Real Estate and For Hire Photography
I started around 2002 shooting for Keller Williams and several other real estate folks....Also hotel websites, brochures and the likes. At the same time I was doing weddings, portraits and working for United Way. As I became busier I had to back off the sparse and random real estate commissions. I was also shooting for free at my day job Park Ridge Hospital doing directories and wall art. At the same time supplying The Adventist Health System's intranet based website images and a couple calendars which were national. I shot for the Park Ridge Foundation fund raisers and golf tournaments.
The United Way was also a huge national campaign, which include tons of printed materials, billboards and television stills. In 2006 my son and I were commissioned by Samax Motorsports from Fort Lauderdale to shoot locally at Virginia International Raceway and Road Atlanta. This led to several motorsports shoot and took me to Daytona and the Rolex 24 Hours and Petit LeMans circuit.
It was a busy time for me working a 40+ hour a week day job and shooting portraits, weddings and real estate. It was a world of schedules, travel and timing craziness. While I continued to do some real estate commissions on and off for several reality companies, for the most part I stopped contracting with them.
Some folks recently are using drones for real estate work and video has taken off. I saw one drone flyer who actually flies a drone with a Go Pro around inside a house! Very cool...
So finally allot has changed as the digital photo age progresses. Where will it all be in the near future? Only time will tell!
Happy shooting and thanks for stopping by. Now booking for spring workshops.
