How to Get The Best Possible Real Estate Photos

Here is another hard working agent I snapped with my phone the other week.  Great agents know how quality images impact the sales process, and help owners to prepare for the photo shoot.  Getting their hands dirty on site ? Sweeping the deck ?  True hallmarks of an outstanding agent.

Ok,  The last photo is actually me.  This was an accidental selfie.   Here is the story.  So, I am often moving stuff around in the scene, to ensure the best possible final image.  I had already taken this angle, and while the deck was excellent, clean and styled etc, I decided it would look nicer with the plastic box with assorted stuff on top of it moved from its location under the the  BBQ.  I always shoot via a wireless remote trigger, which normally resides in my right hand pocket.  As I crouched to move the box, the trigger must have accidentally fired.  I didn’t actually notice until I checked the photos on the computer after the shoot.  If you look closely, in this photo (right hand side next to the pot plant)  you can also see the portable studio flash which I use for “on site” real estate photography in Brisbane.  If you want to see a before and after with this flash, check out this post

So, if you are selling your property and need the services of a super duper agent in Brisbane, just ask me for a referral – I know the best ones !


The Jacarandas are pretty but leaves can sometimes drop as quickly as you sweep them up. Thank you Kathleen for your excellent skills on the broom.
