Real Estate Photography FAQ for Chicago-Based Agents

FAQ for Real Estate Photography: All About Our Services

We’ve provided a highly informative real estate photography FAQ on what you can expect from our world-class services here at FiO Creative.


Q: What are the Best Real Estate Photography Practices?

A: We often get asked about the big deal with top-notch real estate photos. Here’s the scoop: Awesome photos and videos grab attention fast, and let’s face it, first impressions are everything! Pro photographers? We’re like wizards. We nail the right angles to show off spaces, make rooms feel bigger, and keep homes looking bright and inviting. And yep, we’ve got you covered with stellar photos, videos, 3D tours, and floor plans!


Q: How Long Will It Take to Photograph My Property?

A: We’re dedicated to giving you the highest quality media possible. Photo shoots take around 90 minutes on average. Video shoots take up to an hour.


Q: Can the Homeowners Be Home During the Shoot?

A: Absolutely. Homeowners are more than welcome to be home while we are photographing. However, we recommend that any people and pets stick to one area as we make our way through the home to avoid getting in any photos.

A:  You can book your appointment with us directly from our website.


Q: When is the Best Time to Schedule Real Estate Photography?

A: We can make your property look great in any light. Typical appointments are scheduled between 9am-6pm, depending on when the sun sets. Dusk and twilight appointments are also available when appropriate. Contact us for more information on if those are right for you!


Q: How Much Notice Do You Need to Book My Appointment?

A: We recommend booking your appointment a minimum of a few days in advance to guarantee your choice of timing. If you need a last minute appointment, email us at and we’ll see if we can squeeze you in!


Q: How Long Will It Take to Receive My Photos?

A: Your photos will be ready before 5pm the day after the shoot.
