Lesson Info

How Much to Charge for Real Estate Photography Services

The last question you might have right now is what about pricing? How much do should you charge for your services? This is going to be a huge range depending on your experience where you live. What the market is like here in Los Angeles, it's super competitive because houses are super expensive, but there's also a lot of photographers. So you have to kind of balance that or maybe you live in an area where there's not as many photographers and you can charge more or maybe you live in an area where there's not a lot of turnover. And so these jobs are going to be fewer, fewer and farther between. So you do have to charge more. It really is going to depend on your location and making this a full time job again is going to depend if there's enough work out there. My advice is always to go back to your hourly rate. So figure out what your hourly rate is. Your ideal hourly rate is and calculate how much time are you going to spend taking photos? How much time are you going to spend editing ph...

otos? How much time are you going to spend emailing and working with that client delivering those photos total all of that up and that's going to be a package price in the beginning. You might not know what this is and it might take a few times to figure out what this truly is going to be. But I don't like the idea of giving clients an hourly rate. I want to give a package rate. So I want it to be clean and say for one home, you're going to get 50 photos back, you're going to get exterior photos, interior photos, aerial photos and it will be X price $1000 2000 dollars, whatever it is. And if you can grow and start to get consistent work, add in the cost of the equipment that you have to buy or if you have to rent equipment, the education that you have, all of that comes into play with running a business for yourself and you can't just pay yourself for the one hour that you're at a location, taking photos that would not be worth your time. So this is going to take some time. But if you have follow up questions about rates or if you have an idea, please let me know in the class or join the photography and friends group and community where there's other photographers going through the same process with you and we'll be able to more help you more with your specific situation. Thank you. So much for watching this lesson. And I hope it gives you some great advice for starting your business and finding your first clients.

Purchased last week to help get my skills up, I have taken a handfull of property photos already and the clients loved them. I wanted to understand the process and standards used with most properties in order to improve my work and this course DELIVERED ! Grat value for investing in yourself and future clients . Philip goes into detail telling you setting, how to take the photo and why , also goes into editing with a few trick to help deliver amazing results.

The course is a comprehensive learning experience and Philip's passion and expertise in photography and teaching are evident throughout the course. Key highlights for me included mastering lighting techniques, photo blending for high-quality interiors, and advanced strategies like the 'Flambient' process. This was straight forward, and easy to understand. I live in Australia an grateful that you kept the information relevant to any country.

Hey Philip, Just want to thank you for putting in the time and effort putting this course together. I’ve been shooting for 20 years but never really spent enough time on PS. This course really focuses on what you really need to know. Everything is really straight to the point. Philip provides images so you can follow along and really get a good work flow going. I personally enjoyed the
