Calling All Writers!

Published: 03/07/2019

Since taking over PFRE, I’ve thought a lot about my vision for where PFRE can go over the next few years. In previous articles/updates, I’ve shared that one of my goals is to include the community’s input as much as possible in helping me to make key decisions that will move PFRE forward.

For example, when I first started getting serious about the PFRE Conference, I reached out to the community with questions/polls and you all played a huge role in the decision making process that ultimately led to us deciding to host the first ever PFRE Conference in Las Vegas. That was such a great decision. In fact, we sold out the early-bird seats in less than three days. The community also helped to inform me of which categories needed adjusting in the Photographer of the Month (POTM) contests. This too, has proven to be a success, as evidenced by the great number of entries we’ve received in the brand new contest categories of Detail Shot and Dining Room Shot.

This type of inclusiveness is extremely important to me because part of my hope/vision for PFRE is to have the community participate more directly in the success of the blog--not just in providing input on key decisions like the ones I’ve mentioned above, but also in sharing the enormous wealth of experience and talent that exists in our PFRE family. After all, the absolute foundation of this blog is to share information that helps real estate photographers to be successful. This is both our mission statement and our tagline. PFRE has a rich history of photographers helping photographers as can be seen by the sharing of ideas and knowledge that takes place on the blog, the PFRE Flickr groups and the POTM contests. I believe that this sharing is one of the cornerstones of our “culture” here--one that we’ve all enjoyed and benefited from.

In that spirit, I’m reaching out with an open call to anyone who feels that they have something to offer the PFRE community and would like the opportunity to share their knowledge and become a contributor to the blog. I think that it’s important to hear from as wide an array of professionals in our field as possible. So, if you’ve got wisdom and experience to share and you enjoy writing, then please give some thought to joining our team of contributors. This doesn’t mean that I’m looking only for input from the most seasoned shooters. Newer shooters can offer fresh perspectives on a wide host of topics/challenges in our field, that can add value to all. For that matter, I'm not even looking for just photographers; anyone with experience in business, accounting, law, social media, marketing, etc., is encouraged to put forward their name as a contributor.

I encourage you to get involved so that we can continue to build and grow PFRE's legacy as the most collaborative community of like-minded professionals in our industry.

If you’re interested, then please let me know by leaving a comment below or reaching out to me directly via the green "Ask a Question" button at the top right corner of the PFRE homepage.

  1. I’m new to your PFRE community, and would love to contribute as a photographer, RE photographer, writer, blogger, storyteller and communicator. A voice from the field of view.

  2. I'd be happy to contribute as well. I know we talk about the important stuff ie. Photography here but perhaps a few topics on the business side of things. Mileage, taxes, deductions, write offs, advertising / marketing, etc. We all still need to make a profit at the end of the day and if we keep a few extra bucks in our pockets, I'm not sure anyone would complain.

  3. Hi Brandon,

    I've been a journalist for 30 years, a photographer longer but I'm new to the RE Game. I think I bring an interesting perspective.

    Feel free to reach out.

  4. I am new to the PFRE community here and a little newer to RE photography, but do have years experience shooting portraits, families and black and white landscapes, as well as formal experience in social media and marketing.
