Operating on trust

When I started professional real-estate photography, I had expected some clients to direct me during the shooting process and then to carefully choose 25 photos from the 40 or 50 that I’ve taken for inclusion on the MLS. While it’s certainly true that some clients will mention one or two features they want to make sure I photograph and then want to make their own selections from all the photos I’ve taken, but most are trusting me to take the right photos and then select the 25 best ones to represent a house on the MLS. Sometimes it’s a little scary to think that they’re depending so much on me, but sometimes it also makes me feel good that they trust me so much. Fingers crossed that it keeps going this way.
