NO, this is not a cattle call for only a certain type of photographer. In fact, it is a call for ALL types of real estate photographers. Imagine you are a Realtor and your listings are not limited to a particular price point. In fact, as a Realtor, you have $10 million dollar listings as well as $100k dollar listings. Are you going to hire the same photographer for both of those? Since the marketing budget for each is different, it is doubtful. Realtors find it advantageous to use different types of visual marketing for different listings. Some Realtors are licensed in more than 1 state also. Geography can play a part in who the Realtor hires. How are they supposed to find you?
Independent real estate photographers have many advantages over the large tour companies. At the same time, we have an issue and that issue is lack of exposure. Independents need representation. They need someone to market the strengths and advantages of hiring the person behind the camera and not just a company. The 3 biggest advantages we have as independents are quality, price and flexibility.
We visit broker offices on behalf of our members. For ALL our members. Every method of real estate photography has its place. We do not take any position of what method is best in any way.
