Luxury Home with Stunning Mountain Views in Rio Rancho
My photography work often takes me to nearby Rio Rancho, New Mexico, but never before have I seen views of the Sandia Mountains like this from a residential home. Step out into the backyard and there before you, totally unobstructed by anything artificial, loom the Sandias. Look to the north and south and catch a glimpse of the Rio Grande River. Inside this architectural home features those views from all the rooms on the east side of the home, with its open floor plan. Want to own these views? You have a choice of one night or forever as the owner does list this house as an AirBNB, but is also thinking of flat out selling it. If you value views, privacy, and an awesome home office space, this is the property for you! 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
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
Real Estate Photography in Bernalillo, New Mexico
Back on a real estate photography assignment for Susan and Mark Ryerson in Bernalillo, New Mexico, I got to enjoy the Sandia Mountain view the next owner will get to on a daily basis! I can really appreciate a good view and a nice backyard as well. This was a nice straight forward real estate shoot, with the only obstacle being a sleeping cat on one bed, but I told Susan to just market that room as a good place to take a cat nap! Read More
This is a 4K drone video made of a rural land property in Edgewood, New Mexico for an out of state client. He asked for ideas of what to name the property. Since the land rose from east to west, and I was there at sunset, I suggested "Sunset Rise" and he liked it and used it! Read More
