services are included in the price quotation?
Price quotations include image capture, image processing and final
delivery. Much of the necessary work is done during the image
processing stage, which constitutes the 'behind the scenes' aspect
of a project. The pricing you receive includes basic image
processing after photography. Specific requests for extensive
retouching are a separate fee. The high quality panoramas and 3D
models from artifacts created by this service receive extensive
attention to perfecting the details.
Virtual galleries are 3D environments in the computer. Pricing for
their use requires a quotation for 2D art or 3D model placement,
as they are not sold 'empty'. Client-created content may be
accepted for inclusion in virtual galleries.
Electronic project delivery is used with all services, typically
via Dropbox. For a nominal fee, CD/DVD/Flash Drive delivery is
What are you buying?
The deliverables produced by this service include licensing for
their contracted use. There are no monthly fees or subscriptions
for access to panoramas, panoramic tours or images. 3D models may
require hosting to support interactive viewing using a 3rd party
service. This is a technical consideration, not a licensing
consideration. 3D models may also be placed and used within other
3D environments, such as a virtual gallery. The copyright of
images created by this service remain with this service.
Additional use of the deliverables beyond the original contractual
specifications may require a separate licensing contract and fee.
Images created by this service are not licensed for distribution
through stock photo agencies.
Travel for on-site services is embedded in quotations for projects
within a 30-mile radius (approximate) from 91325. This includes:
Los Angeles (north of downtown)
San Fernando Valley
Travel to other locations is available and the travel rate is
quoted separately on a project-by-project basis.
Rates are subject to change.
Deposits and Cancellations
Project deposits are 50% of the contracted price.
Note: If the project requires
additional 3rd party services, those charges are payable in full,
in advance, and may, or may not, be refundable, subject to the
terms of those 3rd party providers.
How are payments made?
Payments can be made via check or through PayPal. This site
provides a payment link, which leads to a secure PayPal portal.
If a refund is issued, it will be issued in the same form as

the original payment.
Are some projects billed hourly?
Some projects are ongoing with requirements and outcomes that may
not be possible to bill as a single project. In those
circumstances, distributed billing will be proposed to mutual
For photography work the images are delivered in the specified
target format and size (e.g. TIFF, JPEG, HTML). Raw images are not
delivered; raw images are unsuitable in their native form for
direct output and remain with the photographer.
For individual panoramas and panoramic tours, the output is a
collection of files in a precise arrangement for presentation on
the Web. These files must remain together as a set to function
correctly and are delivered with the required organization.
Additional tours using the original photographs, but with
different navigation and added content, are available for separate
service fees. Please note that panorama and panoramic tour
modifications require specialized software that is not provided.
For 3D from artifact projects, the final model with applied
texture is delivered in the specified format (e.g. OBJ, DAE, JPG,
PNG) and polygon count. The individual images used to build the
model and texture are not delivered. Please note that 3D model
modification and viewing requires specialized software that is not
For virtual galleries, final images with embedded artwork or
products are delivered as still images, or as panoramas, or as
panoramic tours. The environment models and textures used to
create the virtual galleries themselves are not delivered and
'empty' rendered virtual galleries are not sold.
