A new website is just getting started, and it’s a real estate photographer directory that provides detailed information and interviews with some of the best real estate photographers around.
There are other photographer directories, and even other directories just for real estate photographers, but what’s great about BestRealEstatePhotographers.com is that it only features one photographer from each area.
It can be so hard these days when we have so many options to choose from. Sometimes the huge number of choices can be a little overwhelming – unless it’s icecream. One can never have too many icecream flavours to choose from. But I digress. 🙂
So what you’ll find at this site is just the one photographer in your area (although it’s still getting started, so not every area is covered yet).
But what you also get are great photos and really interesting details on different real estate photographers and how they work. For example, I found it quite cool to read about how different photographers work, their most memorable shoots, their photographic style, and what they enjoy most about photographing real estate and architecture.
Here’s a cool story from a photographer in Melbourne, Australia:
“One of the most memorable photo shoots I’ve done was shooting a video from a small Cessna airplane. We had to fly as low as was legal and safe while I was hanging my camera out the open window of the plane as we tracked the shot up a country road.
The wind was howling around me and buffeting the camera from side to side while the pilot (my brother) was doing his best to keep the plane level and yawed hard to one side so the propeller wouldn’t get in the shot. I was yelling instructions to him through the headset intercom while he concentrated on tracking the road. It was very funny listening to our dialog when we watched the raw footage later.”
And I really resonated with this comment from a real estate photographer in Ohio, USA, and why she enjoys photographing homes for sale:
“This is an area of photography that I pursued because I saw the need for improving the quality and the impact it could have in helping people.
After going through the buying process for a home of our own, I realized that I overlooked many homes due to poor images. If I can bring a potential buyer to say, “I want to live there!”, then my job as a photographer is a success!”
If you’re looking for a real estate photographer in your area, this looks like it could become a really useful resource.
