"Over the years, I learned what worked best for me and the client."
Photographer, Washington state
I have a real estate photography business that has been in business now for almost 15 years. It all started when I was a realtor working for a local company in the area. I had been a photographer for a few years prior to this and did mostly landscape type photography. A friend in the office asked me to take some photos of his new property that he was listing and I jumped at the chance.
I hadn’t had much if any experience on doing interior style photography let alone the lighting techniques involved so I winged it. The camera that I used was one of the first digital DSLR’s available and wasn’t much, but it did the job and I was able to do a relatively satisfactory job for him. From that point on, I started promoting myself and getting referrals from realtors that over time helped build the business that I have today.
I made some mistakes along the way which helped me evolve. I started learning different techniques and software tools that helped in my workflow. Over the years, I learned what worked best for me and the client.
I now have a business that incorporates, stills, video, and aerial photography. I have not forgotten about the landscape photography and still go out when time allows to get those beautiful mountain and scenery type shots. I have had many comments to the effect that I can take an ordinary scene and make something beautiful out of it.
