Andrew was born in the western US. He spent his growing up years on a small farm in Missouri before moving to Tennessee. He received his first camera on his 15th Birthday and photographed practically everything in sight.
During college, his natural love of architecture and flying was melded by becoming the licensed drone pilot for a real estate photography company in Tennessee. He quickly developed a love for the art of photographing spaces.
He loves learning new techniques, and traveling to new places for his work, and has done real estate photography in Tennessee, Alabama, and Kentucky.

An interview with Andrew Keithly
Tell us a little about yourself.
I am the youngest of two children and was frequently considered the brainy nerd who would grow up to become an engineer, though I always had a strong creative side. In architectural photography, I found the perfect balance between my perfectionist engineering streak and my artistic side.
How would you describe your photographic style?
Every photoshoot is different, but to sum up my photographic philosophy, it would be to “simplify”. It is far easier to show too much than too little, ending up with a weak image. The nature of photographing spaces frequently lends itself to anything but simple images, yet I strive to have one clear subject and un-cluttered edges that don’t distract the viewer’s eye. I aim for pure colors unadulterated by color casts or odd lighting.
What’s your standard workflow when doing real estate photography, from arrival at the location through to delivery of the images?
I always do a quick walkthrough on location, then shoot room by room with my camera, tripod and flash equipment. My preference is to shoot the exteriors last so as to not hinder the home owner’s life any more than needed.
After transferring the raw photos to my computer, I edit in both Lightroom and Photoshop before delivering the final product to my clients, either through DropBox or a customized property webpage, depending on the client’s preferences and workflow.
How important is Photoshop or digital editing to your process?
Every photo I take goes through an editing process involving Lightroom and Photoshop. I avoid automated HDR techniques in favor of manually blending layers in Photoshop for the sake of maintaining realism and quality. Real estate images usually involve 3-4 layers. A single architectural image can take over an hour to edit and involves dozens of layers.
What do you enjoy most about photographing real estate, architecture and the built environment?
What I love about my work is that I can constantly explore new architecture. Also, I enjoy the quiet solicitude of shooting country estates. On the video side, I love creating a story through video that no one else would have seen in the raw video footage.
What has been the most memorable photo shoot you’ve ever done?
My most memorable shoot would be videoing a 2,000-acre farm on the Alabama border. Standing out among the rolling hills, cattle pastures, cornfields and meandering rivers, and being able to soak in the beauty of creation around me was an incredible experience.
What advice would you give to someone in Nashville who was selling their home?
The Middle Tennessee real estate market has been one of the hottest in the entire country for several years. If a sale of a home is announced with enough enthusiasm, a bidding war will frequently erupt the first weekend, ending in a fast sale above list price. The homes that aren’t marketed well on the opening weekend frequently end up sitting on the market for several months.
Do everything you can to attract as much attention as possible in the 48 hours before the official launch, and then host a well-publicized open house. Get people excited about it before they even see it, and you will close the sale as soon as it is listed.
What do you like to do away from work?
When not working, I love to play the piano, play tennis, and bike. Reading an incredible mystery novel, such as Agatha Christi, is also a favorite past-time.
