HIRE A REAL ESTATE PHOTOGRAPHER
Scheduling a photo shoot with Pro Property Shots is easy. To request an appointment, you will need to fill out our contact form. We have appointment times available Monday through Friday. Our last time slot of the day is 3 pm. Evening appointments are reserved for twilight photo sessions only.
- We only work with agents, brokers and real estate related companies.
- We do not shoot for individual home owners.
- Appointments are on a first come first serve basis.
- We do not “hold” available time slots.
- Appointment times may be booked up to two weeks in advance.
We have morning and afternoon time slots available daily. If your home faces east, we recommend a morning appointment. If your home faces south, a morning or afternoon time slot is appropriate. If you home faces west, an afternoon photo session would be the best choice. For north faceing homes, please feel free to contact us to discuss your options. Because we shoot multiple homes in a single day, it is important that your property be “photo-ready”, when we arrive. In order to service all of our clients in a professional manner, your appointment includes an allotted amount of time for your photo session. Please review our tips on how to prepare the home for your photo shoot.
- Your home will be shot AS-IS.
- The property must be photo-ready when we arrive.
- We do not provide any cleaning, moving or home staging services.
- Failure to have your home photo-ready may impact the number of photographs taken.
- Your appointment includes a specific amount of time for the photo session.
- The agent or agent’s representative should be present for the photo shoot.
SCHEDULING A TEAM PHOTOGRAPHER:
Team photographer photo shoots are subject to availability and team photo styles will vary. It is highly recommended that the agent be present for the photo shoot to communicate any special shot requests to the team photographer. Team photographer photo shoots must be paid in advance before the photo shoot will be scheduled/confirmed. Team photographers cannot accept payment.
If your photo session is with Jack, he will process your credit card at the end of your photo shoot.
For team photographer photo shoots, aerial services, and video services, we will email you an electronic invoice via Square. You may pay your electronic invoice with any major credit card. We accept Visa, MasterCard, American Express and Discover. Payment must be received in full before your appointment will be scheduled and confirmed. We do not accept checks.
IMAGE EDITING and DELIVERY:
All of our packages include our in-house Basic Image Editing, which includes straightening, cropping, adjusting the color, contrast, brightness, saturation, etc. If you require Advanced Image Editing, such as compositing/layering/masking or localized adjustments, please contact us.
After payment has been received in full, images are delivered next day via electronic download. Twilight images and their associated daytime images are delivered within two business days. Delivery times for custom packages will vary. A delay in payment will delay the processing and delivery of your images. For all other services, please allow three to five business days for delivery.
TRAVEL FEES and PARKING:
Pro Property Shots offers real estate photography in Los Angeles via our local service area. Our local service area includes all properties that are located less than 30 miles from Marina del Rey. Properties located outside our local service area will incur a travel fee. Travel fees are calculated via Google Maps and are based on the distance from 4712 Admiralty Way, Marina del Rey 90292 to the client’s property. If guest parking or free street parking is unavailable, clients will be responsible for any parking fees incurred by photographers to park in a nearby parking lot.
CANCELLATIONS and RESCHEDULING:
If you need to cancel or reschedule your appointment, we request at least 48 hours notice via our contact form on this website. You will receive a cancellation confirmation email from us within 24 hours. If you do not receive a cancellation confirmation email from us, that means we did not receive your cancellation request and your appointment is still reserved. Please contact us immediately. If you give less than 24 hours notice, you will be charged a $25.00 cancellation fee. There is no cancellation fee for rescheduling your shoot due to bad weather. If you repeatedly cancel or reschedule appointments, we will require a $75.00 non-refundable security deposit to reserve your next photo shoot.
NO SHOWS/LATE SHOWS/SCRAP SHOOT:
If you do not show up for your appointment or if you show up so late that the shoot has to be cancelled, you will be charged a $100.00 trip fee that must be paid in full before we can reschedule another shoot. If we arrive at the property and are unable to photograph the home due to lack of electricity, lack of interior access or other issues, the shoot will be cancelled and you will be charged a $100.00 scrap shoot fee that must be paid in full before we can schedule another shoot for you.
Any return trip to the property for reshoots will incur a fee. The minimum reshoot fee is $155.00.
In order to avoid a reshoot: 1. Please be sure the property is “photo-ready” and is cleaned and styled to your specifications. 2. Make sure weather conditions are to your liking. 3. It is strongly recommended that the agent be present at the photo session to communicate any specific shot requests to the photographer.
