Affordable Real Estate Photography

A good friend of ours, Preston Dial, has been a professional photographer for over 4 decades, but medical issues have severely limited his ability to use one hand, which has meant that he can no longer do most of what he did for a living. Photography is his passion, though, not just his livelihood, so he turned his attention, and his incredible talents, to real estate photography, where he can take as long as needed to set up a shot and not have to worry about the subject going off to do something else!

Few home sellers, or even real estate professionals, give much thought to how much of an impression the pictures of a home for sale make on a buyer, but in actuality, many times the prospective buyer makes a decision on which house to look at based on how it appears online, and may never even see it in person if it doesn’t look good enough! A home that’s up for sale may be a real beauty, but if “cell phone snaps” are all a buyer sees, that home may never draw the buyer to see it in person.

So, we built this WordPress site for Preston to use as a ‘display case’ for examples of his work. And amazing work it is, too. Check out the full site at: And share Preston and his talent with anyone you know who wants to get the most value when selling a home!

Casey Cooper, USA Mortgage

Stills can’t capture the beautiful parallax effects of this website we built for Casey Cooper, a mortgage banker with USA Mortgage.  As with all of their lenders, Casey was given a free corporate website when hired — and as you can probably imagine, that cookie-cutter corporate template left MUCH to be desired. (It even uses Flash!) Some of the folks there have wised up and established their own web presence, and Casey asked us to do the same for him, even giving us some fellow co-workers’ sites to use as guideline examples.

Well, short story long, Casey was definitely not expecting the final result to be what it was!  We can safely say we blew his mind with the site we gave him. After all, mortgage loans aren’t exactly the stuff of which dreams (and dreamy websites) are made of.  Our thought process on this site, however, was to play up the “dream home” aspect of getting the right mortgage loan to buy that house you always wanted.  And, of course, the right mortgage loan can only be arranged by the right mortgage lender!  (P.S. That would be Casey.)
