Behind The Scenes Photos, Real Estate Photography

Behind The Scenes (BTS) photos from my Real Estate Photography gigs.   Often times, the realtor is speaking on camera, doing an intro for his/her video tour that I produce (see an example here). Tom shooting his intro for a house in Boulder   This job takes a lot of ‘stuff’    My son (above) helping me on a shoot   Video shoot (above) with Shawna, and some lighting help from a reflector and a willing assistant!  

Twilight and Dusk Architecture and Home Photos

A collection of my favorite twilight/dusk photos of homes and other interesting buildings. I love photographing buildings during ‘Golden Hour’ and have found that both HDR and Long Exposures can produce great results.     Many of these shots are of the interesting buildings in and around the Town of Erie.   Our beautiful library, community center and more! ” order_by=”sortorder” order_direction=”ASC” returns=”included” maximum_entity_count=”500″]The ‘Golden Hour’ is truly magic!

Why I don’t like 3d Virtual Tours

I know that 3D tours for Real Estate have become all the rage with some realtors, and I can see why.   It’s flashy, techy, a little (ok, a lot) gimmicky on some levels, and a tool that can be used to easily ‘wow’ your clients with. The few things I LIKE about the tours, like Matterport, are, assuming they are working perfectly on your device, is that they do offer a way to see every single aspect of the home, and they do provide some entertainment value. ***This can backfire though.  I have heard realtors say that seeing every…

My Equipment for Real Estate Photography

I have been fortunate to amass some of the greatest ‘toys’ out there for my real estate photography ‘career.’  I say that in quotes as I find it hard to think of it as work, since I enjoy it so much! I truly have some of the finest gear available for the job.  Here are some of the items I use: Canon 5DS-R This is almost a medium-format camera, and at this time is the highest megapixel DSLR you can buy.   The resolution is insane.    When I deliver a photo to you using this camera, I encourage you to…

Erie, Colorado Aerial Photos

I was wondering just how high my Autel Robotics X-Star Premium drone could fly, so I took it off of ‘beginners mode’ this weekend (beginners mode restricts how high it can go, and how far).     I took my son down to the park in Erie, Colorado, just off of Briggs Street.  It was a typical cloudy, spring day with a little bit of a breeze. I launched the drone straight up from the park, and it just kept going…going…going. I finally stopped, since I was having trouble seeing the drone so high up.  Fortunately the drone comes with…

Sedona Marathon February 2017 – DONE!

Joelle and I completed the Sedona Marathon this month!  It was a lot more challenging than I expected – very hilly, and a very warm day for February, but the scenery took our minds off of it. There were a few thousand people doing all of the races, 10k, 1/2 etc.  But only a very small handful relatively did the full.   We were among the few!

Erie, Colorado King Soopers Grand Opening – Photo Day!

I was asked to take part in the grand opening of a massive new King Soopers store in Erie, Colorado. It is truly massive. The Town of Erie asked me to take photos of the grand opening, including a group photo of many of the main people involved – from the Town of Erie, to construction folks, and the like. I had imagined a group shot of maybe 10-20 people, but it was over 100.   That’s a difficult group shot to take for sure.    Largest one I have ever done. First, here is a link to the news article in…
