Interior Photography - Residential - Styled
Styled interior photography is done with the aid of a visual merchandiser who decorates the place to bring life to it. The visual merchandiser may be the interior designer (ID) himself, especially in a small market like Singapore.
From my experience, established interior design companies who truly recognise the quality of photographs would get a visual merchandiser (their inhouse interior designer) to be involved with the photo shoot. The visual merchandiser with his assistant may bring along large boxes of props to replace the home owner's items temporary to complement the furniture. It involves shifting of many items.
Thus, having a visual merchandiser involved in an interior photo shoot project is much more costly than a normal interior photo shoot project because of the extra manpower and time involved.
