Kind Words

It was a pleasure working with you. We appreciated your prompt responses to all of our inquiries. Your professionalism was outstanding and your skill made our house look incredible. Our Zillow “saves” and “views” have increased since we added your photos last week. We could not be more impressed and will recommend you to both our friends and Realtor friends.

Our photography session was excellent. Michael delivered professional photos in an amazing time frame. I would highly recommend his services.

Michael has educated not only me on the art of photography, but also my clients. He prepares all of us with detailed information regarding how to best stage and show the home before it’s photographed, which is instrumental to getting buyers in the door. Not only that, but he spends hours at each property ensuring that he is able to capture the best shots possible. Clean, crisp, attractive, and fantastic photographs each and every time! I highly recommend Michael Gowin.

Since most buyers begin their home search on the internet, high quality listing photos are essential. I’m committed to this high quality for the sake of my sellers, so I’ve repeatedly chosen Michael Gowin to photograph my clients’ homes. Michael skillfully captures the essence of a home, highlighting its most desirable features and bringing out the best in every room. His keen grasp of architectural photography enables him to compose photos which express the warmth of a home without neglecting detail. My clients are always pleased with Michael’s work. They not only appreciate his skill, but also his respectful approach to photographing their home. I’ll continue using Michael because his work pleases my clients, strengthens my marketing, and contributes so significantly to a closed transaction!

Thank you for the extra time and effort you put into getting the shots you did. They really are incredible and capture many features of this unique home. Your eye for detail, your position in the room when taking a shot, your care. Your shots are “on purpose” every time. You have a vision that you desire each shot to look like and you know when that vision is going to happen. For instance... waiting for the sun to be in the right position to get the best photo. This listing deserved you. It deserved attention and detail. Thank you for giving it that.
