From photography to real estate

Life is unpredictable. Intended to photograph architecture and real estate houses for fun and include some work in my retirement, I ended up being a licensed realtor in California. It’s great fun to find the best angle of view to photograph a house and present it to potential buyers. And, the ultimate reward is to market and sell the house. To me, it is not that much about monetary gain, it is the good work to be recognized and proven successful.

My hand-on years of experience in sales marketing and business development fit me right in the real estate and catch myself in surprise, I really enjoyed it. Oregon has been my home for over 25 years and it’s the place I’ve chosen to conduct the business and to serve the community I care and care for.

From International trading entrepreneur to wholesale marketing. From research development managing to designing, and retired to become a photographer. Now I am back to the workplace as a Keller Williams realtor.

In a retrospective of my career life, I am thriving for actions and passion drives me to excel in whatever I do.  Now I settled in the beautiful Northwest and figured out how to work and play. Photography is my daily vitamin. Real Estate brings me energy and enthusiasm. Together I have a balanced life.




A long pause

Thought I took a short break… to my surprise, this recess has taken three months!!!

I just came back from a trip to Vietnam where I have long desired to go. An untouched rural scene is what I envisioned about the landscape. However, I seemed not getting much opportunity to capture any except this one from the tour bus.

Out of all the locations I have been, this Shangrila-like secluded place is my most favorite. According to the locals, a tunnel was recently built for access. I hope future tourists would cherish and keep it clean and natural as it is now.

Bamboo hat and the fishing boat are other charms. While everything else is predominately earthy, colors enhance the outlook.

Water water everywhere. Reflections on the houses and buildings create an interesting scene of its own.

Simply Dahlias

One month flew by since I last posted. How would I ever chase Time and catch up with it? It is apparent to me that I cannot permit my camera in Rest mold too long…

The day could have been better if the sun was not so overpowering. The light could have been better if I got there earlier… Guess I just had to do what I can and forget the what if’s.

Swan Island Dahlias farm is an ultimate place for a broad selection of gorgeous Dahlias and certainly floral photography. I am impressed by the work they’ve contributed to manicure the farm and present the public with the absolutely close-to-perfect flowers and foliages.
