This process may sound simple, but it’s crucial as you would need to align your creativity to their preferences to avoid dissatisfied clients. In doing this, it does not only allow them to edit and cross out unnecessary photos or those that don't suit their taste or brand, but it also allows them to ensure you have captured the house’s features adequately, especially those that they wanted to parade in the market.
They might ask you to retake or reshoot some photos from a different angle or photograph another section of the property is always considered.
But take note that these changes are best rectified while you’re still on the site rather than going back for another shoot. Now, once you finish your review, make sure to count the agent’s photos so that they know how many they’ll be paying for.
If the agent is on a budget and wants to reduce the number of photos they’ll be taking, help them choose which photos you think will highlight the property’s best features and make it look more valuable.
Always try to offer suggestions on photos the agent will be chosen, especially because you know your shots and the process it needs to achieve them. This will be helpful, especially when they have questions, simply because you know more than they do about photography.
Remember that this is your opportunity to endorse to the agent some of your particular photos and also to justify the angles you decided to take, so explain your shots creatively and use this time wisely.
