estimate and can be found in that document as well as on final invoices.

Payment & Delivery

Payment for real estate imaging services is due at time of service. If other arrangements are requested they must be made in writing at least 48-hours before scheduled time of service. In some cases payment may be made after services but before final image delivery. For these situations, watermarked, low-res digital proofs will be made available for approval first. Upon approval, full payment will be made before final images are delivered to CLIENT.

When full payment is collected at time of service, PHOTOGRAPHER agrees to deliver final images digitally within 24-hours of photoshoot start time. For other payment arrangements, PHOTOGRAPHER agrees to deliver final images digitally within 24-hours of receipt of full payment.

Cancellations & Weather

Cancellations must be made at least 24-hours before scheduled photoshoot start time. Real Estate Photoshoots canceled with less than 24-hours notice will be subject to a cancellation fee of $50.

 Weather-related cancellations are subject to the terms above. Some weather conditions can adversely affect exterior home photo quality or prevent safe drone flight. In the event of unfavorable weather, the interior photos will be photographed as planned. Alternate arrangements will be made for the exterior, or aerial re-shoot, and additional fees may apply unless full cancellation is made at least 24-hours in advance. When the weather is dry but blue skies are not present, PHOTOGRAPHER will provide sky replacements on all primary exterior home photos at no additional charge.

Property Condition

Photoshoot prep guidelines are available here.

The CLIENT will ensure that the listing is clean and ready for photography at the time of service. PHOTOGRAPHER is not responsible for cleaning, dusting, changing lightbulbs, or moving of furniture but may adjust window coverings, move small items or turn on/off lights as necessary. CLIENT shall ensure that there are no hazards to the photographer's safety and that pets are confined out of view. PHOTOGRAPHER will not retouch images to disguise known defects and physical structures such as wall/floor blemishes, driveway cracks, power lines, etc.

Additional Terms

-Travel fees are waived when a property address is measured to be 30 miles or less from the business address of the PHOTOGRAPHER. For locations beyond 30 miles, travel fees will be calculated at the time of the photo shoot booking. 

-Final images are backed up by Adam Carney Photography and are available to be re-delivered as long as the client may need. It is recommended that the Client makes a local backup of the images to use for the duration of the listing. Once the Client’s contract with the homeowner has ended (property is sold or picked up by another agent), the license expires, so the Client should delete their backup at that time. If the Client needs images for his/her professional advertisement, they can be downloaded from their page on the website. Have more questions? Please Contact Us to discuss.
