Real Estate and Architectural Photography

Metin was exceptional from initial contact. I received a response within moments of issuing the first message. Metin availed himself the same day within very short notice and provided pictures of my property and floor plans the following morning. A true expert at his craft, Metin is a craftsman and works effectively to meet the needs of his client. Would work with him again without hesitation. Considering hiring a photographer...without hesitation...reach out to Metin. You won’t be disappointed.

I contacted Metin last week for an urgent photoshoot this week, and he made himself available at very short notice. He was extremely responsive from the start and answered all my questions. The shoot was to take place without my presence (interior design photography at a client's home) and Metin was very receptive to my guidelines and requests. His turnaround time was also extremely fast. In the end, he shot more than we had agreed upon and the photos are exactly what I had asked for! I would definitely recommend working with him and would use his services again if the need arises. Thank you Metin!!

Metin's photos made our condo look better than it really was. My real estate agent sees lots of photos and she described Metin's photos as exquisite! I was really impressed with the video he made. The video clearly showed how the rooms were laid out and highlighted all the best features of the condo. We listed on a Sunday night. By Monday morning, we had 7 requests to view the condo. We took offers on Wednesday and signed a contract on Wednesday night. We spent thousands of dollars on renovations in the condo. We also spent thousands of dollars on staging the condo. All the renovations and staging would have meant nothing without Metin's outstanding photos. I highly recommend him.

I couldn’t believe how quickly they responded and were able to turn around the photos! Not sure if I got lucky, but they completely exceeded my expectations! I had them shoot my condo for rental listing pictures. The photos look great. Good angles, lights were turned on, both interior common areas a d building exterior images were also captured. Metin was punctual and very communicative. Not the cheapest quote I received but competitive and reasonable. The timeliness was also very important so I feel we got our money’s worth. Thank you again!

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    My prices are always reasonable. Our goal is to do the best job at affordable prices. We do not charge extra fees. We do not charge a fee for travel. We do a 15% discount when we do our first business with real estate agents.

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

    Being able to fully understand the wishes of the client is one of the priority issues. we usually prefer to talk to the customer or, if appropriate, meet.

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

    I worked on a news television channel for about 20 years. This extraordinary experience has greatly contributed to the life of photography. A customer left comments like this. "He’s patient and brings your vision to life through his photography."Actually, this is the summary of my working style.
