What real estate photography is
Well I wanted to start at the beginning, with the assumption being that you know nothing about it whatsoever. I hate courses where you start off not knowing the fundamentals.
No I start off at the very beginning.
What the business of real estate photography is all about
Having explained what real estate photography is I then explain the business side of real estate photography. This is from my own personal experiences, having worked for many clients over the years.

You do not need all the gear under the sun. You need what you need and no more. I tell you the gear that I use, and even show it all to you so you can see how things work and how the bits fit together
I wish I had known this back in the day, this would have saved me so much time and money and, and would have helped me getting going much much quicker.
The camera settings you need, and why
This is a biggy. In this lesson I explain every one of the main camera settings that I use. You can apply this knowledge to pretty much any camera system. When I explain the camera settings I also explain how and why.
This lesson is how to physically take real estate photos start to end. After this lesson you will know what you need to do, and more importantly how and why.
