National Camera Day is observed each year on June 29th. This day commemorates photographs, the camera, and their invention. A camera is an irreplaceable tool used to record and replicate memories, events, and people/places. Before the invention of the camera, the only resource to document a vision was a painting. There are very few who can perfectly capture the image of a person or a place in a drawing. The power of a camera provided many with a simple, inexpensive and fast solution.
George Eastman, also known as “The Father of Photography,” brought the camera to the masses. While he did not invent the camera, he did invent many additions that improved the use, ease, and production of the camera, making it widely available to homes around the world.
The original camera was large and bulky but has now evolved into something that can be as small as a pen. Cameras have many features and variations, making them appealing to men and women of all ages for personal and professional use. (HT – Click Here)
One of the regrets I have heard from both sellers and buyers is, “You should have seen the house before I did…” Or with pride in their voices, “I wish you could see how I changed this or took out this wall. You just would not believe it.”
There is a simple solution and I have shared with several – use a camera. You can spend hundreds in getting a digital SLR camera, or go to a pawnshop and buy one that still uses film. I think you can still buy Polaroid cameras that spit out the finished picture out the bottom of the camera, or you can just use your phone. Even flip phones have cameras these days.
A privilege I have at the closing table of the Title Company is taking a picture with my clients. A few don’t care to have their picture published on my Facebook business page, but most appreciate being asked. This gives me a personal record and a reminder that while my work does involve house hunting, reams of paperwork, and late evenings and weekends away from my family – my chosen career is all about people!
One of the benefits of working with me is that I use a professional photographer for every home I list. This is true of everything from a mobile home or a first time small home up to million dollar properties. I want to present your home in the best manner possible.
With that, don’t forget to smile and take some pictures. Then call me at 307-286-0396 to get your home listed.
