COMMERCIAL PHOTOGRAPHY

I absolutely LOVE photographing properties or businesses to help them with advertising. A perfect example is a sweet couple I met in Dewey OK. This man has spent 30 years building a actual TOWN called "PRAIRIE SONG". Right now he offers school tours, weddings, and family reunions. However, there are very few images of this amazing place. I took over 300 images trying to show all the work he has put into it. How can he get the word out unless people see it? That is what I do. I see it, I capture it, and I share it. (click on image to see more)

Are you ready for a new look? Professional HEADSHOTS available NOW!

CHRISTINA WOODS PHOTOGRAPHY - HEADSHOTS  starting at $125

It is no secret that 80% of home buyers begin their search online, so a real estate agent’s online presence is crucial with the headshot playing the most important role.  A professional photograph speaks volumes to potential clients.  They are seeking to hire a real estate agent who conveys trust, honesty and integrity, and your appearance on your business cards, website, and social media sites is the first impression you give them.  Not to mention, buyers and sellers encounter a number of real estate agents daily, whether it’s through agent networking, attending open houses or receiving agent marketing material.

Studies show that with the right photograph, an agent can actually win business.  Your headshot should be used as a marketing tool to brand yourself, attract clients and help you stay memorable in this competitive industry.  An unflattering or unprofessional headshot can, in turn, hinder your business and cause you to lose potential clients to your competitors.

5 Things Your Real Estate Photographer Wish You Knew

I had to steal this article.. LOVE IT, LOVE IT, LOVE IT!! And SO TRUE.

Folks, it’s 2016. Contrary to what you might have heard, a buyer’s first impression is no longer that special moment when they first pull up to check out your curb appeal. In fact, more often than not, they’ve already checked out your place from front to back online—and for all you know, they may have decided to cruise right by.

Most buyers spend weeks stalking perusing online listings, making Pinterest dream boards, texting must-see homes to their agent, and, well, judging.

And what is the key difference between a home deemed a HILF (home I’d like to finance) and one doomed to be mocked on social media?Photos.

Photos are the curb appeal of the digital age, and those shots have to be good. Freaking out? Don’t. Check out these pro secrets instead.

1. It doesn’t matter how many megapixels your (or your agent’s) smartphone has

To get a good photo, you need the right equipment, including a high-end camera and some full-featured editing software.

The bigger sensors of a professional-grade camera capture more information, which results in richer, more flattering photographs. Part of that is the technique: With HDR (high dynamic range mode), the camera takes multiple exposures to maximize the quality of the final photo. Yes, you can do HDR with your cell phone, but trust us—it’s not as good. And the right editing program such as Photoshop will make those photos look their very best.

Unless you already have the equipment—and the know-how—it might be more prudent to hire a pro.

2. Your knickknacks aren’t photogenic

Prospective buyers don’t give a hoot about your knickknacks

Hide yo’ throw pillows and hide yo’ ceramic pigs. All those knickknacks that make your house feel homey (to you, anyway) won’t translate well online.

“Photos tend to look best with the least amount of stuff as possible,” says Darryl Glade, CEO of IMOTO, a professional real estate photography company in New Orleans, LA.

Aim to store away everything personal (even wall art) before your photo shoot—don’t forget the small kitchen appliances and, yes, your shampoo. You want your house to convey a model home feel.

Keep the tchotchkeshidden, please.

 

 

3. Dirt really shows

HD cameras pick up all the little stains you’ll try to hide

HDR photos are a blessing and a curse. On the one hand, the camera captures everything. On the other hand, the camera captures everything.

A missed stain on the kitchen floor, dust on the mantel, slight discoloration in the carpet—it’s all going to show in the photos. Happily, a pro can edit most of those things out, but your house needs to be as clean as possible before the shoot.

Seriously, we want to be able to eat off those floors, soldier.

4. It isn’t just the weather on the big day that matters

You’ve had the foresight to check the weather: clear skies on the day of your shoot. But what about the day before?

“If your yard maintenance crew comes Monday, and there is a storm Monday night, maybe it is a good idea to reschedule your Tuesday photos so that the yard is in perfect condition for the shoot,” Glade says.

Wait, is there a house through all that fog?

5. Little things can make—or break—the photo

The ceramic pig is in the closet, the house is spotless, and there hasn’t been a windy day in weeks, so you’re ready to go, right?

Not so fast. The day of your shoot, do a final sweep and look for anything you might have missed.

“During your run-through, pay extra attention to blinds, curtains, bedspreads, and shower curtains, making sure they are in place and smooth,” Glade says.

And don’t forget the bathroom. “Make sure the toilet lids are closed. Refresh the toilet paper rolls,” he says. “These little things can make a big difference!”

Back in the saddle again..

For as long as I remember I have been taking pictures

Not just with a camera, but in my mind. I see such beauty in everything. Life is so busy and people just seem to rush by, eyes closed. The things that happened yesterday, a month ago, a year ago.. is a distant memory. What's more precious in your life than your experiences with those that you love?

Capture it.

You little ones grow so much every year. Time goes so fast. From newborn cries, first steps, to first days at school, to driving a car, to graduation, marriage,..  Every year is another milestone.

Capture it.

Why is all of this beauty around if nobody sees it? Saves it?

Capture it.

I'm ready to take this passion and get back into what I love. Day to day.. client to client. Project to project. Here we go.
