Furthermore, you certify that the property owner has given permission for J FUERST to access the property. Works and media which are produced on location are owned exclusively by J FUERST and licensed to purchasers based on the license agreement or the license agreement associated with the particular services booked.

I agree to indemnify and hold harmless J FUERST, its trustees, directors, officers, employees, contractors, and agents, from any and all claims, actions, suits, costs, expenses, damages and liabilities including attorney fees as a result of this project and the use of premises.


Service & Production Requests:

To ensure the best results of the service requested, please be sure the property is ready prior to the scheduled service time.


Fireplace Enhancements:

Double check with homeowners to insure fireplace is functional. If not functional, DO NOT select enhancements. J FUERST is not responsible for false advertising if Fireplace enhancement is selected YES when a fireplace is not functional.


Rooms, Angles, and Photo Readiness

Rooms and angles photographed are left to the discretion of the photographer unless specifically requested prior to or at the shoot.

Property should be photo-ready upon the photographer's arrival. While J FUERST are mindful of composition and minor detailing, photographers are not responsible for unwanted objects in photos. For liability reasons, J FUERST do not handle any cleaning, dusting, or moving of furniture or decor.

Pet Policy: Please have pets tucked away in a room not to be photographed or have them removed from the property during the shoot. J FUERST will work with clients in regard to the property owner’s pets. If pets will be an issue, please make a note of it when services are ordered.

I also understand that J FUERST and its photographers are not responsible for communications with my client through the process, nor for ensuring that home is photo-ready before the photographer arrives. If a homeowner or agent is present and desires to continue staging and/or making home photo-ready, it is the photographer's sole discretion to determine whether the property is able to be photo-ready and photographed within the allotted time for the shoot, based on the listed square footage of the home. If home cannot be photo-ready within the allotted time.. A $100 cancellation fine will apply for any Bundle or a $60 cancellation fine will apply for any A La Carte Services, and the shoot will need to be rescheduled.



In cases of inclement weather and other hazards, J FUERST and its photographers will determine if it will be a hindrance to producing a top quality product. If its sole discretion, J FUERST cancels the shoot and reschedules a shoot for any reason, there is no charge. There is also no charge for cancellations by client up to 24 hours before the first bundled service or up to 6 hours before the a la carte service. However,

  • $100 cancellation fine will apply to the Bundle service if the shoot is cancelled by the client less than 24 hours before the time or the shoot; In the event of an onsite issue causing more than a 30 minute delay, J FUERST will need to late cancel and reschedule the shoot.
  • $60 cancellation fine will apply to the a la carte service if the shoot is cancelled by client less than 6 hours before the time of the shoot; or the photographer is unable to gain access to the property at the scheduled time, or if the house is deemed not photo-ready by JFUERST or it's photographer on site.

J FUERST Bundles

J FUERST Bundles are intended to be captured all on the same day, as there are multiple services in each bundle. J FUERST reserves the right to split the bundles solely upon our discretion, in case of emergency, or due to weather. In these rare occurrences, J FUERST will be in communication with the affected clients well before the shoot time if this is the case.


On-site issues

It is important that you or the homeowner is reachable during the appointment and a window of time before after the scheduled time. There are infrequent issues that can arise that you will want to be aware of and make decisions about. Below are some examples of the types of things and what we tend to do in absence of customer response.

• Property can't be locked or secured - we will notify you or any person we have contact info for immediately about the issue to resolve the situation. If no one can be reached after 15min of waiting time, we must leave the property.

• Car in driveway - we will notify you immediately. We do our best to "shoot around" it so that you have workable angles. We will also shoot typical shots with it present in the event that you would like to have retouching done on the shot to remove the car at an extra charge.

• Home not close to photo ready - we will notify you immediately. In minor cases, we can do "light staging" by moving or adjusting things to make shots look better. But in some situations the volume of things to adjust are too much. This is a situation where we will reach out to confirm what you would like to do. If we cannot reach you, we will continue to shoot the property as-is.

COVID-19 update: we do not move anything in the property at this time.



Listed Square Footage

J FUERST and its photographers will verify listed square footage of the property to make sure that it matches the amount specified on the booking page. If different, JFUERST will adjust up or down in price brackets according to the correctly listed square footage for the property.


Turnaround Time:

Creating quality content takes time. Once on site, J FUERST will need 1-4 hours depending on the services requested. Delays that may arise could affect or jeopardize the production schedule and turnaround time for delivery.

  • Customer adds additional services or features (add-ons) after booking their appointment
  • J FUERST finds a meaningful square foot discrepancies during our auditing process between actual footage and what was used for booking


Any unpaid for travel fees associated with the service location for each provider in attendance

For example,

If the customer estimates the home to be serviced at about 2200sf during booking for our FusionTech Photography [1601-2500sf] but the actual listed square footage is 2754sf we will move your shoot to the correct service, FusionTech Photography [2501-3500sf], and automatically charge your card for the difference of $20. If there are any travel fees associated with the service location, this will be assessed as additional charges on the last card used as well. Conversely, If the listed square footage is audited at a bracket cost less than what it was originally estimated to be when booked or additional service add-ons were not able to be accommodated, we will automatically refund for the difference. Finally, if a customer adds an additional service via phone call or email such as an earlier delivery option, neighborhood highlight, extra amenity space, etc., we will automatically charge the last card used for these add-on services.
