Did you know that many of the listing photos we see online are actually produced overseas? Sure, the pictures are taken by a local photographer. But what many people don’t know is that in many cases the photo editing is outsourced overseas before the final images are published online.
The same goes for virtual staging. Many of the virtually staged images that we see online are actually produced by people who live halfway around the world.
From an economic perspective, this approach to photography is beneficial to the consumer. It leverages cheap, overseas labor to efficiently deliver an affordable product.
But in the bigger picture it comes at a cost -- because it bypasses an opportunity to create meaningful work and support our economy right here in Dane County.
Which is one of the reasons why Tracy Kapela works as a full-time photographer and visual marketer on our team. Tracy is a talented photographer who edits her own photos and produces her own virtual staging. Her skill set also includes graphic design, website design, property floor plans, property brochures, newsletters, and more.
