SEO-friendly domain names are rarely available and so I was delighted to be offered two recently. The first is: www.property-photography.co.uk and hopefully, www.property-photography.co.uk and hopefully,  this will become the go-to resource for anyone looking for expertise in the area of making great images for property presentation.

My hope is that the best photographers in the UK will contact me so that I will be able to add their details to the site in return for a link back from their site.

 

 

I’m very pleased to announce that I have just set up a brand new directory of specialist property photographers at www.property-photography.co.uk.

This will, I hope, one day become the go-to resource for anyone who is looking to engage the best property photographers in their area, whether for residential or commercial property, new or old.

I have already invited a couple of photographers whose work I very much admire, to link their names to my site. However, there is an invitation to anyone else who is in this field and who provides quality work, to get in touch so that we can hopefully list them too. I will want the site to reflect the best available work in the UK but I would encourage you to get in touch even if you think that your work might not be up to scratch. I can certainly help you improve if that’s what you would like.

 

I love sharing my knowledge with estate agents. I was one myself for 37 years and although I’ve spent the last 11 years or my business life photographing homes instead of selling them, I’m still at heart a property man.

So, when I get to spend a day with experienced people of similar mind who want to improve an aspect of their business with which I can help, it gives me enormous pleasure, especially when they’re genuinely good people with a desire to learn.

So, I was delighted to see that they asked me to run a property photography workshop for them and that they’ve taken to heart the skills they learned that day, by making special mention of it on their Internet site.

Eric Lloyd & Co in Brixham and Paignton, thank you for asking for my assistance. .

 

 

I’m guessing someone took a bad photo and tried to restore it.

Take a look at this ‘brave’ attempt that turned into an epic fail.

One of the easiest ways to make your properties stand out from the competition is to use photos that are so obviously unlike the others on the portals and in your news ads, that they’ll prove irresistible to buyers who will want to find out more.

But how do you take photos like those below? Read the rest of this entry »
