Hello, and thank you for taking an interest in home photography. I created 1963 Photography to use my passion for architectural photography to help homeowners, builders, and realtors with marketing their homes. With years of experience as a professional vacation home photographer, I have a well honed a skill-set for creating well crafted marketing content that excels at maximizing a homes value.
My home photography experience was jump started after being given the opportunity to travel the country as a vacation home photographer for the vacation home management company, Vacasa. While working in this role I photographed, literally, thousands of homes. These homes widely ranged in size, style, location, and value, giving me a unique variety of situations to learn from. Eventually, I became known for taking really good pictures and began training other photographers for home photography. Before leaving I ended up leading a team of 14 other photographers, located throughout the country, and was able to spearhead many special projects for our marketing department. Some of these projects included implementing a virtual tour program, in which I created a training program for other photographers to follow, as well developing a high-end photography process for luxury homes that utilized supplemental lighting and more refined editing standards.
Traveling from state to state while photographing homes and training new photographers, I cultivated an abundance of experience about the situations, challenges, and opportunities that exist within photographing and marketing homes. Each region and type of home has its own set of standards, and I am lucky to have been able to work on both the photography side, as well as the marketing department side, to learn the various ways that well crafted imagery can be leveraged to help increase home value.
If you’re renting or selling a home, you probably already know that making sure it looks great is important. What most people don’t know, however, is just how much of a difference it makes in your homes value.
1963 Photography specializes in combining classic photography techniques with modern tools and software to craft high engagement imagery, videos, and virtual tours for marketing vacation homes, high end real estate, or professional portfolio and website use. With more and more people shopping online, it truly makes all the difference.
Thank you for taking the time to visit this site, and for taking an interest in professional home photography. Architecture and photography are two of my greatest passions and I love working in a field where I can combine both of these elements.
