Under current copyright laws, the copyright of any photography remains with the photographer unless specifically agreed upon. BFFotos LLC retains all rights to photos taken of properties. We license the use of the images to the listing agent of the property at the time the photo is taken. The license of use is extended to the agent for the amount of time that the property is for sale.
Photographs taken by BFFotos LLC are not to be used for any purpose other than the marketing of the property listing. Agents may use the image for any other medium (marketing of agent's services, calendars, etc).
Photographs taken for an agent cannot be passed on to another agent should the seller wish to change real estate agents unless the contracting vendor was the seller. If the home owner pays us for the licenses, then they can transfer the images to different agents for the purpose of marketing their home. The new listing agent will need to contact BFFotos LLC. We do not allow photos from a shoot commissioned by one agent to be used by another agent. BFFotos LLC requires that the new listing agent purchase one of our packages, and we will do the property again. We realize that the real estate profession is a competitive business, and we do not want to damage our relationship with any customer by licensing work they had commissioned to a competing agent.
We are fully committed to providing the best service possible to our customers. To that end, we are extremely flexible to how our customers use our images. We want to work with you to meet your needs.
