Do you use elevated photos?

Asked by Nate Oskar, 86336 Thu Jul 5, 2007

Using elevated photos, where the photographer comes out and takes pictures from as high as 50' on a mast, has really helped draw attention to my listings and make them stand out. Anyone else using them?

Actually - that sounds like you are taking the extra step to get your listing noticed. Your seller can appreciate the extra effort you are placing into selling their property! Kudos to you... so many times the pictures are dark and you cant see the detail of the room.

Way to go - I think you've given me some ideas!

Hey Nate!
I don't think elevated photos alone will sell the property. However, aerial photos combined with excellent interior and exterior pictures DO make a difference!
Look at my gallery at
Good luck!

I am an aerial photographer with my own company in the San Diego area. I believe in the utility of what I'm doing, however, the concept of elevated imaging is catching on very, very slowly here... Reading one of the responses here is that it sounds expensive - actually no. Compare a one time startup cost of having the equipment to do this type of photography against the recurring cost of general aviation and it's truly cost effective - with detail you'd never get with an airplane or satellite photo. Go to and see our website. The set up time is pretty quick; drive to the location, hook up the laptop and camera equip, raise the mast and your done. A typical job - all 4 sides of a property are taken in about 45 minutes from arrival time.

Never heard of it -- sounds interesting and... expensive. Too much preparation for the action. However, you could share with us if it was successful or not?
