Copyright: James Elledge Photography is the copyright holder of the images. The copyright of an image is not transferred to any other party unless a specific written agreement is made.
Photo Rights and Usage for Real Estate Photography: We retain the copyrights as is standard practice in the photography industry. You purchase a single-use, non-transferable, non-exclusive image license. The original agent who paid for this service has permission to use these images on any electronic or printed form of advertisement for the promotion of that property. This is a non-transferable license, meaning you, as the licensee, may not sell, give or loan the photos to any other party. You do have wide leverage to use them for your marketing and promotional needs, however. This license is also non-exclusive, meaning the copyright holder may sell multiple licenses for the same images. The photos may also be used by the client’s parent company for the sole purpose of marketing the specific property photographed.
Images cannot be sold to another agent who takes over an expired or withdrawn listing. Failure to pay for the images will result in a copyright infringement/violation. You will be asked to remove the image from any electronic or printed form of advertisement. Failure to stop using them will result in legal action.
Builders, stagers, designers, and others who wish to use images taken by James Elledge Photography, should contact us for specific licensing information.
Payment: All agreed upon fees and expenses are due within 10 days of receiving the images. James Elledge Photography reserves the right to cancel, postpone, or refuse to schedule subsequent photoshoots until the account is made current.

Cancellation Policy: We kindly ask for 24 hours notice if you need to change or reschedule your appointment. However, we understand that unforeseen situations arise when listing a property, so please let us know if the situation is beyond your control.
