hold buyers' attention

A Wall Street Journal article reported the Journal of Real Estate Research findings that 95% of prospective home buyers online begin by looking at photos and spend 60% of their time looking at property photos, as opposed to 20% on description. 

sell for more

According to the same Redfin study, "Sellers who used a high-quality camera and lens for their listing photos got an average of $3,400 more for their properties."

"but, i own a DSLR..."

First and foremost, far more goes into a professional real estate shoot than a DSLR.

  • Lens -  this makes a far bigger difference than the camera.  A professional (i.e. $1,000+) lens will provide sharp images with accurate color rendering and little distortion.
  • Professional tripod / head - these are necessities in order to ensure proper exposure, alignment, and image sharpness. 
  • Composition - how the photo is composed matters; understanding leading lines, height, angles, and other elements all factor into the visual appeal of a space.
  • Post-production - this covers everything that happens after the shoot is over, editing each image to make sure everything is just right.  This is particularly important for any property that has a view to showcase, such as the beautiful mountain lodge below, or when a twilight photo is desired to add that bit of extra pop to a listing.

bracketing, Compositing, and other
things you shouldn't have to worry about

The above Before & After photo is a composite of the two images below.  It is simply impossible to properly expose both the interior and exterior portions of a photograph, such as the one above, in a single exposure.  The only way to accomplish this is through bracketing exposures and compositing the images in post.

Exposing for a naturally lit interior will always leave a bright exterior view over-exposed and washed out. 

Exposing for a bright exterior will always leave a natural interior too dimly lit, resulting in too much shadow and no detail.


Twilight images

Twilight images provide an incredible dynamic to the photos that can really make a listing pop.  This type of shooting requires considerable time and care in order to produce a single, high quality photo.
