REAL ESTATE PHOTOGRAPHY

Real Estate Photography includes all the images of the session sized for MLS listings.  Images are captured with a full-frame camera and full frame wide angle lens. The wide angle lens provides the best angle to create large prospective views. Proper lighting ensures all rooms are well lit to attract homebuyers. Post-production work is completed in Photoshop and Lightroom to enhance the images with visual impact.

Turner Photography also provides Virtual Tours made from the images of the Real Estate Session.  Each Virtual Tour is a custom-designed website that displays the property address and description along with a continual slideshow with music designed to keep Buyers’ attention on the listing.

Family Portrait Sessions are photographed outdoors or at your home and are comprised of couples, children or a family group of 8 or less.  The Creation Fee is due at the time of the booking.  Prints and Portrait Enlargements are sold separately.  Proofs can be viewed in person or posted to an online gallery.  A Digital Image Package is also available upon request.  The Digital Image Package includes the Creation Fee and Digital Images from the session.  The average sale ranges from $500 to $800.

If you are here on vacation, it is recommended to schedule your session at the beginning of a vacation in case of adverse weather conditions. An alternative suggestion would be an early morning session.

PHOTOGRAPHY PRODUCTS

Photography Products include Prints and the following Portrait Enlargement Products: Wall Portraits, Canvas Board Portraits, Canvas Gallery Wraps and Metal Prints sized 11” x 14” and up. To initiate a photography order, a 50% deposit is required with the remainder due prior to package pickup or shipment. Shipping costs and 7% Florida Sales Tax is additional.

CLOTHING SUGGESTIONS

The color of the clothes should coordinate with the background. Lighter clothing looks best at the beach, and darker clothing looks best in a park or outdoor sessions. For groups, clothing coordination is key to a professional portrait. Everyone should wear same colors or coordinating colors. Avoid patterns, stripes and plaids as that will pull the attention away from the subject’s face. Clothing suggestions are discussed in the client’s pre-session consultation.

PAYMENT

Forms of payment include Visa, MasterCard, Discover and American Express.

REFUND POLICY AND GENERAL LIABILITY

If an outdoor session cannot be completed due to the weather, an alternate date and time will be determined. If that is not possible, any monies deposited will be refunded in full by check minus the credit card charges. Turner Photography is not responsible for sky conditions or extremely windy weather.  There is a five day non-refundable policy on any monies paid toward any session.

For the protection of our clients, Turner Photography retains General Liability Insurance.
