●       Next-day, noon delivery for most shoots. Payment is required upon delivery of photos.

●       Professional equipment for producing the highest quality photography.

●       Reliable invoicing system makes paying David J Photography easy, and keeps billing clear for the real estate agent.

●       We charge by the amount of work required to produce a professional result, and NOT the square footage of the home.  This way you can control how much you’d like to spend on each listing.


Standard Package - $150 minimum

●       Finished photos enhanced by the use of one or more speedlites and multiple exposures are delivered.

●       Post-production in Lightroom and Photoshop of interior as well as exterior photos.  This may involve sky replacements, content-aware fill, layer masks and blending in Photoshop, and other post-production techniques that produce a better finished photo.

●       All flash photos utilize off-camera flash techniques to produce a more polished result.


●      Elevated exterior photos using pole technique, $10 each.

●      Twilight photos of the exterior of the home, typically 2 photos. $25 each.

●      Larger homes, or "trophy" homes that require more time on site and extra post-processing will be negotiated separately.

About David J Photography

My name is David J. Wickenhauser. I reside with my wife and college-age daughter in beautiful Sun City West, Arizona.

I am retired from a 33-year career as a newspaper journalist, with the last 14 years owning and publishing the community newspaper in the California mountain community where we lived before moving to Arizona three years ago.

I’m learning that one never really retires. So I wish to make use of the experience of a lifetime of taking photos by helping local real estate agents sell homes for their clients.

We want to work with you to make your clients' homes sell as fast as possible, and to make your listings stand out on the MLS.

Ethics Statement

David J Photography performs post-production work on all photos and videos.  While we do our best to make sure the photos are an accurate and ethical representation of a home, we also use techniques to enhance the photos to look their best. 

If at any time you are uncomfortable with a photo, you may always request the original, unretouched photo to determine if the photo ethically and accurately represents the home.  It is the responsibility of the real estate agent to ensure that the photo is an accurate representation.

* Number of photos delivered is a variable dependent on the size and condition of the home. Usually 20-25 photos is sufficient for displaying all the desirable features of a typical 3/2 home. A higher-value home which has been exquisitely staged and landscaped could require more photos to show off its features. We encourage a walk-through with the client prior to taking photos in order to assess these aspects.
