Standard Terms and Conditions

 

Definitions

“Us” or “we” or “our” means Real Estate Pictures (ABN 15 182 454 649).

“Images” or “photographs” or “video” means all imagery and intellectual property supplied by Real Estate Pictures whether in physical form or in an electronic format.

“You” means the client, or the client’s representative.

 

Copyright

The copyright in the images photographed by Real Estate Pictures is owned by and retained by Real Estate Pictures.

Real Estate Pictures images may not be on-sold, leased, or given to 3rd party commercial entities without written permission from Real Estate Pictures.

Australia is a party to international treaties dealing with copyright protection, so our copyright protection continues to exist in most countries of the world.

 

Licence

Upon full settlement of our invoice the client is granted a licence which entitles the client (or their appointed representative) to use the images for the purpose for which they were originally commissioned, without any further royalties, eg; marketing the property for sale.

The Licence cannot be transferred without the express permission in writing from Real Estate Pictures.

Licence is automatically revoked if the client is placed into receivership or liquidation.

 

Payment

Private vendors:
Payment is required at the time of the photo shoot.

Alternatively, an invoice can be supplied, and images will be released once the invoice has been settled in full.
Note that your agent may be looking for the images the day after the shoot.   If making payment via electronic means, it is recommended that payment is made on the day of the shoot, so the images can released to your agent the following day.

Agencies:
Payment required strictly within 14 days from the date of invoice.
Late payment fees may become applicable to recover administration costs for subsequent reminder invoices.

Client’s materials

Elevated photos are included, at no extra cost, in our daytime standard shoots.
This is at the discretion of the photographer, as not all properties may benefit from elevated photos.
The mast system cannot be raised immediately near power lines, used whilst raining, nor on very windy days.
Being vehicle based, vehicle access is required. If required, clients are to arrange parking and/or access on the day.
If suitable parking and/or access cannot be provided, a return call-out will incur an additional 50% charge to complete the job, or elevated shots will be forfeited.

 

Indemnity

Real Estate Pictures shall not be liable for any legal action, claim or damages resulting from or arising out of the publication of the images or other use by the client. The client shall indemnify Real Estate Pictures against any claims and/or damages as a result of the clients use of the images.

 

Client Approval

If the client is not present during the actual photography sessions then Real Estate Picture’s interpretation of the assignment will be accepted.
