Do I own the photos after the shoot?
On Copyright - Ownership
The reason real estate photography is quick is because it is meant for one time use, to sell the home. If you want to own the images and use them commercially on website or in marketing to advertise themselves ( not just that particular home), then you need to purchase commercial usage rights. Which is on average between 4&10 x times the price.. Commercial license images can be used indefinitely and can potentially earn that person or business income over and over again through advertising. Therefore they are much more valuable images to the client .
