Important Photo Licensing Information

This service agreement is a limited license photo release. By contracting for a real estate photo shoot, you acknowledge and agree that the real estate photography prices include NON-TRANSFERABLE, NON-RESELLABLE rights to reproduce the photographs for all marketing purposes specifically related to the sale of a single residential property for the full continuous duration of the client’s listing agreement to a maximum of one year from date of payment, including the MRIS, real estate websites, MLS, the realtor’s social media and print advertising.

The agent is granted a non-transferable, non-resellable license for the image(s) for marketing their services in sold listing compilations and marketing portfolios for a period of one year beginning on the date of payment in full for charges relating to those photos. Photos used in marketing materials for the agent must include a photo credit immediately adjacent to the photo in the form of “Photo by Gerald C Brown Jr” and a footnote on the publication in the form of “Photos © (year of copyright) Gerald C Brown Jr” or in a manner to designate the photos in the media created by Gerald C Brown Jr if more than one photographer’s work is shown.

Photos may not be resold or otherwise transferred to those including, but not limited to: builders, architects, sellers, buyers, interior designers, stagers or subsequent listing agents. New agents must purchase images directly from the photographer and are subject to limitations negotiated with the original listing agent. Copyright is exclusively retained by Gerald C Brown Jr and images must be licensed by Gerald C Brown Jr for any use.

If the photos are of a “Model” home where they will be used to advertise more than one address, specific licensing arrangements must be made and additional fees paid in advance.

Licensing is subject to receipt in full of all charges related to the shoot. Other licensing terms can be negotiated to suit the needs of your project.
