Are there any photographers that give real estate agents (Realtors) the option to select photos for processing from all the photos that have been shot at a property?
It is a process where the photographer uploads all the unprocessed photos to a website and the realtor choose a number of photos before the photographer processes them.
What are the pro’s and con’s of the this system?
My take on Chris’s question is that even the picky client real estate photography clients are not going to want to review unprocessed photos. This seems like a tedious, inefficient process.
I think a much better way to get input from a client is to:
- Do a quick walk-through of the property before the shoot and discuss which angles you intend to shoot in each room. This will give them the opportunity to give input in guiding your shoot. So they can express what they think is important and what is not. If you take notes during this process you can agree up front how many photos you are going to deliver.
- And/or I can also imagine picky listing agents liking to look at the LCD screen on your camera or each image on a CamRanger display if you gave them the chance. But reviewing unprocessed photos seems like a last resort alternative. If the client wanted to review photos, I would have them review processed photos.
Does anyone use a review process like Chris is proposing?
