Are you a realtor (estate agent in my lingo) or aiming to sell a service to them? This could make a big difference.

My experience hereabouts — Saint Louis, Missouri, USA — is rather poor with real estate photography. Last time I checked, agents will be willing to pay at most $100 for 10 photos, which is not enough to cover costs for good photography. The market for agents is perverse, with many part-time agents making very little income, and with only a few making a good living. Generally, poor photography is expected and delivered on all levels.


If you search the forums going back 4,5,6 years, they very same questions were asked. IIRC, the consensus was that Realtors are pretty cheap, and unwilling to pay for pro photos that are just gonna end up in an MLS listing, or in the Sunday paper advert.
