We are excited to announce the official launch of the Association of Real Estate Photographers, AREP (arephotographers.org). We already have 20+ companies representing over 2,500 full-time, part-time, and contract photographers. Please join your colleagues by signing up at AREPhotographers.org.
It is very important that we all come together to make our voices heard and become a resource for the industry. AREP’s vision is to elevate the stature of real estate photography in the industry, driving higher quality, service, and new offerings, all in an effort to grow your companies, and the industry as a whole.
As a group, we can have a seat at the table with the rest of the real estate industry groups. We have been able to talk to the MLS Association and its members. We spoke with the NAR General Counsel about licensing. We are in the process with RESO, the Real Estate Standards Organization of including photographer information in the real estate data standard for better tracking and protection.
Some, all, or maybe none of these are important to you. Let us know what is important to you so we can try and help. These are not short term issues and no one company will be able to address them alone. We want your voice heard rather than being dictated to.
