TERMS & CONDITIONS

GALLERY FOR BASIC PLAN

The "Basic Plan" is an excellent choice for almost any small to midsize property. Get good image quality, composition, and fast turnover at a minimal cost.


SINGLE PROPERTY




This photography plan is designed for good image quality, composition and fast turnover at an exceptional value . With my experiance, I can effectively shoot a property in a short or reasonable amount of time, keeping the client or home owner on schedule with their busy day. Shooting each scene will be brief (depending on conditions), so it is crucial that the homeowner, realtor professional or staging company have the property or space ready for photography at the scheduled time of arrival. Each space (for photography) will be selected by the photographer, unless, the home owner or realtor professional has already planned the flow of the shoot ahead of time, in keeping the pace moving in a timely manner.



TOP

GALLERY FOR PREMIUM PLAN

The "Premium Plan" is recommended for properties or spaces that require the utmost attention. Each space photographed is professionally and meticulously staged, lighted, and edited to show the full potential of the property.


SINGLE PROPERTY




This photography plan is designed for perfection. Every property or space is unique, and because of its status, location, position, condition, illumination, weather, desired/undesired exterior/interior views and features, client/agency reputation, the property or space may require special attention (as in professional lighting, assisted staging and optimal editing) in order to achieve the look of the image in showing the properties full potential.

  • After scheduling a shoot, an email will be sent to the client/agency or home owner (in charge of payment) with information confirming the date, time, location and agreed photography plan.

BASIC PLAN (by request, prior to booking):

  • This photography plan is designed for good image quality, composition and fast turnover at an exceptional value . With my experiance, I can effectively shoot a property in a short or reasonable amount of time, keeping the client or home owner on schedule with their busy day. Shooting each scene will be brief (depending on conditions), so it is crucial that the homeowner, realtor professional or staging company have the property or space ready for photography at the scheduled time of arrival (all spaces will be photographed as is). Each space (for photography) will be selected by the photographer, unless, the home owner or realtor professional has already planned the flow of the shoot ahead of time (in keeping the pace moving in a timely manner).

  • The basic photography plan does not include any assisted staging, lighting or special pre/post production requests (because of time or workload constraints).
    Pro-Lighting is used to balance the differance between indoor and outdoor exposure, which is usually a concern with windows, doors or large open spaces where outdoor light comes in (facing the camera lens). Most times without proper lighting (during the day), shooting towards outdoor openings, the captured image may suffer from harsh exposure and contrast problems that is not easily fixed in post. My premium photography plan includes professional lighting to combat these issues.

  • The agent or client must be present during the duration of the photo shoot (to avoid any complications).

  • During post production, the photographer will have full control of selecting the appropriate images in order to stay on schedule.

  • All images will be processed by way of image fusion software (along with fundamental editing). Using this method enables the photographer to keep the workload to a minimum, enabling your images to be delivered in a timely manner (and in keeping production and workload costs low).

  • All image files will be sized for print output (high res) and web content (low res).

  • Your digital image files will be delivered within 48 hours by way of an online storage service (DropBox). A download link will be email to you (or to any publication) in order for the images to be received.

  • An invoice will be emailed to you for your records.

  • The basic photography plan is only available within the los angeles county area, and is only available at the photographers discretion.

  • All images © Tom Hunter Photography, all rights reserved.



PREMIUM PLAN (default photography plan):

  • This photography plan is designed for perfection. Every property or space is unique, and because of its status, location, position, condition, illumination, weather, desired/undesired exterior/interior views and features, client/agency reputation, the property or space may require special attention (as in professional lighting, assisted staging and optimal editing) in order to achieve the look of the image in showing the properties full potential.

  • Upon arrival, I will perform a walk through with the client or home owner in determining the proper or desired spaces (of the propery) to photograph. Shooting each scene may take up to 30 minutes (depending on the complexity of the shoot). If needed, the photographer will assist in staging a space in order to enhance the look of the image, but it is also very imporant that the home owner or staging company have the property or space ready for photography so that the photo shoot will move along in a timly manner. During the shoot, it is not uncommon for me to ask the client, home owner or person in charge for their opinion before capturing a scene, this is not being unprofessional, just being smart. The client or home owner may want something photographed specificlly, and with a little bit of communication, everyone will be happy at the end of the day.

  • It is recommended that the agent or client be present during the duration of the photo shoot (to avoid any complications).

  • Images can take up to 72 hours for delivery (either because of prior assignments, or the weight of the current assignment), but usually I get them out sooner. Each image is edited optimally (in photoshop) to show the prospective buyer the properties full potential and beauty, perfection can not be rushed.

  • All image files will be sized for print output (high res) and web content (low res).

  • When editing is complete, your digital image files will be delivered by way of an online storage service (DropBox). A download link will be emailed to you (or to any publication) in order for the images to be received.

  • An invoice will be emailed to you for your records.

  • The premium photography plan includes travel within the los angeles county area, or at the photographers discretion, travel outside this area is subject to additional travel fees.

  • All images © Tom Hunter Photography, all rights reserved.



TRAVEL:

  • Tom Hunter Photography is based in Sierra Madre (adjacent to Pasadena), and offers service for the Los Angeles county area. Travel beyond this point is subject to additional travel fees.

  • Some of my photography services (for the Los Angeles county area) may all ready have a travel fee included in the advertised price (like my default “Premium Plan” - a full service package), but in order to be more competitive and give the best possible or affordable rate to my clients (or potential clients), some of my services must be broken down (like my “Standard Plan” - an à la carte service package), so that each jobs workload will be charged accordingly (as in: gas expense and time traveling to and from the location, equipment expence, workflow or time spent for the total job).

  • If a travel fee has not already been added to the offered service plan (which will be stated in the details), then an $0.85 per mile travel fee will be added on to the already posted rate (this is for the Los Angeles county area only). Further distances traveled (outside of the Los Angeles county area) will be subject to all travel expenses (this includes room and board), and a deposit may be required.

  • Parking is to be provided by the client.



PROPERTY WEBSITES:

Photographer’s invoice will serve as Client’s receipt for work performed and services rendered.

  • If a property is not ready for photography (upon arrival), the client may fall short of the alloted images offered (because of the photographers busy work schedule), and the client will still be liable for the full dollar amount of the scheduled work. If the photographer is able to spend addition time at the location (to fulfill the amount of images needed for the scheduled work), an additional fee of $60 per hour will be charged to the client. If the property is not ready for photography AT ALL, then a fee of $150, plus travel will be charged to the client. In order to continue the photo shoot, a new appointment will have to be scheduled (as a new job). Please understand that these costs are set in place to protect the photographers potential loss of business.

COMMERCIAL PHOTOGRAPHY:

  • Commercial photography is photography created with the intent of making the end user money; essentially, photography for commerce and business.

  • Commercial photographs are generally images of buildings, models, merchandise, artifacts and landscapes that are used for promotional purposes in websites, electronic devices, magazines, newpapers, books, reports, advertisements, corporate brochures and leaflets, menus in cafes and restaurants, catalogs, etc. In commercial photography, the entire photo shoot is devoted to the product being photographed. The lighting, styling and background is all taken into consideration.

  • There are many details to cover when assessing the cost for a commercial photography assignment, so there is no flat rate for this format of photography. I can say that each assignment cost will involve a creativity, production and usage fee. By evaluating the essential necessities to accomplish a successful shoot, a price or quote may then be suggested.
  • Please call for information - (626) 825-2694, thank you.


DIGITAL FILE QUALITY:

  • Tom Hunter Photography is committed to providing high quality services. Unless otherwise specified on the reverse side of this Agreement, Tom Hunter Photography may deliver, and Client agrees to accept, the Image(s) encoded in an industry-standard data format that Tom Hunter Photography may select, at a resolution that Tom Hunter Photography determines will be suitable to the reproduction technology and use(s) for which the Image(s) is licenced.

    Tom Hunter Photography uses cameras and monitors that are colour calibrated to industry standards. But due to variances in other monitors, software and computer platforms, the Image(s) may display differently on other monitors.

    It is Client’s responsibility to verify that the digital data, including colour profile, if provided, are suitable for reproduction of the expected quality and colour accuracy, and that all necessary steps are taken to ensure correct reproduction.
