As a commercial drone company, real estate imagery was one of our first engagements. In June of 2015, we were the first commercial operators to make aerial imagery available to the local real estate industry. Our focus is on both residential and commercial offerings. We also offer services to capture interior photography and video which augments our aerial photography.
Roberto Garcia lived and worked in Bilbao, London, Milan, Paris, Madrid, and Barcelona, he explored New York and Miami, and finally, he decided to stay in Los Angeles. He has started his photography career by shooting DJs and event photos in the clubs, then he worked as a photo editor and fashion photographer in fashion weeks. And now he is focusing on the interior and architectural photography with his different photography and editing skills which comes from his previous experiences. I asked Roberto Garcia about the Importance of Photography in Architecture.
I`ve won quite a few awards as well as college photography scholarships. I am also a published photographer. I entered the real estate world as a Realtor and decided to carry my passion for photography into the industry.
After 10 years as an engineer at Northrop Grumman and GKN Aerospace, I decided it was time to take a leap of faith and pursue my passion. At first, I didn’t know what kind of photography I wanted to focus on, so I did a little bit of everything. But as fate would have it, my now wife and I were looking for a new home to start our life and were not very impressed with the images that we were seeing in our search. It was obvious that this was an opportunity waiting for me. We were also selling our individual properties and I ended up doing the photos of our listings for our agent. Everything launched from there. I fully immersed myself into learning the ins and outs of photographing and editing Real Estate images to hone in on my style and create a viable business. This was in October of 2013 and now I have photographed over 800 properties and counting! I am very proud of what I do and want to make sure that every client I work with is 100% satisfied with the images they receive.
