Madison, WI Real Estate Photographer

I’m a Madison Real Estate Photographer with over 30 years of experience in taking photos for print, video and digital usage. Showcasing your property to its highest potential is the most important aspect of hiring a real estate photographer. Aerial drone real estate photography and video walk-throughs are a huge asset to real estate listings, thus I have added them both to my list of services in the Madison, WI area. As an FAA licensed commercial drone photographer with extensive experience in construction site photography, I have experience with the most challenging of sites and conditions. I have one of the best video cameras available today for shooting indoor video, panoramas and timelapse images.
All of my equipment is Nikon professional-grade and DJI professional drone and video equipment. I can provide a copy of my FAA UAS (drone) pilot license as well.

Drone Construction Photography: Aerials

I have two locations: one in Northern Colorado and one in Southern Wisconsin. I’m an FAA licensed drone pilot that is employed by commercial construction companies to do all of their drone photography, including site mapping. Often construction clients request monthly drone photos of their site for progress reports. Flying a drone around construction sites requires a tremendous amount of skill and alertness.

Drone Wedding Photographer:

If you are tired of seeing the same old thing in wedding photos, try a few drone shots of your big event. Just adding a fresh perspective to any event can give it new life and make it uniquely yours.

Agricultural Drone Photographer:

Farmers are constantly monitoring their crops, equipment, buildings and pests. Using a drone to monitor agricultural needs is more accurate, can get into areas without damage that large equipment would cause and can get into areas a person cannot. Drones are used extensively in big agriculture to inspect tall buildings, check for pest infestations, monitor flooding, drought or other damage, for spraying (requires special drone equipment), and even checking up on livestock.

Gorgeous Winter Wedding Photography

You may think winter is definitely not the time to do wedding photos. However, I have couples specifically ask for winter wedding shots. Why? Because they are very unique and flattering.

Why Winter Weddings have an Advantage:

• You get to use really cool Christmas colors in your wedding colors. Like reds and greens.

• You can wear cool-looking shawls, furs and hats with your gown for outdoor shots.

• Availability of a photographer is much easier than during the peak wedding season which is May through September.

And what if you hate the cold? Here’s a free tip if you are planning winter outdoor wedding shots. Plan it out with your photographer in advance. That way you will only be spending a very short time actually standing out in the cold. An experienced winter wedding photographer will know exactly what to plan for, how to plan for it and how to make you the most comfortable for those beautiful winter bride shots.

Another free tip if you are planning a winter wedding: Take advantage of using bright reds and greens to really make your photos pop! Every season has its color palate. Work with it and your photos will be stunning. And why not take advantage of the one time you can get away with certain colors for a certain season instead of the same old brides and bridesmaid colors everyone else is using in the spring.

Venues are much cheaper and easier to book for your wedding reception and service as well. So don’t shy away from the thought of a winter wedding. I will work with you to ensure you won’t regret a single moment of it. And when you look back at the photos and all of your friends and family are in awe, you will know it was all worth it! Let’s talk about your plans ahead of time to make everything just perfect. 608-501-3155.

When you just want to record your work for any reason, I have specific construction site photography experience. I even have my own hardhat, Class 2 hi-vis safety vest, and safety glasses.

I know what you are looking for in construction photography because I’ve also owned a construction business and worked for a commercial construction company as their Marketing Communications Expert. I don’t just take “pretty” pictures (which are the best for marketing materials), but also the necessary photos of MEP, preconstruction site planning shots, insurance photos, training photos and video, site logistics and anything else construction photography related.

Drone photography of construction sites is increasingly popular. Nothing beats aerial shots of large construction sites prior to building or during any phase of the construction process. Clients love drone shots of their buildings and they look very professional for a construction company to offer to a client.

The commercial construction company I was an employee of liked to give project books (photo books) to most of their clients. They were like a timeline of the project from groundbreaking ceremonies to the finished walk-through. And clients loved them.

Don’t Forget About A Prom Photographer

It’s not as expensive as you may think. I offer prom packages for as little as $99. As long as you went through all the trouble to buy the dress or rent the tux, you may as well get something more out of it.

Prom photos can double as Senior photos. As long as you are all gussied up, why not?

Photographers also tend to book up quickly for prom photo and senior photo time. So reserving a studio session in advance is a very good idea.

$45 deposit is required. Non-refundable after 24 hours.

Basic Prom Photo Package: $99 (this is probably cheaper than the dress).

  • 1 Hour Photo Session at my indoor or outdoor studio
  • 1 8×10 print. Additional prints available, such as 5×7 or wallet size,  just ask for prices.

Time to Book Wedding Photographer for Spring

Booking a Wedding Photographer.

No kidding. Most wedding photographers are booked at least 6 months in advance. So if you get engaged for Christmas, or are planning a spring wedding, make sure to allow enough time to book your photographer. Start booking in the fall and early winter months if you are planning a spring wedding.

Wedding planning is stressful enough, don’t blow the entire special day by not having a professional photographer booked far enough in advance. Also consider where you want your wedding photos taken. The traditional church and reception hall photos leave a lot to be desired. The best wedding shots are usually taken in a private photography session in a location of your choice, or, If you happen to be lucky enough to find a photographer like myself who has their own beautiful outdoor photo studio, it is much easier to book the location in advance. Usually, the most popular public places are booked a year in advance for all kinds of things such as parties, family reunions, business meetings etc., which makes it so difficult to reserve their space.
