Real Estate Photo Services

Photo Taking
Local Area Only
 Sierra North Valley MLS
Paradise, Magalia, Chico, Oroville, CA and Surrounding Areas


 

I normally need a minimum 24-hour notice to schedule a photo shoot (48 hours preferred), but I might be able to do a rush order. If you need a rush order please fill out the order form by clicking on the link below and call me rather than waiting for me to call you.

You will receive eleven (This is the maximum allowed for upload to our MLS) images on compact disk in two formats; full resolution (300 dpi) images for quality printing and images that are sized and optimized for upload to the Sierra North Valley MLS (Paragon 3).

The images you receive for printing will be of much higher quality than the web images. Paragon 3 wants large images with a very small file size. This leads to an inescapable degradation of image quality caused by pixel distortion that shows up in the form of slightly wavy lines, banding in solid colors such as the sky, slight halos around objects, slight blurriness, etc.  Though it sounds terrible, these effects are not noticed by most people unless it's pointed out to them. I've sized the examples below to the requirements of Paragon 3 MLS software, so this will give you a pretty good idea of what the images will look like when uploaded to the MLS. The key is to start with high quality images that are properly exposed without blurring. All photos are taken with a state-of-the-art Nikon D70s Digital SLR camera then enhanced as needed in PhotoShop to bring out the detail and color.

I'll provide quality photographs, but I don't stage the home, make beds, light fireplaces, feed the pets, etc. Please be sure the home is in the condition you want it to be in for the photos.  If the home is occupied please inform your clients and advise them to straighten up and de-clutter if necessary before my arrival. If it is vacant you might want to check it out yourself to be sure it is ready for photographing. I can remove some items after the fact, but this is done at an additional cost. I do not remove permanent items such as trees, poles, and fences. Nor do I remove items that are attached to the house. Click here to see examples of object removal.

If you need images resized and optimized for your own website (Not the MLS) click here to see examples of optimization for the web.

Exterior MLS Photos
Scroll Down for Interior Photo Examples

This gallery shows examples of exterior photos I took for posting on our local Sierra North Valley MLS.  These are sized as they will appear on the MLS, 640 x 425 pixels with a file size slightly under 32k.  These images closely approximate how they will actually look on the MLS.

Front of Home

In this photo I cropped in slightly sacrificing part of the garage to put the emphasis on the brickwork and massive wooden entry doors, while still giving a good representation of the front of the home.
