Man, I really have to figure out a way to tell home owners to leave me alone. Twice this year I have had owners yapping in my ear so much that I forgot to shoot some rooms. Now, I have to go back to the house. I know it is my fault, but I am too nice to say 'hey, STFU I am working here'. LOL

Nice stuff as usual Scott.

Tyler, I'd smile and tell them that I need to concentrate, laugh about it and say thank you. That's about it. I've done that countless times and it works every time; we have a business to run, so they should respect that and if they don't then they can just take their business elsewhere.

I like the 'I need to concentrate' part. The sellers are my client's clients, not 'my' clients. Therefore I feel as if I have an obligation to be polite. But, I think most people will appreciate that statement.

Just draw the line after a few minutes and say 'Alright, I'm gonna get started, but if you have any questions for me just let me know"

Usually does the trick...

Have any of you seen HDRhomes.com? I believe they're based in Denver, CO- anyway they have some pretty good stuff and say they can shoot a home in about 30minutes?? That seems pretty fast to me even if they're just firing of 3 or 5 exposures and doing all HDR and they charge $129 for 20 shots.

I just shot a home yesterday (first time getting paid for it!!) and it still took me about a 1:45 and then approx 5 hrs of processing- Am I that slow? Does $129 for 20 processed shots seem reasonable or pretty cheap to you guys?

$129 seems pretty cheap to me. :/ Meaning they are costing themselves a lot of money. IT inclused an HD 360 video also among a ton of other stuff. That's just crazy.

Not that I have any real estate experience but I wouldn't bother doing a shoot for under $400..your time is valuable, do you think your work was only worth $18/hr?

So, I had my third shoot last night. This house was much smaller (and felt very empty as there were not much stuffs...) than previous two homes, and I'm starting to realize my 24mm will not cut it anymore... I think I will have to get something wider pretty soon if I want to continue shooting RE. Anyways, here are a few from last night. They were mostly shot with AEB -1,0,+1 at f/11, then blended in photomatix, then adjusted in LR3. I know they are nowhere near your standards, so please feel free to fire your CC so I can learn more! Thanks.

From what I read they have different people for different roles. There is the photog and then there is the editing person. I am curious what they pay the photog.

But, I am glad you posted this so everyone can see the kind of BS pricing we have to deal with here in CO. Even the photogs in Breck and Aspen are cheap compared to others I know in other places. This company is only going to make things harder for those that want to charge a fair rate for their service.

-Joon, those shots look pretty awesome!

-TG, I figured you would appreciate that one, living in Colorado and all, wasn't sure if maybe you already knew of them or any of the people involved there. I actually saw a posting on Craigslist for that company looking for someone to maybe edit photos but mostly help boost marketing. I think they are a fairly new start up as in this year.. If they can keep it up and deliver the goods on time they will make things real difficult

I read through the site and I recognize the names of the two founders. I think they were with another company a couple years back because this company started in 2010. I am not 100% sure but I think they, or at least one of them, was working with Obeo. I just know the names from reading them before. Especially the whole 'proprietary' stuff. Obeo runs a very similar setup. They have their own HDR software and they photogs just shoot and upload, that is is. The fact that they also offer the panos in this day and age also makes me think there was some history with Obeo. The big difference is the pricing, they are about half the price of what Obeo charges. I know from a buddy of mine that Obeo only pays their photos about $40 a shoot. But, again, there is no processing to so. You go in, you shoot, you upload, that is it. Now, 'if' that can be done in 30 minutes, then that is good money per hour. However, you would have to shoot 6-8 homes a day to make enough money to live in Denver. I also know that with Obeo they would give you territories so you were not having to drive all over town. This was great for the photog but bad for the agent. If the agent had listings in Highlands Ranch, Westminster, and Aurora then they would have three different photogs. One thing about Obeo was their lack of consistency in photos. Some would look great and others would look bad with crooked lines and poor composition.

For $129 I just can not see how they can pay a photog, pay an image editing person and still make money. Unless of course their software is able to do all the work itself and the editing person only spends a couple hours per house.
