We understand that our residential customers seldom have their homes professionally shot so we have produced a useful guide, which is in a form of a PDF, to explain how to get the best out of your shoot on the day. We recommend that you take a good look through this guide as it is jammed full of great information and will probably answer a lot of the questions that you may have.
The key to a great shoot is preparation; the more you prepare your home the better your photos will look. Obviously a freshly painted or newly decorated home will certainly produce the greatest effect but in most cases may not be required. Below we have detailed just a few points that are often missed by estate agents when shooting a property, for the best results please refer to our Guide PDF.
We recommend the cutting of your lawn, cleaning your windows and generally clearing away clutter in your garden as a must. If you own a jet washer, power cleaning a drive is also a good idea, as we would like to create as much kerb appeal as possible. Hiding away the bins would also improve the look of your house and garden.
Make sure your home is clean and tidy! Hide washing baskets and clothes; all clothing should be in a wardrobe or in drawers.
Check all of the light bulbs to see if they are working; if any are not working please replace them.
Reduce clutter on the kitchen worktops; ideally all we would like to see is a kettle, toaster and a microwave.
In the bathroom remove excessive amounts of bath and shower products, including shampoos.
