Property Photography – Key Benefits
Sell for More
A little more detail
For most people today, your home is your single largest asset, so when you put it on the market, it makes sense to show it at its best. Photographs are arguably the most important part of your property listing. In a market where a potential buyer will typically have a long list of options, any property that immediately stands out on that list is going to be at an advantage. Your listing needs to create a sense of desire in the mind of the buyer. In order to book a viewing, they need to want to live there. That is where using property photography can have real benefits.
Estate agent photography has for a long time been seen as something of a joke in the UK, often being done by those without the correct skills, training, equipment or simply time. No attempt would be made to stage the room, light the photograph properly or even just select a good angle. That view is changing however. With the advent of online portals, more agents and more distractions for potential buyers, a high quality listing has never been more important. In a competitive market, you need to have an edge!
A specialist property photographer will use skill a range of skills and techniques to show your property at its best, while critically not doing anything that would be regarded as “mis-description”. This will involve a mixture of things including lighting, staging advice (how to set up the contents of the room in advance), selecting the best angles to photograph and even re touching grey skies to give them a brighter feel. They will even make sure your walls are vertical in the pictures! You can also find comfort in the knowledge that they will give your home the time it deserves in order to do a good job.

We are always disappointed when it isn’t Peter attending our clients homes, as when he does we always have 100% confidence in his work.”
Area Director – Your Move
“Peter is a highly creative & passionate photographer which shines through his work. I had the pleasure of working with Peter for 3 years or so while at Countrywide, as he was an outsourced photographer for our properties. I truly believe that his exceptional photography skills helped to sell my clients properties that much quicker, due to their amazing presentation online. Everyone looks at the photos first! His attention to detail is second to none, so much so, that clients would often comment after their session at how dedicated & thorough he was. He was always my preferred photographer to use, so I would happily recommend him, to anyone requiring his service.”
