Straight from Nathan:
Tackling real estate photography was a challenge beyond other work I did. It was harder than I realized, and after fishing through tons of techniques out there I zeroed in on some great advice, including tutorials by Rich Baum and others in the Facebook Real Estate Photography group. After getting a workflow down that was working for me, I started a YouTube channel that garnered quite a bit of interest and a bunch of questions, so I thought I'd put all of this together in a series of books. Although these books are in paperback, I also created e-books for each one so you could keep a book open on one monitor while working on another, following instructions step-by step. My goal was to keep it simple, skipping the long, drawn-out sciencey stuff, and just dive right into making things work.
What people are saying:
- For a technical, "how to" manual, the author's tone and style is friendly, thoughtful, and feels like a face-to-face lesson with a pro. This is a must read for photographers looking to broaden their skills and tap into the lucrative Real Estate marketplace.
- I've been shooting real estate photos for 4+ years and learned several new techniques I will apply to my workflow. This book is a great companion to Nathan's videos on his You Tube channel and I highly recommend It to anyone interested in real estate photography.
- I am a professional portrait photographer and am now trying to get into real estate photography. While I have done a ton of searching on the internet, this answered so many of my questions, and I am so happy to have found this book! From his recommended equipment, to camera height, to window pulls, this book is fantastic. Thank you Nathan Cool!
