This is my latest article on the Improve Photography website, 19 things for a client to do before you photograph their house.

Inspired from my years working as an architectural photographer, here are the headline items. Check out the full article using the link above.

  • Decide how many images you want
  • Agree which specific rooms/ views are/ are not to be captured
  • Plan the best time of day for the shoot
  • Make sure all the lights are working
  • Remove anything you don’t want in a shot
  • Move stuff away from doors
  • Open all the curtains fully
  • Fresh bedding and towels
  • Remove unwanted clutter from bathrooms and kitchens
  • Light the fire
  • Fresh flowers are great
  • Move the remotes and cables
  • Clear table tops and shelves
  • Hide the cars
  • Cut the grass
  • Get rid of the weeds and leaves
  • Hide the bins
  • Get rid of the hosepipe and garden tools
  • Relax – you are in good hands with me. I have done this before!
