The promenade along the Hudson River Park, on the west Side of Downtown Manhattan, is one of my favorite places to relax during the weekends.
Packed with runners, bikers, families and tourists, it is one of the best spots to admire the One World Trade Center (formerly named “Freedom Tower”) from afar.
Now the tallest skyscraper from the Western Hemisphere, this building is absolutely gorgeous and I never get tired of looking at it and photographing it.
Here’s a couple of shots from a sunny Sunday afternoon.
Another beautiful Murray Hill co-op apartment to be photographed today!
The landlord’s goal is to sell fast, so I need to be quick and make this beauty look as good as possible on the pictures.
The apartment has been beautifully staged for the sale. I love it when I get to a photo-shoot and all the rooms are ready to go. Sometimes I have to clean the place for hours (and even make the beds) before it is ready to be photographed.
The rooms are spacious, with high-end furniture and appliances. The owner already knows what angles and shots he wants. I usually get to choose my angles, but I don’t mind being directed from time to time. The landlord obviously thought the photo-shoot through and it’s a refreshing feeling to see how much he cares. Kind of like photographing a model that has been in the business for decades!
A few hours later, after some post processing work (mostly brightening the rooms) – the pictures are sent to the landlord and the apartment is online. Considering the location and the apartment, I am pretty sure it will sell fast. Fingers crossed!
