Frequently asked questions
What kind of photos will be produced?
To paint a realistic picture and create correct customer expectations, we use a "documentary" photography style. This captures your experience in a candid and authentic way.
You'll come away with a wide range of images, from atmosphere and wide views, to people enjoying your experience.
Can I use the images from the photoshoot anywhere else?
You’ll receive the final selection of images without watermarks.
You can use the images in any way you wish, from your website and social media channels to your flyers, provided you include the following accreditations:
(c) GetYourGuide, 2023
You may not use the images on other third party websites or other OTAs.
Do I need model(s) on the day of the photoshoot?
We highly recommend you to provide member(s) of your staff as model(s) on the day of the photoshoot. When you have a willing and comfortable participant in front of the camera, you will usually see better quality results and more engaging images.
If this is not possible, our photographers come briefed and trained to respectfully approach your tour participants and ask them to be featured in the images. All willing participants will be asked to sign a model release form.
Can I select my photographer?
We will assign a photographer from our wide network according to availability and specialization to match the experience you’re offering.
Once they’ve been assigned you will be informed of their name and how to get in touch with them if needed leading up to the shoot.
How many photographers will be joining?
We assign one photographer to shoot each activity / attraction.
We kindly ask that you save a spot for them during the selected photoshoot time and date.
How do you handle rescheduling?
Photoshoots can be rescheduled for free up to 2 working days before the scheduled time.
If you cancel or reschedule within 2 days, you will bear the full cost of the cancellation or the new scheduled shoot date.
We highly encourage you to closely monitor the weather conditions during the days leading up to the photoshoot and reschedule in due time if the weather conditions will be unfavorable.
How do you handle copyright complexities?
Usually, we only encounter copyright issues with attractions (such as copyrighted artworks in museums). Please flag this issue to our team early on during the scheduling process so we can try to work around the limitations.
For these instances, we will send over the final results for approval where they can give us input on which images not to include in the final selection.
When is the best time/day to have the photoshoot?
It’s your photographer’s job to capture genuine interactions and engagement between your tour participants and the sights they see. To assist with this, we recommend scheduling your photoshoot during the opening hours or operating times.
However, if this is not possible, we recommend asking your staff member(s) to model authentically during the photoshoot.
What if I need a license to photograph the sights on the tour?
If you need a license to photograph any part of the tour, we ask that you secure it before the photoshoot date.
Should the photographer need to work around any copyrighted or licensed part of the tour / activity, please inform us of any special requirements s
How will we get the rights to show people's faces in the imagery?
Our photographer will collect digital model releases from willing participants and the guide (if any).
Our photographers have been briefed to be respectful of participants and will respect the wishes of people who do not wish to appear on those images.
