How is a real estate shoot different than shooting a bathroom remodel?
The typical real estate photo usually is a very wide angle shot of an entire room. When photographing general contracting, the focus is more on finishes and design, so an entirely different composition and lens is used. Room decor should be complimentary but sparse, in order to highlight the finishes and materials used.
Is it more expensive to shoot for commercial space?
Real estate photos are licensed to be used for the duration of a listing. Often, the photos are used for fewer than six months. For this reason, the license is going to average between $10-$15 per image for the real estate agent. For anyone using images long-term, the license to use the photo is based on two factors - time and audience. Will you be advertising nationwide or locally? Do you want to use the images in printed materials? Designers and contractor pricing should budget around $500+ varying based on the number of images. Local, small business/commercial space starts at $1000 and includes the pre-shoot scouting consultation.
How do we prepare for the shoot?
For starters, you’ll send over a few cell phone images to give an idea of the space we’re photographing. As part of the consultation process, we’ll discuss staging and times also. Typically for 1-3 rooms, no on-site scouting is necessary to help prep for the shoot. Larger spaces and retail will entail a pre-shoot visit to the location so that we can create a punch list along with finding the right time of day for the best light. (Sometimes this cannot be achieved if we need to work around business hours.) Every shoot is different, so we’ll tailor this to the needs of your business and/or your client.
