Photography for the Real Estate Agent

Real Estate Photography Dinette

In an earlier blog post on Professional Real Estate Photography I looked at the importance professional photography help attract buyers and sell a home. Professional photos of a home help give the potential buyer a polished look at the interior and exterior of the home and provide more visually pleasing images.Today’s Grove City and Columbus real estate markets are hot. Homes are selling fast. I watch the MLS and see even homes with blurry images, crooked verticals, and underexposed getting buyers within a day. That’s why I want to look at how professional images help the real estate agent in the long game.

Increased Real Estate Commissions

One study cites that real estate agents that outsource their photography earn twice as much commission as those who do not. [1] Let’s look at some reasons that could be.Using professional real estate images positions you as more than just a real estate agent - it positions the agent as a marketer. How does this potentially lead to higher commissions? It means you’ve positioned the property for sale in the best way. The listing is likely polished, high quality images, descriptive text, etc. This helps lead buyers showing up to view the house with a better expectation of the house. Higher expectations lead to the potential buyers coming in more positive and seeing the value of the house before they set foot in the door. As opposed to dingy photographs lowering their expectations and already having them looking for things to knock the price down.Higher quality photos can also lead to more interest in the house from the moment it goes on the market. So even in a fast moving market, getting multiple buyers on the first day of the listing leads to a higher chance of a bidding war. The higher the sale price, the more commission you, the real estate agent, gets.

Usage of Time

In the course of doing business one has to ask themselves what is the best use of their time. Outsourcing certain activities can allow a business person to use their time more effectively to increase their number of listings or be available for more showings. Taking photos that will stand out above the majority of real estate listings takes about two and a half to three hours per house. About an hour and a half to two to capture the images and another hour and half to edit and prep them for optimal viewing on the MLS. Sure you can zip through a house in 30 minutes with an iPhone, but I’m talking photos that stand-out above the others out there. That time spent could be spent on other marketing efforts, opening your schedule to be available for other showings, to calling potential clients in a timely manner to help ensure you gain a new client. If over a month of outsourcing your photography needs to a professional nets you 1 or 2 new listings a month you’ve come out with a higher amount of revenue for the month.

Gaining More Real Estate Listings

A real estate agent needs listings. More listings lead to more sales. More sales lead to more commissions. Potential buyers are likely to browse the Internet and take a look at the current listings an agent has. Buyers selecting a real estate agent want someone that can market their home well. Their home means a lot to them and often has an emotional attachment. They want to see it presented in the best way possible. They want to know their real estate agent is going to really work for them and do all they can to get the best offer for their home. A potential buyer is going to have more confidence in a real estate agent’s ability to market their home if they see current listings by the agent that do it well. This means professional quality images for prior listings and well written descriptions for the home. Those things help distinguish your from the other agents and listings out there. They set you apart from other real estate agents. You move from just someone that takes some quick images and puts them online to someone who thinks about everything that goes into listing a home to bring value to their clients.

Wrapping it Up

Even in a fast moving real estate market, it makes sense for a real estate agent to think about the long term. First, you get to put your time to optimal use - focusing on the things you do well instead of taking pictures.Second, putting the time, effort, and professionalism into listings now will ultimately help you gain more clients. They will see the effort you put into marketing their home and choose your as their agent. More clients means a higher opportunity for sales. More sales lead to more commissions for you.

Behind the Scenes: Photographing a 5K

Early runners at the Grove City Mother's Day 5K

Early runners at the Grove City Mother's Day 5K

Curious what it takes to photograph a running race? Today I’m going to take a behind the scenes look at what some of the planning looks like, the race itself, and the hours after the race. I’ll use the most recent Mother’s Day 5K Inclusion Revolution race held in Grove City, Ohio as the source for this behind-the-scenes look. Jeffrey Tadlock Photography was a proud sponsor for this event. I’m always happy to see 5K races take place in the local community. In addition this local race partnered with Team Heart and Sole to help those with disabilities participate and raised money for KidSMILES and awareness for Mt. Carmel Foundation Women's Health Fund.


There are several areas of prep prior to a race. That ranges from communication prep, how many photographers to adequately cover the event, and the gear itself. I’ll take a look at each of those areas.


There were two major forms of communication I prepped prior to the race. First, the fliers to include in the race bags. The purpose of those was to help let participants know there were going to be race photos and where they should watch to see when they posted.The fliers were designed about two weeks before the event and shared the web page where the photos would be announced and posted. Social media information for Jeffrey Tadlock Photography was also included on the flier.The web page had to be completed by the time the race bags were distributed. Prior to the race the page noted the photos would be announced and posted there. The web page also allowed people to either follow the Jeffrey Tadlock Photography Facebook page or register for an email list where announcements of photo availability would be made.


It can take a lot of photographers to fully cover an event without missing too many shots. There are a surprising amount of photo opportunities at a race. There are pre-race photos as people arrive and get ready for the race. The Mother’s Day 5K also had two preliminary races - the Mother’s Day 100 and the Primrose Children’s run - prior to the main event starting. And don’t forget Stinger was there to hang-out as well!There is also the start of the race to capture as the runners take off, as well as photos from the actual race course as the participants make their way along the course. As the runners return there are finish line photos to capture. As the participants move past the finish line they claim their medal and can visit the recovery stations. In addition the Mother’s Day 5K includes a banner for post-race photos of proud finishers!For this event we covered the race with a total of three photographers. Prior to the race we reviewed who was covering what areas and portions of the race. When the race is a shorter 5K, clear understanding of who was doing what (and when) is important or important shots could be missed.

Gear - wheelchairs all lined up before the race

Gear - wheelchairs all lined up before the race


Whenever you see a photographer at a race, they typically have a bag of gear slung over their back. Ever wondered what we’re carrying in those bags? Let’s break it down.In general we’ll have a lens more appropriate for before the race or after the race. For the course photos we’ll use a longer lens (i.e. a zoom lens) to get closer shots of the participants. And in the medals area and the backdrop it is back to the wider lens to capture those images.In addition - as professionals, we will generally have backup camera bodies and lenses in the event of hardware failure. If I am out on the course and have a camera body fail, the runners and walkers aren’t going to wait - so a spare camera body allows a quick swap of hardware and the images are still captured. Digging into specifics a little more - here’s what I had with me on race day to capture images and protect against equipment failure.

  • Camera body (primary)

  • Camera body (spare)

  • 35mm lens (preferred for pre and post race)

  • 70-200mm lens (for course photos)

  • 18-55mm lens (spare)

  • 70-300mm (spare)

  • 2 memory cards in main camera (protects against one failing)

  • 1 memory card in spare camera

  • 2 spare memory cards in backpack

  • 1 extra battery for each of the camera bodies

  • Rain covers and large plastic bags

As you can see by that gear list, I strive to protect against a myriad of potential issues by having the tools I need on hand to ensure the photos that need captured are captured.And finally - we also partnered with Epic Image Media for some drone shots at the start of the race! So the team also had drones packed up and ready to fly as part of the gear (as well as a FAA Part 107 drone certified pilot).

The Race

As pre-race photos wrapped up the timeline became more critical. We had to be in position for the race start (one photographer), get a drone ready to be in the air for the 5K start (another photographer), and get out to the course to be setup for the course photos before the 5K started (another photographer).We kept one photographer near the Start/Finish line to capture the events unfolding there - including the speakers on the stage prior to the start. I stayed near the start of the Mother’s Day 100 run - with a golf cart available to me to help me make a quick exit to the course. Our drone pilot/photographer began setting up to be in the air for the 5K start as the Mother’s Day 100 run concluded.When the 5K started we had one photographer at the Start, one with the drone in air for those early shots, and one photographer positioned out on the course. Everything went according to plan and we were ready when the race started.Once the runner and walkers were completely underway, the start/finish photographer had ample time to get ready for the first finishers. The drone was brought back to a safe landing so that photographer could fall back to the medals area. The backdrop turned out to be a very popular spot and he was kept quite busy as the finishers made their way across the finish and collected their medal, water, and bananas.I was positioned on the course to capture both the out and back runners and walkers on the course. That made for some interesting moments as I flipped between sides as the faster runners were on their way back while walkers were still on their way out! I remained on the course from the first runner to the last walker. Once the last walker went by, I took advantage of the golf cart to get back to the Start/Finish line to help capture some candid shots in the medal area.

After the Race

With the race completed, the line for the portrait area gone it was time gather up the images from the three photographers cameras and get started on the edits for all three. That involved gathering memory cards where appropriate and ready for Google Drive links to gather the others.By late afternoon on Sunday I had all of the photos in-hand and had already started the early edits on the course photos. Edits consisted of some cropping of an image, alignment, and fixing exposures. When there are as many photos as we had from three cameras - this can take some time!My upload strategy was to divide the race into five main areas:

  • Pre-5K Race Photos

  • 5K Start

  • Course Photos

  • 5K Finish

  • Post-Race

I know as a runner sorting through a large number of images can be daunting when I am looking for ones of me and my family! I thought the division of photos would make it easier to find images as people were looking for them. It also allowed me to upload in chunks as images were edited.As the images were uploaded and made available I updated the landing page that was shared on the race bag flier and announced on the Jeffrey Tadlock Photography Facebook page. Once all of the images were available their release was also announced via the Mother’s Day 5K email list, website, and Facebook page.

Professional Real Estate Photography

Real Estate Photo Living Area - Grove City

Real Estate Photo Living Area - Grove City

Photos are one of the first things home shoppers see when browsing a realty website from Zillow to Trulia to a broker’s website. Professional photos of a house can be the difference between a potential buyer clicking on past or staying on the listing to view all the photos and read the details about the house.Professional real estate photography can help a listing rise above other listings on the market with non-professional photos. Professional photographers will ensure verticals are vertical, that colors are accurate and that lighting is even. Professional real estate photographers will have access to high quality, wide angle lenses that will further improve the quality of interior imagery.

The Numbers

Let’s take a look at some of the research that has been done on buyer’s habits in regards to real estate listing photography.In today’s Internet age, more people than ever (some say 80+%) use various real estate sites to help decide which houses they want to visit. Of these Internet real estate buyers, photographs are listed as the most useful tool in their search [1]. With photography of the home being such a useful tool an agent can help generate more queries by utilizing professional photography.The Wall Street Journal says studies show the first photo of the home, typically the exterior photo in listings, is viewed for 20 seconds by 95% of the the viewers [2]. Using a professional photo of the exterior of the home is a prime opportunity to get a potential buyer to continue to view more photos and read more about the home. In fact, the same article goes on to say that on a typical online real estate listing, the visitor spends 60% of their time on the photos, 20% on the property details, and 20% on the real-estate agent’s remarks about the listing. With that much time spent viewing the photos, they should stand-out.One last statistic for the moment on the importance of professional photos for real estate listings. A Redfin study showed that listings utilizing professional real estate photography garnered 61% more views than otherwise [3].

The Intangibles

There are many other pieces of research noting how important quality photography is for real estate listings, but I will save those for another day. Let’s take a look at a couple of the less tangible, can’t quite put a number on it things that professional real estate photography brings to the table. Take a photograph, any photograph (doesn’t even need to be real estate related). Think about it for a moment in your head. Ok - did you find your mood shift towards the positive or the negative? To the positive end of things, right? Why? Because well done photography brings positive feeling, it leads to a positive perception. High quality, professional real estate images generate a positive first impression. This positive first impression helps lead clients into approaching the property with a positive perception. In turn, this positive energy leading up to the first showing help lead to a more positive first showing.Why does professional real estate photography help with this? It ties into some of the items noted earlier. Professional real estate photographs are well composed, the verticals are vertical, and the lighting is even. These are things that when they aren’t right, give the viewer pause. Something seems off subconsciously, not quite right. This feeling can lead the potential buyer to click on through to the next listing or cause hesitation or uncertainty about if this house is right for them. Professional imagery helps reduce those negative, subconscious thoughts.

Bringing it Together

With the photography for real estate listing being such a useful tool for potential clients, it should be evident by now that professional images help put your listing ahead of others. It helps make the process easier with buyers approaching a house with a positive perception as opposed to one with doubt and negative perceptions. With today’s area real estate market being so hot - low inventory, multiple bidders on listings, etc - I am sure real estate agents are wondering why bother with professional photos today. I’m saving that for a future post. In that post I will look at how professional images are for more than just moving a listing quickly, but professional images have benefit for the real estate agents who use them.

Behind the Scenes - Broken Rock Falls

Jeffrey Tadlock Photography - Broken Rock Falls

Today I am going to do a Behind the Shot look at one of my images. The image for today was first shown in the Best of Nine post earlier this year. It is an image of Broken Rock Falls in Hocking Hills State Park.I’ll write a little bit about the trip there, some of the gear used, and some of the camera settings. All accompanied with some behind the shot photos for added flavor!

Broken Rock Falls

Broken Rock Falls is located in Hocking Hills State Park near Logan, Ohio. The falls is in the Old Man’s Cave region of the park. Despite my having hiked in the area many, many times I had never visited Broken Rock Falls because I didn’t even know it was there!Prior to one of our trips to the area this fall, I did some research on Hocking Hills waterfalls and saw a reference to this one. Particularly attractive was that it seemed relatively unknown despite being in one of the busier parts of the park!

The Hike

My daughter and I had a late start for this hike, which never bodes well for people free images, but it was a nice day and we headed to the park anyways. After spending a little bit of time at Cedar Falls before it got too crowded, we headed over to the Old Man’s Cave area of the park. Broken Rock Falls is just past Lower Falls on a side trail a lot of people likely don’t even see. As you leave Lower Falls, instead of heading left across the arching bridge, head to the right and up the steps that climb the side of the gorge. Where the trail winds around to the right, there is a spur trail that heads off to the left. Follow that trail to the left and follow it until you reach the falls. It really isn’t that long of a hike, it just is on an often overlooked trail.With Lower Falls being crowded on the day we were there, our hope was that Broken Rock Falls would prove as little visited as I had read. Sure enough, we reached the falls and there were only two other people there!There was some trail construction going on when we were there, it looked like there might have been a concrete bridge or walkway that helped you get closer to a prime viewing point of the falls. When we were there, the trail ended at about a 10’ drop-off to the bottom of the falls.Of course, for the picture I wanted - I wanted to be down towards the bottom of the falls. My daughter was quite skeptical that I would find a “safe” way down - she apparently forgot that I’ve spent many years hiking in the backcountry what what could best be described as “traces” at best!It didn’t take long to find a relatively easy route that wound its way to where I wanted to be. My daughter reluctantly followed. We found the spot I wanted and got all setup.

Behind the Shot

Camera setup at Broken Rock Falls

Camera setup at Broken Rock Falls

For this image I wanted to be at the base of the falls at an angle that allowed me to capture the water flowing between the broken rock. I found a spot to setup up the tripod and set about making some pictures.I like the milky smooth water from waterfalls, so I tend towards longer exposures to capture that feel. With that said I will typically take a number of exposures to get the one I am happy with. I also used my wide angle Tokina 12-24mm lens which I find as my go-to lens for a lot of the landscape images I do (that or my 35mm lens).Here’s my equipment list for this image:

  • Nikon d7200

  • Tokina 12-24mm

  • Rokinon/SP Tripod Stand (see note below)

  • Lowepro Slingshot Edge 250

The tripod is something I plan on upgrading one day, but that tripod despite being on the heavy side, not the most stable of all things - was the tripod my Dad used to use back in the 1980’s! It is still my day-to-day tripod for now.I hope you enjoyed this behind the shot look at this image. I plan on doing a few more of these in future posts for those curious!

Unstock Your Website Photos

You have your small business website all setup - you have your text, you have your pictures on the site, you’ve even worked on your search engine optimization to make sure people find your site. But it still isn’t converting visitors into customers. Could it be the images on your website? Let’s take a closer look.Today we know that images play a very important role in what attracts people’s attention. Images engage people and keep them on your website longer or maybe read more of your most recent social media post. But not all images are created equal.


Stock Photos

Stock photos are frequently used on business websites. What are stock photos? Stock photos are images available from websites for download that are licensed to be used commercially in websites, printed materials, social media, etc. License use can generally be obtained at a  low cost and websites selling stock photos typically provide a search engine to help you find an image that almost works for your business.Despite a low barrier to entry, stock photos do present issues to a business aiming to build relationships and convert customers. First, it can be very time consuming to find an image that fits your business brand. One can search for hours through stock photo sites and never find something that fits your business perfectly. You then settle on something that isn’t the perfect fit, which in turn can lead to fewer conversions from your website. Second, anyone can license a stock photo - including your competitors. Once you’ve found an image that sort of works for your business, have you checked to be sure no one else is using that image? If two businesses are using the same photo it puts your business at a disadvantage to showing the uniqueness of your brand.And finally, there have been studies done that show consumers today tune out stock images. Their gaze doesn’t linger on them [1]. This leads to people missing key pieces of your business brand. The images you think are helping build relationships with potential customers are being ignored. This impacts one of the main purposes of your website!

Real Photos


But what if you invest in photography that is your business brand? After a business branding engagement your business will own images that directly reflect you and your brand. Here’s how photography customized for your business helps you gain more customers [2].  Professional interior and exterior pictures of your place of business helps people be more comfortable the first time they visit. They will recognize the building more readily - either as they drive by and think “hey, I’ve seen that building on Facebook before” or know they have the right place when they arrive. Stepping into the office or showroom the first time will be familiar, because they will have seen it before in blog posts or shared social media posts. Capturing professional images of your staff in their environment will help forge the relationships you need with your customers. They will more readily recognize staff and the business will have a more human, personal feel by showing genuine people at work.If you business uses service or delivery vehicles, having images of your own vehicles further increases brand recognition. Instead of seeing a stock delivery truck in your digital images, they see the actual vehicle. When potential customers see the trucks about town, a subtle mental trigger will tie seeing the truck to your website images to the truck - putting your business at top of mind.These are just some of the ways utilizing real photos of you and your business help with your conversions. It gives you a distinct advantage against your competition if you can build these more authentic touch points with your potential (and current) customers. Photography specific to your business brand do more to promote recognition than stock photography.

Autism Living Fundraiser

Exterior image of Shadowbox Live

Exterior image of Shadowbox Live

In November of last year, just before the holiday rush really began I had the privilege of being the photographer for an Autism Living event at Shadowbox Live in Columbus, Ohio. The event was called ‘Life's a Spectrum: What does home mean to you?’ and featured several speakers, live performances by the Shadowbox Live crew, and food. Autism Living is a non-profit organization whose mission is to help young adults challenged by autism to join intergenerational neighborhoods focused on mutual support. They are working to bring communities that foster these types of relationships to Columbus. Neighborhoods with people helping people and building valuable support systems to help give people independence.On display at the event were 10+ cardboard houses built to help show what home meant to to them. The houses are decorated in a variety of colors and and different takes on what home meant. Guests were encouraged to view the cardboard house display.A cocktail hour preceded the main feature of the event with several speakers, including Tom Berkshire of the Generations of Hope organization and Kevin Bacon of the Ohio Senate.From there the event moved to the main stage for food while the Shadowbox Live performers did several musical numbers with guest speakers talking about the importance of integrated living for the autism community. These speakers included Autism Living board members, Alan Homewood and Leslie Kirsch, followed by guest speakers Rick Schostek, Kevin Galat, and Robert Blackburn.If you have interest in how you can help the Autism Living group or just want to keep up with what they are up to - you can follow their Facebook page or visit their website.Here are a few of the images from the event. I hope you enjoy! [foogallery id="196"]

Best of Nine 2017

Instagram users are probably already familiar with the Best of Nine post folks tend to make at the end of the year. The Best of Nine are the top 9 photos you posted to Instagram with the most Likes. It makes for a fun look back on the previous year and lets you see photos from your feed that resonated well with your audience.

Jeffrey Tadlock Photography Best of Nine of 2017 from Instagram

Jeffrey Tadlock Photography Best of Nine of 2017 from Instagram

The above image is the Best of Nine for my feed for 2017. It looks like my images from Hocking Hills State Park did pretty well, plus some of my abandoned building images. I wanted to take a brief look at each image and give a better idea of where it was taken. So starting from the top left of the grid and then going from left to right and working own the grid, here’s the brief synopsis of each image.

Reymann Brewing Company

This image was taken in Wheeling, West Virginia this past summer. I knew we were going to be in the area and did a little research to see what interesting things there might be to see. This area was the former location of the Reymann Brewing Company established in this area around 1865.

Marblehead Lighthouse

This image is of the Marblehead Lighthouse on the shores of Lake Erie. This lighthouse is the oldest in continuous operation on the US side of the Great Lakes. This is a very popular tourist destination and you have to get there very early to beat the crowds to capture these images.


This image was captured while I was out walking the dog. I liked the leading lines in the image, apparently other folks did as well! The fence is located in Grove City, Ohio and the image was taken with an iPhone.

Broken Rock Falls

An image of Broken Rock Falls starts off the middle row on the left side. I had stumbled across this one while reading about waterfalls in the Hocking Hills State Park. Though located in the Old Man’s Cave area it doesn’t get nearly the attention as Upper and Lower Falls. Which worked out great as on this day we were there a little later than normal and the park was pretty crowded.

Rock House

This row should just be called the Hocking Hills row! This image is of the inside of Rock House at Hocking Hills State Park. This is a popular place to visit and I almost didn’t get this picture. But my daughter convinced me to go ahead and setup. I did and a brief window of opportunity opened up to capture this image without any people in it.

Cedar Falls

Wrapping up the Hocking Hills row, we get Cedar Falls. Another fun waterfall to visit with a different look every time depending on water flow. I like this nice, clean image of the falls. Again, you have to get there early or catch just the right gap in visitors to get images with no people in them. Minutes after this one was taken about 20 people showed up and the nearby parking lot was filled.

Rural Grain Bins

This is a common scene across rural Ohio. I particularly liked the colors in this one and the green fields contrasting against the gray of the bins. Anyone that’s been in Ohio has driven by similar scenes dozens, if not hundreds, of times.

Hillside Waterfalls

I don’t think this set of smaller falls even has a name - at least not that I am aware of. It is simply an example of the myriad of natural scenery one can see at Hocking Hills State Park. This was captured in the Old Man’s Cave area.

Reymann Brewing Company - Part II

This is another image from the Reymann Brewing Company area, different angle. One of the prominent buildings in this area has been torn down which made me question whether I was even in the right area or not. I’ve also been made aware that I missed another cool spot very near this one - something I’m keeping in mind in the event I return to this area!And that’s the Best of Nine for 2017 from my Instagram feed. I look forward to the upcoming year and seeing what it has in store photography wise! Have you done your Best of Nine from Instagram yet?
