One year ago to this very day I competed with Mike Kelley to see who could take the best photos of the famous "Dome House" and I won. For 12 months Mike has been plotting his revenge and today, we meet again, at an even more extravagant home in Charleston.
In all honesty, this rematch came about extremely last minute. I ended up going on Zillow and searching for the most extravagant house currently for sale in the area and found 1926 Maybank Hwy. I called the number on the listing and to my surprise Ruthie Ravenel picked up. I told her who I was, and asked her if we could film this video at this house the following day. She called the owner and within an hour, we had been given approval to film for 6 hours at the house. If you have $6 million bucks, you should totally buy it. Tell Ruthie Lee sent you.
To make this competition a little more interesting, and to help pay the bills, we got three sponsors and seven products for this video. Mike and I would have to each use the exact same gear to take our images.
I'm not going to spoil what happens in the video but I will post both of our montages below. Can you guess who took which one?
If you enjoy architectural photography I highly suggest checking out the full length tutorials we've made with Mike Kelley at the Fstoppers Store.
