Brussels Real Estate Photographer
Professional real estate photographer in Brussels, I provide my services to agencies, architects, as well as to any individual wishing to obtain quality photos to showcase a property.
My expertise as a real estate photographer helps me to enhance your house.
A flat in Uccle, a mansion in Waterloo each shooting and each client is unique.
Whatever the size of the house, photography tells a story, that of your property and your choices of decoration.
Both the inside and exterior are photographed, with images of architectural details to bring out the charm of your home.
Based in Ixelles, I operate in the 19 municipalities and in the Walloon & Flemish Brabant.
On request, I also travel to the other regions of Belgium and abroad.
Are you estate agents , an architect or a private individual?
Do you want to sell or rent a property?
Frequent questions to a real estate photographer...
Smartphones, even recent ones, are not able to cover the narrow angle of flats.
Professional camera and lenses are therefore necessary, but not sufficient.
Knowing how to frame and edit your photos is essential to obtain the best possible result.
Only a professional and specialised real estate photographer will have the necessary equipment and, above all, the expertise to take striking photos of your flat.
The experience of atypical properties, shadowy rooms, backlighting…
This is the reason why clients hire me before putting a property up for rent.
When you want to put your house up for sale, or put a flat up for rent on AirBnB, illustrating the advert with beautiful photos is key. You will be competing against thousands of ads, so you need to be visible and make your ad attractive.
The quality of the illustrations will allow your property to stand out from the crowd.
Nowadays, the sale of a realty is mostly done via ads published on the internet.
A few tenths of a second are enough to decide whether to click on an ad or not.
The human brain will naturally be more attracted to a beautiful, clear and well-framed photograph.
Dark or blurred real estate images have little chance of being heard by potential buyers.
In addition to being a master of estate photography, a professional will also offer other services that are frequently requested by real estate agencies.
For example, a service such as video is very important to bring a virtual tour of the property to life. Agencies know that a nice fullsize video will increase appointments with potential buyers.
Drone photography is also becoming an increasingly popular service.
The duration of the shooting is closely linked to the size of your property.
The number of floors, rooms and the presence (or not) of a garden can considerably affect the workload.
It is essential to listen to the client’s expectations. Depending on the specific wishes, the workload can vary considerably.
The first step is a walk around the property to discover it and assess the work.
At this stage, I already look for my framings and a shooting angle for the session.
Once the scouting is done, I set up my equipment.
The camera is attached to the tripod, I then methodically start shooting each room of the house.
Different angles are needed in each room in order to obtain a result that covers the entire property.
Home staging is essential before proceeding with a real estate photo shoot.
If it were a portrait photo shoot, home staging would be the “real estate make-up session”.
It consists of conscientiously tidying up the interior, and even making substantial changes to the decoration in order to enhance the property. This means making the photos more attractive by cleaning up the architecture.
Once the rooms are brighter and tidier, the photographer can shoot the best pictures.
Real estate photography is not limited to identifying the best framing and correctly exposing the photographs.
Post-processing is essential to obtain a perfect result. Each selected image is therefore edited in terms of brightness, contrast, white balance and colorimetry.
When the photos are delivered to the client, the professional real estate photographer provides only fullsize view retouched images. The photographer’s know-how and his mastery of tools such as Photoshop will make the difference between amateur photographers and professional real estate photography.
I use the same type of camera and wide-angle lens as all specialised photographers, but I bring my own perspective, forged by 25 years of practice.
Photos are not objective and the person who creates them brings a lot of his or her own personality.
From the framing, to the post-production, to the use or not of a flash or hdr techniques, the final result will intimately depend on our personal style.
Personally, I like natural results.
Whether I’m shooting a portrait or a kitchen, I insist that the final image is both flattering and lifelike.
Delivering unnatural images can only lead to disappointment !
Of course you can !
It is also the variety of assignments that makes this job so interesting.
Working in a living room or in a garden, whether for a corporate or an individual, being a passionate means being open to all types of clients and assignments !
