If you impress your audience with great imagery, your are making a great first impression. Great first impressions draw the consumer in, often leading them to narrowing down their options quicker, and eventually lead to decision making and closed sales. When selling architecture or real estate, the first photo a potential buyer sees of a penthouse condo, luxury home or apartment, should be a strong representation of the community and the home. Less-than-flattering pictures can turn buyers off and lead to lonely open houses.
We enjoy our loyal clients who come back to us for repeat interior and exterior photography projects. One client mentioned after implementing their first home’s photos, a new home buyer and customer mentioned “upon first seeing this amazing photo, I knew I wanted to live in life in that photo and enjoy that lifestyle.” Through the use of photography and building a company’s corporate image or company brand with photographs, developers, builders, marketing experts and more commonly say establishing a brand can create an impact on your audience.
As Chicago architectural photographers, we are capable of not only interior and exterior home photography such as the photographs previewed above, but we offer the option to provide photos beyond the single property or typical home photos. Often we are commissioned to not only capture indoor and outdoor home photos of our client’s personal residence or the agent’s listed home, whether being a residential location such as a rooftop penthouse, loft, condominium, or luxury townhome or photos of a commercial property, photography of a new condo construction project in Chicago, multi unit suburban or downtown development, or investment property, but we are happy to also provide and offer an option to upgrade our services with extra architectural photography items such as aerial photography, environment architecture photographs, lifestyle photography, nearby location landmarks, travel and leisure photography.
For this project, we photographed a two bedroom, two bath luxury condo located in Chicago’s South Loop neighborhood in a high-rise tower within the One Museum Park West Tower IV development. With it’s ideal and prime development location on Lake Michigan, this waterfront location overlooks Chicago’s Grant Park, The Field Museum, Adler Planetarium, Solider Field Stadium, boats, yachts and Chicago Burnham Harbor. We talked about how the One Museum Park West development offers homebuyers not only to buy an amazing property, but they are also buying a lifestyle and the nearby urban community which goes along with living in the South Loop neighborhood. Our client decided to add on a day of Chicago architecture photographs which was beyond the real estate interior and exterior photography. Our architecture focus was to capture lifestyle photos all within viewing distance of the penthouse condo’s balcony. Locations included a few City landmarks viewed from the terrace such as Buckingham Fountain, pictures of the museums, Chicago yacht club, aerial photos of Soldier Field, and a full exterior skyscraper building photographs from Grant Park showcasing the properties proximity to the nearby Loop and business corridor. This South Loop development is ideally located close for commuters into the Loop, with easy travel to downtown commercial and corporate buildings. Within the Park West Tower IV building, we captured photos of the high-rise building’s pool and resident amenities. The extra photographs beyond the real estate and luxury condo photography home tour pictures were a perfect compliment to help illustrate and sell a lifestyle photographically.
