10 Most Asked Questions about Property Photography


1. How long does it typically take to do Property Photography?

The time spent at the property varies on the property size and photography option selected.

There are 2 options available:

1st Option 12 Standard Photos – Estimated time at the property from 45 min to 1h 30 mins

Add-on service for 12 Standard Photographs is a choice of 30 images – Estimated time at the property is 1 hr – 1 hr 30 mins (depending on the size of the property)

2nd Option 2h Photo Session – It is estimated 2h at the property.


2. How many images are included in each of these options?

The Standard Photos includes 12 edited images, taking into account any special image requests made at the time of the booking process,

If a choice of images is added to Standard Photos you will have a choice of 30 watermarked images for choosing and 20 Final Edited Photographs,

The Photo Session includes a choice of 50 watermarked images for choosing and Final 25 Edited Photographs,


3. What is the turnaround time to receive the material?

For Standard Photos,the turnaround time is the following working day after the property visit.

For Photography Options where a choice of images is provided, the delivery of the material is the following working day from when the selection is made.


4. What is the choice of images?

Choice of images can be added to our Standard Photography product where a selection of the best angles is left to the photographer’s choice.

When adding a Choice of Images before editing you will receive extra images to make your selection of the images you like the best, if this option is selected we will take more photos than usual and you will also receive more!

It is only the Standard Photos where you decide if you want the photographer to choose the best photos or if you want to choose yourself by adding the choice of images to it.

When booking a Photo Session, the choice of images is included in the price.


5. What is the difference between Standard Photos and Photo Session?


12 Standard Photographs is the most affordable and popular option used by Estate agents to market the property with the least amount of money spent.

Delivery: Only Wide Angle Images to showcase the property or location itself.

Leaves the selection of images to the photographer’s judegement, this provides a very streamlined and quick service.

An add-on of choice of 30 images can be added if there is an agent/client who wants to take control on how they present their property and have a choice of images before editing provided and requires a greater amount of edited images,

Whereas, a 2h Photo Session is used by Service Apartment providers or Interior Designers or people who want to showcase not only the property but also the details like fixtures & fittings and staging.

This option is more focused on the quality of work over the affordability and will always include a choice of images before editing. In addition to Wide Angle images, Lifestyle images also known as close-ups to highlight the details will be provided.

Our suggestion for anyone who isn’t sure what option to choose it would be wise to purchase the Photo sessions to capture the whole property and not miss any crucial details, your welcome!
