What are you working on next?
I'm currently working on the second book in this series which goes into detail about the recommended equipment, technique and workflow process for real estate photography and other marketing services. It includes a series of detailed instructions and images explaining how to photograph each type of room and property. The purpose of the second book is to improve the quality of services provided to your clients.
The Business of Real Estate Photography provides the blueprints to start your real estate photography business and assists with developing a thorough understanding of the market and creating an effective business strategy and marketing plan. It also includes free templates to help with market research, financial planning and marketing activities.
