Property Photography and Floor Plans
Much of my work in recent years is property photography. I work for various local estate agents in York, as well as owners of guest houses and b and bs. Professional property photography is so important to showcase each place at it's best. Hopefully each property will be nice and tidy when I arrive (it's not always, but usually!) It's important to declutter as much as possible, and little things like putting away towels, toilet rolls, pet bowls and bins, really do help.
I use a wide angle lens, 10mm - 20mm and a monopod, which I love! I used to use a tripod, but the camera I currently use is brilliant with low light, so I don't need to use a really slow stutter speed, hence a monopod is enough, and it allows me to get in to tight corners, as well as capture high up exterior shots.
In most property shoots, I also provide a fully measured and detailed floor plan. This is recent skill that I have taught myself, and something I really enjoy doing. The biggest floor plan I have ever done was a 20 bedroom hotel, showing all rooms, fixtures, fittings and communal areas - which was a challenge!
I love doing property photography and think it a really important thing for anyone selling, letting or advertising a property.
