I really enjoy shooting RE (real estate) photography. At times it can be down right fun. In this case, a single mother wasn’t ready for me when I showed up. Her daughter was a real dynamo and, for some reason, enjoyed following me around from the moment I arrived. So, I did two things. I shot rooms as mom finished them, balancing inside and outside work. And, entertained her daughter….
A recent home shoot provided plenty of opportunity for feature shots. As you might expect, larger homes frequently are richer in these types of opportunities.
When hiring a photographer, whether for a wedding, motorsport, or real estate photography for use with MLS and print brochures, watching for these kinds of images in their portfolio.
Real estate photography in much of the world, not just the U.S., suffers from a much maligned perception. This is often because the quality of pictures on online listing services are so absolutely terrible.
One of the things I try to do for my real estate photography customers, is capture some nice feature shots. These are those nice little ‘character’ or future nostalgia shots that everyone can appreciate.
