Top Property & Real Estate Photographers related questions

Property photographers can cover various types of properties, including private residences for sale or rent, holiday homes listed on platforms like Airbnb or public structures such as buildings or bridges. Whether they specialise in all these areas or focus on a specific niche depends on the individual photographer.

The cost of hiring photographers generally varies depending on factors such as location and specialisation. For real estate photographers, prices can range from $100 to $500 per session. For architecture photographers, they can be between $50 to $500 per session.

While most real estate listings typically include at least 10 photos, a skilled photographer will capture hundreds of images and then select the best 15 to 30 for editing. The same goes for architectural photographers, although the final number of photos to edit depends on your agreement with the photographer.

Real estate photography shoots can vary in duration from 20 minutes to several hours, depending on the size and complexity of the property. For architectural photography, capturing one structure may take at least an entire day, especially if different lighting conditions are required. This may extend into the wee hours if the weather causes delays.

You aren’t obliged to provide tools or equipment to your hired Taskers. They will have their own equipment, such as a DSLR camera with all the filters, lenses, accessories and lighting. The only items you may have to provide are permits required for the on-site photoshoots and specialised equipment like drones if the Tasker cannot provide them. You may also have to provide additional lighting in the building for nighttime shoots.

Yes, you can communicate this to your selected photographer. Browse available photo editors and retouchers on Airtasker here.

Usually, the property owner pays for the real estate photographer’s services, among other marketing costs associated with promoting the property.

Architectural photography focuses on capturing images of pieces of architecture, such as buildings, homes, bridges or any noteworthy structure. This can be used for different purposes, most notably for advertising or profiling commercial spaces, publishing coffee table books, magazines or similar uses.

What does a property and real estate photographers do?

When you hire your real estate photographer, they’ll work with you to understand the story of your property, who you’re trying to appeal to, and what features to focus on. They’ll take a range of photos on site, edit them, and provide print/web ready copies ready for your promotion.

Here are some of the most popular types of real estate photos you can ask them to take:

Property for sale photos

If your property is up for sale, good photos are a huge part of generating interest from online and print ads. Your real estate photographer will be experienced in capturing the kinds of photos buyers are looking for and they’ll know how to play up the best features of your home. They’ll use a high-quality camera to capture photos of your bedrooms, bathrooms, living areas, kitchen, street/driveway, and backyard. Many property photographers use a wide-angle lens to help space feel bigger, and they may use multiple lights and light stands to help space appear more bright and airy. After the session, they’ll edit and crop the best photos from the shoot so they’re ready for your web or print campaign.

Rental property photos

Professional photos of your rental property can help get more applicants to inspect and enquire about it, which will help keep vacancies to a minimum. The process is very similar to taking photos of a property that’s for sale but may focus less on the emotional and more on the practical features. That’s because renters aren’t necessarily looking for a property they can fall in love with or live in for decades - they just want something that meets their needs right away. Photos will focus on floor space, storage space, bathrooms, number of bedrooms, and appliances (like a dishwasher and air conditioning). They’ll take photos of the outside space, too, focusing on features like your shed, patio, pool, secure fencing, and grassy areas suitable for kids. After the photos are taken, your photographer will edit the photos to maximise the appeal and send them via email or USB so they can be used in your listing.

Airbnb photos

Savvy Airbnb hosts are organising a professional photographer to help showcase their property’s best features in the listing. After all, it’s usually the photos that help potential guests decide whether a property is right for them. Depending on the price point and location, your real estate photographer will focus on aspects like the view/surroundings, bedroom spaces, kitchen/living areas, and any special details/touches. In some cases, it could make sense to organise styling and/or models to pose for your photos, as this can help guests imagine themselves enjoying the space.
