Sometimes properties need ‘the full shoot’ whereas other times such as this recent property photography shoot in Exeter a more simple approach can be employed; this isn’t about cutting standards though but it is about making pragmatic choices.
For ‘the full shoot’ most photographers would bring good quality equipment, certainly a solid tripod and invariably lighting. A lot of time would be spent of dressing rooms too. And then quite possibly time would be spent on post-processing.
However a lot of time if the needs aren’t for ‘brochure quality’ spaces can be photographed more easily and savings can be made. Ultimately it depends on the needs of the photography, and how (and where) the images are going to be used.
