CANCELLATION / RESCHEDULE POLICY

When you schedule services with us, you are reserving a valuable time slot that will not be available to others. When you cancel or reschedule the same day as your photo shoot, we have to pay our photographers for that reserved time.

While everyone understands the purpose of cancellation fees, and agrees to the terms of service, nobody likes paying them.  So we do our very best to keep you apprised about your upcoming appointment with a courtesy email at least 48 hours out – please use that time to check in with your customer.

As soon as you become aware that the property is not ready as scheduled, email office@twisttours.com so we can notify the photographer and either remove it from the schedule or set up a new appointment time.

Same Day Postpones/Cancellations/Reschedules:

If an appointment is postponed, cancelled or rescheduled the same day as the appointment, or, the photographer arrives to the appointment and cannot photograph it, then you agree to pay a fee of $100 so that we may pay the photographer for their reserved time.

  • We are going to work hard to replace the photo shoot, so we can waive the fee
  • Twilight appointments can be moved at any time without incurring any fees, unless the photographer arrives to the appointment and is unable to photograph it.  After arrival cancellation fees for twilight shoots are $100
  • Aerial appointments that are handled by our outside Aerial Provider are not subject to this policy.  The Aerial Provider may have their own cancellation policy.
  • Be sure to check the weather in advance of your appointment.  It is your responsibility to reschedule if weather is a concern!  We can replace grey skies with blue skies as an alternative for $5 per photo. As long as it is not raining hard, we can shoot interiors and exteriors.  After you receive the photos, you can then decide if you want to schedule an additional exterior reshoot on a sunny day for a reduced fee of $100 (plus any applicable trip charge) or take advantage of our Blue Sky replacement.

OTHER COMMITMENTS

It is the customer’s responsibility to ensure that the property is ready for photography at the arranged time. Photographers reserve the right to terminate the photo shoot if the property is not ready and will cause them to be delayed to their next job. A cancellation after arrival fee of $100 is applicable in this situation.

Twist Tours doesn’t handle any cleaning, dusting, or moving of furniture – liability reasons!

Twist Tours will, at the photographer’s discretion, adjust window coverings or turn on or off lights as deemed necessary to better capture the scene(s) and move small items that may be distracting in the photo. The property must be clean and presentable at the scheduled time of the photo shoot.

The homeowner shall ensure that there are no hazards to the photographer’s safety.

Pets are to be contained or removed from the property for the photography session. Often a friendly dog will be aggressive when someone enters their domain that they don’t know. The photographer reserves the right to terminate the shoot if they feel threatened in any way. The photographer will do everything to ensure pets stay inside, but are not responsible for pets that escape the property during the photography session.

Homeowners should ensure children are supervised and out of the camera’s view

Photographers will do their best that all significant aspects of the property shall be included in the tour unless the condition of said aspect has a negative impact on the tour. This shall be left solely up to the photographer’s discretion, unless specific aspect(s) of the property are specifically requested by the agent or the homeowner.

Once the home has been photographed, the service may not be canceled. The agent will be charged the full price of the package ordered. In addition, the Photographer will not retouch images in order to disguise any known defects and/or physical structures such as cracks in walls or driveways, powerlines, water towers, etc.

All photography, tour, and matterport product will be processed and sent to the customer by 6pm the following day after the photo shoot unless otherwise arranged.  Matterport, Floor Plans and Aerial products may take longer.
