We wish we could control the weather! How great would that be!
We will shoot in most weather. Of course we get the best results on sunny days, but that isn't always possible.
The decision is ultimately up to you and your client. We are happy to reschedule, however sometimes that means waiting a few days longer than you planned to get your listing up. If it is time-sensitive, we recommend leaving your appointment as is.
*Note: Aerial services are subject to weather as we cannot fly in any bad weather, including high winds, light rain or snow, or other storms. We reserve the right to make a judgement call to not complete aerial services if we believe that the weather could put ourselves or our equipment in danger.
What can you do to make the photos look great?
We offer blue sky replacements on photos where there was grey sky. These help make your listing stand out, regardless of the weather!
Following our shoot, we will deliver your content via an email with a Dropbox link to your listing's folder.
We deliver your photos in high resolution, web resolution and low resolution.
Videos are delivered Branded and Unbranded. If you'd like a YouTube link for your video, please request this when booking your service.
If you ordered a Matterport 3D tour, we will provide the branded link as well as a branded embed code for your website and an unbranded link for use with MLS®.
Should you have any issues with the dropbox link, please email us right away!
Short answer - no.
Photographers are artists and therefore they are the default owner of the copyright for all content they create. This is according to the Canadian Copyright Act. Click here for more information.
We extend a license to you to use the photos/video/tours for the purpose of marketing your listing while it is on the market. This limited usage, non-transferable, non-exclusive license allows you to use the photos for digital and print marketing to promote your listing while it is valid. We also allow you to use this content to promote your business in order to gain new clients.
Photos and other content may not be shared with any third party (interior designers, architects, etc.) for commercial purposes. Should a third party inquire about using the photos, please refer them to contact us to purchase a license based on their intended usage of the content.
Photos and other content may not be shared with any other agent if they are taking over your listing unless given express permission from OneLook Productions Inc.
The answer to this is also no. You may not sell or give our content to other agents if you decide to transfer the listing or another agent approaches you to purchase the photos if they are listing it with the new owners.
If you have a colleague interested in using our content, please give them our contact information and they can purchase a license from us to use the content.
Can I give the content to the homeowners?
We do allow you to give the homeowners these photos to hold on to as sentimental value, however, they are also not to sell them or use them for any commercial purposes.
Generally, the Dropbox links will be available for 3 months. If you did not download the photos and videos originally and require them down the road for listing the property, please reach out to us and we can resend the link.
Matterport 3D Tours are hosted for 6 months. If your listing is still up after 6 months, please contact us to request an extension for up to 1 year. After 1 year, we will require a hosting fee of $100/year to be paid upfront. We do not offer pro-rated options.

Typically, the photographer you book your appointment with will be the one to arrive. However, sometimes this does change but you will be in the capable hands of one of our trained employees. When you order multiple services, it is standard that there will be two OneLook representatives on site to ensure we can be as effecient as possible for capturing your listing. We know your time, and your client's time, is valuable so we will do our best to move as quickly as possible once we arrive!
Yes & No...We do not offer discounts for single purchases, however, when you bundle our services together - that is where you can save!

Interest will be charged compounding monthly at the average bank rate + 5% from the due date until the day before the payment is received. This policy is subject to change without notice.
