Real Estate Photography
Like so many things, you often get what you pay for…
Sure, we may not be the cheapest photographers around. If you are only interested in price and not interested in getting the maximum benefit from years of experience and top quality camera gear, then you may be selling yourself short. If price is all you are interested in, well you may be better off finding someone else to do your photos as we are not interested in compromising the quality of our work or the results we produce.
There is a lot more to photographing a property than you may realise. With domainphotos.com, you are not just paying for someone’s time, you are paying for a high level of experience, knowledge and a professional service.
Have a look through some of the real estate magazines, or the real estate pages in your local papers. You will see some photos that may look fantastic while others may look basic, dull or just lack that certain vibe. Putting it bluntly, they probably look boring. They were probably taken by someone in a hurry, using whatever camera they can get their hands on. To get good quality results, apart from skill, you need to take your time and use the best available equipment. Just because you have a camera in your hand does not mean you are a ‘photographer’.
We have four ‘standard’ pricing structures plus a ‘one off’ tailored package.

Tailored ‘one off’ photo shoots – can also be arranged where you will be charged on a per time basis – $100 per hour – minimum of 3 hours charged. Requirements and options to be arranged.
Please Note -: the number of shots will vary as some properties may not have 15 shots available, whereas other properties may present a greater number of opportunities.
The amount of time suggested above is a guide only. Actual time taken will no doubt vary, in most cases it will take a little longer. It is important that your property looks its best and is neat and tidy prior to our arrival. Lawns mowed, hoses put away, rubbish tidied up, bins put away and so on. Inside the major issues are usually dishes and so forth on sinks or benches, and the photographers favourite – fridge magnet central and just plain clutter in rooms.
Moving the odd piece of furniture here and there and so on is usually inevitable, but we won’t have time to decorate your house to make things look ‘just right’. As a rule, only one bedroom would be photographed, typically the ‘main’ bedroom, so if you have an amount of ‘clutter’ to disguise, put it in the other bedrooms.
**I noticed that you offer an option for dusk photo shoots, why do a photo shoot at dusk? A hint of a yellow or orange tint to a photo can sometimes contribute to the mood of the photo, for example the warm orange glow of a candle, a nice warm open fire in a winter setting and so on. Other reasons for dusk photography are numerous, some houses just don’t look as appealing in daylight whereas at night they can look amazing. Many houses can be made to look far more romantic or enchanting with dusk photography. It does not work for every house, some will gain little or no benefit from a dusk photo shoot. But when it does work, the results can be incredible. If your aim is to sell your house, you need to make it as marketable as possible. Explore every available option you can to make it look its best.
They don’t sell cars in car yards without a bit of a polish, why not do the same for your house!
