Photography

Photography is a hobby of mine. I think photos can tell one a great deal about an area. Some of these shots are a bit artistic, but others are designed to show off the character of some of Westchester’s great cities, villages and towns. Have fun with this and see the beauty of the Hudson River Valley.

Fotos On The Fly – Sights of the season – Christmas lights

For the next couple of weeks, I will be trying to post a photo every day from that depicts the sites of the season. They won’t necessarily be all about Christmas or any of the other holidays. They will just be symbolic of this special time of year.

Happy Halloween! Carlson’s of White Plains at Halloween

H Carlson Florist is a wonderful example of a local business that has thrived over the years because they are truly unique. Nancy Schellhas has a way of creating arrangements and offering quality goods for the home and hearth so that it leaves your local Pottery Barn in the dust.

Tornado Watch on Hudson

Fotos On The Fly – Stormy Weather…The Hudson River during a tornado watch…

A little over a week ago Westchester was having one of its "climate change moments. I was on the road playing fast and loose with a tornado watch as a line of storms approached from the west.

Porch - Gedney Farms White Plains NY 10605

Fotos On The Fly: The view from the front porch…

Porches can help sell homes....However, beyond the porch itself, is the view from the porch. If the view is a good one, you need to show it in all its glory....After all, if you've got it, flaunt it!

Slide Show Screen Shot

Fotos On The Fly – real Estate Photography – slide shows & video – less is more…

The jury is still out to some extent on the value of video. Although I will be upgrading my systems to include video, I do believe that with respect to video, less is definitely more. I also think that a simple slide show of still photos can be quite effective.

Upper West Side - New York City

Fotos On The Fly – Photographing outdoor spaces in NYC

It has occurred to me that many real estate photographers and agents ignore the views. They are so focussed on the "space" and the square footage that people are purchasing, that they forget something that is the first thing we are taught in real estate school: Real estate is location, location, location.
