Cape Town Property Photographer FAQ
Cape Town Property Photographer FAQ, most asked questions are answered here.
How do we book you for a property shoot?
There are 4 ways of going about this. You can call me on 072 751 6904, or sms/whatsapp me on this same number or you can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
How long in advance do we need to book you?
There are days when I can do it on the same day and then there are times I can only help in a day or two. It all depends how busy we are. You will never wait more than 2 to 3 days.
How does the process work?
Once you have made contact I will check my calendar and give you the next available date and time. I also give you the next three day’s openings and you can choose what slot you like. Once we have decided on a date and time you give me the address and I will meet you there. I can also meet you at the office if it is more convenient for you.
What do you expect of me as an agent before a shoot?
Most importantly is that the owner knows a photographer is coming. House must not have too much clutter lying around. Loose clothing, dishes etc. Also if there is a pool it would be nice if the Creepy is out. Doing it on the same day leaves wet spots all over the brick paving.
How many photos do we get?
My motto is “rather too many than not enough”. I take photos of all the rooms and also as many angles as possible. The same goes for exterior shots. You can always delete the photos you don’t want or rotate them on sites like Property24 and Private Property.
What format are the photos in?
Photos are professionally edited and ready for websites such as Property24 and Private Property as per their requirements.
When will I get the photos?
Your photos will be done within 24 hours. I have never delivered photos more than 24 hours after a shoot. 90% of the time the photos are in your possession the very next morning. There are times I can finish it on the same day depending how many shoots I have.
How do I get my photos?
I either send it to you via email or File Sharing (Dropbox or Google Drive)
What areas do you cover?
I do most areas. Atlantic Seaboard, Southern Suburbs, Northern Suburbs, West Coast, Helderberg, Wellington, Paarl, Franschoek, Stellenbosch. Distance is not an issue because you get your photos within 24 hours.
Do you work for a specific Property Agent?
No. I freelance. There are certain areas though that I work with specific agents.
How does payment work?
Once the photos are in your possession we will send you an invoice.
What equipment do you use?
I have 2 x Canon 6D’s with a 15-30mm Wide angle lens. These lenses are different to fisheye lenses as they don’t “slope” to the sides. Photos with the 15-30mm are wide without making it look unrealistic.
