YRSCommercial, Property and Interior Photographer.
A huge proportion of our studio business is property images and interior photography - we're specialists at it - whether images of hotel interiors, new build property photography for large construction companies, interior design images for designers and installations for architects as-well-as images for kitchen design companies or specialist shop fitters for retail or restaurants, throughout the UK.
We are also one of the leading property photographer studios to support the holiday let, guest house and bed and breakfast community -Trip Advisor Registered - our services are often required where their owners are refreshing a property website with a new interior image or producing a new one. We work with many local web designers providing property images and property associations.
YRSCommercial, property photography, interior
design, furnishings and lifestyle photographer.
Being a UK wide property and interior photographer we do find our work differs by studio location. In the Midlands it is mainly commercial property and interiors shot for publication or images of properties which have a historic nature. As for our Scottish studio, from here we work and take images the length of Scotland, worked on hotels and sporting estates the length and breadth of the region.
Locally we work with many of the local agents including CKD, Your Move, Bell Ingram and ASG as well as architects, designers and property owners.
How do YRSCommercial make a difference with our
interior and property photography approach?
As a commercial photography studio specialising in property and architecture images, we think one thing beyond image composition is vital - Lighting! We bring controlled light to your property image and interiors - not camera mounted flash or strobe guns - real, high specification studio flash units and diffusers combined with continuous lighting rigs to maintain and achieve perfect lighting of the interior, room or space. Then we have to think technology. Our Canon L series lenses are controlled for any distortion, guaranteeing quality perspective and sharpness. Now what about the interior - the space itself? We try not only to take interior room-scape or space images, we explore the building, interior or space we are commissioned for. We break the view up, approach the space from different angles or heights, we increase room volume through composition and focus on architectural elements in design. We also focus upon the investment in the space - use of architectural elements, lighting units, furnishings - yes - as for the fabric of the interior or room, this is as important as the room or space itself. If permitted within the brief, we will also explore your furnishings and decoration, build style and craftsmanship to bring the whole room, interior, building or installation to life.
Working with Estate Agents and Managers.
We are registered with a number of key estate agent groups and specialist property landlords. This is in addition to the many local estate agents throughout the UK and property management companies many of which manage properties for holiday let owners or other local landlords, for example Gael Holiday Homes or CKD Galbraith, Bidwells, ASG Commercial, Bell Ingram.
In most cases we are asked to produce property images for their prospectuses or online presence. For some, we provide property floor plans data and measurements. To do this we have invested in laser technology to measure accurately the rooms or interior spaces and the floor plan software, which enables us to produce a simple clean image and property plan which the agent or property manager may then re-draw or copy into their own particulars (often an online software product which we have extensive experience with). We turn-around floor plans in 48 hours. We also work with estate managers to catalogue property investments and building conditions. Quite a broad range of property photography solutions.
Working with Sporting & Property Estates.
Often as an extension to our commercial estate and architectural services we are asked to provide commercial images of the sporting estate. These images show the operations and day to day life of the estate - not just property. We have developed a more easily transported 'studio-rig' to help us up and down the hills, so we can easily follow the shooting party, forestry team or fishery unit. We have also an extensive natural history image library, which is then accessed to show the wildlife and landscape of the estate - completing the value of the sporting environment.
Working with Architects and Building Designers.
For this part of our business please follow this link to our page on architectural photography. Shop fitters, kitchen installers and interior designers. It's all about your choices. Yes, the images we try and explore here are the choices you make as a designer and fitter - how you make a small space large, a cramped space useful, the choice of fabrics in the design, as well as other materials. Above all, the proposition your design sells - the dream kitchen, the retail savvy shop front, the hotel with home from home comforts or state of the art contemporary design. Yes, this last one is the key to the interior image brief as this is the bit the creates more work for you as a designer - how you as a designer or fitter have taken your clients brief and then turned it in to the living or workplace which inspires. Again, we're not restricting our services and work the entire length of the UK!
Working with BNB, Guest House and Hospitality property owners.
We typically shoot over 200 hospitality properties a year throughout the UK! Yes that's a lot of property photography. The fact that we control the light for the interior images and help all our client owners consider the use of fabrics, food and space to promote their places to stay means we're referred to throughout Scotland and the West Midlands. We also provide an image archive service to hotel, BNB and guest house owners where images are needed to support their website and promotional use on booking engines - here we liaise with agency, booking companies and designers to help get the best use and formatting of our images for our clients. We've even provided landscape images to clients for wall art.
