Beachfront Home in Paradise
What can $6.2M get you on the island of Maui? Well, not as much as one might imagine, but still quite a bit. This cute 2 story beach home was an absolute joy to photograph. We staged water toys (surfboards, kites, etc) in the yard, I filmed the proper owner kite surfing right off the backyard, and got to fly a drone in a super controlled airspace (Mahalo to the FAA & local ATC for making that happen). Plus...I spent the day at the beach for work!
The ground & interior shots were created with a Sony a7r3 and Sony GM glass + a handful of speedlights scattered throughout the home. All single exposures, no HDR work here. Aerials were shot on a Mavic 2 Zoom. The camera on this little bird doesn't quite have the dynamic range I would prefer, but it does have a telephoto zoom lens, so that's fun.
BONUS: There's a video! Best viewed on a large screen @ 4k UHD quality with premium sound.
Normally, I'd show the entire property in an overhead top-down shot like this. However, the FAA limited me to a 75ft above ground level altitude with the drone, so I took what I could get.
