Daytime photography to highlight the beauty of Victor Harbor properties
Choosing the right time of day to photograph your home all depends on what you want your buyers to see first.
Your ‘hero shot’ is the key to making or breaking your listing!
You have 8 seconds to sell that hero shot before your potential buyers move on to the next listing.
Think about it.
It’s not a lot of time.
You want that first photo to draw in your potential buyers
Homes with exceptional or dramatic views are best suited for a daytime shoot. For a magnificent rural retreat with acres of land and dreamy countryside views; aim for a time where the sun is soaking the hills.
Taking real estate or architectural professional photos during the golden hour
In landscape photography, sunrise and sunset are often referred to as the ‘golden hour’. This time of day is when the sun is lower, and the light is softer. Because of the suns low angle, shadows are less intense and are not as harsh. Landscape photographers favour this time of day because the low light produces more mood and colour in their images.
Homes along the Fleurieu Peninsula with ocean views benefit from this time of day because the colour of the ocean is softer and more vibrant. Likewise, with rural views, the softer light enhances the views and gives more depth and emotion to the overall photo.
Why is the time of day important to real estate photography?
Because we want to create mood, evoke emotions and tell a story with one photo. These are the type of photos that WILL attract buyers.
Unfortunately, we cannot always guarantee bright, blue skies, but if you have a view worth highlighting, then it is worth waiting for that perfect moment.

This stunning house sold within the first week of hitting the market! Incredible!

Daytime shoot, compilation
A compilation of some of our favourite homes that we have photographed.
Seagull Avenue, Hayborough
The marketing video for this property was all about the drone footage. Flying the drone from the beach and towards the house showcased the uninterrupted views from the balconies.
Janz Avenue, Goolwa
We kept the lifestyle elements very subtle because where the house is positioned is the main selling point. We added extra drone footage to showcase the water either side of the house.
