I arrived at the shoot at just before 10 a.m., at the same time as the Realtor and her assistant. Her assistant was clearly not impressed that the Realtor had hired a professional virtual tour photographer to come in. The assistant approached the house, centered herself directly in front of the front door, snapped a few photos with her disposable camera, and headed for the front door. I looked at my watch, smiled, and followed her inside the house without taking any photos.
I assured the real estate agent that she would be able to download our still photos the same day, so she would be able to use them to list the property.
The assistant and I crossed paths a few times during the shoot. At a difficult bathroom shot, she stood in the middle of the doorway and took a photo. By this time, the Realtor had been watching us for awhile, and she asked her assistant to try and get the shot without showing herself standing in the doorway.
The assistant turned and said, “It is what it is.” “It’s just digital so if I don’t like it, I’ll just delete it.”
I smiled. Attitudes like this are what keeps my phone ringing all day long!!
