Real Estate Tips
I will start out with real estate because that is what I have been doing most lately. I take these photos very serious. Unlike the other types of photography, for me, real estate photography is all business. Some analysts say over 90% of people start there home search online. This means that my photos are your first showing. Below I list the top 3 items I look for on my workflow so you know what to expect.
First – Work with the owner / realtor and understand the property features that makes it marketable and special.
Second – Understand what is the best time to photograph the property. Most of the time early-mid afternoon generates the best natural lighting, but there are many exceptions.
Third – Work with a Real Estate Staging Professional to get both the interior and exterior properly staged for the shoot. What any stager will tell you is that you want your potential buyers to project themselves into the home, so you want to limit highly personalized items of the existing resident (Limit Photos, Collegiate, Sports Team Decals, Political Items, suggestive / erotic items, etc.) unless central to the home design. Obviously you want the furniture arranged and no clutter (mail, dishes in the sink, dog bowls out).
