Frequently Asked Questions

What areas do you serve?

I serve Nelson, Castlegar, Rossland, Trail, Kaslo, Balfour, Creston, Salmo, Slocan Valley & surrounding areas. I’m also available for travel assignments to locations further afield such as Nakusp, New Denver, Revelstoke, Cranbrook, the Columbia Valley, and the Okanagan. Any properties within the Nelson city limits are billed at my standard rates. Properties outside these limits are billed an additional $0.50/km.

How much advance notice is required to schedule a shoot?

I like to receive at least 48 hours advance notice but may be able to book a next-day appointment depending on my schedule.
Please get in touch for my up to the minute schedule.

How long will you be at the property for?

For real estate photos, as an estimate, I’ll typically be on-site at the property for 5 minutes per image requested. Commercial images are more involved and require longer on-site. As an estimate, 25-35 minutes is needed per image requested. Commercial twilight exterior images are the most involved and can range upwards of 90 minutes per image on-site.

How and when are the photos delivered?

All real estate photos are processed and delivered to you within 48 hours of the shoot. Commercial images each take 3-5 hours to process, so please allow me extra time to deliver. My preferred method of delivery is uploading and sharing a private folder either via DropBox or Google Drive. Real estate photos will be provided in multiple size formats optimized for use on MLS, websites and print. Commercial images will be provided in maximum resolution, unless otherwise requested.

May I use the photographs for Magazine or Newspaper advertising?

Yes. Real estate photographs are licensed to you for the express purpose of marketing the property and remain available to you for the duration of your listing agreement. I’ll provide you a non-transferable license that expires with the listing agreement. Commercial images never expire. The copyright for all images remains the sole property of PropertyPhotos.ca

How and when do I pay for the photos?

I accept cheque, Visa, Mastercard, Paypal and Email Transfer. I will provide you an invoice and payment is due at the time the photos are delivered to you.
