Real Estate Photography Pricing
Real estate shoots are those intended specifically for the marketing of a single residence. Pricing includes photography, basic post processing, a standard usage license (see below) and finished images delivered electronically in multiple resolutions. Photos are guaranteed within 48 hours unless otherwise agreed upon and usually delivered before the close of the next business day. The pricing shown is typical for a large percentage of middle class homes. Estates, large properties and jobs that require special equipment are quoted individually. For pricing specific to your needs, please send me a message on my contact page and I will call you promptly.

*Pricing is calculated based on travel distance/time and the number of photos desired. Savings from requesting fewer photos may not be available due to pricing minimums. I am based in California City, CA and available to work worldwide.
The exact number of images provided is dependent on each property. I will usually provide at least 16 photos of a smaller home and often include more than 20 images for larger homes if I feel that they are needed to properly showcase the property. Customers are welcome to work with me during the initial walk thru to build the shot list. Extra charges may be assessed if there will be another person acting as the Art Director responsible for approval and or staging of each composition due to the extra time that this arrangement will require.
Discounts are available. Please inquire if you are planning to order photography on several properties that can be photographed on the same day. Commissions are offered for referring other clients which can include contractors on the same property that wish to have professional photos made of their work.
Twilight photos on the same day (Max of 2) – $80 additional (subject to scheduling conditions and other constraints)
Custom photo retouching – $50/hr, billed in 1/2 hour increments.
Basic staging consultation on site to prepare for photography- $40 and up.
Payment is due prior to photography.
Other terms and conditions apply. Contact Kenneth Brown for more details.
Commercial Property Photography
All commercial property photography is quoted on a per commission basis. Contact Kenneth Brown to discuss your project requirements. While commercial properties are not necessarily more expensive than residential, the requirements and scope of the work make it appropriate to negotiate each project individually.
IMPORTANT LICENSING INFORMATION
Real estate photography prices include NON-TRANSFERABLE, NON-RESELLABLE rights to reproduce the photographs for all marketing purposes specifically related to the sale of a single residential property for the full continuous duration of the client’s listing agreement to a maximum of one year from date of payment, including the MLS, real estate websites, the realtor’s social media and print advertising.
The agent is granted a non-transferable, non-resellable license for the image(s) for marketing their services in sold listing compilations and marketing portfolios for a period of 4 years beginning on the date of payment in full for charges relating to those photos. Photos used in marketing materials for the agent must include a photo credit immediately adjacent to the photo in the form of “Photo by Kenneth Brown” and a footnote on the publication in the form of “Photos © (year of copyright) Kenneth Brown” or in a manner to designate the photos in the media created by Kenneth Brown if more than one photographer’s work is shown.
Photos may not be resold or otherwise transferred to those including, but not limited to: builders, architects, sellers, buyers, interior designers, stagers or subsequent listing agents. New agents must purchase images directly from the photographer and are subject to limitations negotiated with the original listing agent. Copyright is exclusively retained by Kenneth Brown and images must be licensed by Kenneth Brown for any use.
If the photos are of a “Model” home where they will be used to advertise more than one address, specific licensing arrangements must be made and additional fees paid in advance.
Licensing is subject to receipt in full of all charges related to the shoot. Other licensing terms can be negotiated to suit the needs of your project.
