  14. 14. Section 12What to Expect During the Photo ShootThe house should be shoot-ready when I arriveHi I’m Lance Selgo, owner and photographer of Unique Exposure Photography. I look forward to taking photos of your home!I want the photos of your home to be the best they can be. This requires teamwork and cooperation that will result in an outstandingonline presence when your home goes LIVE on the market.Although I would love to help you style/design your home, I unfortunately do not have the skill set required to do so. When I arriveto take photos of your property, I ask that all staging and cleaning be done prior to my arrival. To efficiently maintain my busyschedule and deliver the level of service my clients expect, I can not spend unnecessary time at the home waiting for it to be cleaned,dusted, de-cluttered, etc.Please review the previous sections for tips on preparing your home for real estate photography, and note that I amnot responsible and will not partake in any of the following duties while photographing your home: I DO NOT: • Move or re-arrange furniture • Make beds, clean, dust or de-clutter • Pick up toys or yard items • “Photoshop” vehicles, walls, damaged walls, power lines, wall pictures, cords, etc. • Touch personal bathroom supplies (shampoo, toothbrushes, deodorant, towels) Lance Selgo ・ ・ (682) 710-1683 13
