Professional Real Estate Photography is consistently receiving top ratings in virtually every online list on how to earn 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 is not to sell houses to people, but it's to show the prospective buyer how beautiful and unique the home would be to them.
For example, one of my favorite clients is the San Francisco Giants baseball team. Their season ticket holders want to have real estate photos of their favourite players, so they ask me to take the photographs with them during home games. I have a good deal of fun doing it, but my main focus is taking exactly the identical lens on each different photograph, so that everything appears uniform. If I were to take the same lens on all of the different photos, it would look unnatural.
When folks come to real estate professional photographers, they want a cohesive photo package. My basic job is to suggest a model, and show the customer how to use their lighting. Most professional real estate photographers currently use some sort of lighting setup to light their clientele. It's just something which makes their photographs more professional looking and visually appealing. I usually won't do the light myself unless the customer requests it. I think it's important because it shows professionalism.
There are quite a few other facets of professional real estate photography which I'm not going to touch on here. I can talk broadly about white backgrounds, black backgrounds, and lens options. But what I'd like to share with you now is the reason why people decide to use a real estate professional photographers to get their real estate photos taken.
There are many benefits to using photographers to take your home buyer's pictures for you. First of all, most photographers will charge you only a flat rate fee for the whole photography shoot (not per picture) even if you hire them for several diverse visits. Another terrific benefit to hiring professionals to photograph your home buyers is that they already know precisely how to approach each person in your photo shoot, so you won't need to waste time trying to determine how to pose or how to hold someone perfectly.
The last reason that people choose to have their home photos taken by professionals is because the results speak for themselves. You can really see what a great job the photographer did just by looking at the photos. When you're looking to advertise your house with real estate photographs, selecting a great real estate photographer is certainly the way to go.
