Update to The PFRE Real Estate Photography Directory

September 2nd, 2015

Back in March of this year we dropped the yearly reoccurring payment aspect of registering for a listing in the PFRE Real Estate Photographers Directory. We didn’t announce this change until now because it only affected those that had set up a reoccurring registration. We also wanted to make sure that all the reoccurring payments in PayPal […]

The Latest In The Evolution Of The Real Estate Photographer/Videographer Directory

July 3rd, 2013

I wanted to bring up the PFRE Real Estate Photographer Directory again because back in mid-May when we launched this new version of the directory there were a few problems where directory registrations would not be successful if you ran into an error entering your data. We have that  fixed now so if you had […]

Now that the new directory is up and running I wanted to point out some of the cool new features of the new directory: Three types of entries: Just as it’s been for years, there are three types of entries.

May 7th, 2013

The Worldwide PFRE Directory started out as a spreadsheet in 2006. We’ve made several upgrades to it over the years, and today Cristi,  my “WordPress mechanic”, is in the process of implementing the latest upgrade/redesign to the directory.

Real Estate Photography Directory Improvements

March 23rd, 2010

The Real Estate Photographer’s directory continues to be the PFRE blog’s highest traffic page (other than the front page). It currently averages about 3600 visitors a month. Which means there are around 120 agents a day using the directory to find a real estate photographer. The reason for this is because the PFRE blog and […]

Real Estate Photographer Directory Space is Limited

September 21st, 2009

The outage that the real estate photographer directory had last week (the page wasn’t down, I just couldn’t add entries for a few days) confirmed my fears that the size of this kind of static directory page is limited. The size is limited by the maximum available memory on the PFRE blog’s WordPress server. I […]

Temporarily Not Accepting Directory Registrations

September 11th, 2009

Last night when attempting to ad another entry to the Real Estate Photographer’s Directory I discovered that I can no longer edit the directory page. So until I get this problem fixed I’m sorry to say I have to temporarily stop accepting directory registrations. The problem is do the fact that the directory page has […]

A Fantastic Thing Happened On Friday

June 7th, 2009

I was working away on Friday when my Google chat came alive and a friend told me he was going to “make my day”. And indeed he did! He’d managed to pick up the PhotographyForRealEstate.COM domain for me in an auction. So I now have the .com domain for PFRE in addition to the .net […]

New Types of Real Estate Photographer Directory Entries

February 7th, 2009

At the request of directory customers I’ve created two new types of REP directory entries: A premium directory entry: Back in October Vicaso asked to buy a special directory entry at the top instead of having a directory entry for each office. So the help of the Vicaso I came up with the premium directory […]

New Process For Choosing Real Estate Photographer of Month

June 15th, 2008

I’d like to start a process that gives broader participation in choosing the PFRE photographer of the month. I think this would make this award much more meaningful and significant if the choice was made with in a more collaborative way than just me sitting here in my swivel chair making a unilateral decision based […]

Real Estate Photographer Directory Price Increase

June 12th, 2008

As of June 13 I’ve raise the price of being listed in the Real Estate Photographer Directory to $60 a year. The reasons are: I’m getting so many directory listings that maintaining it is using up too much of my time. I feel like I have a tiger by the tail and it’s about to […]

Real Estate Photographer Directory Change and Photographer of The Month

January 31st, 2008

I’ve changed the real estate photographer directory to a pay product. The update work and related interaction has increased to a much higher level than I expected. It’s taking over my life! I’ve had a huge number of requests to be listed on the Interior Photographers list on the left side-bar. In the past the […]

The New Improved Real Estate Photographers Directory

January 3rd, 2008

I’ve re-thought and re-designed the Real Estate Photographer directory. What got me going on this project is a reader that is experienced in search engine fine points pointed out that the two previous forms I maintained the directory in (a google spread sheet and a PDF file) were not very search engine friendly. And to […]
