Finding and choosing a property photographer is often quite difficult. The main reason is because in your locality, there is only likely to be few photographers who specialise in this area. So how do you choose the right photographer for you? Below is my guide.
Choosing Your Property Photographer
Number 1: Find a photographer with the right equipment and software
Your property is a huge asset. If you wish to sell it, you will want to maximise the amount received. If you have a holiday or student property you will want to promote it to get the highest rent possible.
The way to do this is to generate more interest and thus get more viewings. You have about 2 seconds for your main image to make an impression and for viewers to investigate more. You can beat your competition and get noticed by having better photographs. If you look at many Estate Agent and holiday let websites you will often see photographs taken on a smart phone or ipad. The images are often badly exposed with poor composition. By using a professional photographer with the right equipment and software you get images that are sharp, correctly exposed, with detail in the highlights and corrected for converging verticals.
Number 2: Decide on your property photography style
I shoot mainly for people selling and letting properties. I also shoot for architects and the construction industry. The latter often require their property photographs to be more arty. Here converging verticals, images taken at angles and night time photography can add something extra to the images.
I adapt my style to suit the clients requirements.
Also image processing varies between photographers. I have developed several techniques to get the high quality of images that are on my website. With such variety I recommend that you look through several photographers galleries to check out the quality and style of their work.
Number 3: Discuss your requirements with your photographer
Email or telephone your photographer to discuss your requirements. Your photographer needs to know your requirements beforehand because how you intend your images will also influence on how your photographer will take your images.
Number 4: Ask Questions and Check Reviews
The types of questions to ask are:-
How many properties have you photographed?
What type of camera equipment do you use?
Do you have insurance?
How many images will I get?
By what methods can you deliver my images?
How long does it take to get my images?
What is your price for property photography?
Finally check your property photographer’s reviews on Google and Facebook.
Once you have set your budget, chosen your style of property photographs, asked some questions and checked your photographer’s reviews you are ready to make your booking.
