My name is Brian Cattelle and I am South Florida Real Estate Photographer. I started this business because first and foremost I love photography, but secondly I noticed some improvements that could be made to real estate photography services. My rates are very competitive and straight forward. As a solo photographer I have virtually no overhead and my savings are passed on to you. I’m also not going to nickle and dime you over any small edits. I don’t charge you extra for HRD (High Dynamic Range) images I just give them to you if they are needed. I’ll even help with furniture and set up or whatever else you might need, within reason of course. My photography will help you sell more and I will do whatever it takes to make sure of that. I also don’t try to squeeze in 10 clients a day, I keep my quota low so that when I come to photograph your property I have plenty of time to make sure the job gets done right. A simple straight forward service with simple straight forward prices from a great photographer and a great guy!
My artistic photography background make’s my images unmatched. The advantage of an artistic background is that I look at your property from a fresh new perspective often over seen by others. I have won a number of awards over my professional career for my artistic works. The most noteworthy of which include Grand Prix de la Decouverte international fine art photography contest and the Marlboro Capture the unknown contest. I have also held a number of successful exhibitions and has been published in a number of artistic publications.
