Surprisingly, lots of agents still don’t have professional photographs – do they really think that photos taken on their phone will create the best impression?

With limited time and countless properties to review, buyers and tenants will quickly move on if photos don’t reflect well on a property. Properly lit, high-resolution photos are the only type of pictures that should be used. We have teamed up with one of the UK’s best property photographers to make sure that if you are selling or letting, your home is presented in its best light and if you are looking to buy or rent you will be able to get a real impression of what the property is like before deciding to view it.

Profile: Constantine Lourdas

With 30 years’ experience in the architectural and commercial property field, we are proud to work exclusively in conjunction with Lourdas photography, who personally trains every one of our team.

“Photography is in my blood. My father was a professional photographer and I worked alongside him for many years, learning all the tricks of the trade, whilst developing my own style. I specialise in architectural photography and have won numerous awards for my work, including winner of “The Award for Excellence in Architecture” at the British Professional Photographic Awards.

I am delighted to be the principle photographer for Ivy Gate. I get to see some amazing properties and meet some fascinating people. I always try to visualise myself living in the house to get the best shots and the best angles. I often take numerous photos of the same room and select the best aspect, light and scene.

When I photograph a home I want to transport prospective buyers into the lifestyle, not just the property. I look forward to making your home look exceptional too.”
