Shooting your property

10 professional photography tips

  • Shoot during the day and switch on all the lights.
  • Shoot horizontally (landscape) as much as possible, even bathrooms!
  • Respect the perspective; shoot straight.
  • No flash, no filters.
  • No fish-eye or panoramic pictures.
  • No iPad/iPhone pictures.
  • Shoot a few details: a nice piece of art, a good toy, a pretty window.
  • No people - or pets - in shots.
  • Send us the largest files possible.
  • No more than 20-25 pictures please.

Preparing your property

  • Clean the house, making sure mirrors, bathrooms and glass surfaces (anything that reflects light) are clean and smudge free.
  • Tidy away any loose paperwork from tables and shelves.
  • In the kitchen, put away anything that doesn’t belong in the shot. Aim for clean, uncluttered surfaces.
  • Tidy the garden.
  • Put away personal photos that you do not want to be seen.
  • Bring out the best toys that you think would look good in pictures. The much loved, much chewed bunny needs to be put away.
  • If you have the time, flick through design magazines or websites. Get an idea of what looks good on camera and try to style your house as you’d like it to be seen.
  • You might want to dress each room a little - e.g. add some plates and cups to the dining room table, set up a doll’s house in the playroom - so people can see how the rooms are being used.
