When will my photographs be delivered and how?
Real estate photos are delivered within 24 hours. Same day delivery can be possible with advance notice and for an additional fee. The images are delivered to your email via an online download link (Google Drive).
How long does it take to photograph a home?
I suggest allowing at least 1 hour for the average size home. The time required is based on the size of the home but also with how photo ready the home is. Before the photographer arrives to the home, make sure to communicate with the sellers about the importance of having a photo ready home. This includes having all the automobiles moved from the front driveway, have all the window blinds open in the rooms and most important that the house is ready to be photographed as soon as the photographer arrives. The photographer may move some objects or furniture around during the shoot to make the photographs more appealing. Getting professional-quality real estate photos requires more than just running through and pushing the button on the camera. Every room has its best angle and lighting may be different from one home to another.
How should a home be prepared for being photographed?
The home should be neat and clean. Extra items (pet food dishes, laundry, unnecessary clutter) should be removed to make the home look as inviting as possible. Hiring a professional home stager can be very helpful. If that's not an option, do your best at making the house as "show room" like as possible.
Can you Photoshop furniture / people / stuff in or out of the photos?
It's best to remove anything you don't want in the image prior to my arrival. While it's technically possible to Photoshop almost anything in or out of an image, this can be much more complex and time consuming than many people think. Minor adjustments, such as removing a spot on the carpet or wall, are done at no charge.
Can you replace a grey sky with a blue sky?
Yes of course! We can also replace your grass, add a fire in the fire place or even put your favorite team on the screen of the TV!
