RELATIONSHIP OF THE PARTIES

The Photographer is an independent contractor, and shall not be deemed to be an employee of the Client. No agency, partnership, joint venture, or employee-employer relationship is intended or created by this agreement. Neither party is authorized to act as agent or bind the other party except as expressly stated in this agreement. The Photographer and the photos or any other deliverables prepared by the Photographer shall not be deemed a work for hire as defined under Copyright Law. All rights granted to Client are contractual in nature and are expressly defined by this agreement.

 

AT THE SHOOT

Your input is important when choosing what to photograph. If you, or an authorized representative cannot be at the shoot, the Photographer will use his best judgment and experience to decide how best to photograph the property, and this shall be deemed acceptable by the Client.

Properties should be properly staged and cleaned before the Photographer arrives.

CANCELLATIONS/RESCHEDULING

Please notify the Photographer within 24 hours if you will need to cancel the shoot. The full shoot amount will be assessed if the Photographer arrives at the property to find the shoot is cancelled (including denied access to the property and the property not being ready for photos).

There will be no fee assessed for rescheduling due to bad weather. If it is raining at the time of the shoot, the Photographer will continue with the interior shots and return for the exterior shots at another time (no additional charge).
