I recently started shooting for Matt O’Neill Real Estate in Charleston. Matt and his young team are incredibly industrious and cutting-edge when it comes to Hi-End homes in the growing Charleston Real Estate Market.

My mission is to shoot very emotional Hi-Impact Exterior Charleston Real Estate Photography that outlines the beauty and serenity of Charleston and Lowcountry Lifestyle. The Real Estate Listings are supposed to stand out from the competition to give Matt O’Neill the visual cutting edge.

The lead image in this post features a house on Daniel Island. Successful Charleston Real Estate Photography sells. This house had the first offer in less than  3 weeks of the listing.

The second property I shot for Matt sits on a deep water lot on Johns Island. Matt wanted me to showcase both the house and the deep water creek in one photograph. This property went under contract in less than 24 hours after listing – Made to Sell! Matt was more than pleased with the result.

For both photographs I used my trusted Cambo Widebody RS with the fantastic Rodenstock 40mm HR Digaron-W lens at f/11. The lens/camera combo can be tested and purchased from the great folks at Capture Integration. It’s a classic camera combination for Architectural Photography. I do love to shoot my LF Linhof Master Technika, but 4×5 combined with a Digital Back is not very utilitarian for shoots in complicated sunset light situations. All of my dusk shots are shot as seen, I do not use HDR image layering. Phase One Digital Backs deliver 12 stops of usable Dynamic Range at 16bit.
