Real estate photography on a smartphone

Your phone images do not need to look like phone images!

First impressions are critical. If the property photo does not instantly convey value and desirability – we move on. Poor real estate photography can prevent prospective clients seeking further information in your listing. Prospective tenants are just as discerning as buyers sourcing a home for themselves and their family.

 

You will learn the limitations of the phone camera and how to easily overcome them. This jargon-free half day real estate photography workshop covers; practical techniques, tips and apps to consistently produce amazing images.

Suitable for:

Real estate agencies, property managers, property valuers, Airbnb hosts and managers, bed and breakfast hosts, property developers, etc

Course Outline:

This tailored, jargon-free real estate photography workshop covers practical techniques, tips and apps to easily produce amazing images on your mobile phone or tablet. There is so much more to creating an image with visual impact than simply the tap of the screen. You will learn the limitations of the phone camera and how to easily overcome them.

Learning Outcomes:

  • Develop a checklist before capturing photos
  • Know which camera replacement and photo editing apps to use
  • Capture photographs in different lighting scenarios
  • Learn practical, quick and easy photo editing techniques using phone apps
  • Identify smartphone accessories that can expand your capability
  • Practice applying the skills and knowledge gained during the session

Various Real Estate Institutes require you to earn Continuous Professional Development points. To accompany your pre-approval application for external points, we can provide the course outline, learning outcomes, session plan and course material.

What clients have to say

Our team takes lots of iPhone photos as part of agricultural extension work. Mike ran a great session that had everyone engaged and we all learned about some great tips and apps that we've been using since to improve the photos we post in our communications work.

Using social media for my job I wanted to improve the quality of my photos I post. Mike was a fantastic teacher and I learnt a lot over the two hours. It’s hard to believe what you can do with your Smartphone! I’ve been able to immediately put many of the tips into practice and would highly recommend his courses. Thanks Mike.

I joined the workshop to learn how to take WOW images, for work reasons and for my own personal images too. The session was great and useful for people with all levels of technology knowledge. I learned some handy information that I will now use on a day to day basis. Mike was friendly and very knowledgeable. Thanks

Mike's workshop really opened up my eyes on what is achievable with these devices. The workshop format was very flexible and allowed me to ask lots of questions based on the types of photos I take both for work and personally. Mike's knowledge of both camera and editing apps was amazing.

Mike's workshop is clearly presented, well organised and a lot of fun. Mike is very knowledgeable and presents the information in a jargon-free, non-judgmental manner with a lot of positive re-enforcement and tips to improve your photographs. I highly recommend the course to all who want to get more from their smartphone camera.

The workshop has helped me to move out of my mobile photography 'comfort zone' and start experimenting with other editing apps and more features of my iPhone. The FB group is a great follow up support as the news skills will take time to develop. Thanks Mike for answering all my questions and the great follow up.
