Shooting Perfect Bathroom Pictures (7 Tips)


Making a bathroom look good with real estate photography is no easy task, there are tricks that photographers use to make them look simple and fresh.

Hampton Roads Real Estate Photography founder Jordan DiCaprio covers seven important tips to remember when trying to produce picture-perfect bathroom photos.

7 Bathroom Photography Tips

  1. Remove clutter from the counter top and floor. This includes everything of a personal nature. Toothpaste/toothbrush, deodorant, makeup, etc should all be removed for the photo. Only keep generic items such as hand towels, candles, and other decorative items.
  2. While removing unwanted items from the counter top, make sure the faucet is straight. If you are going through the effort to tidy up, don't forget this small detail.
  3. Close the toilet seat lid. There is no instance where an open toilet seat is ideal, close that lid!
  4. Depending on the look of the shower, make a decision to close or open the shower curtain. Typically, only custom built showers are uncovered.
  5. To let natural light in but also block out the neighbors, open up blinds halfway. For larger bathrooms, an additional light may be necessary.
  6. Be mindful of your reflection in the mirror. If you or the camera can not be hidden from the mirror, consider an advanced editing service to hide the offending item, such as Hampton Roads Real Estate Photography's Custom Editing Service. Contact for details.
  7. Hire a professional photographer - At the end of the day, the best results are typically had by using a professional photographer that focuses on Real Estate Photography. Explore our services by visiting the Services page and always feel free to call with any questions!
