Adrian Brown - Principal Photographer - Photo Editor     abrown[at]impactvisuals[dot]ca

I am a professional freelance photographer / videographer with more than twenty years experience creating visual imagery of all manner of subjects. Impactvisuals is the name I have used since January 2007, to market my architectural portfolio specifically to realtors, for them to market their listings. (I have different rates for other usage, and the images I provide to realtors may not be used by anyone else.) Through this brand, I specialize in offering high resolution. magazine styled photography for print and web use, as well as HD video. Professional photography and HD video is paramount to market your listing properly, and is superior and more practical than old fashioned, out-dated, virtual tours (360 degree panoramas). Flash driven virtual tours will not play on iPhones, iPads, Android OS's and most other tablets and mobile devices, which is how most people will view your listing. Why spend money on something most people won't be able to view? HD Video is here now and the way of the future. It will reach more potential buyers which may translate to faster sales for you and your clients. People enjoy watching video and emotionally connect to it, which means there is a greater chance of them connecting to your listing. Pan and zoom slide shows of 'still' images are not HD video, and cannot imitate true video, which is moving visual imagery usually shot at 24 frames per second. If you're paying for HD Video, make sure you get HD Video. Watch this short video clip to understand the difference. I own the copyright to all images I shoot - as outlined by Canadian Copyright Law, Bill C-11.

2018 Rates: Specific to realtors and estate agents. I edit each image in the most current versions of Adobe Photoshop and Adobe Lightroom, individually in order to offer you the best images possible. Many photographers or marketing companies batch process all images from a shoot, applying the same adjustments to all images whether an individual image needs that modification or not. Batch processing images this way usually results in over editing or badly editing specific individual images. I have different rates for different usage by home stagers; developers; builders; and architects, if this applies to you, please contact me to discuss your needs. If the listing changes hands, the new realtor will have to pay in full to use impactvisuals images. I prefer wetransfer for image delivery, please let me know if you would like to receive them via dropbox.

Without specific direction from you, I will use my own discretion to capture the best possible pictures and/or HD Video. In respect to HD Video, if you want me to make changes to the final edit after it has been saved and uploaded, I charge $50.00 per hour to do so.
(Same day payment for immediate delivery before 3am. Turn around time is up to 96 hours for payments not made the same day).

Editorial style realty shots explained:
While in many cases, standard wide angle, well lit shots of the different rooms of a real estate listing are a practical way to record the overall layout of the property, certain exclusive and other properties can benefit from 'editorial style' photography. Think of the type of images you see in glossy architecture and home furnishing magazines. Images of unique, higher end homes, should capture the special details and add a pleasing aesthetic quality, that will translate to more showings. When you carry that special listing, and need a different way to promote it for your client, consider ordering an 'editorial style shoot'. Even the term will impress your client. Read a few technical explanations on my editorial Promo card. Creative editorial shoots take 2 - 4 hours or longer to complete, depending on the property, plus post production. Please email me for my base editorial rate. Click the 'Editorial Style' link near the top of this page, or here to view a gallery of editorial style images.

Caveats:
As a professional photographer, I know what needs to be photographed and do my best at all times to fulfill your image needs. However, it is up to you to let me know any specific needs or concerns you may have, when you hire me or at the time of the shoot. Without specific direction from you, I will use my own discretion to capture the best possible pictures and/or HD Video. In respect to HD Video, if you want me to make changes to the final edit after it has been saved and uploaded, I charge $50.00 per hour to do so. In order to offer the following great rates, I need to keep to a budgeted time frame to complete all assignments and post production. Editing HD Video is much more time consuming than editing a single image, and one simple edit will take at least an hour, as the entire video must be re-saved, exported and uploaded again. The file for a three minute video is very large, and will take at least thirty minutes to save, and at least another thirty or more minutes to upload in addition to the editing time.

As a self employed freelancer, I appreciate when you book my time, but I ask clients to understand that if I am booked for you I am unavailable for somebody else. If you then cancel a shoot, it may mean that I have lost other work as I was unavailable, and have also lost your assignment. Cancellations may mean losing two assignment fees. In some situations, such as same day cancellations, I may have already driven to the area of the shoot. While the cancellation may be due to your client's or other unforeseen circumstances, I may bill you a 30% cancellation fee to for my time.

For any shoot, the property should be ready with lights on, blinds down, pets removed and people hidden.
Editing of images and video takes a further 2 - 3 hours, as each image and video clip is processed separately for best results.

Images are delivered before 3am the following day for same day payment, and video asap with 72 hours.
If clients don't have a self-branded YouTube or Wellcomemat account, the video will be hosted on the impactvisuals channel.
Royalty free music will be added once uploaded to YouTube, but if you have your own legal music you would like, I will add this in the editing process.
If you have artwork with your branding you would like inserted at the beginning and end, please forward it to me in .jpg form, 1280px X 720px at 72dpi. If you do not I will create one for use on all your videos for a one time fee of $50.00
