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?

An experienced property photographer will typically kick off their process with a thorough survey of the space. They're likely to ask about the location to understand its story, your reason for documenting it, your target audience, and any standout features you'd like to highlight. The actual photography service covers an on-site shoot, post-processing and delivery of print copies or web-ready ones you can customise for commercial or personal use. You may also opt to hire a separate photo editing specialist for additional enhancements. If you have specific style preferences or requests, it's best to chat with your Tasker before the scheduled shoot. 

Here are some of the most popular types of property photos you can request from your Tasker:

Real estate listing photography

If you're putting your property on the market, well-taken photos can help you generate some buzz in your listings. A skilled real estate photographer would know how to play up the best features of your home and showcase them effectively for potential buyers’ viewing pleasure. Many real estate photographers use a wide-angle lens to create a sense of spaciousness and may employ artificial lights to enhance brightness.

Rental property photography

Keep your rental property vacancies to a minimum by drumming up interest through quality photos. While comparable to showcasing properties for sale, this particular service tilts more towards selling practicality than building sentimental attachment. After all, renters aren’t necessarily searching for a forever home; they're after a decent place that meets their short-term needs. Expect your hired Tasker to take photos of storage nooks, bathrooms, bedroom counts, and must-have appliances like dishwashers and aircon. They will also highlight your outdoor space, zeroing in on sheds, decks, pools, fences, and grassy areas where kids can play.

Airbnb photography

The quality of your Airbnb listing photos can determine whether you have a fully booked calendar or a dead-quiet property. Aside from your reviews, guests also rely heavily on available images when assessing a property, so it’s no wonder that savvy hosts often enlist the help of experienced photographers to capture their pad in its best light. Depending on the price range and location of your Airbnb rental, your chosen Tasker will likely emphasise key elements that make it a sweet staycation spot, such as the view, bedroom setups, kitchen and living areas, and other notable details. It's worth considering sprucing up the interior or hiring models to pose for your photos, as this can help guests picture themselves kicking back and enjoying the space.

Architectural photography

Work with a skilled architecture photographer to immortalise iconic buildings, bridges, homes, or other local structures. Architectural photography involves specialised shots that can be taken at any time of the day or night, depending on your vision. Taskers excel at capturing both the interior and exterior of diverse architectural wonders, using techniques like aerial and drone photography to add perspective. Since architectural photography can serve multiple purposes, including ads or editorial features, communicate any creative inputs or requests with your Tasker.
