Traveler: When will I receive the photos?
Shoot My Travel: We will send you a link with your personalized private gallery within 24-48 hours (ET) after the shoot.
Traveler: Am I the owner of the photos?
Shoot My Travel: You have the right to use the photos for personal use. You can share them, print them and hang them on your wall but you may not alter or re-sell them. Your photographer and Shoot My Travel retains the copyright of the photos.
Traveler: Can I choose the photos?
Shoot My Travel: Your private gallery will always have the best shots from your photo tour selected and edited by your photographer. Remember that due to the nature of candid photography not all shots will come out as planned but if you have any dreamed ‘must have shots’ let us know in advance.
Traveler: Will I receive all of the unedited photos or RAW files?
Shoot My Travel: We would love to provide all the unedited or RAW files but as you may know, once an image is taken it's only the first stage of the process. The second stage for your photos to have those beautiful tones and touch of magic, is by editing. It would take days for our photographers to edit all of the images shot and by that time you will be home planning your next trip.

Shoot My Travel: We will send you a link with your personalized private gallery to your email. Once you have received the email you will be able to download the photos directly to your smartphone, computer or share them with your friends and family.

Shoot My Travel: Your photos will be delivered in high resolution in .jpg format.
Traveler: Can I buy additional photos, time or print directly from the photographer?
Shoot My Travel: We ask all of our travelers to be respectful and honor the hard work we do curating our photographers and offering our outstanding service. If for any reason we find the traveler and/or the photographer are doing business outside of the platform -buying prints, additional photos or time without our consent prior the booking- both the travel and the photographer will be banned from the platform.
