I have been telling my clients for years that hiring me to photograph your listing will not be the cause of you selling your property. Very rarely will a buyer make an offer on a home just from viewing the photographs. I do however tell them that hiring me will acheive two important things: 1) it well get more people to see the home then otherwise would ask for viewings 2) it will get you, the agent, more listings in the future.
While shooting this large house for CPA Realty, based out of Lynbrook, NY, I really got the feeling that this home would be a great place for big families and entertaining guests.
I teamed with with SkyView Visuals to shoot this magnificent home in the North Shore of Long Island. What a beautiful day it turned out to be. The blue sky with just the right amount of fluffy clouds along with all the greenery in the yard really helps to show off the attractive exterior of the house.
Whenever I speak to real estate agents that are not yet clients (or do not use professional photographers for their listings), I often get asked the question, is it really necessary for me to have professional photos of my listings? “My iPhone camera is incredible and I take my photos with that,” is probably the most common answer I receive. “I have been marketing my listings without professional photos for years, and it’s been working for me” is another popular one. Truth is, if you’re not using a professional photographer and professional photos to market your home, you are not marketing your home.
While I have had my site live for years, I have never been much into blogging and posting my work. While I do try to update my portfolio on my site frequently, my portfolio does include most of my favorite images. What I don’t typically get to show though is the variety of images from the same shoot. I figured now is as good a time as ever to start showcasing images I have photographed from the variety of different shoots I complete.
