Real Estate Photography Tips

Here’s my advice!

Either get really good at real estate photography by studying the art and investing in the proper equipment or hire a professional who has already invested hundred of hours in knowing how to produce amazing photos. Don’t end up on this page.

Englishman in Halkidiki

Two years ago I didn’t know what Halkidiki is. Greece was a country I have heard a lot about, a country with ancient history, touristic sights – remarkable and enthralling, and some places too popular for their magnificent and picturesque views and their luxurious resorts. Only then very enthusiastic I booked a one week vacation in a place that seemed all wild and quiet, tranquil and far away from the crowds, a place that is not Cannes or LA, but is unique and inspiring. These all were my expectations and I can honestly state that I was not disappointed at all. When I landed in Thessaloniki, the capital of Northern Greece, there was another side of this impressive country that I noticed.

To be honest I am not one of those people who get too easily attached to things or places and this doesn’t mean that I am not sentimental, but I simply believe that keeping the memories, the sensation and emotions in my mind, in my heart is far better than never leaving that very first home I rented where I could barely walk and find anything, because it was so small and so messy. Change is part of life, the most constant one indeed and I have to admit that I like it – it reminds me that I am alive and it makes me enthusiastic.
