A blog or two ago I mentioned that I had shot the most expensive property I’ve ever shot. This was a fantastic property to say the least. 17 acres, 4 buildings including a twin guest house, a separate barn/garage and a clock tower and office building. While shooting I found out that this house wasn’t even the original home for the property. It was the stables for the original 250 acre Adrossan farm. It was gorgeous. Meticulously landscaped and cared for. Something else I found out while I was there was that the house had been shot several years ago for Architectural Digest. No pressure. Right? Here’s a little comparison for you. The AD shoot took three days and as the owner put it “An army of people.” I can only imagine how many people were there. Photographer, assistant(s), set dresser(s), producer, and probably a couple of people just to move furniture around. I’m also imaging that there was a truck load of gear as well. Not to mention the editor and post person and post supervisor for after the shoot. My shoot for the realtor…….just 4 and a half hours (plus an additional hour for the night shots) by myself with the realtor. I used one Speedlight and a Gary Fong Lightsphere. No pressure. Riiiiiiiight. Well as someone once said a picture is worth a thousand words………so here’s a few thousand for you to digest.
