Petty’s has got ‘snap happy’ with some expert training from local photography experts, IMAGESbyDAVID to ensure that they are on top of their game when taking photographs of properties being launched to the market.

“A picture tells a thousand words and there really is no better way of showcasing the true character of a home than with excellent photography for our window displays, website and brochures. It really captures the attention of potential buyers and also reaffirms to the sellers that we want to show their home off in the right way, no misleading angles or camera trickery – just first class images that bring the homes to life.”

Having invested in new camera equipment for the company,members of the estate agency team spent two days on a specifically tailored course led by David covering various techniques, camera technology, focus, exposure and angles. Having completed a classroom based session at his studio in Barrowford, the team were then taken to a show home to put their new found skills into practice before sitting down to discuss the images they had taken.

David was thrilled with the feedback received and the success of the course adding: “Ian first came to me at the end of last year and I was excited at the prospect of structuring a program specifically for Estate Agents and also that he had chosen us, a local business, to help him. Every home is unique and so I wanted to make sure that the team look at taking images with a fresh new prospective and not simply another lounge and another kitchen. The success of the programme was evident when we reviewed the final shots as they were more creative, they showed more clarity and also showed true colours too.”

The recent photography training is just one element of a comprehensive training programme that each member of the team undertakes as part of the company’s commitment to training and skills and in order to provide the best service to its clients.
