My Photography Career
When I opened my real estate brokerage in 1978, I became serious about becoming a quality photographer.
I knew that high-quality visual images would be essential to successfully marketing my business and my listings. So, I dedicated myself to learning how to become a professional quality photographer. But, at the time, I didn't know an f-stop from and ISO setting (a little "inside photography" humor).
My first camera was a Canon AE-1, a single lens reflex (SLR) camera that shot 35mm film which I wanted to use to photograph my listings, as well as promotional shots for my business. But, I needed to learn how to use it, first.
To become a good quality photographer, I read books, took instruction from professional photographers, and spent countless hours experimenting by taking photos of everything in sight, from every conceivable angle, and under all types of lighting conditions.
To better understand exposure and how to create various types of visual effects, I learned how to develop my own black & white film.
As my real estate photography skills improved, my career expanded into real estate appraisals where I used my photography experience to create professional images that were frequently used as courtroom exhibits to provide judges and juries a better understanding of the properties being appraised.
I continue to expand my knowledge and skills to remain on the cutting edge and to provide high quality photographs and video to every client.
I take great pride in the quality of my work. Consequently, you can be confident that I will provide you the highest level of quality and service that you'll be proud to display.
