A Comment on Real Estate Photography

My price estimate was too high for a real estate sales person needing photographs of an upscale home.

He probably envisioned someone with a point-and-shoot camera walking through the house, and around the property, casually taking pictures. How long could that take, and the price could not possibly be very high, right?

A full-time professional photographer is going to spend ample time evaluating each point of interest and angles, and create magazine-like photographs. These can take hours to do properly, and the results are worth the time and expense.

I made this exterior image after location scouting a few days ahead, and much of the creative work was accomplished in-camera when I shot it.  At the request of my client, very little was done in post-production.
