The Real Scoop on Real Estate Photography with Karen Thaemert, Cr. Photog, CPP


Real Estate work is a form of volume photography.  On the surface, it may seem simple because you are not dealing with people and posing.  Quickly, you learn that it is not as easy as it seems on the surface.  This class goes over all of the basics from gear and rules to shooting and lighting techniques.  You will learn tips and tricks for working quickly and getting the job delivered efficiently.  Practical topics on workflows are covered from booking the job, to the shoot, all the way through post-processing and delivery.  Students walk away from the class with the beginning steps and knowledge for successfully photographing a home for real estate.

Karen will also discuss marketing and cross-marketing ideas.

This full-day class also includes an excursion to a real house and a demonstration of how to use different shooting/lighting techniques.
