The photo shoot will take about an hour per thousand square feet of living space.

I will be photographing the inside and outside of your home. I’ll be photographing all of the major rooms. I normally do not photograph the garage unless it has special features. If you have special features of your home that are not obvious please let me know about these so I include them in the shoot.

Let me know if your home contains valuable works of art. I can edit photos to make these items unrecognizable or make sure they are not in the photographs.

If you have questions please contact your realtor or Reed Radcliffe @ 314.276.7481
