Professional photo secrets to impress your sellers and attract more potential buyers.

Money-Back, No Hassle Guarantee
  • You’ll learn easy-to-use real estate photography techniques from a master real estate photographer. Our instructor will teach you how to present the importance of photos at the very start of your listing presentation, and to separate yourself from the competition by showing your ability to take and sequence a superior photographic presentation. Sellers can get lost in the barrage of metrics and data necessary to formulate a sales plan, but photographs are easily understood by all parties.
    The Internet is a visual world, and studies have proven that quality photographs lead to more buyer visits. Some studies claim that higher quality photographs result in a higher average sale price!

  • Subject Matter Expert: 
    Rob Horgan

    Rob Horgan graduated from the University of Arizona in Tucson 1983 with a BA in Radio, Television and Film. He had learned how to develop and print film in darkrooms, but then mastered digital photography and software after the advent of digital cameras in the mid-1990s. After Rob became a real estate agent in 2005, other agents at his company complimented him on his outstanding listing photos. When he said he took them, requests for his photography services poured in. Rob’s experience as an agent has helped him know what buyers are looking for, and demand for his photography from listing agents has grown. He now has time for an occasional listing, but refers most of his buyers and sellers to other agents.
