Who owns the photos?

This helps us keep our prices down and ensure the work we do meets a high standard. We provide a limited license to use the images for your intended use (real estate sales or rental property marketing) For this reason, we ask that you not use the images for purposes outside your license or share the downloaded images with other firms (including contractors, vendors, etc.) Please direct any license related questions to email@example.com
Can I share the photos?
A: We want you to be able to use the photos in any way you like to sell/ rent your listing. To that end, you are welcome to share a link to your online gallery to absolutely anyone. We also place no limits on the services and venues you may use to promote the property. We do ask that you not share downloaded images with non-licensed parties. Please just send them to us at (firstname.lastname@example.org) for licensing. This protects the value of your license and our copyright.
Can you split one photoshoot into two visits?
A: We would be happy to make multiple trips to the same property but we would have to bill for the additional trip. As a professional photography service, our time is valuable and we cant block time on our schedule that isn’t accounted for.
What if I want just one drone photo?
A: We have designed our drone package to appeal to the vast majority of clients. We include a number of images at the same cost as we would charge for one image in order to provide a variety of options for you to choose from. You are welcome to use any or all of the images we provide.
Do you offer discounts?
A: We may, from time to time, offer special incentives. However, as a rule, we keep our everyday pricing as low as possible. We are glad to consider special packages for large projects involving multiple properties. For inquiries about such projects contact us at email@example.com.
