2 – 3 days for Residential projects and 7-10 days for commercial projects. Expedited processing is available upon request.
Total time varies per project, but it typically takes 2-5 hours for residential projects and 4- 8 hours for commercial projects. Larger projects such as resorts, schools, etc can take multiple days to shoot. It also depends on whether it's a virtual tour, property photography services.
Simple, make sure the property is clean, each shot location is vacant, and all lights are on.
While our rates remain the same, the total price depends on the size and complexity of your project. Use our Instant Quote builder to calculate the cost of your project regardless if it's a virtual tour, property photography, or aerial photography service.
We can usually schedule residential projects within 24 -48 hours. Commercial projects usually can be schedules 48 – 72 hours.
We do not invoice you before or during the shoot. Only when the shoot is complete and the total images are recorded, usually same or following day. We ask that payment is received before delivery of final virtual tour and high resolution still images. Your tour will remain in sample mode and photos in low res with watermarks until payment is received.
When a 360 virtual tour is in sample mode, it has limited functionality and a "Sample" watermark on the screen.
An image is watermarked with our semi transparent Invision Studio logo and delivered in a much smaller size than the originals so that it cannot be loaded into the un-paid client's marketing material or shared as their own.
We usually set the payment terms at 50% on initial draft images/virtual tour. Remaining amount on completion of the job.
Simple, we disable your virtual tour and erase your property photos. Any payment will be no refundable.
Contracts are only required on long term, multiple property deals or projects over QAR 8500.00
We do not use any lighting for our property photography, 360 virtual tours. The quality is greatly enhanced when using natural lighting and HDR.
HDR (High Dynamic Range) is when a series of photos are taken at different exposures ranging from very bright to very dark and then blended together to create a perfectly lit image. There are in turn no dark shadows or over exposed windows and everything is balanced.
Yes, we try to shoot any exteriors at dusk or during the first hour after sunset (we call this blue hour) before the sky is too dark to pull light from. Any and all interior images can be taken at night as long as the room has lights in it.
It depends on the property. If you are going for a bright, cheery feel then daytime shots are better. If you would like a warm, elegant feel then we recommend night shots. Take into consideration the type of shoot as well, whether it be 360 tours, aerial photography services, or property photography services.
Please turn all TV screens and computer screens off and keep fireplaces on. We will Photoshop any screen images with whatever you would like in post production.
We prefer the cement and landscape to remain dry and natural, but if you would like to it is best to do this during sunset/dusk so that the water does not dry up rapidly.
Less is more. Although completely vacant properties are not recommended at all, the less clutter the better. Keep décor to a healthy minimum.
Typically not. However, if it is a commercial property (Restaurant, Office Building, Retirement Resort, etc.) that usually has people buzzing around then yes, we would recommend having models. However, everyone participating must sign a model release form.
A model release form is an agreement signed by each individual in the photo shoot to allow us to photograph them and use their images for marketing and public material. Don’t worry, we have model release forms that we can send for you to print and have signed.
Yes, if you don’t want any people in the shoot, please close down those areas during that time. We can provide very specific time frames that we will be in each area if you would like so that you would only need to keep each area closed for a short period of time.
After the shoot, whether it be 360 photography, architectural photography, we send the invoice with an ETA to be paid before delivery of final projects. We then perform post processing and produce the 360 tour in which we will provide to you for review. Once reviewed, we perform any final adjustments and send the final virtual tours and photos.
Light touch ups are provided at no cost.
We recommend trying your best to add whatever décor or furnishing you can as empty spaces do not translate well in photographs.
Obviously, we recommend having your landscaping in top shape for the shoot.
We ask that our customers are curious with their request and only use it when necessary. If the request is made, we place it above the non-time sensitive projects in our queue.
Your welcome to take down any personal pictures and photos. However our technology automatically blurs and faces.
