Real Estate Photography Pricing


Real estate photos are those intended specifically for the marketing of a single residence. Pricing includes a 1-3 hour photography session on site,  basic post processing, a standard usage license (see below) and finished images delivered electronically in multiple resolutions. Photos are guaranteed within 48 hours (Sundays/Holidays excluded) unless otherwise agreed upon and usually delivered before the close of the next business day. The fee for a particular address is based on the number of images and the location. For pricing specific to your needs, please send me a message on my contact page or give me a call (no text) and I will call you promptly.

Licensed images start at $200 for a nominal 20 finished images (16-24 depending on the home)

  • Additional photos ordered at the time of service are priced at $6.00 each.
  • Aerial (drone) photo pricing: 3-5 images, $50 additional**
  • Drone only work is quoted per job. 
  • Twilight photos on the same day (approximately 2 images) – $80 (subject to scheduling conditions and other constraints)
  • Twilight photos ordered separately – $125 and up.
  • Custom photo retouching – $50/hr, billed in 1/2 hour increments.
  • Virtual twilight images and staging are quoted per job
  • Rush service starts at $50 for expedited processing
  • Extra special pricing is available for Cal City properties. 

Discounts are available. Please inquire if you are planning to order photography on several properties that can be photographed on the same day. A discount is available for “vacant with a code” properties. If I am already booked for a job in an area and your listing can be photographed on the same day, I’ll offer a discount. 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. Prepaid discount packages are available for established customers and are a good way to save money if you have a large volume of properties or need service on a regular basis.

**Your first property is free with a photo package. Some locations may be in area where drones may not be used. Contact me to make sure your property is not in a no-fly zone or where time may be needed to get a FAA Airspace Authorization. 

Prices are for one physical address. Images of model homes to advertise more than one address are negotiated on an individual basis.

Buyout pricing (unlimited rights) pricing starts at $60 per finished image plus expenses. 

Buyout pricing includes more time on site, up to two requested editing rounds and all finished images in maximum resolution available. 

Vacation rentals, BnB’s, apartments, motels/hotels and commercial properties are quoted per job.

Simple walk through HD videos are now available made with a Canon professional DSLR camera on a 3-Axis gimbal including a licensed music track. Production options will be available soon.

Pricing for <2 minute video starts at $200 as an add-on to a photo package. Delivery is 3-4 days. 

Drone video is included for properties that do not require a special FAA Airspace Authorization.
