Terms of Hire
When you hire Gold Coast Property Photography to photograph your property, you need to know what you can expect and also, what is expected of you to make sure the session you are purchasing is completed to its highest potential. By reading these Terms of Hire, you will know what is required both by you and what you can expect from me in delivering your images and videos.
1) Copyright © is retained by Jamie Auld on all photography and videography delivered by Jamie Auld or Gold Coast Property Photography as a company.
– Copyright is retained by Jamie Auld (photographer) and images are licensed to you (the vendor) for the intended use agreed on at the time of booking.
– All images are licensed to one end client, be it personal or to an agency. (See licensing below for more details)
– The photographer holds the right to use any and all images in promotional work, social media, advertising and may use generic images for other clients without notice. The photographer also holds the right to resell images at a later date to agents and/or vendors upon request.
– Additional charges for post-processing may be charged at $20/image if extensive work is required. To ensure no additional charges are applied, it is requested and recommended that all properties be presented as per the description in the Property Presentation Checklist. Extensive editing of the images will not be made available when the images could be used to mislead or falsely advertise a property; eg: repairing extreme damage to property, removing unsightly facilities, etc.
2) Gold Coast Property Photography guarantees that all images are the following:
– All images will be accurately portrayed in relation to room size, colour balance and brightness to the best of our ability. All equipment used in these shoots is carefully selected to help show each room accurately.
– Lenses used in each session will not excessively enlarge room sizes, as it can be linked with misleading marketing and legal issues. As such, limits on the wide angle lenses are applied to keep rooms as accurate as possible.
– Vertical and horizontal alignment will be correct. eg; no leaning walls, excessively warped furniture, etc.
– The property will be photographed as is and the images will not be extensively manipulated to remove items. For hygienic and safety reasons I may refuse to move personal products and other items that may devalue the photograph.
– Please refer to the Property Presentation Checklist for full details on how to most effectively present your property. By following this checklist you also qualify for my Quality Service Guarantee. Failure to properly prepare your listing before the photo shoot will void this guarantee as I cannot spend excessive amounts of time helping to guide you what to adjust/remove/clean.
– All images will be delivered fully edited in both High Resolution and Web-Ready jpegs only unless requested otherwise. Web-Ready images are defined by standard guidelines provided by websites such as realestate.com.au and domain.com.au.
- All original images will be backed up on local hard drives and stored for up to a maximum of 3 months from the time of the session.
- Finalised images will be uploaded and delivered via web link and available for up to 3 months from the time of the session.
3) All rights and copyright of the images/media remains with the photographer. Payment for photography grants you a license for the right to use them. To clarify this, all available licensing details are below. Anyone who downloads and uses images from the internet illegally will also be required to pay for their own licensing under one of these categories in order to continue using the photos. Failure to make payment on your license will result in all images needing to be taken offline and removed from all advertising at your own cost.
– End User/Standard Real Estate: A license to use the images has been purchased by a single End User, usually a real estate agency/agent or vendor. The images can only be used for the purpose of this specific real estate listing and cannot be used for other listings of the same floor plan, contractor portfolios or any other means. This license may also cover commercial/shop-front real estate for sale/for lease listings however, does not include portfolio sessions, new developments, large commercial agencies and showroom style ‘off-the-plan’ properties.
– Relicensing Existing Images: If you love the images I have provided a client and you would like to purchase them for your own listing, images are then relicensed to you on a price-per-image system. Prices for each image vary depending on the type of image it is and the intended purpose of the images. Please contact me directly with details on the photo shoot so I can provide a quote for relicensing the images.
– End User/Extended Real Estate: This license is similar to the End User/Standard Real Estate; however, is designed for properties that are going to be marketed by multiple agents or agencies. Typical for projects that are being sold or leased ‘Off the Plan’ where a particular property is marketed across a wider platform than a normal property.
– Portfolio License: Typically for custom designs, new developments and showrooms. Custom quotes are provided for these types of licenses, please visit the link below and contact me via my other website. Due to the nature of these types of sessions, most Portfolio License photo shoots include an End User/Extended Real Estate license is included to allow for complete marketing capability. Please contact me for all New Development, New Build and Showroom style photo/video sessions via www.jamieauldphotography.com.au
4) Bookings are confirmed either via phone call, text or email. If a photo shoot is cancelled without warning (eg, property is inaccessible for the photographer, property is unpresentable), a call-out fee may be applied. In the event that weather is extremely poor and unworkable, no charge will be applied to reschedule the photo shoot to the next available session time.
