Property Photography Course Content
This course is broken into sections. First, we deal with the camera and equipment you could use.
Unlike other trainers, I am realistic about the budget you may have for photography gear. Perhaps, you have no influence over the equipment you get to use.
In this section, I explain all the different options and the pros and cons of each.
In this section we don’t just cover cameras, we look at tripods, flashes, lighting equipment, lenses and remote controls. I also tell you how you can work with the equipment you have, even if it is not ideal.
The next section is Photography Skills. Many trainers like to make photography sound complicated – it is not. I will keep it simple and focused on what you need to know to take great property photos. We will start with the simple stuff and just build it up until you have the knowledge to take great property photographs like a pro
Ensuring that the photo shoot is a success is determined before you even arrive at the property. We cover what to do before the shoot to make sure it is a success. These are the things that if you educate your property owners on, will ensure a successful shoot.
The next section follows on to Preparing The Property. This section is the final touches of getting the property right before taking the photos.
We are finally ready to start taking property photos! We build on all of the technical skills you have learnt earlier in the course to make sure your photos really ‘pop’.
The next section looks at Inventory Photos and how to be take them.
Who is this course for?
This course is for anyone who wants to take great property photographs, including:
Real Estate Agents

It makes me laugh that for certain courses you need to have equipment that is completely out of reach for most property & Real Estate professionals. This course will teach you to make the most of the photography equipment that you have, give you the pros and cons of equipment options, as well as showing how to work around not have all the latest and greatest gear.
The minimum equipment needed for this course is a camera – any camera.
If you have a top of the range full frame camera – great! If you have the cheapest compact – no worries! This course is open to all.

Hi, I am Paul Darvell and I am the luckiest man alive as I get to combine my two favourite things: coaching and photography. Having been a keen photographer since a child, I was always destine to work in photography. Photography is in my genes, my father was a keen competition photographer.
I have two Photography businesses. The first is Henley-on-Thames Photo Walks, a photography training company. The second business is Landlord Photography, a specialist property photography company.
Running Henley-on-Thames Photo Walks is the best job in the world. I love taking a novice photographer and quickly providing them with all the skills they need to take great photos.
As well as being a photographer and photography trainer, I am also a published author in Photography and have several books to my name.
