Estate Agent Photography Course

Estate Agent Photography Course

Learn How to Take You Own Estate Agent Photographs

This course will show you how to take quality interior and exterior images of homes and properties.  It will show you how to get correctly exposed rooms and balance the indoor lighting with the outside daylight. I’ll also show you how to avoid wonky shaped rooms and correct wide angle lens distortion both indoors and outside.

 Problems associated with Estate Agent Photography.

  1. To fit enough into the picture a wide angles lens is required. These can cause barrel distortion or converging verticals. I’ll show you how to fix these annoying problems.
  2. Lighting. If it’s bright outside and the room is darker this can make getting the correct exposure tricky. Sometimes it can cause flare and overly bright windows. I’ll show you two ways to solve this problem.
  3. Outdoors. Buildings can look like they are falling over or not level. We can fix this.
  4.  No blue sky. Even though the weather is nice the lighting looks flat. I can show you how to fix this so your buildings look more attractive and saleable.

I don’t expect anyone to be as good as them immediately but everyone has to start somewhere. The course they did was three months long and covered all aspects of professional photography. This two day course takes the relevant modules to create a specific course for your requirements.

What’s included in the Estate Agent Photography Course?

This would be based on parts of our Beginners Course and  the Intermediate Course, to show them how to use the camera, the HDR and RAW editing Course and the Pictures for Publication Course for the PR section. It would need to be over a minimum of two days depending on numbers.

What kit is required?

Each person would need a camera with a wide and lens and a laptop or PC with Adobe Lightroom installed. LR is available to download just before the course as a 7 day trial version

Hi Glen. Thanks for a really informative course. I can’t believe how much we crammed into just two days. The course was worth every penny and I’ve already recovered the fee several times over. Highly recommended. Jim H.

Employing a Professional Photographer…

Ideally there is no substitute for employing the services of a professional photographer. A good photographer will have the skills, experience and the correct camera and lighting equipment to produce high quality product shots every time.

…Or learn how to take your own photographs

Sometimes it’s not always practical, or cost effective, to use a professional photographer each time you need a quick staff portrait or product shot.

All our Estate Agent Photography courses are run as private tuition and tailored to your individual requirements. We can suggest equipment for you prior to the training or we can bring our own and provide a kit list so you can purchase after the course.

Courses can be here, or on location for an extra charge, and include Lightroom or Photoshop tuition. These jargon free courses are explained in simple terms and we aim to give you a good understanding of how to light your properties correctly and creatively. It’s important that you learn and understand the techniques rather than just be given a list of settings that suit one set-up scenario.

Lightroom/Photoshop for Estate Photography

 A very big part of any estate agent photography is post production. This often involves background clean-up, removing distortion, resizing images for web use plus exposure and colour correction.

If you have never used Lightroom or Photoshop before it may be better to attend the photography course first followed by the Lightroom &  Photoshop course as an additional day.

If you are a competent computer user we can include the combined Photography & Photoshop Workshops in the two days.

  • Adjust images for colour and contrast
  • Correct distortion and verticals
  • Balance indoor and outdoor exposures
  • Crop and resize for web or print purposes

If needed I have two spare Nikon cameras, lenses and flashguns available for hire at £25 per person per day.

Cost for a Two Day Estate Agent Photography Course?

The cost for 1 or 2 people here in Smeeton Westerby would be £1000 with additional students costing £400 per person per 2 day course.

If you have a training room and would like me to come to you there is an additional charge to cover travel time and expenses. If an overnight stay is required there will be a charge for accommodation and meals. Please be aware that these are intensive courses so I will require the full attention of all the students for the period of the course. They will not be able to answer phones or attend meeting during the day – it happens.

If needed I have two spare Nikon cameras and lenses available for hire at £25 per person per day.

Cheers Glen

On Location or On-Site

We can offer training at our location in Smeeton Westerby, where we will use our premises or come to your location and use your premises.

In both cases we will show how to get the very best results out of your camera equipment and available lighting. We will also provide you with a lighting and set up diagram plus a list of any specialist kit you will need.

Camera Equipment required

You will require a minimum level of equipment to attend one of these courses. If you do not have the necessary kit we may be able to provide some kit for demonstration purposes and I’ll supply a shopping list so you can buy the kit before or after the course. Ideally you will need:
 
  • A Digital SLR camera
  • A separate flashgun or studio lights
  • A sturdy tripod
  • A laptop with Lightroom or Photoshop

What if I don’t have everything for the course?

We will advise you on any special equipment when you book. We can always use our camera kit and provide you with a shopping list plus suggested suppliers during the course.

Is there any support after the course?

We offer 30 days reasonable email or phone support after the training day. You can also email us pictures for comments.

Why is it more expensive for you to travel to us?

Because I need to allow for extra travel time, extra set-up time, fuel, expenses and lugging a car load of gear around.

How many people can attend the same course?

Up to six students can attend a course but please be aware that the more students then the less individual practical time per student there will be.

This Product Photography course was exactly what I needed. It was extremely practical and everything was explained simply so we could understand. I’m certain we will be able to continue to get the results we need. Jo Davies

A really amazing day and we all learnt so much. Glen was patient and was happy to explore a multitude of different lighting set-ups and scenarios. The Photoshop session was especially worthwhile and completed the day perfectly.  John Bilton

This course was particularly good with regards to understanding the exposure triangle and I found this invaluable. It’s quite an intensive course but I feel a lot happier finding my way around the various camera settings. Now to start saving up for the next one.
Karen Collinson

I thoroughly enjoyed this course. Everything I wanted to know about the more advanced techniques was covered. I’m really looking forward to going out and trying what I’ve learnt, especially regarding shutter speeds combined with aperture settings.
