Frequently asked questions
How long does it take to photograph a property?
The amount of time required to properly photograph a home can vary greatly depending on size. As a general guideline plan on about 1 hour, but many large homes can take longer. If you plan on doing both Photography and 3D tour plan on about 1 hour per 1,000 sqft. If you have more questions about the time required for your photo shoot, it can be discussed at the time of booking.
How much notice do you need to schedule my photo shoot?
Ideally about 1 week notice should be provided in order to get your preferred date and time. I can ocassionally acomodate last minute requests, but it is best not to rely on that. The more notice you can provide the better.
How can I help prepare my client's (or my) home for a real estate photo shoot?
The neater and cleaner your home is, the better it will photograph. Always start with a good cleaning. While Photoshop is an awesome tool with a lot of power, nothing replaces making sure the home is photo ready when the photographer arrives. Keep in mind that the home will look as good in photos as it does in person.
What type of real estate photography equipment do you use?
We use high end, professional grade, full frame Nikon digital cameras with 36 mp resolution and a variety of lenses that allow us to capture any building from any perspective. For drone photography, we use a DJI professional grade drone with 12mp photo resolution and 4k video resolution. 3D Showcases are captured with a Matterport 3D Camera.
Are you able to travel to photograph my project?
Absolutley! I am available to travel worldwide for your photography projects. Travel expenses are billed at cost to the client. There is never an up-charge on travel costs.
How long does it take to get my photos?
All photographs, 3D showcases and property websites will be delivered within 24-hours of shoot completion. Property videos and schematic floor plans will be delivered within 2 business days.
Do you accept credit cards?
Yes, I can accept payment by check, cash, EFT (electronic funds transfer right from your bank account), Visa, MasterCard, American Express or Discover.
Do I have to meet you at the home to give you access?
Nope! You can simply provide me with a one time access code for the lockbox, or, if the home has a contractor's lock box installed you may also provide that code for access. Of course, you are also always welcome to meet me at the home and hang out during the photo shoot.
What if the weather is bad on the day of my shoot?
If the weather is bad on the day of your scheduled shoot (i.e. rain, snow, or anything else Oregon can come up with) you will be given the opportunity to reschedule for the next available open shoot date. If you choose to proceed with the shoot as scheduled, regardless of the weather, please understand that the listed pricing does not include fixing photos for cloudy skies. Also, please note aerial photography cannot be conducted in the rain or inclement weather.
How are photos delivered and are they sized for RMLS?
Once you have booked your first photoshoot with us, you will be added to our client portal. From your account you can access all your past and future scheduled shoots, view photos and access property websites. After the completion of each shoot, you will recieve an email with download links to both RMLS and Full Res sized photos. Of course, if you have any questions, we are happy to help out!
