For the typical 3-storey 2000 Sq Ft Calgary home, we can complete interior and exterior photos, iGuide 360 Tour, RMS- Measurements in about one hour! For longer productions or bigger homes, we generally like to block off two- three hours for completion.
Why are AirBnb Photography prices higher than Real Estate Prices?
We understand that photo usage be confusing depending on the industry. Real Estate photos have a much shorter shelf-life compared to an AirBnb/ Short Term Rental and have a more limited usage rights in place.
Real estate photos are only licensed for marketing the specific property and must be repurchased if the property sells or is taken on by another agent. However, our AirBnb and commercial shoots offer much wider and more flexible usage limits. You’ll have the freedom to use any content from the shoot to market your property indefinitely, with the exception of commercial use.

Will the photographer assist in moving or staging the furniture?
No, the photographer anticipates that the home will be ready to be photographed when they arrive. Please take the time to arrive 20 minutes before the the appointment to ensure the home is ready. Turn on all the lights and lamps and lift the blinds if desired. Garbage and recycling bins should also be out of sight, and toilet covers should be placed down. This helps to maintain our competitive prices scheduling.
What is your cancellation policy?
Any cancellations made within 24 hours incur a $75 charge. If the photographer shows up to the property and they cannot access for a limit of 15 minutes after the appointment start time, the shoot is subject to full charge.
What kind of camera equipment do you use?
A: We use both Sony and Canon cameras and lenses. For standard shoots, we are primarily shooting with the Canon R5 and Sony A7III. For all video productions, we use the Canon R5 or Sony FX-7
