Can the photographer complete a job without a realtor or homeowner present?
Absolutely, we handle both vacant and lived in properties that are on lockbox on a regular basis. All of our photographers are familiar with lockboxes and know how to use them. For Sentrilock lockboxes, we will need a one day code. You can either include it in the order details or email us at email@example.com once you create it.
How far in advance to I need to schedule a shoot?
We can schedule a shoot with as little as 24 hour notice. However, we do ask that you give us as much notice as possible to ensure that you can be scheduled in the timeslot that you may request. The more advance notice you give, the easier it is to get the exact time slot you would like, but we will do our best to accommodate your schedule in every situation.

How will the photographer know my personal photography perferences?
There is a designated area on our booking form where you can specify if there are areas that you would like the photographer to focus on or avoid. Typically we do not photograph closets, utility rooms, extra storage units, or garages unless specifically requested. If you would like one or more of these areas the be photographed for one or all of your listings, be sure to request such the designated area, and we will also notate your preferences in our system.
How long does a typical photoshoot last?
Depending on the real estate photography package you have selected and the size of the property, your appointment can take anywhere from thirty minutes to an hour and fifteen minutes. To ensure that your appointment runs quickly and smoothly as possible, please make sure that the house is clean and photo-ready.
How will I recieve my photos and/or video?
We will send you a download link from email@example.com where you can review and download all of your photos.
