YRSCommercial, Solihull property photography, interior
design, furnishings and lifestyle photographer.
We mainly shoot interiors for business and property investors. Property has decreased over the years although it's always nice to work with Bancon Homes, Barratts and building organisations like that.
Property revenue for the studio has really been replaced by interior work and commissions, photography for estate agents has restricted itself to the premium market as owners now expect a free set of images. Agents, therefore, do it themselves rather than bring in a professional at this level of property or you have the portals like Bidvine or Bark which suggest rates lower than commercially viable at times but set home-buyers expectations anyway. So we don't bother engaging - we can't be bothered with 50 quid, use a phone!
It's a shame really as all property needs the best effort when it comes to images - they are the bit that sells the property most - first reactions of the pre-home-buyer. We do, do a lot for distant agents clients in our Highlands & Scottish studio such as eHouse as they manage their business and housing stock from London and there is no surveyor as such taking the images at the time of the survey locally. So yes, we do all sort of property for the online agents but we charge a minimum of two to three hours work, which covers a little travel time, shooting and then post production. So, there you are why we charge so much - it's the time.
Our approach is the same - regardless of property size - we just get more opportunities to create images when the property is a large structure or has specific architectural features. Studio lights are used, not 'off the camera' flash or more lately very high ISO rate and no flash at all. We're there for more than 45 minutes, which is how most property agents work especially online and of course you get more than 15 images, so you can choose the best angles to sell your home - we can even put you up an online light box of all the images free of charge that you can link to, so even more options when it comes to selling - it costs us nothing to put your images there! So to sum up, we do lots of property photography BUT we do not do property photography for £50!
Property Investment Portfolios.
Much of our work is beyond the simple property sale market - it is for property investment portfolios and for land management agents, when the property is an important asset and, therefore, like any other valuable asset has to be shown at its best - sometimes to sell as a premium price or perhaps for a use of corporate valuation for business statements and charts of accounts.

Construction & Housing.
As we mentioned in the introductory paragraph we regularly work with housing businesses like Bancon Homes, Robertson Group & Barratts. We are employed at two levels with these business': the first is during construction where we capture the quality of build, architectural style and the skills involed, materials used - that sort of thing. The second stage is the finished product level where we create images for brochures, advertising and public relations. YRSCommercial, Property Photographer Solihull.
