I was recently commissioned by Hardee, Hunt and Williams to photograph an incredible estate home at 6226 Richard Bradley Dr., which is being marketed by their company. This craftsman style home is situated in its own fenced, park like setting and is close to Wrightsville Beach. It has remarkable wood work throughout and will be a coveted property for that discerning buyer. It was the second time I got to work with Barb Wall who is a talented designer and stager. Barb is owner of  J-O-A-T and has a great eye for color and detail. She staged this home and as always, was a pleasure to work along side and to have her input. This beautiful home is representative of the quality of homes that are marketed by Hardee, Hunt and Williams.

Below are a few of the photos from the days shoot:

Not too long ago I was looking for a product that I could use for marketing and packaging. I wanted it to be as eco friendly as possible,attractive, but simple as well. So I started surfing the web and looking at companies and also what other photographers were using, recommending and so forth. After going back and forth with several companies and products, I found one that suited my wants and style and which provided me with a product I could use for different applications. This company was Kraft and Jute.

They produce personalized packaging for photographers and most recently, brides. They originally started with CD sleeves and now have moved into all types of packaging. Did I mention they were eco friendly? That was a big selling point for me and their products are produced on recycled card stock. The other cool feature is that many of their products are hand stitched! They will assist you with logos and art work and are really helpful and prompt to work with. I really can’t say enough about the company. I have included a few shots of the cd sleeve and presentation/info packet folder I use that shows the stitching. Mine are plain and simple. They have a good assortment of styles. You may also have each piece wrapped with their signature jute string and tag. I thought this was a nice touch, so I opted for this add on.
