Auburn is a beautiful location with ample hotels, restaurants and shopping.

I look forward to continued workshops with him for the bottom line: My photography results improved dramatically”            Sharon O’Brien-Lykins  /  CameraHorse.com

 

  • Hold on to your hats ladies and gentlemen because attending a workshop with Rich Baum will knock your socks off.   He is super informative and completely transparent in his practice and technique. I was pretty strong going into his work shop but walked out of it with a whole new approach and bag of tricks! Nothing quite like having an arsenal of knowledge taught to you by one of the best when you get into a tough photography situation”  Kristine Kohl  /  kristinekohlphotography.com

 

  • “I have been an avid follower of Rich’s YouTube videos, so when I heard that he was holding a workshop on real estate photography, I didn’t hesitate to sign up. Rich’s delivery style in person is very much like what you see in his videos. He is knowledgeable, thorough, patient, and clear in his delivery of the content. He uses real-world examples that are relevant to real estate photographers and brings his years of experience into the classroom. I highly recommend Rich’s workshops!”  Cheryl DeCristofaro / housescapephotography.com

 

  • Rich Baum is an excellent instructor and it was a pleasure to see him work in person. What I truly appreciated was that he teaches you how to maximize your time both on location and during the editing process. He is full of knowledge, patience and loves sharing his expertise of real estate photography. It was really a great experience”  Mary Powell / marypowellphotography.com

Model Home Shoot with Sony a6000

I recently had the opportunity to photograph a model home with a consumer grade Sony a6000 Mirrorless Digital Camera..  This camera is not only very inexpensive but light and small which is such a welcome change from the big heavy Nikon DSLR Cameras I use daily. In addition to this camera body I used a 16-50mm “Kit” lens which actually preformed quite well for something so inexpensive.

All photos were hand held using only available light and no tripod.

Now I’m not about to go out and sell all my Nikon gear and stop using lights and a tripod but it was sure refreshing to get these results from something as simple as a $400 Mirrorless Sony Camera..

This magnificent home in the prestigious neighborhood of Arden Arcade in Sacramento CA was such a pleasure to photograph for agent Carmah Hatch of Dunnigan Realtors. At 4,906 sq ft. on a .45 acre lot with perfectly manicured landscape and furnished impeccably ready to be photographed for Architectural Digest magazine, this 5 bedroom 5 bath masterpiece will certainly go down as one of my favorite homes I have ever had the opportunity to photograph.

Conveniently accessible from both Hwy 99 and I-5, Viaggio is a secluded and private estate with classic elegance nestled among beautiful walnut orchards and the serenity of the river. Viaggio‘s stunning and exquisite backdrop of the Mokelumne River offers plush outside grounds and several venues, each with gorgeous picturesque views.

As I shoot many weddings every season here at Viaggio with my good friend Lori of Lori Makabe Photography I had the opportunity to talk with owner Teri Lawrence about shooting promotional photos for them in 2015 and we felt it would be a wonderful opportunity to also include some photos featuring the fantastic Christmas decorations that are now up in the estates mansion.

As you enter the grand entrance of the mansion you are greeted by a 20′ Christmas tree complete with all the decorations. As you can see it’s really quite breath-taking and beautifully appointed.

RB3_1560-Edit

In addition to six fully decorated Christmas trees the entire home is decorated from floor to ceiling with nothing left untouched..

Placerville Wedding Location Scout

2013-05-08_0001

When it’s time to pick your wedding photographer be sure that he or she has either shot a wedding at the venue you pick or is willing to do a location scout well before the wedding. This is so important as the last thing you want is your photographer showing up the day of the wedding having never seen the location.

2013-05-08_0003For the wedding I have August 3rd at The Season’s Bed & Breakfast in beautiful and historic Placerville CA I took the time to visit this location so I could see first hand what the look and lighting would be for this upcoming wedding. I not only found wonderful photo locations but also got a look at the lay of the land for lighting and sun direction which is a very important part of photographing any wedding or important event.

2013-05-08_0002

I was very impressed with the look and feeling I got walking around this location, the grounds were perfectly manicured and everything looked fresh and wonderful. Now I know first hand that this location will provide the perfect backdrop for  perfect wedding photos …
