As many of you know, I shoot a lot of Omaha real estate photography and video for Landmark Performance Homes. Recently, I had the opportunity to shoot photography and video of a complete custom home they build in Newport Landing up in Bennington. Like I said, this is a custom floor plan designed specifically for the homeowner, so it’s not one of Landmark’s hallmark floor plans.
Omaha Real Estate Video: Modern 1.5 Story at Newport Landing
The clients we built this home for chose modern styling. This redefines the notion of an open plan! It features 21′ ceilings, a loft with a glass balcony, a floor-to-ceiling stone fireplace, a large covered deck, and so much more.
Challenges I faced
Nothing was overly difficult about shooting this home, except the kitchen. Because the cabinets and other custom-built features were reflective, I had to deal with making sure I and my equipment wasn’t in the shoot. As a real estate photographer and videographer, you never want to be one of those people that shows up as a bad example of real estate photography! So I paid close attention to my reflections, even Photoshopping out a few tripod legs here and there.
My favorite part
This was an incredibly cool house–much different than what I typically shoot. I don’t get to shoot too many modern homes (although I have this one in my portfolio); there aren’t a lot of them in Omaha…yet. I really liked the glass balcony that overlooks the great room/living room.
The 21’ ceilings with the wall of windows were awesome, too; it would make for an awesome evening of lake living. I also (secretly?) dig the big commercial-sized refrigerator in the kitchen!
Attention to detail
Landmark Performance Homes always pays close attention to detail, and this house was no exception. Even the day before closing they were making sure everything was in perfect condition for the new homeowner.
