You have just finished your model homes and now you are hoping to have architectural shots of the property for your website or flyers. You already understand how challenging it is to find a good photographer, especially a good architectural photographer

Even when you have hired someone to create the images for your purpose, you will also have to manage the photography session. If you have never done this before, it can certainly be a huge challenge. Since you are likely extremely busy with your business, you will not have the time to do extra work regarding photography and advertising. 

The world we live in is very visual. People are attracted to images. When people visit your website, you usually have one chance to catch their attention. Your photo gallery should show as much depth as possible; your photos should also maintain a sense of freshness. When you have descriptions of your photos, you should make sure the descriptions are easy to understand.

However, it is mainly the first set of photos that will attract potential customers' attention. When they see the first set of photos, they will usually make up their mind whether they want to continue looking at your web page or move on to someone else's page.

If you want to effectively market your model homes, you need to have the right photography to pull the viewers in or they will not even bother looking at what else you have on your page. If the photography is not good, they will surely move on to another web page that does have good photography. If the photography looks good, they will dig deeper into your website. 

When you look at your website showcasing your model homes, do you think things can be better? Investing in the perfect architectural photography can be one of the essential factors in determining if you will be successful at advertising and marketing your model homes. Contact us at Grey Street Studios, Inc. if you want to get the best images you need to effectively advertise your model homes.

Photography is an art form. Today art is combined with technology to showcase many new views of our landscapes. The technology and availability of new photography equipment has made aerial photography a popular option for those looking to showcase their model homes.

Aerial photography allows photographers to capture your property at angles that you can not get by standing on the ground. With aerial photography, you can capture full angles in one photograph. Also, the ability to survey the rooftops of your model homes are another reason why you should consider aerial photography instead of ground-based photography. 

Photos shot by an aerial photographer can definitely be used as a magnet to attract more interest in your properties. If your model homes are surrounded by trees, these photos are certainly useful. You can showcase all the amazing qualities of the areas surrounding your properties.

With one photo, you can show the potential of the property and the model home. With ground photography, you may have to use up to ten pictures just to give an overall summary of your model home. Aerial photography provides your potential buyers with a comprehensible view in one single photo. 

If you want to provide potential buyers with the opportunity to see your model home and everything surrounding it, such as the nearby locations, the roads, and other things, you can achieve this with aerial photography. Grey Street Studios, Inc. can give you professional aerial photography. Contact us today for more information.
