Sarah Petersen has been working as a professional real estate photographer for the past 6 years and running her own business for the past year. Prior to this, she worked as an in-house real estate photographer for the Professionals Real Estate Group servicing the Northern New South Wales and the Gold Coast areas.
This experience is specifically in medium to high end properties as well as commercial businesses.
She can also provide professional colour 2D floor plans for any business or home layout.
Her employment background is in customer service, artistic photography, film and television which gives her a great eye for detail!
I do love the story telling of photography. A simple prop, placement of furniture can change the whole meaning of a photograph. The possibilities are endless.
Technology is rapidly changing and improving so I love that I am constantly learning new things about how to use my equipment to achieve particular creative and professional results.
What types of shoots have you done and how did you make them special?
In real estate the majority of shoots I do are personal residences, boutique businesses and commercial spaces. In order to give these shoots their uniqueness I will go out of my way to make sure I have the perfect shot. This would include adding props and moving furniture to make the space really pop! I also make a point of really finding what makes this place special and trying to bring that out in my photos.
