I am a Nashville TN based photographer and I shoot mainly real estate and product photography.
Real estate wasn't something I initially set out to do. I started shooting for families and weddings. Both are fun and challenging and give the opportunity for great creative images, but after shooting a few houses I fell for real estate. I try to take photos from an architectural point of view, which is capturing the design or craftsmanship of the home. Making any home, from a small house to a multi-million dollar home, look like a piece of art and making someone want to make it their home is a huge feat. I've had several real estate agents tell me, that because of the provided photos they sold their listing in record time.
Shooting product photography makes up the other half of what I do, and it's really not that different from real estate photography. Commercial photography is making art of a product to enhance it so that the image alone sells it to the consumer, and that is a huge power. I've shot items from paper to metal all with the intent to provide an image that sells the product and makes the consumer want to have that item. I can shoot isolated images on one color to a staged shoot showcasing the product.
Above all else, photography for me is fun, always challenging and a creative outlet for me to take ideas from conept to finish
I'm always learning of ways to better myself and figure out ways to make my images stand out amongst the pack.
