What's the difference?

LUX real-estate photography is my proprietary shooting and editing method I have developed over the years to achieve the most beautiful and natural looking photos possible. I bring lighting with me to illuminate the rooms in a natural way, and spend a lot of time editing and blending the photos together to achieve the best results possible on the final photo.

HDR (High Dynamic Range) photography is the typical method most real-estate photographers use, and is a much quicker process.

Because my LUX process is much more involved, I need a lot more time in the home to take each photo, and the editing process afterwords is much more intense; because of these factors I can only aim for 48-72 hour turn-around time on photo delivery.

Although the LUX method is superior and recommended for higher-end properties or homes with lots of windows and beautiful views, both methods will produce professional looking photos that are better than quick cell phone photos - and all of my photos are taken with a wide angle lens on a tripod that is perfectly level, which makes them look even better.

See examples below, and decide which is best for you.
