#TBT to that time I got the privilege to photograph this beautiful @madison.taylor.inc custom home for the @thechriskeleherteam in 2017 😍. #realestate #realestatephotography #customhome #modernhome #collingwoodrealestatephotographer #collingwoodrealestate #interiordesign #architecturephotography
Yes I'm still here! Had a bit of a hiatus from insta over the holidays partly to welcome this lil guy to the fam. 👶🏻👨‍👩‍👦‍👦Introducing the future chief operations officer of Gardiner Media Megacorp. Lol.  For this newborn session, I helped @stephanieadventures set up the lighting and then she snapped away, with a few graphic additions by yours truly. #newbaby #newbornphotography #newbornsession #collingwoodphotographer #babyannouncement #imstillhere #christmasbaby #almost
One of my favourite angles for this property I photographed earlier this month with the talented @schwartzandkointeriordesign near @alpineskiclub.  Most of my real estate clients aren't interested in vertical compositions which makes them that much more satisfying when I do get to shoot them. (This is still cropped - instagram won't let me show you the whole thing 😔) #chaletstyle #collingwoodphotographer #collingwoodontario #collingwoodhomes #interiordesign #skichalet #interiorphotography #craigleith #alpineskiclub
One of my favourite ingredients for a successful portrait shoot is an existing rapport. Here are a few images I captured with the @thekoreteam earlier this year - local real estate team, real estate investors and airbnb super hosts!  We used one of their airbnbs for this shoot which gave us lots of options for backgrounds to our portraits. #portraits #businessportraits #hilltopchalet #airbnb #superhost #bluemountains #collingwoodontario #collingwoodphotographer #environmentalportraits
Before ↔️ After. An example of how I helped my client help their clients decide on a new color to paint their house earlier this year.  Here's the original, the three example colours I rendered onto the house and the final, real life finished product.  I think it looks amazing 😍 what do you think? #lovemyjob #photoshop #photographyforrealestate #visualization #georgianbayhomes #realestatephotography #collingwoodphotographer #collingwoodrealestate #beforeandafter
A little before/after.  I shot this home for a custom home builder on a pretty lacklustre day so I decided to have a bit of fun with it.  The process of adding a sunset sky to a daytime image and artificially "turning the lights on" 💡 is sometimes called a virtual twilight or day to night conversion - this is my first attempt at that technique.  #photoshopbeforeandafter #photoshop #daytonight #virtualtwilight #collingwoodhomes #collingwood #collingwoodontario #modernhome #customhome #realestatephotography #architecturalphotography #practice #honeyourcraft
A view of Blue Mountain village this afternoon, looking beautiful under a fresh blanket of snow.  Photographed from the balcony of a great little condo hitting the market soon!  #bluemountain #bluemountainvillage #collingwoodontario #freshsnow #georgianbaylife #realestatephotography #realestate #collingwoodrealestate
Some frosty symmetry from a shoot this week of a cottage near the shores of Coutnac Beach on Georgian Bay. #realestate #realestatephotography #architecture #symmetry #snow #freshsnow #cottagecountry #coutnacbeach #ontariocanada #georgianbayhomes #georgianbayliving #collingwoodrealestatephotographer
This is the Vandermeer Custom Homes team - a local, family run business who create some beautiful custom homes in the area which I've been lucky enough to photograph on a few occasions. 📸🏡 We captured these images earlier this fall to help update their website and other printed materials. Find their instagram to see some of their fine work @vandermeerhomes  #familybusiness #portraits #groupportrait #team #localbusiness #collingwoodhomes #collingwoodphotographer #collingwoodontario #georgianbay #outdoorportrait
This is what happens when a builder designs their own home 😍 high ceilings and lots of windows for the win.  Photographed last week at one of four homes I visited by this local builder #naturallight #kitchen #realestatephotography #interiordesign #collingwoodontario #georgianbay #collingwoodhomes #collingwoodrealestate #white #bright #customhome #interiorphotography
Meet Chai, she helps property owners become successful airbnb hosts in the Collingwood area. We captured these images earlier this autumn for her new website and ad spot in @ourhomesmagazine. Look for Giving Tree Hospitality on Google if you have an airbnb you want her help with! #portrait #airbnb #bluemountains #collingwood #collingwoodphotographer #commercialphotographer #businessportrait #environmentalportrait #georgianbay
Same day same client, very different weather. ❄️💨🌤Photographing model homes in Lora Bay and Cobble Beach for @reids_heritagehomes fingers are crossed that my photos beautifully highlight their designs and help them win some awards this year. #lorabay #cobblebeach #architecturalphotography #snowsquallwarning #collingwood #owensound #thornbury #realestatephotography #realestatephotographer #collingwoodphotographer #modelhome #georgianbayhomes #georgianbayliving
