How to photograph Lightning! My favorite subject to photograph is lightning.  In the last few weeks I’ve had several people ask me how to photograph lightning.  I figured I would write a blog about how to photograph Lightning.  Lightning can be somewhat difficult to shoot.  Finding the right spo...

"Fragile" - the current state of the real estate transaction I've never seen the real estate market quite like this.  Buyer's seem more willing then ever to walk away, lenders are more picky then my kids at dinner time, and Seller's are fed up with watching their home values plummet over the last...

  What advertising adventure has worked best for you?   I have to admit that I am often guilty of not sticking with one certain advertising form for as long as I should.  I like immediate results.  While most advertising adventures were mostly a waste of money, some advertising adventures have be...

Who Moved My Cheese?....Time to read that book again. Many years ago I stopped by the bookstore to look for a book that had been recommended to me.  The person said that it was one of the best books he had ever read and it was really short.  I thought, "sounds like the perfect book for me".  I've...

Another stunning sunset in Tucson, Arizona I took my one year old son, Jacob, with me on a short hike near my house.  He was heavy (my shoulders still hurt) and he wouldn't stop playing with my camera strap around my neck while I was trying to take pictures.  But the sunset was awesome, the weath...

Just another Tucson Sunset I spend a fair amount of my free time with a camera in hand.  It's my alone time, which I think just about everyone needs more of.  This was taken just the other night while in Saguaro National Park east of Tucson, Arizona. Sunsets like these really do happen a lot here...

Golden Hour and other photography tips After my recent post about bad pictures on the MLS I decided to post a few more hints and recommendations for taking great pictures of your listings.   For good pictures (If you're not doing these, it might be time to hire a photographer) Don't photograph du...

You're actually using that picture for your marketing? I am an avid photographer so I might be coming at this from a slightly different perspective than most.  But when someone I know in my office used a "not so good" (holding back here since she's my friend) picture for her marketing of a listin...

This was last night's sunset in Saguaro National Park.  It is my favorite location to take pictures.  The park is actually divided into two parts.  The smaller, but more visited, park is on the west side of Tucson in the Tucson Mountains.  The larger park is on the east side of Tucson at the base...

Tucson has the best sunsets.  I might be just a little biased, having grown up in Tucson.  When I was a kid I didn't realize that other places don't have the amazing colors that only a desert sky can produce.   About 5 years ago I was at a family reunion in Colorado.  I had just started getting m...
