Question: How can I arrange for a private shoot of a boat or a property? Our rates are $500 per hour for the R-22 and $1000 per hour for the R-44
Answer: Call scheduling at 561.346-2816 or Tom@BoatPix.com.

Question: Do you sell pictures online?
Answer: No. We’ve tried it and it doesn’t work for us. Sorry. We’re sorry, too.

Question: I wasn't in an event, but I saw a BOATPIX helicopter flying nearby. Did you get any pictures of my boat?
Answer: If the helicopter came right up next to you we probably have photos. If far away, probably not. We never know who is in an event or not, so we photograph everyone.

Question: I want to use my boat photo in my company advertising. Do you sell the files?
Answer: Yes. They are more expensive than pictures as you would own the image. See below.

Question: I requested a package of photos. How long does it take to receive my photos?
Answer: It takes 2 weeks for you to receive your photos in the Winter and more time in the Summer because we are busier. Provide complete and accurate information of the quickest turnaround time.

Question: How can I help you identify and find my photos?
Answer: We track photos by state registration number if registered with a state, documented boat name if registered with the Coast Guard and lastly by the boat make if it is an unmarked boat. If you are in a sailboat race include your racing sailing number.

Question: How much do pictures cost?
Answer: Helicopters are expensive and the cost is recovered in the pictures. Our least expensive picture is a huge 16”x20” poster sized color portrait picture, about the size of a 25” TV for $10 per foot of boat length. The guy with a boat ten feet longer than yours is going to pay a bit more. When we started this business we only photographed larger boats and we now photograph boats of all lengths. Our target market is 25 foot boats and pictures of $250; if you have a smaller boat you are getting a great deal. If this is out of your price range, please have someone photograph your boat from another boat which will be less costly for you.

Question: How much more are the digital files?
Answer: We don’t recommend that you buy the files as we recommend that you buy a picture and hang it on your wall. It was fashionable 150 years ago to have an oil painting of your boat commissioned and twenty five years ago we started this business to make large photographic prints to hang on your wall for a lot less money than an oil painting. Our pictures have become family portraits, too, as you are usually with your loved ones on the boat. Let us send out the package of pictures and then determine your needs when you see the beautiful pictures we send you. Regardless, its $20 per foot for one file. $30 per foot for two files and $40 per foot for all. This is a bunch cheaper than renting a helicopter and a photographer. Unless you are the manufacturer of the boat, you probably don’t need the files although we are happy to sell them to you. If you want to make a brochure, shirts, advertisements, sell the boat or make lots of pictures for some reason you’ll need the digital files. If you buy the files we’ll make you pictures at 90% off our retail so you can take advantage or our color photographic printing knowledge.
