Interior Photography for Home Stagers

Interior Photography for Home Stagers

Last weekend, I had the opportunity to present at the IAHSP Europe Conference in Rome. It was really inspiring to meet the leaders of European home staging industry and see the results of their hard work. Home staging is growing in Europe and nothing makes me more happy to see the industry grow.

It also feels a bit of a full-circle for my career. Working as a home stager for 12 years has set a strong foundation for my photography and styling career now. Through home staging, it opened a lot of doors for me and I had the opportunities to work in many different creative fields. And now, working as a lifestyle and still life photographer in Paris.  

I started out about 12 years ago after meeting Barb Schwarz at a real estate conference when I was still working as a real estate buyer's agent. Jennie Norris, now the president of Staged Homes and IAHSP, was my trainer. These two women changed my life forever and I'm forever grateful. It was amazing to be able to share the same stage with them and share my experiences working as a home stager and now a photographer. It was also an absolute pleasure to meet other US and European home staging industry leaders, like Sanja Radovanovic, IAHSP European Director, Edi Keech, US IAHSP West Coast Director and Paula Bullard, Spot on Vastgoedpresentatie in Holland.

If you had missed the presentation, not to worry, here is my re-recorded and slightly more extended version of the presentation:
