Terry

PPA insured (Member) & Lead Staff Real Estate Photographer - product testing

Hi, I’m Terry. A professional photographer based out of Panama City, Florida. I have a sincere passion for all things photography.

Why should you use professional photographers and videographers for real estate, you ask?

The answer is simple! Studies show that having professional photos and videos on your listing can increase your odds of your house selling over market value and the odds of selling quicker.

To me, it's a no-brainer!
