About Mark Gutierrez

I have been photographing Real Estate Professionally for 6 years and I have photographed approximately 7500 houses to date, that’s approximately 3.75 houses a day, 7 days a week for 5 years.

As a Real Estate Photographer my strength is capturing stunning compositions with minimal lighting. Every image I create has a purpose, with final tours that will not only capture buyer’s attention but leave homeowners and real estate agents excited.

I have great understanding of the value quality images can bring to this industry and how quality professional photography improves branding for both photographers and realtors.
