Which Magazine has been researching how buyers find properties and I’m rather pleased to say that they have confirmed my own belief that a property’s photos are extremely important to the decision to view.  Read the rest of this entry »

I teach a lot of people how to improve their property photography but my business also edits several thousand photos every month for estate agents and individual customers all around the UK. On photography workshop days, the questions that I invariably get asked about involve Photoshop and these include, ‘How did you get rid of that car?’ and ‘How do you add blue skies? Some people are fascinated by what can be achieved, but like many other skills, success boils down to experience and the ability to see things differently. Read the rest of this entry »

I thought it might be fun to showcase some of the out-of-the-ordinary Photoshopping jobs we get asked to undertake from time to time and so I’ll be putting up a few examples of before and after jobs that gave me some particular pleasure when I did them.

Here’s a photo of a footballer who was the dad of one of my older customers. You’ll see that he’s missing a leg, although in real life he definitely had two.

SEO-friendly domain names are rarely available and so I was delighted to be offered two recently.

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.
