Dear Real Estate Agents & Home Sellers
Professional Real Estate Photography ServicesIt’s no secret that more and more buyers go to the Internet in search for their next home. As younger generations and first time homeowners have made the switch from the Yellow Pages to the Internet, and their favourite real estate shows are the Property Brothers and Love or List It, you better make an impression on these buyers.
According to a 2013 real estate brokerage Redfin study, professionally photographed homes tend to sell for more money and sell faster than homes listed with point-and-shoot cameras.
Homes also need to impress Internet savvy, baby boomer parents – they’re putting down payments on their kids’ first house. In recent Canadian surveys, as mentioned in the Globe and Mail, as many as one-third of first-time buyers reported that they needed help from their parents, especially in larger cities like Toronto. So the home better present well - especially to mom and dad.
So put your best foot forward with professionally crafted images that make and not break your sale. Don’t worry - you can thank us later.

Construction Contractors' Portfolio PhotographyDIY has its place, but why risk it in photography? We are inundated with images in the digital world, but you will stop and look if the image is well done. Poor lighting, and cropped images of your work just won’t cut it. So don’t ask your son-in law to shoot your work just because he has the latest “pro” camera on the market. The pro is behind the camera.
Your work will get notice if you leave it to us. Our patient, detailed, creative eye will capture your wood finishes, your gorgeous hardwood flooring installation, your granite countertops, or your wainscoting so well, you will trust to leave it to us. We will shoot every last beautiful detail of your craftsmanship to make you proud of your portfolio.
