I photographed Penny’s husband last year for a business portrait and they were so happy that they hired me to photograph their family at Paci Restaurant in Southport. I wanted to show this because I was on site maybe a half hour and it didn’t take long to get the images needed to make the client happy. Granted it was a Sunday and there was a storm outside, but I learned at a young age to take the world as I find it.

I always try to get a shot of everyone….here it is.

Objective. To show newly landscaped backyard with an appealing fall setting. My job was to shoot with natural light at a time where the light is soft and not too harsh. Grab vignettes of details and overall look of the landscaping. I do like shooting these types of jobs at twilight to add drama, but I think with this soft light,it really came out nice.

High in the mountains of Monroe Connecticut is a real nice park called Webb Mountain.It is here that I was the behind the scenes photographer for Swiss Army. The company. My job was to photograph all of the products that were being taped for video commercials. There were plenty of products that were not in the commercial but I photographed anyway.

I get asked to photograph many different things. That is why I enjoy being a photographer. One day I am shooting hairbrushes, the next day I am shooting aerials with a drone, then the next day bones and treats for Earth Animal. Every day is a different shoot. One of the facets of my business is corporate branding photography. I really appreciate photographing people. To make people feel at ease in front of the camera, you have to be a good listener and you have to interact naturally with them.

If I do photograph for you, you will notice that I am a talker and a good listener. I may never shut up, but I will make you feel at ease and get the images needed to showcase your business.

The images below are from a recent shoot I did for a local financial company.

I like the background here.
Different backgrounds offer different looks.

With today’s competitive real estate market it is always nice to have an “ace in your hand.” One of these is virtual staging. It is very simple.I photograph a vacant room then I create furniture and other “home goods” to make this space look more appealing. This makes it easier for the client to visualize what their new home could look like.

My job as a photographer is to show beautiful images so that the client will click on and look at the whole listing. Too many times you see underexposed, out of focus images online. Our true value is showing clean crisp interiors, dramatic drone shots and smooth looking videos.

I think the only draw back to having virtual staging is that you have to show the client an empty house. But at least you are getting them to the door. This will not replace staging, it will only give the realtor another tool to help sell an empty home.
