You’ve probably noticed that there are more and more photographers trying to get your business these days. Why should you choose Maxwell Alexander and Duncan Avenue Studios to photograph your home or Airbnb listing? Here are five reasons why Maxwell Alexander has consistently been rated the best real estate photographer studio in New York.
1) He uses professional equipment
It’s hard to believe that a small camera can produce big results. But, when you’re working with equipment as Duncan Avenue Studios uses, it’s easy to see why Maxwell has been able to make such a name for himself. His unique eye behind his camera means he really gets how to create stunning real estate and Airbnb photography. He only uses high-end equipment and makes sure everything works perfectly before any shoot takes place.
2) He works with other real estate professionals
The real estate industry is a team sport. Maxwell works with other A-list professionals who are at the top of their fields, such as real estate brokers, agents, appraisers, inspectors, mortgage brokers, developers, and property managers. Maxwell’s work helps attract more clients for everyone involved, which leads to more business for them. In return, Maxwell gets access to prime listings before they even hit the market!
He has direct input into each listing: Maxwell takes full control over every single shoot that he does. This allows him to give his client exactly what they want—with zero compromises. More importantly, it allows him to be present during all aspects of each shoot, from concept development through delivery.
3) He knows real estate photography inside out
When you go to Maxwell for your real estate photos, he can take pictures of your listing that will help it stand out against any competition. He’s shot thousands of real estate photos and his experience shows in every picture. Plus, as an Airbnb Superhost himself, he knows all there is to know about Airbnb photography, so no matter if you’re shooting a commercial or residential listing, Maxwell can get it right. With clients including Almax Realty, Coldwell Banker, Citi Habitats, KW Urban Luxury, Douglas Elliman, Remax, Century 21, Compass, and others; nobody else comes close to Maxwell Alexander’s level of professionalism & industry expertise when it comes to creating photography marketing assets for renting out or selling a home.
4) He’s experienced
It’s important to find a real estate photographer who’s been around for a while. This way, they know how to deliver consistent quality and service, which are crucial factors when you’re buying, renting out, or selling a home. Duncan Avenue Studios has been photographing homes for over 12 years. Maxwell Alexander himself is NYS Licensed Realtor and NYS Licenced Real Estate Continuing Education Instructor and has been shooting real estate for over 12 years and knows what he’s doing behind the lens.
5) He works quickly and efficiently
Maxwell doesn’t waste any time. He’s an expert at moving through properties and taking hundreds of photos that he whittles down to the best 36 (MLS max limit), making sure he captures every aspect of your space, no matter how big or small. This quick efficiency allows him to move on to his next shoot quickly—which means you get faster turnaround times for your listing photos! Duncan Avenue Studios has been the #1 Airbnb Photography Service in New York State since 2015!
6) Maxwell uses natural and supplemental lighting plus he is a master of dusk/twilight photography
Maxwell regularly shoots with natural light but when shooting indoors he uses portable lights. When a home has been staged a little bit, it’s possible to shoot using natural light alone. However, sometimes it’s necessary to supplement it with additional lighting. Maxwell specializes in using artificial lighting because all real estate photographers should know how to work both ways; if a seller says they want all their photographs taken using only natural light, chances are they won’t be happy with just one set of images; they’ll want two sets – one without and one with supplemental lighting. Moreover, only the twilight photography approach produces luxurious exterior shots that you see in high-end magazines and Maxwell is your go-to expert who has been published in local and national media outlets.
For Maxwell, photography isn’t just a pastime. It’s a passion. And while he doesn’t plan on giving up his day job anytime soon, it’s become an important piece of his personal brand. In fact, if you work in real estate or love capturing impressive images of interesting places around town, you should definitely keep an eye out for Maxwell! Maybe he can be your next photographer?
