Service Agreement - brenemanphoto

Service Agreement 

By ordering services from Bill Breneman Photography (also known as "BBP") you (also known as "Client") agree to the following Service Agreement for digital imagery:   

Client acknowledges

(A) Client will pay for the photo shoot in full prior to the shoot taking place (Applicable to Commercial and Real Estate brokers/agents)

(B) Client has unrestricted permission to use photos for listing and marketing purposes (understanding photos on MLS are often syndicated to other real estate websites and listing aggregators). Images will not be transferred to a third party or sold;

(C) A nonexclusive agreement with BBP - meaning that BBP's images can be used for promotional purposes for an unlimited period of time (except when marketing a residential or commercial real estate listing - in which case, the images can be used as long as the listing is active and promoted by the specific agent BBP produced the images for); 

(D) Due to various editorial/publication preferences, a client is permitted to edit/alter images, following initial delivery of edited images by BBP - and shall hold BBP and any successors, legal representatives and assigns harmless from all claims of liability resulting from or associated with the use of the material;

(E) Client will not provide images to a third party (i.e. home owner) or to an agent who takes over an expired or withdrawn listing.     

Copyright Notice 

Bill Breneman Photography is the copyright holder, and retains all copyrights expressed and implied otherwise for all made images. Copyright is not and will not be transferred to any other/third party, such as designers, stagers, builders, etc. Client also warrants that they have authority to enter into this agreement for the property, and shall indemnify and defend BBP in the event of any litigation arising due to this agreement.  Copyright shall accrue to the benefit of his/her successors, legal representatives and assigns. 

Property Owner Policy

Property owners/buyers may desire copies of images and secure them from BBP only. BBP will make images of the property available for the property owner through a specific gallery set up through BBP's website

Digital Downloads

Digital downloads are available at full resolution (or sized down) - either through this website, Google Dropbox or regular e-mail.  Download instructions can be provided upon request.

Shoot Requests 

The property owner shall ensure that there are no hazards to the photographer’s safety. If shooting an MLS listing, the photographer will work with agents and/property owners regarding pets/animals to keep them removed from the photography project, but the photographer is not a pet wrangler. If pets will be an issue, please make a note of it when ordering services.

BBP will be photographing through the entire home/structure. BBP does not usually include closets as individual images, but if you would like those included please let BBP know prior to the shoot. BBP works on a set time schedule for every shoot. Time is a precious commodity. It is the agent’s responsibility to work with the property owner to ensure that the listing is ready for the photo shoot at the arranged time. Also, please do not schedule in-home tours, visitations or have contractors working at the home during the photography appointment. 

Cancellation/Postponement Policy

Bill Breneman Photography understands that properties and structures may not be ready for shooting as expected. It is the responsibility of the agent or marketing representative/manager to inform BBP as soon as possible for rescheduling. A photo session that is rescheduled or canceled after 8pm the day before the scheduled shoot will be charged a $50 rescheduling fee, plus any additional expenses, should the project involve travel/lodging/food (etc.) outside of Central Oregon (Deschutes, Jefferson and Crook Counties) when traveling to, and staying near the shoot location. Reschedules will be subject to BBP's availability.  

Weather Policy

There will be times services cannot be completed due to weather. In those circumstances, the decision about shooting is up to the client. If the client chooses to proceed with photography, BBP will provide the best images possible. If additional outdoor photos are required on a better weather day, our standard fees will apply. No reschedule fee will be charged in the event of bad weather. Reschedules will be subject to availability.  

Payment Policy

Full payment will be received prior to the beginning of the shoot (Commercial and Residential Realtors only).  Credit card payments can be processed on site by "Square" or a check can be made out to "Bill Breneman Photography" prior to the session. 

Thank you for taking the time to read this service agreement. If questions arise feel free to contact BBP at: 971-732-2690 or e-mail at:
