I have to admit, I'm really enjoying the attention that professional photography and video have been getting as the real estate industry continues to make the shift toward becoming more and more of an online marketplace. In 2010 alone I have been contacted by more agents about doing Atlanta Real Estate Photography than in my last 5 years in the business. Despite this trend, it appears that the overwhelming majority of agents, home stagers and landlords (in my area anyway...) are still not working with a professional photographer. I have my suspicions why, but I would like to hear what the always vocal AR community has to say. So, I have a simple questions to ask.
If you are not working with a professional photographer, what are your reasons?
Is it the price, is it the availability of talent, is it that you take good enough photos on your own...? Whatever your reasons, I want to know why. If you do use a photographer then of course your welcome to comment on how you feel about this topic as well.
Please, if you clicked to read this post, leave a comment and tell me why. Even if it's just a few words I value your feedback. Thanks!
