About John Stankewitz Photography

Welcome to my website!  I am a photographer based in Fort Worth, Texas specializing in Luxury Real Estate, Media, Editorial, Commercial and "Texas" Fine Art Prints and Stock Photography.


Premium Real Estate Photography for the Real Estate Professional:

I capture eye grabbing images of homes and communities inside and out.  I understand the nature of the real estate business, and have successfully worked with a range of clients, from private individuals and single agents to major builders and community developers. 

I provide top quality images that will give you a definite marketing advantage.  The first impression people will have of your property is conveyed by the photos they see online and in print.  Why not make it a great one?  Great photos mean faster sales, more rentals, and greater visibility.  A small investment in great pictures up front can pay huge dividends down the line.

I provide high-resolution photos for magazine advertisements, online listings, property brochures, web sites and other mediums. 

Markets I serve:

I currently offer real estate photography services Nation Wide.  The majority of my work is in the Dallas/Fort Worth market and surrounding areas but I also travel throughout TX regularly.  Travel charges may apply depending on property location.  Contact me for a custom quote where scheduling air travel is required.

What to expect:

I will work with you to schedule a convenient session that will allow for the best lighting conditions.  The time it takes to shoot depends on the project, but a typical single family home (4000 sq. ft. or less) can last up to 3 hours for 25 to 35 photos.  All shoots are done with studio lighting and specialized camera equipment.  Every photo is edited for exposure, color/white balance and straightening (unless instructed otherwise).  Editing can take up to a full day for a single property.  Within two working days I will Fed-Ex or Digitally Deliver your photos in 2 sizes, ready for Print and on the Web.

Reshoots are billed an additional 100% from the original invoice.  If a cancellation notice is given less than 48 hours a 50% fee of the invoice will be assessed if the client reschedules within 30 days. If I am in route or arrive on location a 100% fee of the invoice will be assessed regardless if the client reschedules.  

Luxury Homes, Architectural, Commercial and Magazine 

Larger studio lights are brought in and I will produce magazine quality photos highlighting architectural details and lifestyle if needed.  Photo editing is included and RAW files can be requested for work with your publisher(s) to optimize each photo for the type of media being used.

The following services can be added into a custom package:

  • Property Staging (through a Staging Provider)
  • Lifestyle Models and Makeup/Hair Artist 
  • Elevated Pole (Low Aerial) Photography
  • Aerial Property Photos (requires one week notice)
  • Weekend Appointments

  • Extended Travel (I will fly if needed)

Contact me today and I’ll customize a package to meet your specific needs.  I tend to book-up quickly, so if your shoot is time sensitive please contact me for availability.
