Three Part Real Estate Photography Book Series by Nathan Cool


From gear to editing, composition, lighting, settings, techniques and more, real estate photographer Nathan Cool provides a comprehensive guide for shooting high-quality interior real estate photography from start to finish. Learn how to not just take, but also "make" great real estate interior photos with an efficient workflow and cost-effective tools to speed up your shooting and editing processes. With over 70 color images showing real-world examples, screenshots, and diagrams, you’ll learn the principles that Nathan Cool and many other professional real estate photographers apply to their work. Far from being a dry academic tome, this book shows practical techniques that prove profitable for a real estate photography business. See how you can stand out from today’s crowd of camera clickers and show clients you charge like a pro because you shoot like one.

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!
