Professional Property Photographer for Marlow

I am Paul Darvell, a professional property photographer in Marlow. As a property photographer I offer a number of property photography services. Some of the property related photography services are listed below:

Property Photographer for Landlords in Marlow

Are you a landlord and need some photographs of your rental properties in Marlow?

Want a property photographer that ‘gets it’?

I am a landlord as well as an experienced and qualified property photographer. I understand what is important to landlords.

Properties with voids are costing you money. 2 bed flats near me are going for £1,300pcm when I last checked. That means that every day the flat is empty, it is costing the landlord £43. To put that into perspective, if you fill your property 3 days sooner, professional property photographs have paid for themselves!

Property Photographs By Paul Darvell

Great property photos will get you more clicks regardless of which property portal you advertise on. More clicks will mean more viewing requests and more competition for your property. This could even mean you will achieve higher rents.

Take a look at the two property photos below, if you were a tenant, which one are you more likely to click on?

Property Photographs for Estate Agents

The photograph on the left is not too bad, I have seen a lot worse being used to advertise properties. However, let’s face it, you are more likely to click on the one on the right.

Quality property photographs for your advertising can help you to reduce your voids. Book your photo shoot TODAY!

Alternatively, call Paul on 07956 807 442 to discuss your requirements.

Property Photographer for Estate Agents in Marlow

Great property photographs will help you to sell properties faster! They create more interest and competition for your properties.

I understand that it can feel like less hassle to quickly snap a few property photos when you value a property. However, you are probably just making life more difficult for yourselves.

You have two options:

  1. Get the kit and skills to take great property photos
  2. Hire a pro

Property Photographers Cost Too Much!

You might think it is cheaper to take the property photos yourself but what is the opportunity cost? How does the client feel when they see your advert with poor property photos? Do they think you are taking marketing their property seriously? Are you going to get as much interest from buyers? Will you sell the property as quick? Will your competitors approach your client and show them how much better they would market the property? I could go on all day but you get the idea.

With competition from the online estate agents that are cutting each others throats on fees, I think that the high street estate agent needs to show how much more professional they are to survive. Rubbish property photographs do not make you look good!

It's Quicker To Do Property Photography Yourself

You might think it is more hassle and slower to use a professional property photographer. If you are not working with the right property photographer, you are probably correct. However, I am different. I work with my clients to ensure that I get in to the property ASAP and turn the photo editing around fast so that you can be using them quite often the same day. 

It is up to you, you can accompany me to take the property photographs or I can collect and return the keys to your office. I am more than happy for you to come and help me carry my gear but your time is probably better spent marketing the property…. 

Good photos do not happen by accident and they need the estate agent, client and property photographer to work together. I can provide you with a free Client Guide to Great Property Photos for you to share with your clients to help ensure the best results.

Property Photographer for Letting Agents in Marlow

Regardless of the portal you use, you want more high quality prospective tenants so that you can fill the property quicker for higher rents, making you look like a rockstar to your landlords. Guess who they will get to manage their next property? It is my job to make you look good!

In what is a competitive market, quality property photographs will get the tenants clicking on your advert. You can then pick and choose which tenants you want. This has to be better than filling a property with tenants you are not sure of just to get the landlord off your back, guess who is going to be dealing with the fallout when it goes wrong – YOU!

Property Photographer - Cost

You might think it is cheaper to take the property photographs yourself but what is the opportunity cost? How does the landlord feel when they see your advert with poor property photos? Do they think you are taking marketing their property seriously? Are you going to get as much interest from tenants? Will you fill the property as quick? Will your competitors approach your landlord and show them how much better they would market the property? I could go on all day but you get the idea.

With competition for landlords growing as new agencies spring up everyday you need to differentiate yourself as the professionals. Rubbish property photographs do not make you look good!

Property Photographer for Home Owners in Marlow

It is true, great property photographs can sell properties faster by creating more interest and competition for the properties.

Are you unhappy with the property photographs your agent is using to market your property?

If so, I can work with you to create stunning property images that will help you sell your property quicker and even possibly for more money. Great property photographs are key to creating demand and competition for your property.

Property Photographer for Developers in Marlow

As a developer there are many reasons for high quality property photographs throughout the project life-cycle. Whether you need property photographs for your portfolio, that you use to tempt investors and banks or property photos of a show home for your brochure, I can cover it all for you.

Let’s be honest, not all property photographers are comfortable on a muddy building site. I am happy to see your project all the way through, working with you to capture  your project as it grows, all the way through to selling or renting the properties at the end. Yes, this service is just as important for Build to Rent developers as it is for Build to Sell developers.

Property Photographer for HMOs in Marlow

No matter where you are advertising your rooms, great property photographs get more clicks!

Like you, I am a HMO landlord, as well as an experienced and qualified property photographer. I understand that voids take a toll on your cashflow. Every day a room is empty, it is costing you money.

Hopefully, you know you need property photographs when you are advertising your property, although, I still see adverts for properties without property photographs and the landlord wonders why the property is not letting, at least, not for a market rate.

Property Photographs for Landlords

Every man and his dog is investing in property these days and especially HMOs. That means there is a lot more competition for the good tenants. You need to be marketing your property well. Badly lit property photographs of bare mattresses just don’t cut it anymore.

Property Photographer for Serviced Accommodation in Marlow

There is one number that as a serviced accommodation provider it is easy to get obsessed about and lay awake at night worrying about – Occupancy Rates.

Whether you own the property or are R2R’ing the property, your success is defined by your occupancy rates. Every day a property is empty, it is costing you money and wrecking your occupancy rates.

No matter where you are advertising your properties, great property photographs get more clicks!

With all the property training companies pushing serviced accommodation as the next gold rush for investors (it was HMOs a few years ago), it is no surprise that this sector is getting more competitive.

Are Your Property Photos Better Than The Competitions?

On most of the portals you are competing against hotels that have dressed their professional property photographs to perfection. 

It is time to take action and get your occupancy rates to where they should be. Take the first step and refresh your adverts with some great property photographs.

Book your photo shoot TODAY!

I can work around change over times, so that you do not even need to lose a single nights occupancy to get your property photos done.

Take Great Property Photographs

Hiring a professional property photographer is not always possible for a variety of reasons. Sometimes, you just have to do it yourself.

These courses are designed for you.

I offer private group courses in your office or branch.

Alternatively, my course is available to download and to study in your own time.

Property Photography Training - Breakdown

This course is broken into sections. First we deal with the camera and equipment you could use.

Unlike other trainers, I am realistic about the budget you may have for photography gear. Perhaps, you have no influence over the equipment you get to use.

In this section, I explain all the different options and the pros and cons of each.

In this section we don’t just cover cameras, we look at tripods, flashes, lighting equipment, lenses and remote controls. I also tell you how you can work with the equipment you have, even if it is not ideal.

The next section is Property Photography Skills. Many trainers like to make photography sound complicated – it is not. I will keep it simple and focused on what you need to know to take great property photos. We will start with the simplle stuff and just build it up until you have the knowledge to take great property photographs like a pro.

Ensuring that the photo shoot is a success is determined before you even arrive at the property. The next section covers Before the Shoot. These are the things that if you educate your property owners on, will ensure a successful shoot. All participants receive a free copy of my Property Photograph Client Guide

The next section follows on to Preparing The Property. This section is the final touches of getting the property right before taking the photos.

Taking The Money Shots

We are finally ready to start taking property photos! This section is called Taking the Money Shots. This builds on all of the technical skills you have learnt earlier in the course to make sure your property photos really ‘pop’.

You can get some great property photos without post processing. However, if post processing your property photos is an option, this section will show you how to do it and the difference that it makes. However, I know that even if you are post processing, you don’t have hours to spend on each photo. I will show you how to create great results in seconds.

The next section looks at Inventory Photos and how to take them.

The last second is to recap and to ensure that you have understood the key points from the course.
