Portland Real Estate Photography

Tell Your Home’s Story

According to®, it takes an average of 65 days to get an offer on a house.

However, this number can be quite easily influenced by factors such as location and time of the year.

While these aspects are not within your control, the best you can do is impress potential buyers with the most effective promotional tool there is: images of the property. Studies indicate that the human brain processes visual information automatically and independently of what we know or expect.

Our Portland real estate photography service can win buyers over with high-quality, appealing images and video that persuade action and help seal the deal.

High Dynamic Range Photos

The exceptional output enabled by high dynamic range (HDR) photography has made it very popular for capturing real estate images. By enhancing the dynamic range of photographs, you are adjusting contrast ratios of light to dark to make the final photo visually compelling. This is a post-processing task where a series of images taken at different exposures are combined using image editing software to bring more detail to the shadows and highlight the best parts of every photo.

Balanced Look and Feel

Speedlight flashes are popularly used for architecture, real estate, interior design and low-light scenes. It is ideal when you want to make the foreground bright, bring out details and eliminate unflattering features. Professional lighting offers a nice, balanced look and feel to real estate photographs.

Emotional and Memorable

While a camera can capture an image accurately, a single image cannot always create an instant emotional connect with viewers’ minds unless the subject is evocative in some way. It is often harder for property photos, which potential buyers would have seen several of during their purchase journey. To stand out from the rest, photos of the property should try to appeal to buyers’ emotions and stay memorable. Our photography makes it possible to create emotionally engaging imagery that makes your brain experience a lot more than a regular photograph.

Professional Lighting

Lighting is a critical aspect of photography. The good news is that there is abundant natural light and artificial light available to tell the story you want to convey through property photographs. However, only a professional photographer can strategically use the light to create the right effect. Similar to HDR, effective use of light can evoke the required feeling, whether one of wholesomeness or opulence. A comprehensive understanding of lighting effects is the starting point of a striking photo. Depending on the lighting situation, I first explore the best direction to take to compliment the property and its surroundings.

Natural Aesthetic

Lighting is particularly important in portraying the natural richness and aesthetic of landscapes, textures, and atmosphere authentically. Understanding the relationship between the light and background are essential to professional real estate photography. For interior shots, you want to capture the whole experience of the room – professional lighting can accentuate the texture of carpet, the grain in wood cabinet, and is essential in capturing large open concept rooms.

Ideally, photos should be shot from angles that showcase the property’s facade appealingly while also capturing the drama of the landscape. The lighting should not only convince potential buyers about the aesthetics of the property but also the scenic views that they – as future owners – can experience.

Light, angles, contrast, intensity all work harmoniously to generate the right impact. We do everything necessary to ensuring an attention-grabbing, visually pleasing output.

Aerial Photography

Why Use Aerial Photography for Real Estate Promotions?

The Federal Aviation Association has issued hundreds of permits for the commercial use of drones, and a lion’s share of these permits have been bagged by the real estate industry seeking to showcase property listings through aerial photos and videos. If you’re looking for cutting-edge Portland real estate photography that combines 21st century technology with professional photography skills focusing on aesthetic balance and high visual quality, you’ve come to the right place.

  • Consider the use of drones and virtual reality for the following benefits
  • The opportunity to present the entire property, land and surroundings
  • Capture the property from all angles, clearly indicating its layout and features
  • A good idea about the neighborhood and amenities in proximity
  • Allow potential buyers to explore a 3D space from the comfort of their couch
Join the Future of Real Estate

Traditional real estate photography has its merits, but aerial images and VR tours are fast becoming the preferred means of viewing and reviewing properties. Not only are they convenient from potential buyers’ perspective, but ultimately most advantageous to real estate agents, property listing websites and property owners (sellers).

360 virtual tours

A virtual reality 3D tour of a property offers the kind of immersive experience that still photographs cannot. It is the next best thing to an open house inspection of the property, providing complete and accurate interior and exterior views of real estate. Buyers enjoy the flexibility to zoom in/out or revisit a particular section of the property, and get an accurate representation of the layout, look and feel.
