Meet John Badalamenti – Professional Real Estate Photographer, Videographer and Drone Operator

Originally trained in color photographic retouching in a pre-press trade house in NYC serving Madison Avenue print advertising agencies, John Badalamenti is a Certified Photographer by the Real Estate Photographers of America and InternationalTM, Member of the Professional Photographer’s Association of America, Certified Drone Photographer by the Aerial Drone Photographer of AmericaTM, and an FAA Certified sUAS (drone) pilot. John was also a full time Realtor® and licensed broker before starting his photography/videography business four years ago.

I am pleased to offer HDR (high dynamic range) real estate photography, HD cinematic videos, aerial photography/HD videos, twilight photography (including aerials), agent headshots and agent promotional videos. I am fully insured for photography/video & drone operations.

A recent East Coast transplant, I live in Tempe, Arizona and serve the Phoenix Metro Area, a.k.a. “The Valley” (Phoenix, Scottsdale, Paradise Valley, Tempe, Mesa, Chandler, Gilbert, Glendale, Surprise, Sun City, Goodyear, Avondale).

Many Realtors deal with time constraints to get their listings posted on the MLS® (plus many other sites). I understand these demands and provide 24-hour turn-around for listing pictures. I also know that agents work weekends too, so I too am available for weekend shoots. For agent headshots or promotional videos, I will come to you/your location for your added convenience.

My early days in photography included working in a darkroom or retouching films on a light table for hours by hand. Then or now, analogue or digital, the excitement I’ve always felt of seeing a picture come to life in print or on screen remains the same and it’s the reason I’m so passionate about my photography and video work.

Having been a real estate agent myself, I view each real estate photography and/or video project from the eyes of a Homebuyer; the attributes of a property that help a Homebuyer envision themselves living there. For agent headshots and promotional videos, I try to make this a fun and rewarding experience to help the agent relax and be themselves.

Please feel free to reach out to me anytime with any questions and/or for pricing & availability. If you’d like to grab lunch or coffee to get to know me a little better and how I work, I’m happy to do so as well. — John Badalamenti
