Is there still a place for photographs in Real Estate marketing?

Of course there is!

Still photographs have a use in newspaper advertising, on websites, signboards and handouts.

But of course, the photographs must do justice to the property. That’s where Imagination Photography comes in. We work with you to capture every aspect of the property, to show all the beauty and benefits for prospective buyers.

Combine still photographs and video to provide the best coverage of any property.



Benefits of Superior Real Estate Photography

Superior quality real estate photographs do not have to cost the earth. However, superior quality photographs are more likely to entice prospective buys who will get them to actually see the property, help get a sale at in a shorter timeframe and get a higher price for the property.

All of that makes the client happier, gives them more money in their pockets, gets the stress of the sale over sooner and makes you the agent or property owner, look better. 

As an agent who gets faster results and more money for the client, you look better too. You have the results to prove it, and that gets more listings.

Is spending $200-$250 on photography worthwhile? Well, just remember, a 1% difference on the sale prices of a $400,000 property is $4000. Isn’t it worth that kind of investment? Even spending an extra $300 on a walk-through video will more than pay for itself.

Tip – Presentation of the Property: 

Generally, the neater that the property is at the time of the photography, the better it will look.  Anything out of place will show up in the photos

  • De-clutter the house.
  • Turn on all lights and ensure they are working.
  • Ensure that surfaces are clean.
  • Clear the kitchen of appliances, food and cleaning items from the benchtops.
  • Remove personal items from the bathrooms, including bottles from the showers. Hang attractive towels.
  • Ensure beds are neatly made.
  • Make basic repairs.
  • Remove personal items, such as photographs and clothing. Potential buyers prefer not to see that the property is already ‘taken’.
  • Mow the lawn 2–3 days prior to the photoshoot.
  • Weed visible areas.
  • Clean outside paved areas/decks and outside furniture.
  • Do not park vehicles in the driveway or directly in front of the property.
  • Remove or hide rubbish bins.
  • Remove washing.
  • Turn on any pool filters and water features.


If I am shooting a property and I see something jarring, I will move or remove it (i.e. a brightly coloured child’s toy underneath the dining table or an orange basketball in the middle of the lawn). However, it is not my job to stage the property. This needs to be done by the owner or the agent BEFORE I arrive. My time at the property is to photograph it, not clean it.

“Tony has always been great for us. Not only are his photographs of the highest quality, but he is also very flexible with regards to rescheduling for weather or property difficulties.

Overall first class service.”
