These days, with so much on the internet, local businesses benefit from the use of professional photography. As much as local businesses have relied on word of mouth over the years, many shoppers go to the internet first. If they like what they see, they may actually put the business on their list of stops.
H Carlson Florist is a wonderful example of a local business that has thrived over the years because they are truly unique. Nancy Schellhas has a way of creating arrangements and offering quality goods for the home and hearth so that it leaves your local Pottery Barn in the dust. Outside, seasonal plantings dominate. During the fall season there are the traditional mums along with a healthy dose of pumpkins, gourds and corn.

Porches can help sell homes. This year I had several homes with impressive porches to photograph. I see a lot of agents attempting to photograph porches and they almost always try to capture the porch from the street level as part of the money shot of the house, with perhaps a close-up closer to the front door. And that’s great as far as it goes. And its very important to photograph that porch so that buyers can see the full potential of this amenity.
When buyers look at a condo or cooperative complex, they are buying more than the unit, they are buying the lifestyle. How the common areas are presented online and in brochures can really have an impact on overall interest. Naturally, if your buyer craves a sleek modern look, the ornate detail of an Art Nouveau is going to attract them. But on the other hand it may win over a buyer who loves pre-war architecture and moldings. Buyers do tend to purchase a house or condo that feels “right” for them. Certainly something like the entry, even though it is a common area plays a role in those overall feelings regarding the complex.
Photography is becoming one of the most essential components for a successful listing. A strong photographic presentation can create stronger interest in the property, lead to more showings which in turn leads to more offers.
