We’re delighted to welcome to our team Darren Foley, who is joining us across Alexander & Co and Ella as a professional photographer. During lockdown, we took the time to look at the services we offer our clients, and how we can improve on this, and we truly believe that by adding a professional photographer to our team, we can add real value to our service, and ensure that we are showing the homes of our sellers and landlords to their very best. This is where Darren comes in.
Darren’s interest in photography started at a young age. ‘I studied photography at college,’ Darren said, ‘and then moved into the retail sector for 10 years. A couple of years ago I wanted a change in profession, and happened to see a job advert for a property photographer, which I decided to go for. I got the job, and haven’t looked back since.’
Whilst Darren is based in our Head Office in Bicester, he will be covering all of our branches, including Aylesbury, Dunstable, Buckingham, Winslow and Wing. Darren said ‘I love the variety of my job, getting to travel to houses in different areas. There’s a good balance of being out and about photographing houses and being in the office editing the photos, ready to go onto our website, Rightmove and Zoopla. You’re rarely in the same place twice, which makes it an interesting job, and no two houses are the same.’
It’s not just photography that Darren will be doing: he’ll also be able to draw up floorplans and EPCs, and we will be looking to add videography to our service too.
For more information on our photography suite, or to instruct Darren to photograph your home, get in touch with our teams today.
Welcome to our family, Darren, we hope you’re very happy here!
