14 Camperdown Road

I received a phone call from Deborah Peterson Milne asking for a quote for interior photography. Her property was due to go on the market and she was not happy with the photographs that had been taken. She accepted my quote and a time was arranged to meet at her property in Camperdown Road. Deborah sent me copies of the photographs that had already been taken and they were not too bad but Deborah did not think they conveyed the feeling of the property she had put so much effort into creating. Looking t them, I felt that there was too much flash and some of the camera positions were not ideal.

When I met Deborah, I found out that she had worked in the property rental business for Margaret Duffus Leasing so new a bit about property and marketing. Her apartment was very nice and had lots of interesting touches, and a nice ambience. The predominance of flash in the photographs was not conveying this so I concentrated on using manly available light with less flash. For some of the shots, I used HDR (High Dynamic Range) where I used 7 or 9 shots at different exposures and combined them in Photoshop to keep detail in the shadow and highlight areas without ruining the atmosphere of the room.

I do not know the difference in price but my fees will have been higher but high quality commercial images are an investment.Good photography will not sell a property on it’s own but can make a difference to how many people arrange a viewing, and as Deborah says in of her comments – it can “help get them through the door”

If you have a property anything to sell or promote, get in touch to discuss your requirements.

Glamour, Glitz and Bubbles in aid of RNLI, 21st March 2015

We photographed a great event on Saturday. It was arranged by the Wood family who tragically lost their son, Stuart in 2009. The family wanted to learn about the search parties and this started their involvement in fund raising for the RNLI. Below is the story in Audrey’s words:

“Six years ago on 1st April 2009 flight 85n came down just of the coast of Boddam, 16 lives were taken including our son Stuart. Many months later we wanted to know how the search parties were involved in the search for the helicopter and the 16 bodies. We went to meet Fraserburgh RNLI and could not get over the emotions and the sincerity of these men. They told us of how upset that they were having to return back to shore as it became too dark for them to carry on searching, and how they left again on first light to begin searching again for our loved ones. The compassion and the comradeship touched us and even more so when we realised that they were all unpaid volunteers.

We decided to raise funds the first effort was a football match in Newmachar against Buckie Thistle. Then Kerry and I decided on a more female event, and in 2013 we held our first glamour, glitz and bubbles event at the Douglas hotel. The response for our events have been amazing, and with sponsorship from companies we have managed to take our small plans to a higher level. The support with raffle donations and auction items have been overwhelming and both Kerry and I have undertaken all the work without a committee. However without the loyal support of our family and friends we couldn’t have done it all. Until yesterday we had raised over £80,000 and the money has went  primarily to Fraserburgh and Peterhead, as they were involved in the search.Recently we have managed to include Aberdeen, Buckie and Macduff. Yesterday’s (Saturday 21st March, 2015) event raised another £19,000 and a late sponsor from Aberness Care kindly offered to top it to £20,000.
