I received a phone call from Deborah Peterson Milne asking for a quote for interior photography. Her property was due to go on the market and she was not happy with the photographs that had been taken. She accepted my quote and a time was arranged to meet at her property in Camperdown Road. Deborah sent me copies of the photographs that had already been taken and they were not too bad but Deborah did not think they conveyed the feeling of the property she had put so much effort into creating. Looking t them, I felt that there was too much flash and some of the camera positions were not ideal.
When I met Deborah, I found out that she had worked in the property rental business for Margaret Duffus Leasing so new a bit about property and marketing. Her apartment was very nice and had lots of interesting touches, and a nice ambience. The predominance of flash in the photographs was not conveying this so I concentrated on using manly available light with less flash. For some of the shots, I used HDR (High Dynamic Range) where I used 7 or 9 shots at different exposures and combined them in Photoshop to keep detail in the shadow and highlight areas without ruining the atmosphere of the room.
I do not know the difference in price but my fees will have been higher but high quality commercial images are an investment.Good photography will not sell a property on it’s own but can make a difference to how many people arrange a viewing, and as Deborah says in of her comments – it can “help get them through the door”
If you have a property anything to sell or promote, get in touch to discuss your requirements.
“Hi Neil – your photos are incredible. I’ll pick the ones out we need & let you know tomorrow morning if that’s ok?
Thanks again, Graham & I are delighted!”
“Good morning Neil,
Here are the photos that’d we’d like to use. Sorry it took me so long to chose; they seriously are all great!
Thanks again for all your help and confirming we weren’t crazy for not settling for the first set of photos that were taken.”
“Thanks for emailing me the photos last evening. Each one is incredible and we are very pleased.
I can’t wait to hear what our sales agent says on Monday. Sharp contrast from the photos she had arranged last Monday.
Thanks again and all the best!”
“Well your photos will definitely help get them through the door!!
Thanks a lot : )”
