It’s not every day that we see how our photography tangibly creates value for our customers, so I was really excited today to hear that our photography had actually created value and had helped someone. Let me explain…
I’m talking specifically about a specialty area that we’ve expanded into this year — real estate photography.
Most real estate agents use a point-and-shoot camera to photograph properties for sale. This probably works well for the average home and the average person, but when the point-and-shoot images don’t do the home justice – don’t really show how amazing the place is in person – or the home needs to sell quickly, it may be time to consider calling a professional photographer to help.
I’ve enjoyed photographing a couple of homes for my good friend Todd Franz and in each case, he said the home had a lot more interest than it otherwise would have, and received offers immediately from buyers.
(A little plug for Todd — If you’re ever in need of an honest, hard-working agent, look him up! You can even get his autograph… He’s a former NFL player for the Green Bay Packers and the Redskins! — Actually, I just looked it up and learned that he also played for the Detroit Lion, Cleveland Browns, and New Orleans Saints!)
Few things are as rewarding as knowing that our services are bringing value, not just aesthetically, but tangibly as well. I look forward to doing more real estate photography in the future — looks like we have one to shoot tomorrow, in fact.
Does this bring to mind other ideas of how photography might be able to bring value to other industries? Leave a comment below with your thoughts… We would love to know!
As a side note, I’m sorry but these homes are no longer available. (*smile*) If you’re thinking about moving, though, give Todd a call or check out his website. (I’d like to point out that Todd did not ask for, or know, that I was going to talk about him like this. He really is just a great guy and we’re happy to pass along his name for the great experience and service that he’s always provided us.)
