Dave in Australia pointed out this article on Fstoppers titled: The Biggest Dangers Photographers Face. The article points out several specific on-site dangers for real estate photographers:
- Make sure homeowners are expecting you. One Atlanta real estate photographer was shot by a surprised homeowner who wasn't notified of the shoot.
- Beware, many listing agents aren't very good at making homeowners aware that pets should be contained or not in the home during shoots and showings!
- In some areas, real estate photographers encountering squatters in vacant properties is not uncommon.
- Many real estate photographers are confronted by nosy neighbors who demand identification or simply call the police at the suspicion of criminal intent by the photographer.
Have you encountered any of these issues while shooting property?
