What do you do when you can’t shoot a property and your business relies on it? You invent a way to do it. YouShoot gives anyone with smartphone access to professionally retouched images.
Initially created to address restrictions in Melbourne due to COVID-19 lockdowns, You Shoot solves the problem of not being able to get a photographer on-site, either because of restrictions or a limited budget.
Drawing on the expertise of photography professionals, Urban Angles has devised a quick step-by-step guide for anyone with a smartphone. It’s easy to read and takes the vendor, agent, or manager through the process of shooting a home for sale or rent. For those with less confidence using a camera phone, an appointment with a photographer can be arranged. A consultation with a property marketing manager and photographer is highly recommended to help agents or property managers develop a photography style consistent with their brand.
In or out of lockdown, it’s ideal for regional agents looking for better quality images as well as property managers who want to present a professional appearance, higher perceived value, and increased competition by showcasing rental properties or property for sale in remote regional areas with professionally finished images.
“For our rentals, a lot of landlords don’t consider professional photography like sales campaigns would but YouShoot fits perfectly in a space between, where you can get good quality photography for a reasonable price. Once I had a chat with a photographer for a few pointers, my photos looked great and when they came back they were even better. I think YouShoot is an excellent, innovative product and we’ll be using it again, especially for Property Management. I’m a big fan.” – George Metax, Barry Plant
Agents throughout country Victoria, region NSW, Far North Queensland, and beyond often struggle to find quality resources to help them present a listing from its best angles. You Shoot offers real estate agents nationally the opportunity to build a marketing campaign with a professional overlay that increases enquiries and a higher selling price.
There are plenty of agents in far-flung regions throughout Australia who don’t have access to professional editing. With YouShoot, they simply send through the images to our studio, where our retouchers give the photography a professional touch.”
Agents in Melbourne have embraced the opportunity and are keen early adopters of YouShoot. Many have used the product to list properties in anticipation of changes to rules around private inspections being eased at short notice. It’s another creative marketing strategy agents have deployed to list properties during lockdown to stimulate interest amongst buyers who are ready to go once restrictions are lifted.
“We’ve had great results, we used YouShoot for two properties, and one sold during lockdown! It was perfect for the lockdown period and useful for situations where we couldn’t get access to the. Property with a photographer. Great value for money and the process was easy.” – Kristen Parker, Barry Plant Doreen
