When it comes to shooting homes, Emile Rafael takes it to the next level. As a real estate photographer and videographer, I see the potential in shooting videos for agents; the only problem is they don't typically want to pay much, and they need things turned around fast. This is something where the agent could be taking a risk and receiving a quality product, but it does not seem to be so common.
Emile found his way around this obstacle by shooting with architects. What a genius. Architects, like artists, appreciate the work they do and want to have a memory of that. By hiring someone to shoot a video, they can see what they created, be taken back to it, and admire what they have done. When Emile shoots it, they are able to connect with themselves as they speak about what they created, why they created it, why it works, and much, much more.
This type of video would usually be boring to the common viewer. What do they care about this architect and what they created? Emile is able to eliminate that thought as he pulls you in with his unique, simple, and beautiful shots. He uses subtle music, movement, and light while he pairs that with a voiceover of the architect. By doing this, he is making this video something special for anyone watching. His videos, unlike most others, really influence me to work in a similar way. He has a different perspective than most of us do, but is able to use it in a beneficial way.
As a creator, you can do the same thing Emile does. If you can put your time and effort into learning how to do something, if you can get really good at doing it, you can be that person who influences others. Be yourself, find your style, and think big, because nothing is impossible.
