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 onsite, 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 lense to help the space feel bigger, and they may use multiple lights and light stands to help the 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 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.
