I'm a licensed agent and general contractor in California; although I currently live in Sunriver, OR. Since the passing of my husband a few years ago, and needing to support myself, I am looking to switch gears. I've always had a good eye for design, have an appreciation for real estate, and think real estate photography may be a good option for me. Do you have any YouTube videos, etc. with "how-tos" for real estate photography? Specifically using the Sony A6000 since that is the kind of camera that I have.
Yes, the Sony A6xxx line is a good way to get started in real estate photography. To start off with, be sure to take a look at the post here on the PFRE blog that Wayne Capili did on his discovery of the A6000 as a real estate camera. Wayne's post talks about the other gear you need to go with the A6000 (wide-angle lens, strobes, and strobe controller) to do real estate photography. Many readers here on the blog use the A6000 or one of its follow-up models, A6300 & A6500.
There is nothing unique about learning real estate photography with a Sony A6xxx. All the books, video series, coaching, and workshops we promote here on PFRE will help you get started.
Last minute update: Just a few hours before this post went live, Sony announced the A6400, a new camera in this line that will be shipping in February for $900. For more info see:
If you are getting an A6xxx this is probably the way to go.
