Real Estate Photos And Video Tours
All real estate still photos are taken on a professional camera with a professional wide angle lens. All post editing is done in Lightroom and exported to MLS specifications. For every listing we shoot as many shoots as we need to to cover the entire property and allow you to choose the ones you want for the listing.
Our HDR photos reveal a clear, bright, and natural look that will engage buys. We use all natural light to aluminate the shot and balance the highlights and shadows. Our process eliminates those dark shadows and blown out windows in nearly every shot. The results are crystal clear, wide angle images showing property in the absolute best possible way. See below samples.
