See what some of them have to say.
I'm trying to "do my homework" before embarking on my photography career and am hoping to start with real estate. As a novice I did find many of the tips and tricks helpful and felt like I can walk away having a better sense of how this job works. As a former teacher and presenter in another field, I'd have to agree with many of the other reviewers that this presentation was hard to follow and a little frustrating to watch. I think the slides were organized in a thoughtful manner and touched on many good points, but the talking itself tended to drift around. I was really hoping to get a little more "in depth" on each point but instead I felt like Marc would start explaining the point and then Tiffany would swoop in and veer the conversation in another unrelated direction, leaving us with just a few surface-level comments and not exploring the issue in any depth (which really would have only needed another 2-3 minutes of explaining and there would have been so much more information!). I feel like if they would have rehearsed or presented this topic a few times and then recorded it, we'd have a completely different course here. They are sweet people who obviously have a ton of great experience, take wonderful photos, and are willing to share their knowledge....I just wish I could have gotten a little more depth and organization in the talking points! Also, I have a feeling I'll be photographing lots of 50's style ramblers and split levels here in Minnesota - let's get some "real middle class" examples!
For the price, I would recommend this for basic tips & tricks to go out and experiment with. For an absolute beginner of equipment, you may need a course on using camera, flash, wizards, etc. before finding this valuable. I have been asked to do some real estate photography recently and was looking for best practices and tricks on things such as bathroom's (tight spaces) and such. Also on lighting rooms and spaces. For $20 (that I paid) I think it was worth the insight, however, I would pay $90 for a course that did a preliminary walkthrough like what was presented, then perhaps some focus on pricing models with handouts available even as examples (how to present to the client) and even if the numbers were null, a model for starting at XXX adding XX per sq. foot, per picture, per scenario. Everyone lives in different real estate markets and not all of us are shooting as high end houses... so actual pricing wouldn't be relevant. However, like I said, a pricing model would help. Many of these reviews were negative for what one could get out of the course.... like I said, it was worth $15-20, not much more as it was simply a powerpoint style presentation, zero handouts. Handouts would have boosted the value of the course by providing equipment lists, pricing model examples, and perhaps a shots list incorporating important seller points. I did like how they went over shooting views of what it is like to LIVE in the house and then shots OF the house. I felt that was a valuable tip for a piece of real estate that has those potential views. I liked the casualness of the couple, they talked just fine together (not sure what those complaints were about) - I only wish that this was a meatier course, handouts again, would make it that much more appealing. :)
Great subject, enthusiastic teachers. Unfortunately this class has not been as informative as many of the classes I've taken at creative live. The information that would be most helpful would be pricing, how to charge for real estate photography and the process to creating a successful business. It's possible for me to get a book on architecture photography and get these tips for the price of a book however with the price of this class I expect industry experts to give me present day insider tips not just the basics of the photography. The presenters skills could be a little bit better, although they seem very friendly and likable they spoke over each other too much and hurried through their presentation.
