I am a professional photographer focused on real estate and vacation rental properties.
Photography is at the center of all my marketing.
I want people to say,"what a house" and be motivated enough to take action. Taking outstanding listing pictures is something that comes with experience and requires a certain kind of attention to detail.
When people are searching for homes, they search by price range, location, number of bedrooms, bathrooms etc. But then once they have "the list", the visual piece becomes a larger and more important part of the decision.
Photos are the first impression and can generate interest and excitement, which can lead to showing appointments, offers and a sale.

I have helped many agents with their listing photos and I was the photographer for Deep Creek Lodging for the 6 years. I am an independent contractor and do vacation rental homes photography for Railey Vacations. Photographing homes for sale and homes for rent all have the same goals for sellers and renters - getting interest in their property.

Aerial Pole Photography
There are only a handful of reasons why anybody would erect a 20 foot pole into the sky with an expensive camera attached to the other end.....
For over 5 years I have been using Pole Aerial Photography, also known as PAP. I like thinking outside the box and this is certainly that. I use a technique that currently no one in our area is using.
PAP allows me to get a higher vantage point. Gives my photos a unique and different look. Photos are eye catching as it is a view that most of use are not used to seeing.
Of couse if I really want to do something really cool, I have access to a drone photographer that is one of the area's finest.
My PAP technique is not only used on exteriors, but interiors as well.
Remember, I like to work outside the box. I am doing something no one else is currently doing in Garrett County or other areas of the country.....Indoor Ariel Pole Photography
Photo staging is really important that your photos reflect an "Open House" look
Hot tub covers need to be off and jets on
Fire in fireplace
Pool table covers need to be removed and the balls racked
Fire pits needs to show seating and fire
Lights need to be on
Remove covers from barbecue grills and so on.........
UNIQUE & CREATED BY CAROL
I like to think outside the box.......doing something different that brings attention to my listings and gets the phone to ring.
I took a photo and then inserted a camera and inserted the orginal photo onto the camera viewer!
I bought a photo of a wine and cheese try. I was able to take out the background and then inserted the photo on the wicker table.
Panoramic photos add a new dinamic to photos. They are fun to take and totally unexpected in today's real estate market photos. I shoot many of my exterior shots with a panoramic setting.
These type of photos are also great for large indoor spaces. The nice thing about panoramic photos is that you can crop them and get a completely new look.

Did you know that panoramic photos can be vertical OR horizontal? Anytime photos take on a different look it creates added interest!
