Availability and Scheduling

Preparation and The Photo Shoot
Photography works best when the home has been prepared beforehand so that our photographers can concentrate on photographing. Photography does not include any staging or editing of furniture. Photography is considered 'documentary' and we photograph what we see. We have no design sense or ability to determine if 'it looks good'.
For the best results residents and pets should leave the property for about 1.5 hours, longer for video production or Matterport Tours.
Matterport is a company, a camera, and a process to create 3D virtual tours. This gives buyers the experience of walking through the home from their phones, tablets, or laptops. Matterport captures beautiful HD images with the 3d tour. The camera records spatial data that is used to create a 3D computer model of the interior of the home. The process produces a web-enabled tour that you can share, embed on your website or have at showings on your personal device to show potential clients. With the spatial data Matterport also has the option to create professional scale floorplans of the parts of the home scanned.
As a service provider we have very little control over any of Matterports technology. The service is offered as Matterports technology allows and the tour will be presented as Matterport chooses. Technical difficulties with the Matterport service will be relayed to Matterport for solutions.
Delivery and Payment
Photographs are digitally delivered by 2pm the next business day. Friday photoshoots are delivered the following Monday by 2pm.
Personal or Business Check at the start time of photography is the preferred payment method.
