Rick Milton has seen some of his clients grow up before his eyes, rather I must say his camera lens. There is hardly anything cooler than to photograph the marriage of somebody that he photographed when they were a little kid in preschool or at elementary school. Milton told that kids are his favorite. He love the little guys. Those kids call him Mr. Rick.
Rick Milton Photography, owned by Rick himself, is at 3830 Washington Road. It opened his door for twenty seven years ago. The busiest time of the studio is from June to through Christmas. Milton told that there is not a lot of downtime for them. They were diversified enough that when one thing is slow, they were working on something else.
Rick works along with his wife Pam, who works as the office manager. His daughter Shelby also works part time since high school. He also has another photographer as well as a bookkeeper on staff.
The best thing Milton did till now as far as learning to run a business is learning to delegate it to his wife. Pam has a good business responsibilities on her shoulders. She runs the day-to-day business of the studio and that is very important. This is an art form, but it is actually a business. Unfortunately, that is one of the reasons that a lot of people could not make it.
After graduating from Art Institute of Atlanta, Milton started his career at a photo stdio in Atlanta. He used to go to Augusta for work. Later, after getting all necessary equipment, he started his own business in Evans.
Homebuyers are spoiled for selection in current market – whether they are looking through weekend Property Week or the real estate sites, there are many homes for sale in price range. Keeping that in mind, pictures of a property might make a difference between a move on to investigate the next listing or potential buyer deciding to call an agent.
Sean Robinson, a local Top Snap property photographer told that there has been a lot of research done overseas that indicates professional photography can make tens of thousands of dollars difference in the sale price of a property. From personal experience when he was looking for an investment property he gave up looking at anything that did not look good from the snaps.
Recently, a survey of over six hundred Australian real estate agents found that 99% of them tell that property photography is the most essential thing for a successful marketing.
The agents who followed believed that in addition to heighten a home’s presentation, pro photography also helps to get more buyers, increases inquiries as well as clicks on internet campaigns. In spite the stats, several vendors stay away from spending those extra money on pro photographs. Sean told that this is a small investment to attract that initial interest, first impressions are really important.
He added that when they use studio lighting to get rid of dark shadows and corners, plus we have other techniques like retouching to make sure they show the property in its best possible light.

A photographer has brought about a wildlife and walking guide after he got inspired by his surroundings. Each day, sixty two year old John Buxton spends many hours by walking around Hurworth with his dog. During that time he had taken thousands and thousands of wildlife pictures that surrounds that area.
Instead of keeping the pictures in his computer, he decided to make a booklet to show the biodiversity of that region as well as the number of walking paths available around Hurworth village.
He told that all the snaps were taken during last one and a half year. He really loves photography and after he retired, he decided that he would go out walking more and take snaps of wildlife in that region. He added that he was really surprised to see different kinds of wild species in and around his village. He knew that the number would be plenty, but when he saw the actual figure, he was really surprised.
In one day, he used to click more than four hundred photographs and when he thought to do something useful, he came up with the idea of creating a booklet. Then he thought that he would create something useful so that people could know the area better and what is out there.
Mr Buxton’s booklet’s name is Wildlife and Walking in Hurworth and the price of the booklet is £ 5. All profits from that book will be given to the International Humanity United Kingdom that supports a Sri Lankan village, which was destroyed in the 2004 tsunami.
