Many beginning real estate photographers that I've helped to get started over in the recent past express a desire to find someone in their local area that would mentor them or give one-on-one instruction in some aspect real estate photography. In some cases it's possible to set up this kind of personal instruction but for the most part it's impractical. Here's why:
Scott Hargis's Lighting For Real Estate Photography video series is a great example. It demonstrated to me the huge potential of video tutorials in the area of learning real estate photography. Even though I attended one of Scott's first workshops in Seattle in 2008, where I met Scott, but I've learned his lighting technique from his ebook and his video tutorial series, not the workshop. Why? because with books and video tutorials like Nadia says, "you can replay them over and over."
I'm a big believer in this new form of education and I'm committed to make more if it happen. Despite the fact that there will occasionally be great workshops like Scott Hargis and Malia Campbell put on and you occasionally may be able to get someone to do some one-on-one personal training, online video tutorials and e-books are going to provide the majority of real estate photography training.
