Photos bring a property to life. Before potential buyers even consider looking at a residential or commercial property, they’re going to want to see photos. It is ever more essential to choose the right photographer, it is the difference between a property that sells in days and one that sits there for weeks, if not months.
Good photographers are able to consider a range of factors, it takes experience to understand lighting conditions and pick the best way to frame a particular shot. Light, height, room lines, furniture, size, key features and client preference are all factors to consider.
As well as their knowledge and skill, professional photographers carry equipment that gives them a competitive advantage over amateurs. From high-quality camera gear and sturdy tripods to powerful studio lighting to tackle difficult lighting conditions, a room will never look as bright and welcoming as it will after being photographed by a professional.
High-quality editing and retouching are a key advantage of an established photography business, however, there is a right and wrong way to incorporate it and some alterations can be misleading and even illegal.
