A few weeks ago I was contacted by a past client, Kip Klayton of Kip Klayton Architects, asking me to photograph his current office as he is putting it up for sale. It’s a cool historic building in Downtown Orange. This place is wide open – a bit challenging to photograph. I spent the better half of a day creating some of these images. More images after the jump! Enjoy!
I had the opportunity to shoot some twilight photos at this really cool place in Dana Point. It was a pretty rough week since I came down with the flu on Monday. Luckily this place helped me bounce out of it since it’s not everyday you get to shoot such a unique place like this. Have a look at some of the photos in the full post.
I got to shoot this awesome home right on the canal on Balboa Island in Newport Beach. This place has a ton of character and charm. It was a really fun shoot! Have a look at some more of the final images on the full post.
At the beginning of the year I was contacted by the company I use to send out my mass emails. They wanted to interview me and my business to get an insight as to what sets me apart from my competition and how I utilize their services. It’s a great way to get to know me a little bit if you already don’t. Have a look at the video above and hit me up in the comments if you have any questions of your own!
I had the opportunity to shoot a home for Auction.com in Corona del Mar last week. It was an awesome two hours and then back later that day to do twilight shots! This home is more of a “Soft Modern” style. Nice clean lines with lots of warm wood throughout. It was a welcomed change from the usual stuff I get to shoot. Have a look at the full post for some more images!
What a challenge!!! This was one of the more difficult homes I’ve shot. When I first arrived I was met with bright windows and a dark wood interior. After fighting with the extremely difficult dynamic range in each photograph, I ended up with some great shots! I got to come back later in the day to get some twilight and epic view shots. Be sure to read the full post to see some more of the final images.
Remember this shot from last week? This is the follow up post with the final images! It was a fun and challenging day and night, but in the end the agent was pleased. He had a specific look he wanted and it took some extra time on my part to get the right compositions and lighting. Have a look at the full post to see more of the final images.
At first glance, this home wouldn’t look like anything special. The problem being – sub par photography. The listing agent had this home photographed by a “professional photographer”, I use that term loosely, to photograph her new 6 million dollar listing in Corona del Mar. Needless to say she was far from impressed with the results. After shelling out some decent cash for not so decent photos, she was a little miffed. I got the call to come and do a re-shoot and we quickly scheduled a time. I did a few twilight shots and came back the next morning to finish off the interior. I think the photos speak for themselves as the listing agent and her partner could barely recognize that it was the same property. Check the full post for the rest of the story.
Have a look at this 7300 sqft Corona del Mar home listed by Suzie Malerbe. This one was a bit of challenge, with it’s dark shinny surfaces and bright exterior light – always makes for a good time trying to set up lights! I got it done none the less and they turned out well.
I had to reshoot this home for Suzie since she wasn’t happy with what the previous photographer had provided her. Which goes to show that not all “professional photographers” can shoot real estate. Hire the right guy for the right job!
Her and her partner were pleased in the end with my photos, which makes me happy :-). Be sure to read the full post to see some more shots!
