Getting Started with Real Estate Photography



Every real estate listing agent and mortgage broker needs a good local photographer they can work with and trust with their client’s needs. Taking on a few real estate projects can be an excellent way for a new photographer to get established in the local market, build a portfolio and start adding to the revenue stream in a practical way.

While initially intending to lay out an overall bullet-list approach to the topic in general, the article quickly evolved into a small series in order to bridge the process with a bit more detail. Originally posted at, each segment is linked in order below for convenient access to anyone interested in learning more.

Part One — Exteriors



Part Two — Interiors



Part Three — Floor Plan Services



Part Four — Processing



Part Five — Virtual Tours & Pricing



Part Six — Video Services


These are by no means intended as best practice for this work, but as one useful and proven approach to the process. If you or someone you know might benefit, please share freely. Thanks for stopping by. Questions? Drop me a line at or connect on Facebook and Twitter.
