So, you might have an amazing camera but by simply clicking the little dial to ‘A’ and expecting to get great images automatically isn’t going to always work.
Over the years we’ve worked with Roman’s Estate Agents, shooting their portraits, marketing images, new premises, that kind of thing. The interior/exterior shots have always been left to their team members. And this year they wanted to up the ante. With a new website in the pipeline, they wanted better quality images to showcase their portfolio. So which camera was going to be right for them? They wanted something easy to use but that would deliver. We recommended the Nikon D7000 DSLR with a Sigma 10-20mm lens. This is because of the wide angle that this lens is able to achieve compared to compact cameras. And the other reason is that the image quality is much better, esp. in the low light environment that the cameras will be used in.
So they got their cameras but then what? Jon was invited in to educate the whole team on how to use their new kit. There’s lots of photography workshops in Berkshire and the South. Generally aimed at the general public who want to take better pictures of their kids. This was a little different. With near on 100 estate agents needing to crack their camera and produce great images when time is of the essence it was certain a challenge but one we’re glad we took on. It was an intensive day for sure but so worthwhile, it was super to empower the team and with some tips on how to use the camera, how to work with light and how to position yourself to get the best shots, it seems to be working.
The new Roman’s website has launched and the photos on there look amazing. And thank you to Peter Loverdos, Group Operations Director, who summed up what we did below. Much appreciated and any time!
“We are delighted to be working with Jon Bradley. Over the years Jon has worked with our marketing team on a number of initiatives but recently we asked him to get involved with the redevelopment of our new website. A key feature of the new site is the images of the houses within our portfolio. We wanted stronger, more professional looking images and with Jon’s input we’re pleased to say that we’re achieving just that. As well as researching and sourcing a suitable camera for our teams to use, Jon also put together a full days tutorial workshop. The workshop went through everything from how to use the camera to how to get great images. It’s been quite a journey with the new cameras but our teams are getting used to the new regime and we are certainly seeing the benefits of improved quality and differentiated imagery. So thank you Jon for all your help, time and expertise. It’s made a huge difference and we’re delighted with our new website.“
