Upload Images of Your Property to BC’s Location Database
It is a tough audition - only a small number of locations considered are selected for filming, but it is worth the effort. The first step is to create a digital "photofile" of your property – a virtual tour in pictures. The following Photofile Guidelines describe the process for documenting a residential property. Please follow these guidelines for all property types you wish to register, as the same principles apply for effective documentation.
Read through the Photofile Guidelines below in preparation to submit your property.
Image size needs to be between 500KB (minimum) and 6 MB (maximum). If you are using an SLR camera, choose the MEDIUM setting.
Photograph your property in landscape format using the widest shots possible without distorting the image.
- Try to duplicate the experience of someone arriving at the location walking through the building.
- Start with the outside of your house.
- Shoot your neighborhood street looking both ways.
- Take a shot of the house, driveway and yard from across the street.
- Take a wide shot of the back yard and back of house.
- Next shoot the inside of the house one room at a time.
- Pay attention to any special features (bay windows, indoor pool, stairway).
- Stand in one corner of the room you are photographing and take a picture.
- Next, take a "reverse" shot by walking over to the opposite corner of the room and take a photograph of the area in which you were just standing.
- Show entrances in your photos if possible.
PLEASE NOTE: We do not accept images submitted in PowerPoint or any other format other than individual JPEG files. Files must be uncompressed, not zipped. We also do not currently accept video.
