This is the first of what I hope will be many. Ron Goyette Photography is now offering property and real estate photography!
Coming from a portrait and head shot photography background, property and real estate has proven itself to be a steep learning curve. I've always believed that getting people to be comfortable and natural in front of the camera was the only difficult aspect of photography. As it turns out, conveying the feeling that you get standing inside of a space is equally difficult. While I never stop learning and honing my craft, I am excited that the results I am getting at this point give me confidence to offer this as a service. My warmest aloha to Zee Mahan who graciously opened the door for me on a new venture.
My first job: this 1000 sqft., 2 Bed, 2 Bath condo close to the shops and beaches of Kaanapali, HI. While this is not mansion or a fancy custom one-off design, it is in a pretty sweet location.
One of the challenges in photographing real estate of this size is representing the space without just pulling back into the furthest corner of the room and slapping on the widest lens available. On paper, 1000 sqft sounds compact; however, this property does feel very open and large when you are in it. My objective was to convey that feeling without the images being misleading.
I am planning on offering a number of different services to the property and real estate market in addition to static photography, including virtual tours and video walking tours. There is an example of a single room virtual tour for this property below, or by clicking here. Video is a whole other beast that I'm not ready to showcase just yet. Stay tuned.

And now without further adieu, The images!
