Professional photographer Clare Waters has joined the team at Mansell McTaggart estate agents in Uckfield.
Clare, 21, studied photography at GCSE and A-Level before joining a property company in Tunbridge Wells and photographing properties across the South East for three years.
Clare, who lives in Crowborough and attended Beacon Academy, said: “More recently I decided I wanted to start a career in estate agency but still carry on my passion for photography and that led me to join Mansell McTaggart.
“I aim to provide our vendors with not only a set of photos to market their property and get the sale, but also to produce a set of details they can look back at and cherish once they sell the property on.”
She added that being a photographer on staff enabled her to make the most of the sun when it shone. Capturing homes in the sunlight always made them look more desirable.
She was also able to build up a good relationship with the vendor working with them to show the house in the best way.
Clare added: “As much experience as I have on what angle works and what doesn’t, they will have seen something different to myself as they have lived there for a while so we can merge ideas and get creative.
“I believe that bringing the photography back in-house gives a personal touch. We can be more flexible to suit vendors’ needs while also getting great results.”
