Matterport 3D Tour
Includes all services necessary to efficiently sell the property on the modern real-estate market.
Matterport 3D Tour
Professional interior and exterior real-estate photography with a captivating 3D virtual-tour that allows prospective buyers to tour the home as if they were really there!
Professional interior and exterior real-estate photography with the added bonus of aerial (drone) photos. Great for larger properties or a home with beautiful surroundings.
All of our photography services include skillful editing, with dust/debris removal and blue-sky enhancement if necessary.
Package photo count varies by property, but is typically between 20 and 50 finished photos.
Examples of LUX vs. HDR can be found down this page.
Dependent on scheduling and weather, we can stay for 30 minutes before Sunset until 30 minutes after Sunset to capture the home with a beautiful Sunset, and show off any striking landscape lighting the property may have.
Although not as natural as a true Twilight Session, we can improvise a faux dusk effect on select exterior photos if a Twilight Session cannot happen due to weather, scheduling, or time restraints.
Note: Virtual dusk adds 1 to 2 days onto the delivery time.
Listings with staged furniture sell 75% faster than empty homes. While not a complete replacement for real in-person staging, we can help alleviate the hassle.
Note: Virtual staging adds 1 to 2 days onto the delivery time.
We can create a complete and professional looking floor plan of the home.
All of our Matterport 3D tours include a “floor plan view” in the tours, however this is an actual floor plan with labels.
For the most high-end luxury homes or properties that are incredibly large, we can dedicate an entire day to photographing your home; this allows us to capture every aspect of the home in the best light possible as the Sun moves throughout the sky as the day progresses.
We still start in the morning to capture the home on the side that faces the rising Sun, progress through the interior of the home in the mid-day, and return to the property later before Sunset to capture the opposite side of the home, as well as take Sunset and Twilight photos.
The most essential service – if you want to sell a home quickly, you need great photos!
Photo count varies based on home size and layout – typically 20-35 photos for smaller homes and 35+ for larger homes.
Includes a minimum of 15 aerial photos from all angles and heights. All aerial photography sessions are subject to weather and air traffic control restrictions.
Blow prospective buyers away with 3D Showcase – an immersive experience that gives buyers a sense of feeling the property before they’ve ever seen it in person. The buyer can tour the inside of the home as if they were really there, see floorplans, a 3D “dollhouse” model, and even take measurements of various features in the property!

The length of time depends on how large the home is and the layout of the home. Generally speaking, the following are average times:
So for example if you have a 2,000 square foot home and order the LUX photography, the Matterport Tour, and the Aerial photography, we will be on-site for about 3 hours.
We also recommend the agent, homeowner, and pets vacate the premises during the interior portion of the photo session, or move to a floor we are not working on. The session will take much longer as we may need to tell individuals to move out of shots that they might not think they are standing in.
You will typically receive 20 to 35 for smaller homes, and 35+ for larger homes. If you add on Aerial Photography, it will also increase your photo count.
But did you know that less is more? According to studies, 2,000 square foot homes with 15 photos on the listing sell the fastest, and 4,000 square foot homes sell the quickest with 30 photos. A good rule of thumb is to divide your square footage by 150 to find your optimal photo count.
The typical home buyer browses listings at work, on lunch break, or in spare time on the weekend. They do not want to look at hundreds of photos in a listing. Always show only the BEST features that your home has to offer, and let them see the rest when they visit it in-person with the agent.
I edit and post-process every photo I take, and the post-processing time varies based on my work load for that week. LUX photography is 48-72 hours delivery time after the day of the session, and HDR is 24-48 hours. However, sometimes I am able to get the photos back to you quicker.
I recommend scheduling the shoot for at least 5 days prior to when you want to list the home, to also account for re-schedules due to weather.
All of our photography services include addition of blue-sky if needed on exterior photos, minor dust/dirt removal from floors and walls on interior photos if possible (case-by-case basis), and removal of the photographer / equipment from aerial photos (sometimes unavoidable). Additionally, with the LUX photography service, we also edit:
WE DO NOT edit out “structural” imperfections in the home or property. We will not replace permanent features of the home with other items that do not exist. We will not photoshop out holes in walls or anything that would cost the buyer money to repair. This is considered misrepresentation of the property and can land the sellers in hot water later on. The general rule of thumb is, if it’s something that can be cleaned or removed easily in real-life, we may also clean or remove it in post-processing. Everything is on a case-by-case basis, and we use our best judgement. Some specific requests by the agent or seller can be accommodated in the editing phase, but extra work beyond our typical scope may be subject to additional fees.
When you contact me and give me the address of the home, I will research and decide on the best date and time to photograph that home that also fits into my schedule.
Generally speaking, cloudiness does not matter. I am able to place a very realistic blue sky in any outdoor photos. Indoor photos tend to come out better in the mid-day or early afternoon, but I can work with any time for the indoor photos and still get great results.
An early morning shoot will work best if the home faces East, and an afternoon shoot will work better if the home faces West. The exception to this rule is if your home is on a lake, and you would like Sunset photos. If you want the best lighting your home has to offer from every angle, consider purchasing an All-Day Session upgrade.
I will travel to photograph your home anywhere in the state of New York, Pennsylvania, or Vermont. Homes that are more than 45 minutes outside my studio location in the Syracuse area are subject to travel time @ $25 per hour for the first 2 hours, and $50 per hour thereafter. This includes to and from. So for example if your home is 2 hours away, you would be charged $25+25+50+50= $150 for travel.
May 2021 pricing guide. Prices are subject to change. Homes outside of the CNY / Syracuse area may be subject to additional travel time fees.
