I have seen photography services offered for less money. Why should I pay more?

There are many companies offering photography services to Realtors. Some of them charge less than I do. However, because they charge less, chances are they will be working under time constraints and, often, quantity promises which will severely limit their quality of work. Or, they will be less experienced. Don't be fooled. While cheaper photography may suffice for a median home, the high end properties you're marketing deserve top quality photography and service.

What kind of camera do you have?

I have the most state-of-the-art professional digital equipment available. The camera I use most often is capable of capturing over 16 megapixels in resolution. A magazine cover, for example, only requires about 6 megapixels of resolution.

How fast can I get the photos?

Normally within 48 hours depending on the size of the job and the current workload. Please notify me upfront if you have any special needs.

How do I distribute the photos to my printers and advertisers?

I will supply you with an internet address where the hi resolution files can be downloaded. You can then simply supply this address to your printer.

How long does a shoot take?

I've learned through experience that quality cannot be rushed. However, I've also learned that in some cases the property owner does not want to be inconvenienced by a long photo shoot. Working quickly, I can complete a six image shoot in about one and a half hours.

Do you do flyers or virtual tours?

No. However, be sure to check out my resources page for information on related services.

What if the weather is bad?

Bad weather can be frustrating, especially with view properties. Please be aware, it is equally as important to me as it is to you that we achieve the best possible results. However, because I don't see the property before the scheduled shoot and I cannot evaluate the needs of your deadlines, I need to rely on you to make the call on the morning of the shoot. Please contact me at least 2 hours prior to the shoot in the event you decide to re-schedule.

How can I help prepare for the shoot?

There are a number of important things you can do to ensure the best possible results. Print out this handy checklist.
