I have used Valerie for several of my listings and she always delivers amazing photos that perfectly showcase the homes. My clients rave about the way their home is presented and many of the buyers have also commented on how well the photos have represented the home. She is professional, always prompt, accommodating and has gone above and beyond to meet my requests. You will be impressed if you hire her. I strongly recommend that you do!Feb 1, 2015Verified

Q & A
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?My photography and Photoshop education is on-going and never-ending. I'm a member of the National Association of Photoshop Professionals (NAPP), Professional Photographers of America (PPA) and Real Estate Photographers of America & International (REPAI). I recently (December 2015) passed the exam to become an Adobe Certified Expert in Lightroom 5 and am studying to become an Adobe Certified Expert in Photoshop CC.
- How did you get started doing this type of work?I considered studying architecture when I was in school. I thought about it again a few years later when I was considering grad school. I have always liked buildings. I like the way one space can feel inviting and warm and another can feel hollow and cold, all because of the colors and proportions and layout. As my photography hobby grew I discovered that I loved the geometry of architectural photography. And I work well alone - it's peaceful. So real estate and architectural photography were natural choices for me.
- What types of customers have you worked with?At the request of clients I have photographed the interiors and exteriors of single-family homes, apartment complexes and the surrounding amenities, a medical complex, a movie theater, a fitness center and a few other smaller commercial buildings.
