The thing I love most about my job is being able to help others tell their story. Typically that comes from helping a homeowner stage their home before a sale but it's most prevalent when I'm taking photos that allow the next owner to envision themselves living there.
My property photos and video tours are like a window into another person's life and they have helped hundreds of families make important home-ownership decisions. Additionally, seeing the happiness my clients get once our project is complete, really makes it all worth it. I love that I get to create such a beautiful moments of joy like helping a family sell/buy their first home.
What types of shoots have you done and how did you make them special?
I have completed a wide variety of different shoots over the years with residential and commercial real estate properties by far being the most frequent. Although the strategy to obtaining great real estate photos does not vary much from property to property, I make each of my clients feel special by making sure to speak with them in details about each property before we get started. This gives me the opportunity to learn more about each home's backstory, it's best features and any specific details the Realtor/Broker wants to highlight.
like weddings, e-commerce product photos and even mega mansions on South Beach. Each time I carefully analyze the end goal of the photos and video we are creating in order to ensure I properly and accurately convey that message. For example if the tone of an event is happy and joyful, I'd make sure to capture the attendees in good spirits with bright lighting meanwhile a luxury home on the beach may be photographed differently in order to accentuate the ambient lighting.
