Professional head shots for Realtors

Here are some recent professional head shots for Ellen Morgan, real estate broker for Allen Tate Company's Lake Norman office. Ellen wanted to have the lake in the background to represent her specialty in the local market, and what a great idea! Every final head shot I deliver comes with a a black and white version. In this case, I think the color version is the winner. If you're interested in buying or selling real estate in the Lake Norman area, call Ellen at 704.534.0295 or find her @ellenmorganrealestate. #realestate #headshots #professionalheadshots #realestatephotography #realestatephotos #LakeNorman #AllenTate

Yes, we do virtual tours!

What's the difference between a video and a virtual tour? The biggest distinction is that a virtual tour is comprised of still shots. And since the shots have already been taken, the cost is lower that adding a video service to the mix. Although real estate marketing trends are moving in the direction of video and 3D tours, I still get a number of requests for virtual tours. And although I'm biased, I think we do a great job with them. First, we start with high quality pictures. We also have a tour service that provides an almost unlimited number of custom options for your tour. We can add your professional floor plan and make it interactive, and mark where a buyer would stand in the home as

North facing properties

Ever wonder what to do with a north facing property that gets little to no sun on the front elevation? Call a professional photographer that knows what she's doing! Here are before and after pictures of a home in the Lake Norman area. The first photo was taken by cell phone by the customer in the late morning. The other photos were taken by me during a similar time of day, using shooting and post processing techniques that more accurately portray the home, and show it's true beauty. Photos of this home were taken for Triangle Brick Company, which supplied the high quality brick to the builder. #builders #builder #newhome #newconstruction #realestatephotography #realestatephotos #builderphoto

Dining Room Makeover

I was excited to photograph this dining room for Decorating Den interior designer, Valery Huffenus. As I entered the room for the first time, I immediately had a sense of that the space was both calm and sophisticated, and I knew the room would be very photogenic. Here's how Valery describes this project: "This dining room began with with white wainscoting, metallic grasscloth walls and a dated chandelier. It had a dark, dated, heavy feel to it. The desired transformation for the dining room was to turn it into an updated, light, bright and functional space.
