Unable to Start Services
The client and/or realtor are solely responsible for the preparation and condition of the property where the services are to be performed. If the Anittec360 Photographer on site determines that the site is not properly prepared; can not access the property; or that additional preparation of the property will delay the photographer, Anittec360 reserves the right to cancel the appointment and charge a $50 cancellation / reschedule fee.
It is our policy that our photographer not stage or move anything on the property, however our photographer will at their own discretion, adjust minor items such as window coverings, pillows, turn lights on, turn fans off as deemed necessary to better capture the scene and move small items that may be distracting in the photo. The Realtor and/or property owner needs to walk through the entire property to ensure it is ready for our services. This would include ensuring all lights are on and ceiling fans are off. Please review our Property Preparation Checklist to help with the preparation of the property before our photographer arrives.
Photographer will do their best to ensure that all significant aspects of the property are photographed unless the condition of the aspect has a negative impact on the property. This shall be left up to the photographer’s discretion, unless specific aspect(s) of the property are specifically requested by the agent or the property owner.Once the services have been performed for a property the services can not longer be cancelled.
Once the services have been completed on a property, the services may not be canceled. The photographer will not retouch images to disguise any known defects and/or physical structures such as cracks in wall or driveways, power lines, etc.

Further Realtor Final Product Usage Rights
Your MLS may claim that by uploading listing photos to the MLS site the agent transfers ownership and/or copyright of the photos to the MLS. Court cases have shown this is false. The agent can not transfer the ownership and/or copyright because they do not own the copyright. Copyrights can only be transferred via a signed document. All works produced for the Client may be used by that Client for general marketing associated with the current sale of the photographed property in accordance with local MLS rules. Marketing in larger publication or as a special feature in print requires that photos are marked with the following copyright notice near the photos printed: “Copyright ©Anittec360″. Copyright in work (photos, videos, floor plans and other artistic and intellectual property) shall be owned entirely by Anittec360.
MLS services just want to protect themselves and their members and no one wants to spend the time and money to MLS services to fix their rules as long as they don’t violate the photographer’s copyright. Typically we ignore the false claim of the MLS in the area of copyright.
Some photographers may not discuss licensing with you. This may be either because they haven’t taken the time to or they don’t intend to re-license their final products. In any case please don’t assume that a lack of discussion about ownership means that the agent owns the final products. You must always check with the photographer before giving your final products to anyone.
Many real estate photographers expect to license their final products to other parties. Perhaps the stager, the architect, and interior designeer or another real estate agent. Please do not give away or use your final products for anything other than their intended initial use and your license to use them.
Photographers own the final products they create. So when you hire a real estate photographer to take photos and provide other services of a property you are paying for a temporary license for one specific person (the agent or client) to use those final products for a specific purpose (advertise your listing) for a specific length of time (the duration of the listing.)
