Why I Love Character Homes

December 04, 2015  •  Leave a Comment
I photograph a lot of different types of homes across a wide range of price ranges and some of my favorites are older character homes.  I've seen plenty of fancy homes, but sometimes the layouts are just too predictable and uninspiring.  When I'm driving to an older neighborhood I often think to myself, "I wonder what kind of cool compositions this one will have?"
One of my favorite things about character homes are the entryways--many times they are individual little spaces all by themselves.  Showing staircases as part of the entry are one of my favorite types of photos, as well as putting the entryway in context with a living room or other area.
And of course, character homes lead me to my favorite type of interior composition--a straight on one point!
Maybe it's the fact that I've been shooting a lot of these older homes lately that inspired this post, but it's the variety of properties that makes my job interesting and well-staged character homes will always be some of my favorites to photograph!
