(Commercial Real Estate Photography) – This past November I traveled to Texas to photograph 20 properties for a client. I drove about 1100 miles in two and a half days driving from Houston to Dallas to San Antonio and back to Houston. The days were long and I slept like a log when I got home, but I actually enjoy doing this kind of work. I’m at the mercy of the weather, but otherwise I have control over the pace and I can usually just keep shooting until I’m certain that I have the shots that I need. Some properties are easy and don’t take too long and others are more complicated (sun location, people, cars, etc.). I love not feeling rushed. And I enjoy the several days of editing that I have to do when I get home.
The week after I arrived home from Texas I headed off in my car with my trusty step-ladder to photograph two properties in LaGrange and Albany, GA and one in Jacksonville, FL. I returned home two days before Thanksgiving and slept (driving always makes me tired)!
Below are some of my favorite shots (with notes in the captions). I have now photographed 53 properties in nine states for this particular client! Hopefully I’ll be adding more states and properties to that count this year!
