Frequently Asked Questions
Thank you for your business! I appreciate you and I am glad to have the opportunity to shoot your listings.
Some things you need to know:
1. How can I help my sellers prepare their home to be photographed?
Here are some typical questions that I get from sellers when I arrive at the property for the shoot. If you address them ahead of time it will cause less rushing around and stress for them at the time of the shoot:
“Will THAT be in the photo”? I often arrive at homes and the seller will have moving boxes in a corner, or other items in the room they don’t want in the photos. They ask me if THAT will show, the answer is always yes. General rule of thumb if they can see it...it will be in the photo. My wide angle lens photographs it all, good and bad. Hiding things out of sight ahead of time will ensure a stress free shoot for your seller.
“Let me know if I need to move anything.” Please know, I don’t need them to move anything. I only shoot the house as it is presented to me. Also, let them know I don’t get involved in consulting, staging, cleaning, moving, etc. Please help them through this process by going room to room to advise them on what should be done to present their house in the best way possible to buyers. Discussing with them ahead of time what they need to move will ensure a smooth photoshoot for your seller.
“Are you going to shoot my yard too”? Sellers are often so busy preparing the inside of their home they forget about the outside. Please ask them to clean and tidy the front and back yards before I arrive, also ask them to put the trash cans in the garage or out of sight so they do not show in the photos.
2. How much notice do you need to schedule my photo shoot?
3. Is there an extra charge for locations more than 25 miles from your home office?

10. Who owns the photographs?
These are just a few helpful tips to get the best results from your photoshoot. Less clutter makes the house more appealing. Again, the condition of the home is up to you and your seller, I will shoot what ever is presented to me.
