Which areas do you serve?

 All Southern California county's (Extra charge for shooting outside orange county)*

How do I get my photos?

Your photos will be delivered electronically via email and/or a web link.

 

When do I get my photos?

Within 48 hours of the shoot.

 

Do you upload the photos to the MLS?

Unfortunately I cannot. I am not a licensed Realtor and do not have access to the MLS.

 

Do I get to choose the photos for processing & finishing?

Unfortunately, no. Due to the high volume of photos I take for each shoot, anywhere from 300-500 photos, there’s no efficient way to share and select photos in a timely fashion.

 

Should I hire a home stager?

Home Stagers and Real Estate Photographers really are two peas in the same pod where “the goal is to help people sell properties by creating that emotional connection that attracts buyers, draws them to the property and gets them to pay a premium prices for a well presented home.

While each property’s needs are different, I would always encourage any seller or agent to get a Home Stager’s opinion and estimate.

 

How can I use the photos?

Under our terms, the photos can be used only for the sale of the property. Because neither the current homeowner (the seller) nor the buyer will be signing a Location Release Agreement, neither you nor I have the right to use or sell the photos for any purpose outside of the realm of real estate. As the photographer, I retain all ownership of the photos, and the right to use the photos for self promotion as a Real Estate Photographer.

 

How should we prepare the home for the shoot?

At a minimum, the house should look clean and organized. De-cluttering mantles and countertops of personal items go a long way to making a home look open and inviting. Smaller things like removing visible garbage cans can also make the house look cleaner. Bright, artificially colored packaging, like on cereal boxes and shampoo bottles are also very distracting to the eye. Perhaps most important, check to ensure every (and I mean EVERY) light fixture in the home turns on with a working light bulb. It can make a huge difference.

The following is a basic guideline to prepare a home for photography:

 

Interior

  • Turn on all interior lights

  • De-clutter or organize mantles, shelves and tabletops.

  • Remove or minimize personal photos and memorabilia

  • Clear off counter tops in kitchen and bathroom areas

  • Remove photos, notes and papers from the refrigerator

  • Turn ceiling fans and televisions off

  • Make all beds and tidy bathrooms

  • Remove piles of newspaper and magazines

  • Tuck trash cans out of view in a closet or cupboard

  • Point out valuable or recognizable artwork that should be edited in post

  • Contain pets in the garage or out of sight

 

Exterior

  • Remove all vehicles from driveways and from in front of the house

  • Remove all garden tools including hoses and sprinklers

  • Mow and rake yard

  • Move garbage cans out of sight

  • Sweep driveways, sidewalks and patios
