Did you know that the average viewer decides within the first 20 seconds if they like a property? First impressions are everything and this is a clear way to stand out. Make your listing stand out with a dramatic twilight image. It's guaranteed to get buyers attention and put more eyes on your property.
While not the same quality as our Professional Video Package it does what it is intended to do. Give your potential buyers a real inside look of the property. All Zillow Walk-through video's are shot on stabilizers for a fluid and natural feel.
Our subscription program grants you access to all of our high quality images of local landmarks, restaurants, popular attractions, parks, etc. This also includes images from developments and condominium complexes such as pools, sports amenities, gyms, clubhouses, entrance signs, etc. If you don't see what you need feel free to reach out to us at any time and we will be sure to get out there right away.
Zillow Walk-Through Video
There's no better way to showcase a property than with beautiful aerial images. Our basic aerial package includes up to 10 images (professionally edited) from varying heights to show off the property at it's best angle. Also, rest assured, we use very quiet drones so we don't disturb the neighbors.
Professional Photography including the use of highly skilled photographers, high end professional camera bodies, high end lighting and professional wide-angle lenses to ensure that your property is captured in the absolute best light possible. Our images will never look fake or have any "fish eye" distortion that you see with many other photographers. Our process has been perfected over thousands of properties and is guaranteed to WOW! Perfect interior lighting, accurate colors and perfect window views when they're needed.
Our standard slideshow includes your images put to music over a 2-3 minutes video with standard transitions. Our Advanced Slideshow includes a beautifully animated title (address), Google Earth fly-over, location highlights (schools, shopping, parks), moving skies, moving fire, TV replacements and agent branding. This is a also a fantastic way to market listings through social media.

How long does a shoot take?
What forms of payment do you accept?
We will direct agents/clients on small items such as removal of rugs, trash bins, towels, soap dispensers, etc. We ask that clients send sellers our Styling/Prep guide in advance so they can take care of this before we arrive on site. We will not move/arrange large items such as living room furniture, bedrooms sets, etc.
Absolutely NOT! We understand that you are always busy and never require agents to remain on site during a photo shoot. In fact, we prefer, but not required, to have the least amount of people on site as possible. This makes for a smooth and efficient shoot when we can freely take control of a property. So feel free to grab a cup of coffee or go show that other property. We got this!
Anywhere! Anything outside of 20 miles/30 minutes (each way) from Hamilton, NJ is subject to a travel charge. You will be given a price for travel before the shoot is scheduled.
We accept cash, check, debit, all major credit cards, PayPal, TD Instant Transfer and Venmo. We request that all payments are made within 7 business days of final delivery.
We have an answer for that! www.prepmylisting.com. This website was created solely for the purpose of giving your clients some pointers in getting their home ready to be photographed. We highly recommend that all agents send their sellers this link at least a week before a scheduled shoot. This website is branded for Daniel James Photography but does not contain any pricing information.
How long until I receive the images?
Do you stage properties and move things around?
How do I get my clients to style/prep their home?
