CANCELLATION, RE-SCHEDULING, NO-SHOW, AND INCLEMENT WEATHER POLICY
If cancellation or rescheduling is necessary, please do so with a minimum of 24 hours notice. Any shoot cancelled or rescheduled within less than 24 hours but greater than 2 hours of the start of the booking appointment is subject to a fee of 50% of the total rate for the booking. Any shoot cancelled or rescheduled within 2 hours of the start of the booking appointment will be subject to a fee of 100% of the total rate for the booking. Unless otherwise agreed upon, arriving late beyond 30 minutes to an appointment, not providing a lockbox code, or otherwise not providing access to the property for the shoot for the duration of the booking time, will be considered a cancellation, and will be subject to a fee of 100% of the total rate for the booking. Every effort will be made to accommodate a re-scheduling. In the event of inclement weather, preventing photography, videography, drone flight, or other services from being completed, a new date will be scheduled at the earliest available time, at no extra cost. Sky Sight Aerial Solutions Inc. shall solely determine what constitutes inclement weather that is significant enough to require re-scheduling. In the event of significant overcast weather (i.e. on gloomy days), we may continue to provide our media services, however, we will provide complementary digital sky replacement for one or more exterior photographs, as deemed appropriate by the photographer.
The Client is responsible for ensuring that the property is completely ready to be photographed before the arrival of our team. If the property is not ready to be photographed and our team is required to wait on-site, the wait time will be charged at a rate of $150 per hour. All areas and rooms of the property should be completely prepared for the shoot (we highly recommend contracting a professional staging company for best quality results) and once our team starts, we ask that no furniture or items be moved (including between rooms). Due to safety and liability reasons, Sky Sight Aerial Solutions Inc. employees will not move, clean or prepare, or assist in moving, cleaning, or preparing, any furniture or other items at the property. Once the shoot has been started, our team will photograph the property as is. If the property is determined to be unprepared, the client can decide to reschedule the shoot, in which case a fee of 100% of the total rate for the booking will apply. To help prepare for your shoot, please refer to our helpful preparation guide. In order to complete the project in the most efficient manner and to provide the best possible results, we ask that a maximum of 1 person be present at the property during the booking time (this can be either the realtor or the owner, not both). Please note, that during the shoot, we may ask that the person at the property to wait outside the property or to wait in an area of the property not being actively photographed by our team. If the person at the property is not cooperative (for example, in the case of tenants), our team may choose to terminate the shoot, and in this case a fee of 100% of the total rate for the booking will apply. Sky Sight Aerial Solutions Inc. employees will under no circumstances tolerate any disrespectful or abusive language or actions.
