ABOVE & BEYOND: MASTERING REAL ESTATE DRONE PHOTOGRAPHY

The world of real estate is fast changing and to stand out from the crowd, captivating visuals are key to attracting potential buyers and standing out in the market.  

Gone are the days when standard photographs taken from the ground level sufficed – now, aerial photography, particularly with the use of drones, has become a game-changer in the industry, offering unique perspectives and stunning views.  

In this video, our co-founder Brad unveils his expert tips for capturing breathtaking aerial property shots with a drone, to help your real estate marketing soar above the competition.

 

Setting Up for Success 

The journey commences with selecting the ideal drone for the job. Brad recommends the DJI Mini 3 Pro, thanks to its affordability, user-friendly interface, and exceptional quality. In the video, Brad runs through his recommended camera settings and some practical setup tips to get the best possible output with this drone.  

Capturing the Perfect Shots 

Brad highlights three essential shots that every real estate professional should capture when utilizing drone photography for their listing: 

1. Overhead Shot 

Brad recommends shooting a bird’s eye view of the property, to showcase the entire land and its features. To elevate this shot further, pair it with one of our Aerial Editing solutions, which are specifically designed to give your drone shots that extra wow factor. Aerial Color Fade puts all the emphasis on your listing while fading the neighboring properties to black and white.  

2. High-Angled Facade Shot 

This is generally a very appealing angle for a property to be photographed at. Brad highly recommends this shot for properties with a sloped driveway, as it allows for the entire facade to be captured in the photo, while still maintaining a flattering composition. Plus, our $1.60 Image Enhancement edit will adjust 17 elements of this photo, to transform it into an exceptional, click-worthy hero-shot.  

3. Suburb Profile Shot 

This shot is ideal to highlight nearby amenities and natural landmarks within a short drive from the property. Clearly label them with our Aerial Drop Pin edit, to depict how close the property is to the points of interest and spark a connection with potential buyers.  

The Sky’s the Limit 

Armed with a drone and your newfound knowledge, seize the opportunity to propel your marketing efforts to soaring new heights today.
