Let’s Talk About Work

Work is going well, I am happy to report. I revamped my workflow over the Winter and it seems to be holding up well, even during busy periods. Especially, busy periods!

New Workflow

Holy moly! I’m a picture making machine in the afternoons. That’s how I like my life. Shooting mornings into early afternoon and home processing pics by 2pm. Done by 4pm. Most days, anyway. I have it down to a routine. Biggest issues are logistics. I average 1.5 hours – 2 hours of drive time a day and that’s not leaving the Vegas Valley.

I’m trying a more fluid approach to my scheduling this year. Take ’em as they come, instead of trying route my days. For the most part it works well, even the long driving days. I haven’t really seen a huge increase in mileage compared to last year. Most of what I get are easy 1,700 sqft- 2,500 sqft houses. Last week I had a 3,500 sqft house and 4,000 something sqft house and made it through those just fine.

Las Vegas Real Estate Photographer.

Desert Twilight Photos | Las Vegas, NV

I love my job, even when I hate my job. Might not make sense, but it’s the truth. The truth doesn’t make sense in these times, anyway. Real estate photography is my job and it’s a good work when you can get it. I’ve been shooting houses in Las Vegas for two years now. I started shooting real estate 8 years ago in Silicon Valley. I’ve renewed my love for my job this past Winter. The last few months I shot houses in California I felt like I do now. I was finally getting California real estate photography. After shooting there 5 years, I finally came to an understanding with the working mechanisms of shooting a house right and presentation. That’s the secret. Presentation. I’m a fairly good photographer. I don’t mean to doubt my ability, I’m always learning. Some things I learn faster than others. Over the past two years I’ve broken down my workflow and rebuilt a stronger, more efficient workflow each time. I’ve been fortunate enough to have a captive audience to learn and experiment with. Las Vegas real estate isn’t San Francisco Bay Area real estate. Las Vegas real estate is so much better. Now that …

E Desert Inn | Las Vegas

I’ve been in Las Vegas for 2 years. I love it more every day. It’s just such an interesting place to live. Sometimes I feel like I’m walking in a different time. I shot a condo in this complex this past week. The condo was a little gloomy, but look at that courtyard! Saying it’s seen better days is an understatement. The building was built in 1963 and is located just a half block from the strip. I can just imagine rolling up in a Chevy Convertible and parking under the carport. The pool teaming with people drinking cocktails and smoking Pall Malls. Bebop music playing from one of the open doors of an apartment. I can almost taste the bourbon! That’s why I like it so much here in Vegas. You can get transported back in time at any moment. I hadn’t done much “research” on this building before I arrived. But when I was led through that courtyard for the 1st time, wow! I told the assistant that met me there that I’d do the courtyard last. I wanted to take my time with it. Well, I took maybe 10 minutes and was able to get these shots. …
