Same day turnaround on many packages

* Professional equipment for producing the highest quality photography

* Available on short notice

* 100% satisfaction guarantee. If you aren’t happy with the quality of the work, simply reject the photos from the shoot and you won’t be charged.

* We charge by the amount of work required to produce a professional result, and NOT the square footage of the home. This way you can control how much you’d like to spend on each listing.


Pricing Packages

Daytime Standard Package -$169

This is a typical photo shoot that is suitable for most homes that can be photographed during daytime hours (before 4PM).

* Aerial photos of the front elevation of the home using drone photography or pole techniques

* 24 finished photos are delivered

* Basic post-processing of the photos in Photoshop and Lightroom.

* Same-day delivery of photos


Daytime Premium Package - $185

This is a good listing option for mid-range listings where more care needs to be taken to produce the best result. The biggest difference in this package is that we spend more time preparing the home for each shot. We’ll move couches around (with homeowner’s approval), tidy up loose things in the kitchen, etc). This takes a lot of time but produces a nicer result. Shoot must occur during daytime hours.

* Aerial photos of the front elevation of the home using drone photography or pole techniques

* 40 finished photos are delivered

* Basic post-processing of all photos in Photoshop and Lightroom.

* Premium post-production of the exterior photo as well as main kitchen photo. This may involve sky replacements, content-aware fill, and other more time-consuming post-production techniques that produce a better finished photo.

* Off-Camera flash techniques used in main living areas to produce a more polished result.

* Same-day delivery of photos

Twilight Premium Package - $225

Photos taken at twilight are the absolute best way to photograph a home. This can either be done right at sunrise, or at sunset. The exterior of a home with a deep blue night sky looks absolutely stunning but takes much more from the photographer to produce the shoot quickly and at a set time, thus the premium cost.

* Aerial photos of the front elevation of the home using drone photography or pole techniques with optimal blue hour lighting (just after sunset). Flash is used on the front elevation of the home to produce a gorgeous look to the photo

* 45 finished photos are delivered

* Premium post-production of all photos. This may involve sky replacements, content-aware fill, and other more in-depth post-production that produce a better finished photo.

* Off-Camera flash techniques used in all areas of the home to produce a more polished result.

* Next-day delivery of photos

Ethics Statement

Birton R. Gilbert Photography performs post-production work on all photos and videos. While we do our best to make sure the photos are an accurate and ethical representation of a home, we also use techniques to enhance the photos to look their best.

These techniques include but are not limited to:

* Stitched panoramic photography

* HDR

* Content-aware fill

* Sky Replacement

If at any time you are uncomfortable with a photo, you may always request the original, unretouched photo to determine if the photo ethically and accurately represents the home. It is the responsibility of the real estate agent to ensure that the photo is an accurate representation.
