Shoot My House


Preparing Your Home for a Photo Shoot

We’re in the business of beautiful spaces.Whether its gardens, homes, restaurants or offices – the photographs are one of the most important tools that we have to sell your property to Directors, producers, art directors etc who see beautiful things all day everyday.

that is why it is so important, and why we recommend that you have professional photos taken Of your home. Shoot my House has a stable of photographers that we can call on to take these photos once you have signed with us so talk to us about it and we can talk you through the cost and you’ll see how fast you see a return on that investment.

There is a lot that you can do to ensure that the shots of your home are everything that they could be .

1.Sounds obvious but Clean, clean, clean! Now that you will have a professional photographer it does not mean that you do not have to clean your home. Dirt shows up in pictures! Especially now that you will have high quality photos.Make sure to get those nooks and crannies, dust the mantle, scrub at the discolored spots and if you need to, clean your carpets! Despite what some people may think a professional photographer cannot photoshop untidiness and disgarded clothing, laundry etc out of the photo.

2.Declutter. When you think you have decluttered…declutter some more. That cute ceramic collection may mean the world to you, but it will not help in photos of your home. You will want your home to convey a model-home feel. Photos translate well with the least amount of things possible in the shot.

3. Make sure the house looks great from the outside. Freshen up your pot plants, rake up leaves, clean windows, windowsills, make sure the lawn is neatly cut and clear of “landmines”.

Lastly, always remember the little things! Is the toilet seat up? Put it down. Is the toilet paper down to one last sheet? Replace it. Pay attention to blinds, curtains, bedspreads, shower curtains and baseboards. All of these things can add up to create a vision of your home that you do not want. Put your best foot (and home) forward and watch how fast we make it famous!
