An interview with Estefania Turner
Tell us a little about yourself.
I'm a photographer and visual Artist based in Sydney, Australia who specializes in photographing interiors, architecture and real estate; I took my first photo when I was 6 years old and the rest is history. I also have a music and film obsession.
I was born in Bogota, which is Colombia’s beating heart: an engaging and vibrant city surrounded by chilly Andean peaks and steeped in sophisticated urban vibes. While doing my BA in visual Arts I was lucky enough to meet a number of amazing teachers who opened my eyes to the world of art, design and photography; this would have a strong impact of my life in endless ways than I could ever have envisioned.
In 2008 my passion for travel and adventure brought me down under; After studying Visuals arts and design at the Australian Catholic University and photo imaging at Tafe, I found myself taking up an offer to photograph homes and signed a contract as a contractor for Airbnb, becoming one of their official Sydney photographers in 2012 . This opportunity turned out to be the perfect field.
How would you describe your photographic style?
Editorial, Warm, bright, polished, open and bold.
What's your standard workflow when doing real estate photography, from arrival at the location through to delivery of the images?
Once initial greetings are over, I take a tour of the home/space with to determine which shots are to be taken. Taking the shots is the next step. It is essential to stage the area and make sure the area is photo shoot ready. I like to share my thoughts regarding the shot and why taking it from that angle. I also Have the client look through the view finder before I start shooting. Ongoing conversations and communications is the key.
-Wrap up – Once all the shots have been taken, I like be sure to invite clients to view the shots. It suggests completion of the job and leaves them both comfortable with my work.
-Post processing: All images taken go trough post processing and editing
- Quality control: Once I am happy with all the editing work I like checking every single image and see it as an editorial project so I make sure all the works is revised before is delivered to the client.
- Image delivery: This being the final stage, I provide my clients with a link in which they can access and download their images.
How important is Photoshop or digital editing to your process?
Equally as important as the photoshoot. This processing software allow me to adjustments such as:
- Balance exposure.
-Neutralize color. Photos should have a neutral white balance- not too warm or too cool.
-Check for consistency. I Use a grid view to check that all photos in the set are consistent in brightness, contrast and color balance.
-Clean it up. It allows me to Crop out awkward edges, remove dust spots, lens flare and your reflection in objects.
What do you enjoy most about photographing real estate, architecture and the built environment?
I love capturing the essence and unique stories of a space. Every home and space I photograph is unique, and it reflects that there is a personality and authenticity to each place.
What has been the most memorable photo shoot you've ever done?
One of the first shoots I ever did was an architecturally designed home. It was a converted tin shed and became one of the most popular listing on Airbnb in Sydney. At the time I was just starting to get into interior/real estate photography and had no idea what was going to be ahead of me. The shot is not great as it was early days but it certainly is memorable.
Have you ever had something really funny happen to you while photographing a home?
One day I was assigned to photograph an Airbnb apartment and was given the key to access the property as it was supposed to be vacant. When I opened the door, I found a person having a snooze on the sofa, I had to wake this individual as I had not clue who she was. She opened her eyes, said sorry and left the apartment without saying a word.
What advice would you give to someone in Sydney who was selling their home?
I would emphasise the importance of presenting their home at its best. A home that presents well will attract more interest. Secondly, to prioritize high quality and professional image. As they say, and image is worth a thousand words.
What do you like to do away from work?
If I am not taking photos or editing, I love playing guitar, watching independent films or reading a great novel. I also love indoor climbing, camping and travelling.
