All in all you’re just another brick in the wall. What? No dark sarcasm?

Not sure what purpose this photo serves to buyers. A photographer’s shadow and bags of trash.

Mr. Photographer, you need to get out of the mirror’s reflection. [Phoenix, Arizona]

170113a

Same for you. [Sun City, Arizona]

170113b

Be careful of your shadow. [Houston, Texas]

Christmas Is Over, Valentine’s Day Is Next

December 30th, 2016 · 5 Comments

Christmas was five days ago. These sellers were so excited about Christmas.

161230a

And they are getting excited for Valentine’s Day! (And Easter too?)

161230b

Knotted window curtain?

161230c

Easter lilies?

161230d

Dark bedroom with tiger bedspread.

161230e

Where’s the M&M Man’s left hand?

Another cluttered room.

So much to put away before selling.

Can’t Get It Right

November 8th, 2016 · No Comments

Poor photographer. He’s looking down, not realizing he’s in the mirror.

161108a

In the next bathroom, he did the same thing again: Look down and shoot.

161108b

And then again for good measure, this time with the lights off.

161108c

This last time, he aimed lower. And yet the seller still approved posting all four real estate photos for the public to see, instead of demanding the photographer take new photos (or hiring another photographer).

Reflections On Reflections

September 26th, 2016 · No Comments

There are certain real estate photographers who aren’t very clever. Or at least clever enough to stay out of the mirror’s reflection. This photographer is smiling.

160926a

Halfway gone from the photo. Nice try.

160926e

At least this photographer kept his face and body out of the reflection.

160926b

If he had stood in the corner on his right…

160926c

Thank you for wearing sunglasses. I didn’t have to block out your eyes to protect your identity.

Cramped Rooms

September 23rd, 2016 · 2 Comments

The photographer used a fish-eye or wide angle lens to take these photos.  The end result: the beds look like they take up the entire room.

160923a

How do you walk around the room?  Either the furniture is too big or the bedroom is too small.

160923b

Same thing in the next bedroom.  The bed looks massive.

160923c

From another viewpoint, it looks better.  The photo above should not have been used.

Closet Close-Up

August 12th, 2016 · 1 Comment

The seller is trying to emphasize the closet can hold a lot of clothes.  It certainly does.

Better Real Estate Photos Needed

June 29th, 2016 · 2 Comments

Come on.  We can do better than these.  Buyer rely on photos to determine if there is an interest in seeing a house.

A photo of a photo.  With a car blocking the house.

It does get hot in Phoenix, but it won’t kill you to step outside the car for 15 seconds.

Super creepy.  No fish-eye photos please.

The photo’s caption reads “master bedroom.”  Does it have a window, a closet, or a door?  Is it deeper than five feet?
