If you are interested in shooting real-estate photographs as a business, today’s episode is for you, as I have two great guests, Rich Baum and Brian Berkowitz, who are successful real-estate photographers and educators. We talk about how they got into photography and what lead them to real-estate photography as a business, and how the pandemic has actually been very kind to them, as people and businesses were unfortunately uprooted as a result. Both gentlemen share a wealth of tips and ‘tricks’ to help you become a better real-estate photographer.

The guys have been releasing their own podcast Shooting Spaces which you can find on all of the major networks, and also created a course each for residential and commercial real estate photography, and have kindly provided a discount code for listeners. You can get a 25% discount using the code MBP25 when you buy either or both courses at
