As a real estate agent, you know how important it is to showcase a property in its best light. High-quality photographs can make all the difference when it comes to attracting potential buyers. That’s where a professional real estate photographer comes in. They have the expertise and skills to capture stunning images that can help sell a property. To help you get the most out of your real estate photographer, here are five things they want you to know.
Preparation Is Key
A good real estate photographer will have a checklist of items that need to be addressed before a shoot. This may include decluttering the space, removing personal items, and making sure the property is clean and presentable. At Sharp Frame Media, we make sure every single one of your clients receives a Home Prep Guide before their photography session. By preparing the property in advance, you’ll be able to get the best possible photographs that showcase the property’s features.
Lighting Is Everything
Lighting plays a critical role in real estate photography. The photographer will evaluate the property’s natural lighting and determine whether additional lighting is necessary. They may use specialized equipment, such as flashes or reflectors, to ensure that the property is well-lit and looks its best. Understanding the importance of lighting and working with your photographer to get it right can make all the difference in the final product.
Moreover, consider the best time of the day to best showcase your property. If you are not familiar with finding the best time of day, check out the Sunseeker App to make sure you book your session at the best time possible to photograph your property. If you still can not find the best time, ask your photographer for guidance, they are trained and will guide you through any questions you may have. Trust your photographer.
Time Is Of Essence
A real estate photographer understands that time is of the essence when it comes to photographing a property. They’ll work with you to schedule a shoot at a time that’s convenient for both you and the seller. They’ll also be efficient during the shoot, capturing all necessary shots quickly and accurately. By working together to manage time effectively, you’ll be able to get the photographs you need without disrupting your busy schedule.

Clear communication can help ensure that the final product meets your expectations and helps sell the property.
Editing Is A Key Part Of The Process
After the shoot, the real estate photographer will spend time editing the images to ensure that they look their best. This may include color correction, cropping, and retouching. They’ll work to create images that are bright, clear, and attractive to potential buyers. It’s important to understand that editing is a critical part of the process, and it can take time to get the final product just right.
Moreover, many photography companies and or photographers will offer additional services like virtual dusk, green grass, blue skies, virtual staging, and more. Ask your photographer what else is available to best showcase your property
