What's a Day in the Life of a Real Estate Photographer Like?

Updated: Jan 10, 2023

Well, let me give you a behind-the-scenes look at what it's like at Workman Photography! First things first, no two days are ever the same as a real estate photographer. Every property is unique, which means that we have to be prepared for anything. That said, there are a few things that are a constant in our daily routines.

One of those constants is checking the weather conditions - as a real estate photographer, it's important that we know what to expect on the day of the shoot. We'll usually check the forecast the day before and again in the morning to make sure that we're prepared for any potential weather issues.

At the time of booking the shoot, we will coordinate with real estate agent and/or homeowners to figure out when and where to meet at the property. For most homes, we average around 20-30 minutes on site for real estate photos, or around 1.5 hrs for our Complete Package.

Once we arrive at the property, the first thing we'll do is adjust any interior lights or blinds to make sure that we're getting the best possible lighting for the photos. From there, we'll start working our way through the interior of the property, taking photos of each room as well as any standout features.

If the property has a particularly unique exterior or if the client has requested it, we'll also bring out our drone to capture some aerial video and photos. This is always a fun and exciting part of the job, as it allows us to really showcase the property in a unique way.

After the shoot is over, we'll head back to the office to edit and process the photos. This is where we really bring the images to life, carefully adjusting color, lighting, and composition to make sure that the final product is absolutely perfect. We also offer a turnaround of 24 hrs for most products!

So there you have it - a day in the life of a real estate photographer at Workman Photography. It's a lot of hard work, but it's also incredibly rewarding to see the finished product and know that we've helped a client showcase their property in the best possible light. Plus, with all the driving we do, we get to enjoy plenty of Timmies along the way - it's a win-win!
