Tips for a perfect photo shoot
First impressions are everything and your goal should be for your property to outshine the competition. This list is a guide only and will help ensure your property looks at its best for the photography shoot.
Move vehicles from the driveway and put away any bikes, children’s toys etc. Clean up any rubbish (paper, bags etc) and hide any bins. Mow any overgrown lawns and any obvious weeds. Sweep up leaves and grass cuttings. If possible trim back any overgrown bushes/trees that maybe blocking the full view of the property.
Clear all the benches of any clutter. Small appliances make the bench space disappear. We recommend that you remove the toaster, coffee pot, knife block, can opener, hand mixers etc. Conceal any electrical cords that are visible, or remove the appliances altogether. Clear the refrigerator of any magnets, photos etc. Clean all kitchen appliances such as range hoods, stove top, ovens. Conceal any rubbish bins.
Dining rooms and meal areas
It is a good idea to set any tables with a centrepiece such as a candle or flowers. Ensure the area is free from any clutter and once again please hide any electrical cords.
Shower/bath items should be placed under the sink. Clear counters.
Open all window blinds and drapes to reveal the view. Replace any faulty light globes. Turn inside lights on. Turn televisions off. Make all the beds and hide any clothes in the wardrobes. Hide any electrical cables from items such as as clock radios. Conceal any rubbish bins. Remove pet food bowls and toys. Put away jewellery and valuables. Use a professional photographer and copywriter.
