Using the sunset for commercial photography in ABQ
On a warm weekday evening in Albuquerque, New Mexico, I took my camera and tripod to The View ABQ apartment complex to make sunset HDR real estate photos, as well interior photos. This place certainly lives up to its name and with dramatic clouds and a bright sunset, I was given ample material to photograph and deliver to the client! Read More
All challenges in one real estate shoot & flight!
Almost every real estate photo and drone shoot in New Mexico has its challenges. And then sometimes a property has pretty much every challenge possible! That is the case with this home in Placitas, New Mexico being listed by Mark & Susan Ryerson. The first challenge as you can see from the above photo is that the front of the house is largely blocked by trees and it is up on a hill, so getting a direct front view shot was not really possible, not even with the drone. The interior had unique architecture, but somewhat small rooms with large furniture in them. Even using a 15mm lens I had to really search for angles I liked for the living room in particular. Then flying the drone itself, I never had a signal issue between the remote control and the drone until this flight, likely due to the massive power lines right behind the house, which also prevented flying from that direction. Then there was wind from being so close to the mountains and the aforementioned trees all around the house! Overall, this was one of the most challenging real estate shoots and drone flights I have ever done in the Albuquerque area. Thank you to Mark & Susan for their great help as they always provide on this shoot and flight! Read More
Get a sunroom!
This near Rio Rancho but actually still Albuquerque, New Mexico residential real estate property was actually the second property shoot of the day I did for Mark & Susan Ryerson. They are my favorite real estate agent clients to shoot for because they make shoots fun! I usually work with them on luxury real estate properties, like this one that sold in less than one week because they are great agents, and maybe also the professional photos and 4K drone video I made of the property, so there is no drone video of this property, but there are aerial drone photos. This property is quite unique I think because it has a sunroom! How many homes are you going to find in New Mexico with a sunroom like this? Read More
8325 Rio Grande Blvd NW Luxury Real Estate Horse Property
This was my second luxury real estate shoot for Mark & Susan Ryerson, and my fourth overall property I have photographed for them in Albuquerque, New Mexico. They are not just real estate agents on these shoots, they are photo assistants and drone visual observers making these photos and the video a true team effort on our part. That is why I recommend them as real estate agents. They are a dynamic husband and wife duo that are extremely professional and also very fun to be around Read More
100 year old tree, fish pond, skylights!
Back out on a real estate photography assignment for Mark & Susan Ryerson in Albuquerque, New Mexico, who had another unique property for me. I really enjoyed shooting 374 Canon Madera Drive for them, an expansive luxury listing hidden in the east mountains. This property, 3009 Franciscan St NE, was closer to home though no usual Graceland Acres property. From the brick driveway, to 100 year old tree in the front yard tended to by someone from UNM no less, to the fish pond in the back, you can actually explore this city lot and find mystery. Inside the rooms feature multi-sided shapes, a walk right through from front door to back door flow, and a skylight filled master bath! Read More
Coralee is a real estate agent that really cares!
I had the pleasure of working with a new real estate agent, Coralee Quintana, photographing a residential real estate listing for her in Rio Rancho, New Mexico. We met at an Albuquerque Hispano Chamber of Commerce ambassador meeting. At the listing she was very helpful getting last minute things in order for me to photograph the exteriors first, and then the interiors. She went above and beyond to insure the best results and really helped out the home owner as well. I did my part looking for creative, as well as the traditional, interior photography angles and composition. Check out the photo below using the bed in the foreground, not the typical bedroom real estate photo! Read More
374 Canon Madera Drive Luxury Real Estate Listing
It is my goal to be the best luxury real estate photographer and drone pilot in the Albuquerque, New Mexico area, and really the entire state. I continued this pursuit working for Mark & Susan Ryerson on this unique property nestled on the east side of the Sandia Mountains in the Sandia Crest area. This property was photographed and listed previously and did not sell, in part due to the below average quality of the photographs. Mark and Susan told me upon seeing the photos that this listing now looks like the $500k+ home it is! I could not receive a better compliment from a client. I once again used the flambient technique for interiors and realistic HDR for exteriors. For information about buying this property, view the realtor.com listing. Read More
