SARASOTA, Fla., Aug. 27, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Leading architectural photographer Laura Dante has traded skyscrapers for Gulf breezes, opening a new studio here after relocating from New York City. In Manhattan, Dante was the favorite photographer of some of the country's top-producing real estate agents, shooting many high-end, landmark and celebrity homes for their listings.
"I'm excited to be working in Sarasota and Tampa Bay, two of the nation's premier real estate markets," Dante said. A graduate of The Savannah College of Art and Design, Dante is known for her artistic style, attention to detail and strikingly beautiful photos. Her photographs have been published in the New York Times, Vogue, and Art and Auction.
"When I walk into a home, I think about lines, shapes and color, and how to balance all of these elements together in my photos," she said. "My goal is always to present the home in a stunning fashion."
Professional photography has become critical in marketing real estate to consumers, who are using their smart phones and tablets to search properties online.
"Today's buyers look at hundreds of homes on the web," said Dante, who shot more than 2,700 properties while working in New York City. "If the photographs they see don't capture their attention and create a positive perception, they immediately move on to the next listing."
Studies show that photographs taken by a professional help online listings get more clicks and increase the perceived value of a home by nearly 13 percent, or $65,000 on a $500,000 property.
Laura Dante Photography is affiliated with VHT Studios, the nation's leading provider of real estate and architectural photography. "Shooting homes and architectural interiors is one of most challenging types of photography," said Brian Balduf, CEO of VHT Studios. "Laura's experience, skills and passion for her work made her the go-to choice for top agents in New York City, and I'm confident the top professionals in Sarasota and Tampa Bay are going to be glad to have her."
