Scheduling & Policy Information
Scheduling and Contact Information
Requests for photography appointments should be submitted through the "Book a Shoot" online request form on the mpaigetaylorphotography.com website OR via email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please include as much detail as possible when emailing.
We will reply back within 24 hours to verify the date, time and location of the shoot.
Once both parties have acknowledged the date and time of the appointment, the appointment will be considered “booked”.
Next-day requests are difficult to schedule, cannot be guaranteed and are subject to a $25 additional charge.
At the Shoot
The Client is responsible for the presence of an authorized representative at the shoot to approve the Photographer’s interpretation of the project. If a Client or Brokerage representative is not present, the Photographer’s interpretation shall be deemed acceptable. The Photographer will make a reasonable effort to remove litter, stray objects, etc. from the rooms; however please note that this does not include things like making beds or arranging furniture. Agents are expected to have the property staging and cleaning completed prior to the photo shoot. All properties will be shot “As Is.” Your input is important when choosing the best rooms and angles to photograph. Absent your input, the Photographer will use his/her best judgment and experience to decide how best to photograph the property.
After the Shoot
After the photos have been made, the Photographer will complete basic digital editing (unless otherwise specified) and format the final photos for print and web.
The photos will be delivered via a Dropbox link emailed to the Client (a Dropbox account is not needed to access photos). Clients can expect to receive the link to the photos within 24-48 hours of the photo shoot, unless a different time was agreed to in advance.
Photos for print are 3000 pixels on the longest side, with a resolution of 300 ppi (pixels per inch), saved in the Adobe RGB color space. (Photos can be saved as CMYK upon request.)
Photos for web are 1000 pixels on the longest side, with a resolution of 72 ppi, saved in the sRGB color space.
Cancellation, No-Show, and Inclement Weather Policy
If cancellation or rescheduling is necessary, please do so with a minimum of 24 hours notice. Any shoot cancelled within 24 hours of a booked appointment is subject to a $50 Cancellation Fee. Arriving late, beyond 30 minutes, to an appointment will be considered a No-Show, 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 preventing photography, a new date will be scheduled at the earliest available time.
