Robert was able to accommodate our schedule and the photos turned out beautifully. In less than 24 hours after the photo shoot, we had professional quality photos of our house.

I need photos of two empty apartments to post for rental. Rob was polite and listened to what I wanted. The pictures were emailed in two days and we're just what I wanted. I would definitely use Rob again!

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    Typically I will have a phone call or text conversation with new clients. Find out what their expectations are. Some clients will meet me at the property (not always). It's a good way to get to know me and see how I work. They can see how I interact with the home owner so they can feel comfortable with me next time to go solo. After the shoot I will get their email address and send over their photos. I will usually follow up with them to see how they liked the photos and if there was any issues.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I was a Realtor for 4 years. I have been around the Realtor market since 2005 helping with advertising and listings. I've seen a lot of bad photos and know what to look for. I have taken classes on photography and have done a lot of training online.
