MileStone Training Academy: Property Photography Training



Stroma Certification have partnered with MileStone Property Training Academy to offer a Property Photography Training course. Completion of the course will help Domestic Energy Assessors (DEAs) to take professional photographs for use in domestic energy assessments.

This one-day course is available exclusively to Stroma members at a discounted rate of £249. The course is carried out by experienced DEA and NDEA professionals who are experts in property photography and this tried and tested technique. Being able to offer professional property photos as part of your services will put you at a distinct advantage over your competitors and help you to generate extra revenue. Once the training course is complete, you can confidently begin offering your clients a professional property photography service.


Work with estate agents

With the increasing popularity of web-based estate agents, the demand for self-employed photographers is increasing. Many DEAs work for estate agents, but very few offer professional photography. The course focuses on property photography so that DEAs can offer professional photos throughout energy assessments to offer to estate agents and attract new clients.

Market research suggests that estate agents will often look for an assessor who can carry out property photography and floorplans in addition to the EPC. This is because they aim to minimise disruption to their clients' schedule as much as possible.

There are also many benefits of your photography which you can provide to an estate agent. You can help them to stand out and impress vendors with professional, high quality photographs. You can also minimise disruption with a singular visit to the property to take all required photos for the estate agent as part of your domestic energy assessment.
