Professional Real Estate Photography is consistently receiving top ratings in virtually every online list on how to make money as a professional photographer. The real estate business is exploding, and consequently, the demand for professional real estate photography has also gone up. The purpose of real estate photography isn't to sell homes to people, but it is to show the potential buyer how beautiful and unique the home is to them.
By way of example, one of my favourite clients is the San Francisco Giants baseball team. Their season ticket holders want to have professional real estate photographs of their favorite players, so they ask me to take the photographs with them during home games. I have a great deal of fun doing this, but my primary focus is taking the identical lens on each different photo, so that everything appears uniform. If I were to take the same lens on all the different photographs, it would appear unnatural.
When folks come to real estate professional photographers, they need a cohesive photograph package. My basic job is to suggest a model, and show the client how to use their light. Most professional real estate photographers currently use some type of lighting setup to light their clients. It's just something that makes their photos more professional looking and visually appealing. I usually won't do the lighting myself unless the client requests it. I think it's important because it shows professionalism.
There are many other aspects of professional real estate photography that I'm not going to touch on here. I can talk broadly about white backgrounds, black backgrounds, and lens choices. However, what I'd like to share with you today is the reason why people decide to use a real estate professional photographers to get their real estate photos taken.
There are many advantages to using photographers to take your house buyer's pictures for you. First of all, most photographers will charge you only a flat rate fee for the entire photography shoot (not per picture) even if you employ them for several different visits. Another great benefit to hiring professionals to picture your home buyers is they already know precisely how to approach each person in your photo shoot, so you won't have to waste time trying to figure out how to pose or how to hold somebody perfectly.
The last reason that people choose to have their house photos taken by professionals is because the results speak for themselves. You really can see what a excellent job the photographer did just by taking a look at the photos. When you're trying to promote your house with real estate photographs, selecting a great real estate photographer is certainly the way to go.
