Frequently Asked Questions
If you have your own business established today, you will have the option to continue to operate under your brand or fully plug in to leverage the OTBx brand. We can discuss various solutions and options to fit your needs to help you grow.
If you are an established photographer or videographer with an existing book of business, the opportunity to join our Better Together program will not cost you anything. Coming together presents a win/win situation for both of us and we will both have vested interest in your success. By joining Better Together you will be required to utilize our proprietary booking, scheduling and payment system for all work performed. Don’t worry though, you will have complete control over your own schedule.
The relationships and client base that you have is important to OTBx. We would like to ensure that you are able to help continue to nurture the relationships you’ve established in your current market. However, if you are interested in moving on or relocating, we would be interested in discussing options to support you in that effort.
We don’t want you to change anything that you are doing today. If you are making good money in your model by shooting yourself, we can support you in continuing to do just that. We have a philosophy…. “If it’s not broken, don’t fix it” – While we can’t make any promises about what the future holds, we are confident that we have solutions to help you grow and without a ceiling gap on your earnings.
In the beginning it will make a lot of sense for you to continue with your current brand. Co-branding both your current brand and OTBx for a period of time will make sense. There are many advantages to leveraging the OTBx brand and using your own. If you have an existing client base that knows you and your brand well, we would recommend that you continue to operate under that brand. It has a lot of advantages for both parties when it comes to marketing and brand awareness in general.
Yes. We understand that photographers may be at different stages of their business build. That’s perfectly fine. Whether you have a large book of business or are just starting out, we want to hear from you.
The amount that you will earn per job will vary based on the services required by our clients. For example, some projects may only require interior and exterior photos while others will require video. We offer a very competitive rate to our Talent Team of photographers and factor travel time into every job to ensure that you are paid fairly each time you photograph a property. While the exact amount of work time will vary slightly by project, we use a flat base rate model for each service required to keep it fair and simple.
Once you submit your footage to OTBx Air, our editing team will review and approve for payment. Payment will be transferred to you weekly, each Monday (excluding statutory holidays in which case payment will be made on the Tuesday). Funds will be transferred electronically to the email address you provide via e-transfer.
While providing photo or video services for OTBx Air, you will be required to have a minimum coverage of $2M commercial liability. OTBx Air has arranged a preferred rate for our Talent Team so if you don’t have coverage currently, we make it easy to obtain.
OTBx Air will notify you of each project via email. Each project will come with details such as customer name, address, map, appointment time and a list of specific photo and/or video requirements. OTBx Air will assign an appointment time for each project. You are expected to arrive at least 15 minutes before the scheduled appointment time. We require that you use our mobile app to provide regular status updates to indicate that you are on route, on site and complete.
Once the photos/videos are captured, you will be expected to upload your raw photos and raw video files to the link provided to you by OTBx Air by 11pm. Once the footage is received it will be reviewed by our editing team and packaged for our client. Be sure to send us your very best as we reward our most talented photographers with additional projects. Our team will handle final editing and will prepare video and social media package to make life simpler for you.
No. We will require that you ask before you use the footage for a personal portfolio. Once we grant permission, you are welcome to use as needed.
