USAGE

Photos, Videos and 3D are intellectual property that is protected by US Copyright law. You are hiring our company for capture services and professional editing that will be used in marketing, renting and selling of a property. The person or group hiring our company for capture services is not purchasing photos, videos or 3D content. We are licensing the usage of the finished product for a specified length of time. You can not sell, gift, give, trade and you can not recoup your cost by selling the media to any stock websites. Tagging our company on social media or giving credit for to us in a publication will not be substitution for payment to license the media.

If a separate or 3rd party wants to use the media they will need to pay to re-license the media from Ohio Real Estate Media. This includes any stagers, installers, redesigns ,builders , authors or publications wanting to use the media that they did not commission for hire.

Another example would be if a new agent from a different brokerage takes over your listing or new property management company or a new company buys out your company the new party will need to pay a licensing fee to Ohio Real Estate Media. 

Real estate for sale is for a duration of 12 months. During this time both the realtor and brokerage can use their media however they see fit to market the house including Digital and Print media. If a new agent from a different brokerage took over your expired listing it would not be fair to you or us if they used the media they did not pay for to profit and market the property. Buyers agents are welcome to use the media to promote themselves also.

Rental Property is for the duration of the landlords or corporate lease ownership.When ownership is transferred the license to use the images to market the listing expires. Rentals are a longer-term usage and help to generate consistent, ongoing revenue indefinitely. The new company will need to pay for a new capture session or pay to license the media

Business, Architectural and Commercial media is for a duration of 4 years plus fees for publications.

PROPERTY READINESS

1.Client understands its obligation to prepare the job site for production before our arrival. We are able to help move things and eliminate distractions but we are not there to be a mover

 

2.​The property must be ready for your shoot and the Clients acknowledge they are only hiring us for Media services.For General safety and liability we do not perform non media related services while onsite. Non Media related services include extensive cleaning, moving household items, moving cars, lifting heavy objects or staging.

 

3.We are not working with or alongside other contractors, providers or parties on site . This means we are not working with other photographers or videographers, stagers, landscapers, cleaners, inspectors, sellers,buyers, and other agents or brokers. This will delay our time on-site and will cause delays for the rest of our team and customers.

ARRIVALS AND SCHEDULING

 

Our team is traveling for the majority of the day to each jobsite. We may be late due to traffic, other jobs that day or for equipment failure while onsite(such as a drone crash or a camera failure).

TRAVEL FEES.

 

We will automatically book you to the closest photographer to your location. They have a 25 mile radius for travel. After 25 miles you will be charged $5 per mile one way.
