Real Estate Photography (Resort) Portfolio Critique 3

Jon recently requested an image critique with the following comment clipped from Youtube:

"Love the way you explain things Andrew. I used to do all my interiors using HDR with no lighting until I purchased your 1 light course, bought a powerful monolight and improved my images 100%. Friends and family tell me my images are amazing which is great for confidence but I think I would benefit more from a professional telling me where I could improve to get to the next level. So if you ever do any more of these videos please could you take a look at my portfolio on my website."

Jon is producing awesome images, especially his twilight exteriors. I attempt to make the case he may need to use a bit more artificial light in many cases...

The following video describes what limited items do in fact make their way into my gear bag.

HOW TO NEGOTIATE AS A REAL ESTATE PHOTOGRAPHER

Having "take it or leave it" rates as a photographer is much more likely to result in you losing and/or having less satisfied clients. In the video, I discuss what I feel is the best way to give yourself some wiggle room to be able to negotiate your rates, without calling too much attention to your pricing adjustments...
