Please contact us via our contact form, by phone (727) 776-0564, or send us an email us at bellrealestatephoto @gmail.com no less than 48 hours before your preferred shoot time. The shoot will take between 1.5 and 2 hours. Most homes can be shot in 1.5 hours although some shoots may take longer.
The homeowner or someone authorized by the homeowner (the agent) should be present at the shoot to give access to the home and to discuss any special considerations such as what should be included or excluded in shots. Our goal at the shoot is to provide quality photos that include a front exterior, back exterior and all the major rooms such as living room, dining room, family room, kitchen, master bedroom, master bath and bedrooms. Powder rooms, small bathrooms, utility rooms or garages are not a shooting priority unless you give us direction otherwise.
Please make sure pets are contained during the shoot. Pets are never included in photos and need to be out of the way during the shoot.
Cancellation, No Show and Inclement Weather:
If cancellation or rescheduling is necessary, please give us a minimum of twenty-four (24) hours notice. Any shoot cancelled within 24 hours of a confirmed appointment is subject to a $75.00 cancellation fee. The full price of the shoot will be charged to any cancellation within four (4) hours of the scheduled time. Arrival by the owner/agent beyond thirty (30) minutes of an appointment (unless access by key-box is available) will be considered a cancellation, and will be billed at the full rate of the shoot. Every effort will be made to accommodate rescheduling. In the event of inclement weather prohibiting exterior photography, a pickup shoot of the property exterior will be rescheduled at the earliest possible time.
Once the photos are shot they will be edited and optimized for quality and uploaded onto a private gallery. Once the final images are chosen and full payment has been received, your images will be delivered to your email via Dropbox link. You will be able to access and download your images from there.
