Agent Branding – Yet another reason to hire a professional photographer…

Scott Hargis, a major name in the world of real estate photography, wrote a post with the rather provocative title:  “The purpose of real estate photos is not to sell property“.  It was a tad misleading, because Scott doesn’t deny at all the ability of a professional photographic  presentation to  […]

Bringing the outside in – sun-drenched rooms can be a challenge…

This is one of those technical blogs that can leave most people’s eyes rolling.  But in the end, its the final effect that counts. Home buyers L-O-V-E  sun-drenched rooms.   But real estate agents often find them a  nightmare to capture on camera.  Either the windows are a blown out […]

Twilight Photography adds a twist to winter real estate photography…
