(drumming music) - A 3,000 square foot location, 20 finished or almost finished photos in about an hour and a half so I'll just say just under five minutes per photograph, you don't get to pick what time of day it's gonna be, might be blazing sunshine and it might be pouring rain. Sound pretty good? Welcome to the world of residential real estate photography. I'm Scott Hargis, I'm an architectural and interiors photographer out of Oakland, California and I got my start shooting real estate four houses a day just like this one every single day.
We're here in Ojai, California. I'm gonna take you on an overall look at a whole house residential shoot. We're gonna do the entire house inside and out and I'll show you everything that I do to make almost finished photos in the camera on location so I can deliver them the next day with minimal post-processing. You're gonna see all the major rooms get shot. At the end of it I'll show you the entire set of pictures that I would deliver from this house. We're gonna get started right now.
