Commercial real estate properties make up the vast majority of their assignments. These jobs generally require 15-30 daytime exterior photos of retail spaces, office buildings, hotels, industrial centers, and apartment/condo communities. Pay typically ranges from $175-$625 per commercial assignment and $120-$250 per residential assignment, although residential shoots are very rare at this time.
For the very small percentage of shoots where interiors are requested, you should be using at least one light off-camera for interiors or know how to effectively use layer-masking and/or photo fusion techniques without the downsides of noticeable HDR.
They DO NOT accept tone-mapped HDR images with blotchy shadows, unnatural saturation, and halos.
They DO want clean, sharp photos with smart composition and good color. Photos should be taken at the right time of day, with corrected perspective, straight verticals, and no keystone effect.
- Digital SLR
- Wide angle lens
- Off camera flash and stand
- Computer w/ Photoshop or equivalent
To be considered for this position, they require that you have an online photography portfolio demonstrating your ability to shoot and retouch architecture and real estate. Applicants lacking this mandatory item will not be considered.
