As a prize for being the 10,000 the PFRE Flickr group member, we are sending Eric Dugan a copy of all 5 of the PFRE e-books.
Here is a bio from Eric:
I moved to Solana County over 12 years ago and have been been passionately photographing the unique beauty of our area ever since.
Among my favorite things to shoot are interior and exterior architectural forms including residential, commercial and small businesses. My background is marketing and I spent most of my career in the residential furniture industry, so I grew up having a unique appreciation for beautiful interiors and design, think Henredon and Ralph Lauren Home Furnishings..
I love to work with local real estate agents, business and individuals. My client list includes: Getty Images, Six Flags Discovery Kingdom, Vallejo Conventions & Visitors Bureau, Mustico Reality, Krystle Property Management, California Maritime Academy, Palm Harbor Homes in Dallas, TX and individual agents representing Berkshire Hathaway, Realty World and Re/Max.
Eric just started with Tour Factory last week. Here is his Tour Factory site.
I'd like to thank all the members of the PFRE Flickr group that make it such a valuable resource for learning and raising the bar on real estate photography. I continually hear from successful real estate photographers all over the world that report that this Flickr group has been key to their success. Anyone that wants their work reviewed can post up to two photos a day in the photo pool and group members will tell you what you need to do to improve your work. And you can get a variety of insights from the group by posting questions in the discussion group. The power and effectiveness in mass collaboration never ceases to amaze me.
Thanks to Aaron Leitz, a prominent Architectural photographer in Seattle for suggesting the whole idea of a PFRE Flickr group back in early 2007.
