When the time comes to sell your home, you want to make the process quick and effortless. One of the most prominent attention-grabbing marketing factors for those selling is to purchase good home photography. Most people quickly browse through online listings, and when there is a quality house photo accompanying the listing, you are more likely to stick out and attract attention.
The key is finding a house photographer that can capture the true essence of your home. There are different attributes that you should be looking for before employing professional home photography. Look for experience, what they can offer you, price, and how quickly they can get the house photographed. Find out all the ins and outs of getting the best house photography possible.
Do Your Research
Before you ever decide on a house photographer, you need to take to the internet and get some research done. There are a plethora of ways to check out experienced home photography specialists. Do a simple search and check out the ones that come up first. From those, explore how many years each has been in the industry, any reviews that they have received from previous or current clients, and what kind of approach they take to their house photography.
Professional photographers should use the most up-to-date equipment including wide angle lenses and studio lighting when necessary. You may need aerial shots of your property or a session done at night to highlight the beauty of your home exterior. Explore their website and see what kind of home photo images they are showcasing to be sure it’s something that you are interested in and impressed with. After you have a few different house photography suppliers in mind, give them a call. You have to be comfortable with the photographer in your home. They are going to be coming to your home, and you want someone that you can trust.
Make Clear Expectations
Not every house photographer is going to be able to offer you the same services. Some can provide you with extra marketing tools beyond just capturing images. You may want your house photos to be edited and retouched. While it’s perfectly acceptable to do some editing, there might be laws in your area about completely removing parts of the picture. Ask your house photographer if they know what the guidelines are and if they provide an editing service.
Talk with your house photographer about the areas of your property that you want them to focus on. Maybe you have beautiful gardens or a fantastic pool that you want to make sure potential buyers get a clear picture of. It’s important to go through your home first and pick out what you think are the most significant selling points. Share them with your house photographer and ask them to give you any pointers on what they think should be included. A photographer with experience and skill knows what to look for.
You Get What You Pay For
Chances are if you are talking with a house photographer that has prices that are substantially lower than the competition, there’s a reason for it. Either they don’t have the experience, the equipment isn’t as advanced. Talk over all the pricing surrounding the house photography they are going to do up front. They may charge extra for travel, the amount of time on location, editing, or copyrights to your images. These hidden fees can add up if you don’t get them all out on the table ahead of time.
Time and Final Products
Discuss with your prospective photographer about the time frame you are looking at for having your final images delivered to you. You should be able to get them back within a reasonable amount of time so that you can get your house on the market and sold quickly. Finally, question them on what their policy is in the event you are unhappy with the final pictures that they give you of your home. Some home photography professionals will offer a certain amount of changes without any extra fee. Others may guarantee their work and give you the option of an entirely new photo shoot when you don’t think things turned out the way you would have like them to.

3 Reasons to Use a Professional Property Photographer
Technology has made a massive difference in the lives of people searching online to buy a new home. The internet has made everything accessible. Now, all that home buyers need to do is check out listings online and view pictures of real estate before deciding to view it in person. Therefore, it has become important to take and put up professional pictures of your property to make a good first impression on home buyers. If you’re not using a professional property photographer to shoot your listings, then here are 3 reasons why you should reconsider:
Professional Images Attract More Buyers
It isn’t a coincidence that properties with professional images tend to get the most attention on listing websites. Studies have revealed that better-quality images will improve the number of clicks by 100% on listings. So, if your plan is to attract more buyers quickly, it makes sense to acquire the services of a professional property photographer.
Saves You Time
Why waste your precious time taking pictures of your property? Meticulously planning and staging your property, and then taking pictures of each setting is time-consuming. Apart from that, you will also need to re-size and upload these images, and if they come out blurry or in poor quality, you will have to retake them. You can save a lot of time and effort by hiring a professional property photographer to get the best pictures of your property.
Sell Your Property Faster
Studies have shown that homes that are listed with professional images tend to sell 50% faster than homes without professional photos. Your listing is represented by the images posted online, and potential buyers on the Internet are going to be drawn in by professionally taken images. A professional property photographer has the skills and expertise to take professional photos of your listing, which will help you sell your property faster. Get in touch for a quote today. I work in Oxfordshire, Berkshire, Wiltshire, Surrey and Buckinghamshire.
A couple of years ago I photographed two new homes at the ‘Lakes by Yoo’ development in the Cotswolds. Fantastic homes on the waters edge offering a mixture of contemporary living and country home chic.
An amazing architectural photographer I will use always. I am delighted with Graham's photos and I have no hesitation in recommending Graham to any architect. Graham works to the brief and delivers in every aspect..
I always try to work around clients availability, and try to be no more than 2-3hrs onsite. A lot of the time is taken up by composing, styling and lighting. So if the space is already pre dressed more time can be spent elsewhere. I always aim for the best weather scenario to capture architectural photos, however interiors can often benefit from more overcast conditions so we can achieve an even light without strong highlights. Whatever the weather, I can always bring out the best in a scene as I have many years experience.
This shoot was for a company proving high quality window blinds to new buildings UK wide.
I would like to thank you for your very impressive architectural photography services which you supply my company. I would pass your details on to any other company – as I have already done. The good thing about you is the efficiency, promptness, politeness and the significantly improved results my company has achieved since using you..
All businesses involved in the architectural sector need great imagery to help promote their products over rivals. My imagery is suitable for high end marketing. My photos can help the right customers come forward. Good quality PR makes all the difference, and the first part of this is using a professional photographer who understands how to photograph products in their environment. I work with national, regional and local property PR agencies when supplying pr photography services. I can create fantastic imagery for targeting media or potential purchasers and investors through print or web based mediums.
I really enjoy working with building industry suppliers. Working directly with companies providing elements of the build whether lighting, glazing, technology or flooring.
As developers we have used Graham to photograph a number of our building developments and have been thoroughly happy with the results. The imaginative composition and crispness of photography help present the homes in their best light and assist in conveying the high quality of the product that we strive to produce
On this shoot I was working with a floor adhesive company for a press release regarding use of their products at One Hyde Park.
Being skilled in construction photography I understand the requirements for shooting architectural projects as they are developed and delivering fantastic results every time through the various construction site stages. My construction photography is used for websites, advertising and social media. As a construction photographer I have shot all types of construction projects, large and small. I can photograph completed projects, demolition, PR opportunities and site progress photography.
The Importance of Professional Construction Photography
There is a lot going on in a construction site. Keeping issues out while keeping track of progress can be difficult. That is the reason why a lot of people are turning towards professional construction photography, as it helps them document everything that happens on site. There are a lot of different benefits that you gain when you hire a professional with the skills for construction photography on your site.
Keep a Visual Timeline of Site Progress
You get a visual timeline of your construction work by regularly taking construction site photos that are timestamped. This will make a big difference in helping you plan schedules for delivery, and gauge how far ahead or behind the construction project is at a given moment.
Provide Site Updates for Head Office
The decision-makers can’t always show up to the construction site, since they have other tasks to handle and a business to run. However, they do want timely updates about the construction project, and professional construction photography can help them track team progress on-site. Decisions making will also become easier since it would be based on first-hand accounts, site reports, and professional construction site photography documenting the progress.
Brilliant for Your Marketing Efforts
You can make a big difference to your marketing efforts by getting professional construction photography of in-progress and completed works on-site. The images can be used in promotional materials, and even added to glossy brochures, uploaded on social media accounts, and your website. Every business is documenting their work, and you should as well through a professional construction photographer. I work across London, Oxfordshire, Surrey, Berkshire, Wiltshire and Buckinghamshire.
Graham is a first class photographer. We have used him for several years now, to help photograph our construction sites and properties and quite honestly the results are outstanding. Graham manages to turn the most mundane of project, into an exciting and welcoming picture. He helps to tidy the building site and his attention to detail is impeccable. As such, we have had many, many positive comments from our clients about the imagery on the website and it is this, that has made them choose our company over and above the competition. Sometimes on websites, testimonials are amended and the truth is extended but I probably haven’t written enough, on how good Graham is. Clive Dean
My elevated mast photography service is produced using professional Nikon dSLR cameras and lenses on a portable 9 metre telescopic mast. This mast based pole photography system is controlled at ground level and provides a exciting perspective of any building and development whether exterior or interior.
Elevated photography takes into account the surrounding environment and infrastructure such as the main roads, car parks, service yard and neighbourhood. I can also focus entirely on the main premises as directed in the brief. My portable mast system is very stable in all conditions, it takes seconds to erect, allowing for quick movement around large sites without the use or need of access for vehicles or legal restrictions for drones. There are many architectural uses for my elevated mast photography. Architecture based industries can use the elevated mast photography to capture the progress of building sites at design stages, planning stages and during construction. Images captured during our mast photography shoot can easily be blended with 3D visualisations.
To truly capture the best external view, you need elevated photography – whether thats from a mast or a drone. You can’t capture environmental angles from the ground. There are obstacles like fences, trees, and other elements that will obstruct views. Not every property offers a stunning view from the street, so the solution is elevated photography, which allows the photographer to capture a bird’s eye view of impressive features and landscapes of the property with a touch of dynamism. Most photographers don’t have the equipment for elevated photography, but I have access to mast and drone photography systems. It is the ideal way to showcase your property, and we specialize in elevated photography that helps emphasize the architectural strong points of your home. The biggest plus point of elevated photography is that it instantly paints a much grander image of any property, by providing a dynamic view of the entire landscape from an elevated position. I work across Oxfordshire, Berkshire, Surrey, London, Buckinghamshire and Wiltshire.
