Because there have been several times this year that I couldn't get up to Issaquah to shoot my wife Levi's listings, Levi hired various real estate photographers in the Seattle area too shoot some of her listings. Being able to observe the whole process of hiring and getting results from real estate photographers from the receiving end of the process has been very insightful for me.
One thing I learned from seeing how different real estate photographers deliver photos is that box.net is in my opinion a best-in-class photo delivery mechanism. I've used box.net before and even did a post on it back in June of this year but it really didn't sink-in how fantastic this service was for photo delivery until I experienced it on the receiving end. Here's why I think box.net is so great for this purpose:
If you do a lot of shoots you would probably need a 5 gig or larger account but if you are just starting out a free 1 gig account is fine for several shoots a week. If you deliver photos to clients you need to look at this service!
