*Typical day still photography shoot turn around time is by the end of the next business day after a shoot occurred; however, due to possible unexpected circumstances, we require up to 2 or more business days to fulfill final project delivery requirements.
Please arrive 30 minutes before your appointment as we do not stage, but only shoot as is.
We are unable stage properties due to insurance liability issues. Photos will be taken of the property as is, upon our arrival. This is also due to time scheduling, Photographers are only responsible to shoot photos of properties that are “shoot ready”. Because of liability reasons, photographers will not be able to handle or move furniture, small objects, etc.
Overtime fees will be charged if working over one hour per appointment, if deemed necessary. Please prepare the property before we arrive so we may start as soon as the set appointment time. Please stage prior to our photographers arrival.
“SHOOT READY” TIPS
Is your property “Shoot Ready”?
Make sure, by following these guidelines:
ONLINE HOSTED VIRTUAL TOURS
Photo Usage and Online hosted virtual tours remain active and online for whichever ends first; The duration of the life of the active MLS listing, OR up to one (1) year from the virtual tour creation date. Tour reactivation and renewal may be purchased for a service charge.
We license out rights to use photos, not just the original photos themselves. This keeps our realtor pricing lower, and helps to keep our photo library more available to be reused again.
MEDIA USAGE RIGHTS
Ownership vs. Usage Rights
All media we produce is the sole property of Coastal Home Photography, llc. (CHP)
This means that when a real estate agent hires us to shoot photography, they are not purchasing the ownership rights for the photos themselves, but rather the usage rights to use the photos for that particular property MLS listing. All photography usage rights purchased by real estate agents are considered one time use, per each MLS listing for the duration of the life of the MLS listing. This helps to keep our prices low.
Rights per listing are non-transferable and non-tradable. Media delivered from CHP may not be sold, resold, traded, or exchanged in any way without first consent from CHP.
If you would like to use the photos for another listing or agent, you or another agent will need to contact our office and purchase the rights to use those photos for the new property listing. All rights not expressly granted hereunder are reserved to the CHP, including but not limited to all rights in preliminary materials and all electronic rights. For purposes of this agreement, electronic rights are defined as rights in the digitized form of works that can be encoded, stored, and retrieved from such media as computer disks, CD-ROM, computer databases, and network servers.

Aerial photography is not considered stock photography. Complimentary, free, bonus amenity stock photography only counts toward on-site amenities.

Aerial Photography Usage Rights
When the Client purchases aerial photography, they are purchasing the rights to use them for that specific listing. Rights do not transfer to other nearby listings, even if they are in close proximity to the original listing location.
Aerial photography is not considered stock photography. The free, and complimentary amenity stock photography that we provide from on site amenities are a bonus as part of our tour packages.
Aerial photography is generally not re-used for secondary purposes. Each aerial session that is added onto ground photography sessions, are generally re-shot as new photography; this is due to the nature of changing environmental features.
If the Client would like to use Aerial photography again for another listing, the usage rights may be purchased upon request for usage on their new MLS listing. Terms and conditions apply. Please contact our office for assistance.
