Photography is an art form. Today art is combined with technology to showcase many new views of our landscapes. The technology and availability of new photography equipment has made aerial photography a popular option for those looking to showcase their model homes.

Aerial photography allows photographers to capture your property at angles that you can not get by standing on the ground. With aerial photography, you can capture full angles in one photograph. Also, the ability to survey the rooftops of your model homes are another reason why you should consider aerial photography instead of ground-based photography. 

Photos shot by an aerial photographer can definitely be used as a magnet to attract more interest in your properties. If your model homes are surrounded by trees, these photos are certainly useful. You can showcase all the amazing qualities of the areas surrounding your properties.

With one photo, you can show the potential of the property and the model home. With ground photography, you may have to use up to ten pictures just to give an overall summary of your model home. Aerial photography provides your potential buyers with a comprehensible view in one single photo. 

If you want to provide potential buyers with the opportunity to see your model home and everything surrounding it, such as the nearby locations, the roads, and other things, you can achieve this with aerial photography. Grey Street Studios, Inc. can give you professional aerial photography. Contact us today for more information.

Many people are relying heavily on the internet and technology, probably now more than they ever have. When you have a business or you offer services, it is essential to market that business.

Architectural photographers have studied for countless hours on the art of capturing the perfect lighting. Architectural photography allows for the evolution of different perspectives, and it can be the interior or the exterior.

Regardless of where the photography takes place, you can receive many amazing images when the right techniques are used. When you use architectural photography, the perfect image can be used to showcase your homes so you can attract more potential buyers. 


When shooting the interior, it can be a bit difficult to gather all the excitement and the innovation in a single photograph. However, a photograph that is high-quality can showcase all the amazing features and developments. These photos can not only be used to attract buyers for your homes, but you may also gain the attention of designers and architects. 

If you have a website for your homes and the construction process, you can use these high-quality images. As mentioned above, people are relying heavily on the internet. So, if you have an online presence, you can increase interest, sales, website traffic, and company awareness.

Thanks to the rebound in economic conditions, high-end builders are attracting “more affluent buyers.” No doubt, this trend means more competition for that luxury dollar as buyers look for a range of amenities that often include “granite countertops, high ceilings and nailed-down hardwood floors.”

But builders eager to promote their custom-built homes may push back on letting an architectural photographer step in to administer the coup de grace to their package: a gallery for their website or promotional materials.

Instead, they may reach for their iPhone to try to capture the expanse of high ceilings, or the exterior shot at night with the landscape lighting in full glow: best to leave such subtleties to Grey Street Studios, an experienced architectural photography dedicated to helping master builders growth their businesses.

Simply put, a professional photographer understands how to ‘work with’ structures and landscapes much like the contractor who ‘sees’ beyond the blueprints to the finished home.

A critical component of architectural photography is working with scale and symmetry. Ultimately, the ‘lens’ must turn those hard, straight lines of the home’s interior into soft scenes that pull the viewer into the photo with the right balance of light and angles. The results should provide a sense of movement.

And like the master builder, it’s all about understanding the tools of the trade and applying the right technique to deliver the shot: focal lengths, bracketing and exposure lengths, to name just a few of the necessary ‘tools.
