On a beautiful May day, I loaded up my tripod, camera and trusty old 3DR Solo drone to head down to Lexington, Kentucky for my first real estate photography gig.
I will admit I was a little nervous. Not so much about the work, but oddly more about meeting new people in a new situation I had practically no experience in. I consider myself to be a fairly social guy, so I thought it would be smooth enough, but the unknown was enough to get my jitters going it seemed.
This was not the average first gig. This was a million dollar farm in the heart of Lexington, Kentucky’s most famous horse area.
Farm after farm in pristine condition and extraordinary proportions lined the narrow windy roads on this beautiful day as I made my way to the farm.
Arriving at the farm, I was relieved to find the realtor already there.
We had not met yet. I parked and went over to introduce myself and ask her if she had any input or plans on how she would like to proceed. She claimed that this was her first experience with this as well, so I immediately took the lead and went to work.
The realtor and owner were a pleasure to work with as they lead me through the property and cooperated very pleasantly as I shooed them out of the frame as I shot my way from room to room.
