Real estate Photos Compared
Photo 1: The agent has snapped this picture trying to hide the cars but in fact has chosen the wrong angle of the home too.
Photo 1: Professional real estate photographers will always move the cars and shoot an 'L' shaped home from its longest point of the angle.
Photo 2: This is a common mistake 'driveway shot'. Notice how you cannot see the roof of the home. It looks like a 2D Cardboard cutout
Photo 2: A longer lens chosen by the property photographer and standing further away has improved the shape and included the gardens.
YOUR PHOTOGRAPHY QUESTIONS ANSWERED
How long does it take to have my home photographed?
The time taken to shoot a home will always depend on the number of photographs being taken and how presentable the house is. An untidy, messy, cluttered home is always going to take longer to photograph. To give you a rough idea of the time, it would be fair to say that 5 photographs should take around 30 minutes. This can be achieved faster if everything is in its place and the rooms shape up well.
Can the photographer move my furniture?
Most properties being photographed will have to be analysed by The professional photographer when we visit your home. Not all rooms to be photographed are going to be balanced well with regards to furniture placement. Real estate photographers will often shift furniture allowing the scene to look much better.
Bright coloured furniture can be somewhat distracting therefore requiring it to be removed altogether. A real estate photographer may shift these items to space within the room that is less offensive to the eye. It is also not uncommon to move items within a kitchen and bathroom areas to help minimise clutter and to give the impression of open space.
How do you know a good property photographer?
You know when someone offers good real estate photography when they take the time to check every detail before taking the photograph. They also adjust curtains, blinds and shutters to make sure nothing is out of place. The theory should always be that as long as the photographer’s eye can see more detail than the online viewer, the photograph should always be a saleable one. A good photographer will always explain themselves to vendors and tenants. They should always ask before moving anything. And their photos will WOW, every time.
Where do you find a real estate photographer?
Finding the right property photographer can be a challenge. Many larger companies employ untrained staff purely to save money on more skilled photographers. Looking at online advertisements and real estate websites will give you a fair idea of the quality of images used in Property Marketing.
You could simply call these real estate agents and ask to refer their photographer, do an online search and check ratings and reviews. Most photography companies are going to display their best photographs on their website so it's a bit of an unfair display.
The best thing to do is to ask the photographic company to send you images from the last 5 jobs. This at least will give you an up-to-date current view of their photographic style and quality.
Why is the photographer use a flash to photograph my home?
Flash photography within the real estate industry can help the editing process. Flash is generally a bluish light while incandescent lighting within your home can be yellow and orange. By flashing, the photographer allows the editor to see the true real colours of things like your carpet, your wall colour, furniture colour etc. The Flash also balances inside of the home with the same brightness as outside of the home making the editing process a little more precise just that better quality
Where do I locate the best photographer for my home?
The biggest and highest-selling real estate agents generally will use the best photographers. Cheap real estate agents will always end up with very low-quality photographs and low-quality printing making a very poor marketing campaign. By following successful real estate agents they will lead you to the best photographers and the best property marketing in Sydney
Can you trust real estate photographers to find the right angles?
The problem these days is that bigger companies tend towards profits and not the quality of work. They employ anyone willing and give them a couple of weeks training and send them out to earn money. They usually butcher the marketing of an unknowing realtor. In my experience as a Sydney real estate photographer over the past 15 years, commercial and real estate photos can take some time to master. When I train a junior photographer I tell them the same information each time.
It takes 50 properties photographed before your eye is reasonably well trained but it will take 200 properties photographed before you begin to feel the right angles. Real estate photographers and architectural photography require a different approach depending on what is trying to be achieved. After years of property photography, they become very good at capturing the correct angles every time.
Can you trust real estate photographers to find the right angles?
Most tenants are fairly easygoing and allow a photographer into their home for marketing purposes, however, on occasion there can be the angry tenant. Angry tenants feel like someone is making them leave their home. They may have lived here for a number of years or even worse just a few months, therefore, having to leave and pack your belongings isn't necessarily very nice.
Although it is not the fault of the real estate agent or the property photographer, some tenants just want to take it out on someone, anyone. Being very polite and patient and trying to explain the situation can help most of the time. Ultimately the tenant knows that it isn't really your fault that the landlord has decided to sell.
What do you do if your real estate agent does not show up for a photoshoot?
We would take it upon ourselves to greet the owner of the property and represent the agent in the way we know they would like. We would assure the property owner that we have photographed many many homes in the past and we do understand some agents can get very busy.
We also advise them that we understand what the agent is trying to achieve in the marketing of their home. Sometimes real estate agents get caught up with other appointments and so find it difficult to make every scheduled meeting on time. Other photography companies that you may choose should not only know how to take great photos but also know how to handle homeowners tenants and all customers when faced with this situation.
