When I'm on a photoshoot folks often ask me if I do weddings or portraits but I always say "I don't shoot people!". Of course I'll make exceptions when people are a part of the story I'm trying to convey, but portraiture isn't really my thing.

My specialties are Real Estate, Commercial, and Restaurant Photography, Panoramic Tours, and Video Services. My normal coverage area is Gulfport to Pensacola with Mobile as my base.

Photography for me is a business which grew out of my career as a Coldwell Banker agent. I became a real estate agent in 2002 with a belief that quality images were critical to the marketing of my client’s homes. It was true then and it’s even more important now, therefore I have made an extensive investment in time and dedication, (some would say obsession), to learn the methods for capturing images which not only show the spaces but convey the unique character and ambiance that each individual home has to offer. Video tours were a natural extension of my efforts because video can bring forth a more complete lifestyle view of the home and its surroundings. Other real estate agents noticed my work and began to approach me about providing photos and videos for their listings too, which is very flattering, and of course I am happy to provide the service for them and their most discerning clients. Soon after I added virtual tours to satisfy retail/commercial demand.

Experience and Corporate Clientele:

In early 2016 I became a contractor for EveryScape which is a supplier of panoramic tours for some of the nation's largest online advertising companies such as YP.com. My relationship with EveryScape provided me with professional training and experience that helped me take my photography skills to the next level.

After polishing my panoramic photo skills with EveryScape it was natural for me to begin shooting tours for Google Maps and Street View, and have since earned the Google Trusted Photographer designation.

In early 2017 I developed a relationship with another national company, RealPage, to provide professional photography services to the multi-family housing industry. Working for RealPage and EveryScape has given me the opportunity to learn from industry leaders and develop skills that are of benefit to my customers.

Currently I shoot on a regular basis for Evolve Vacation Rentals, photographing vacation homes and condos for rental listings as seen on HomeAway and VRBO. Evolve offers a variety of vacation rental listings but many are high end waterfront homes and condos so the owner’s expectations for quality images is always very high, but I have always been up to the challenge.

I also shoot residential real estate listings for VHT Studios.

And now I am proud to offer restaurant food photography to my list of services! Uber Eats and Grub Hub have become my regular clients for menu shoots, and the training and experience have helped me to hone my food shooting skills to a point I had never imagined before. If you are a restaurant owner keep in mind that I can showcase your menu items and location with magazine quality photos AND create a realistic virtual tour on Google Maps Street View- it's a complete package, and the cost is less than you might think.

Improve your image!

Whether you need real estate marketing photos or video tours, business location or product/menu item photos, or a traffic-building Google Maps Street View Tour- I’ve got you covered! Call me today and let’s talk about showing your listing, product, or business in it’s very best light. David Harris 251-721-6300
