We all come to photography for reasons as individual as our images. Whether your passion’s been fine art, portraiture, even sports, life with a camera is a lifelong quest to capture the perfect image, each in our way.
Along the way, you’ve acquired a set of skills – camera knowledge, an eye for composition, color and lighting that is unique, and very much in demand. I’m Darren Miles of Darren Miles Photography, and I photograph over 1,000 homes per year as Real estate photographers are constantly in demand in a digital marketplace wholly reliant on quality, professional images of properties.
Maybe you’re an enthusiast looking to merge your work life with your hobby. Maybe you’ve already done some commercial work, or wedding photography – and competing really hard for each job. Maybe you think real estate sounds boring. Maybe shooting houses and commercial properties isn’t your thing.
"But for every hundred wedding photographers, there’s only one or two real estate photographers agents feel they can rely on."
Artistically, you’re not taking pictures of a house, you’re sparking the dream of a new home to a young family, you’re assuring the couple downsizing for retirement that there’s a place with comfort and security. On the commercial side, every office, industrial site, and storefront is the start of an entrepreneurial vision, a legacy, the beginning of a story.
Real estate sales is all about images. No one knows that better than the agents willing to pay well for skilled photographers, and honest images that show more than houses and buildings, but homes and dreams.
Together, we’ll explore where your photographic aesthetic and style finds common ground with agents looking to capture the attention and imagination of buyers. There are “tricks of the trade,” that spur real estate agents to call you again and again to illuminate their listings.
And Now I’m pleased to announce that Camp Miles - Real Estate Photography for the Real World is available on line for digital download for less than the cost of what I charge to photograph just one property.
I’m Darren Miles, and I want to take you and your camera to the lucrative world of real estate photography.
