Seems like forever ago that I decided I wanted to start shooting real estate for a part time income. Ever since, I have been doing my homework – reading the relevant sites, starting to engage in Flickr group conversations, ordered and read an ebook. Beyond all that, I have been doing a lot of practicing. I have gone back to images from a few months ago and reworked them in Photoshop, taking advantage of lessons learned in the ebook and the Flickr groups (I can’t say enough good things about the people in the PFRE Flickr group – they have been very helpful and nice to boot). I took the best of the crop and created my Real Estate / Resort Photo Gallery.
This gallery represents the first step in me deciding that it is time to actively market my services for real estate photography in the Denver metro area (probably focusing on Denver, Lakewood, Littleton, Wheat Ridge, Golden) and the Colorado Front Range (to include Bailey, Conifer/ Aspen Park, Evergreen, Morrison, Kittredge, Genesee, the 285 and I-70 corridors). I never mind a trip to the mountains, so I plan to also be available in the Summit County area, covering Keystone, Dillon, Silverthorne (and Wildernest), Frisco, Breckenridge and Copper Mountain.
I have not finalized pricing yet, but plan to do that soon based on similar services in the area. Yes, times are tough right now in real estate, but I think quality photos can really help generate interest in a property. When the economy is down, effective marketing is that much more essential.
