Meet Sylvia Guardia M: Real Estate Photographer of The Month

June 9th, 2008

Those of you that frequent the PFRE flickr photo discussion group lately may recognize this photo and other images that Sylvia has been posting.Sylvia lives in San Jose Costa Rica, is 25 years old and graduated in Photography from the Veritas University, Costa Rica in 2004. Her web site is: says,

“I started doing commercial photography for hotels first, in 2006. In February 2007 I started offering 360 degree panoramic and spherical tours, and that led me to do some real estate photography soon afterwards. Since then, I’ve been taking pictures for real estate developers, along with pictures for hotels, architects, interior designers, etc… I’m always reading and learning through the internet. Through I’ve learned a lot from people that kindly share their techniques and experience with the rest. I believe since I started reading blogs, forums, and other discussions in the internet, my pictures have improved a lot. They have become more “professional” and technically much better. I believe my work has a lot of room for improvement, that’s why I try to learn something new everyday which I later try to apply in my work: during the session, and in post production as well. I absorb everything people suggest from looking at my pictures and that has helped me for future sessions a lot”

I use a Nikon D80 with a SB800 flash, 12-24 Tokina lens, 18-135mm Nikon lens. Manfrotto ball head tripod… I have a Nikon D70 which I sometimes use too.

It is inspiring to talk to someone as talented and passionate about photography as Sylvia is. I think this same exuberance shows in her images. I’m sure Sylvia’s photographic career has many great things to come. I’m looking forward to seeing more of her images!

  • Thank you! It was really an honor to have been given this! Everyone’s feedback, comments, tips and support have been very helpfull and motivating. Thank you all very much!

  • As a former ad director for several large US corporations, I’ve dealt with many excellent photographers. Sylvia’s work is as good as I’ve seen and covers a wide spectrum of styles. She not only knows how to photograph but to stage the photograph to really display the best in the subject.
