Someone has to take all those great looking pictures of properties that accompany house for sale listings, and it can be an easy way to make some extra money. If you are interested in becoming a real estate photographer in Bend or anywhere else, you don’t necessarily need a college degree, although a background in design, photography or architecture is useful. One of the first steps is to put together a portfolio of work and then promote your services on social media. In addition to having some photographic skill, you’ll need to be well organized, and have good time management so that you can photograph several properties in one day. You’ll typically need to use your own vehicle to get to and from sites, and although many real estate photographers work for a real estate company, freelancing is also a realistic option.
