"WOW! That is all I have to say! WOW. You did an amazing job!"
- Michelle Sanders, Keller Williams Signature Partners
"I have to tell you, your pictures are nothing short of amazing. The angles and the way you capture the essence of a room are really perfect. I know the value of a great photographer, but I never thought I would see the value at this price point. I'm quickly becoming a believer. In fact, I would argue that having professional photos taken of Eva's condo may be the single best thing that could happen to this listing. Thank you…they are fantastic."
- Josh Bates, Harry Norman Realty
"They are absolutely fabulous. I am actually really impressed with how well the pictures turned out. Somehow you made empty rooms come to life and have character. I am not sure how I will be able to narrow it down to 25! I will definitely be adding the link in the remark section for people to be able to link to. Thank you so much!"
- Cheri O'Connor, Keller Williams Signature Partners

“You never get a second chance to make a first impression.”
If you've recently browsed through the multiple listings, then you undoubtedly came to the same conclusion that I and many potential home buyers have... that 90% of home photography poorly represents the home being viewed on-line. That could be a turning point that determines whether a potential home buyer continues looking at the on-line photos, or goes on to the next one. When a home buyer passes up a listing due to poor photography, the result is a lost opportunity. The only way keep home buyers interested is by enticing them with a great first impression, which is only possible with great real estate photography. The same principal applies to the sales of commercial listing. Please read on...
The purchase of a home is the biggest investment most people make in their lifetime, and photos are the first things a buyer looks at when considering the purchase of a home. We realize that great home photography is a major factor influencing potential buyers to visit your listing. Point and shoot cameras and iPhones will not provide the high quality, high definition results you need to intrigue your clients. This can only be achieved with professional photographic equipment and a photographer who not only knows how to use it, but also knows how to use it to capture the best angles and lighting in and around the home. Producing professional home photography is what we provide. Our goal is that our service and results speak for themselves so that you will use us again and recommend us to your colleagues, friends, and family.
We will always respect your time as well as that of the homeowner's, and make sure that the home is respected as well.
For your convenience we can access the home using a Supra eKey. Please make sure that the home is properly prepared and showcased for photography. We will move certain small items out of view as required, but we prefer that the home is photo-ready when we arrive. You will be pleased with the results, as will your clients.
Pricing is calculated using a flexible and scalable formula that is very reasonable and based on a percentage of the homes listed price starting at $150.00. All real estate photography includes a Virtual Tour with license-free music. There is no additional charge for the Virtual Tour. We look forward to discussing this in more detail with you either in person or on the phone. You may also request a quote by using our contact form. Please be sure to provide the home location, listed price, and date you require photography. Click HERE for current Real Estate Photography prices

We never charge for rush processing. You can expect your photography to be ready within 24 hours or less (*Saturday photography will be ready by Monday).
Depending on the size of the home, photographic sessions generally take between 1 1/2 and 2 1/2 hours. Our goal is to provide you with an adequate number of photos (usually 50-60) from which to make your selection for on line listing with the Multiple Listing Service (limited to 25 photographs for on-line viewing). All photos will be available on our web site for convenient downloading and sized as specified by the MLS. You will receive an e-mail notification with the link as soon as they are ready. The virtual tour will be posted on our site and on YouTube (unless otherwise requested), and we provide you with link to the on-line locations. As an added value and to aid in to your sales effort, we encourage you to share the link to the photos on our site with potential home buyers in order that they may view the complete photo gallery of your listed homes. You gallery includes your contact information and a map link to the homes location. This enables them to see far more photographs than have been posted on the MLS, as well as the virtual tour. There is no additional charge for this service, and there is never a surcharge for rush processing or weekend photography.
Upon request, we can also provide beautiful panoramic photography of your properties.
A High Definition Virtual Tour is available for all Real Estate Photography by JMAUROPHOTO for an additional fee (offered free for projects valued at $250 or more). Virtual Tours are produced using the complete set of high quality photographs provided and are compiled using professional video editing software. Tours are sequenced in order to give the viewer a sense of going through the home and are enhanced with license-free soundtracks. Virtual tour are limited to between 1 1/2 and 3 minutes in order to keep the viewers attention. JMAUROPHOTO virtual tours are of a much higher quality than those automatically generated by the MLS. You may chose to have your Virtual Tour branded with your name and contact information or to have it unbranded. Completed virtual tours are posted on YouTube and/or on jmaurophoto.com. It is very easy to grab the link from YouTube and post it on your own web site, or if you prefer you can embed the virtual tour on your site so your potential buyers stay on your site. Due to the processing and editing times, virtual tours are generally provided within 48 hours of receiving the MLS number.
Our services go beyond great home photography. In addition to the photography and virtual tours,we also support your sales efforts with search engine optimization (SEO) by tagging all photos and the virtual tour to enhance the likelihood that your listings will be found by search engines such as Google, Bing, Yahoo, etc. Additionally, newly photographed homes are promoted on our Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest, and Google + pages to further maximize exposure of your listings.
When potential buyers see the first photo of your home, that photo should entice them to see the rest. If after having seen all of the photos they are interested in a showing, then the photography has served its purpose. However, no matter how good the quality of the photography, if the subject of the photography is not up to par, then instead of convincing your viewer(s) to continue looking, they may be more likely to move on to see the next house. If this happens, then the presentation failed. This can easily be avoided by either professional staging or basic home preparation.
