REPAI Membership is open to Individual, Independent Professional Real Estate Photographers Only.
Photography Businesses with Staff Photographers, Franchises and Corporate Real Estate Photography Departments ARE NOT eligible for REPAI membership.

Membership in Real Estate Photographers of America & International™ is Just $125 Annually*. You MUST have a fully functional personal business website that clearly demonstrates your abilities as a professional real estate photographer and allows potential customers to both view your work and contact you for photography services.

Membership is not open to beginning or amateur photographers. The REPAI is not a mentoring or educational organization. Please note: Flickr, Facebook and other social media sites are not acceptable business websites. Portfolios hosted on these websites WILL NOT be accepted.

Your application for membership may be rejected if your website portfolio does not meet our minimum standards of professionalism. The following are the most common reasons for application rejection:

1. Uncorrected verticals.
2. Uncontrolled HDR process (garish, unrealistic colors and tones).
3. Uncorrected lens distortion.
4. Awkward or extreme camera vantage points.
5. Images that are clearly speculative and do not reflect real world real estate photography assignments.
6. Portfolio that clearly represents a business emphasis other than real estate photography.

Membership includes up to three REPAI Directory listings with direct links to your own personal email and website. The REPAI Directory is recognized by photography buyers as the most trusted resource for finding qualified real estate photographers. Photography buyers book assignments directly with you through your own personal website, not through REPAI.

Members are listed on their home region page of the REPAI Directory in order of membership date. For instance, if your home state is New York, you will be listed below those who have joined before you and whose home state is also New York. Members are listed on additional directory pages (other than their home region) below those for whom the page is their home region. For instance, if your home state is New York and you want to also be listed in Pennsylvania, your listing will appear below those members whose home region is Pennsylvania. Members are listed on additional directory pages in order of membership date.

Your annual membership fee entitles you to your directory listing as well as periodic newsletters, special offers from REPAI sponsors and participation in professional discussions in the REPAI Flickr Group and the REPAI LinkedIn Group.
