Ashley in South Carolina asks:
We've been asked to add video, virtual staging, and floor plans to our real estate photography services. What resources can you suggest in these areas?
These are very common ways to expand a real estate photography business. Here are some useful resources:
This is best done by an experienced post-processing company. Imagtor.com is a good post-processor for this kind of work.
Some tablet apps claim to do this with a camera but I've found this to be much more difficult and frustrating than it appears. Matterport is another option but is too expensive for many markets. This is why most real estate photographers making floor plans use a laser measuring device and a sheet of graph paper. They can then have their sketch turned into a 2D or 3D floorplan at a number of services. Floorplanonline.com is also a way to get into making floor plans.
