Many Years age, before I was a Real Estate Broker, I was a Professional Photographer so I really appreciate the finest quality in lighting that only an experienced Photographer can provide. James Governali does an outstanding job on an house photos for my listings. If I have a high-end home that must have the best quality photos, James is the only one that I will use. Most other Photographers can do a decent job but they don’t know the correct technique for preventing windows from looking washed out so you can’t see clearly outside, James knows how to do it!!
What a wonderful experience! James made a stressful endeavor a pleasure. Prompt, professional, & proficient. In addition to his artistry, he is personable and knowledgeable. His turn around time was incredible and the product superb. I will be sure to use him again and recommend him to family and friends. Thank you James, my family and I are so pleased!
We invested a lot in our home over the years, and when it was time to sell, invested a lot of effort in making the home look its best for sale. But doing justice to a beautiful home is no simple task, and what’s the point if it doesn’t show in the photographs that are your primary marketing tool? I applied the same care to finding a photographer as I did for any aspect of preparing our house for sale. James’ website gave me confidence that his commitment to producing great photos would be as great as mine — and that he’d have the expertise and skill to bring it to fruition. What I didn’t realize is just how much there actually was to producing great shots: not just choosing the right angles, or having the right the lighting, the right camera and the right lenses...but also taking many exposures of the same shot, so he could manually combine them to produce photographs with optimal lighting everywhere? Amazing. James’ commitment to perfecting his photographs exceeded even my expectations.The payoff? Three days after listing, we accepted a full price offer. Of course, all that we had invested in our home was essential to that outcome, but great photos were also an essential element, bringing ready buyers to consider our home. And James’ outstanding photos did that job, outstandingly.

We can not say enough about how amazing James’ pictures were that he did of our home! He not only takes amazing photos but he also gave us great suggestions to enhance the photos even more. James’ professionalism was A++! Any questions I had through the process were answered immediately and the turn around for our pictures were ahead of the timeline that we expected them. I received my pictures the night after the shoot with all the editing done! It has been a long time since I have dealt with someone who took so much pride in his profession. His love for photography shows in his work and his work ethic!! Thank again James!!

As a Realtor, marketing a home with beautiful pictures are key to help you succeed. I have had buyers call me to see my listing based solely on the pictures taken by James. His professionalism and expertise is a testament to his quality of work.
James is a delight to work with. He arrived on time, set up quickly and began working carefully and efficiently room by room. He took dozens of photos in each room, adjusting his lighting to get the best effect. He also gently suggested some interior design “tweaks” to improve the appeal of a given shot.We received the finished photos quickly and they came out fantastic! A very pleasant experience throughout.
