Meet Andy Gould: Real Estate Photography Pioneer

Mediamax Senior Photographer

Andy Gould didn’t quite invent real estate photography but he might as well have. He’s been photographing real estate listings since 1987. If you get a chance, ask him to tell you some of his hair-raising tales of from the days of black-and-white film and rushing to meet the deadline to get into the MLS book.

Yeah, remember when the MLS was a book?

Mediamax Senior Photographer Andy Gould has seen it all – from black and white to color film, from film to digital.

“I guess I’ve always been fascinated with photography,” he says. He started out with a Kodak Instamatic, spending his allowance on film developing, then eventually learning to do it himself.

These days he’s one of the best-known and busiest photographers in the business.

Here’s a luxury home tour he recently shot for RE/MAX Professionals, Elite Home Sales Team:

Gould studied architecture in college and says he’s always been fascinated by lighting.

“It’s a passion that I’ve applied to my work,” he says.

And how, his fans would say.

“I love Andy Gould,” says Erica Chouinard, owner/broker at RE/MAX Success. The way “he brings a room to life in a two-dimensional still – there’s just something about it.” Read more from Andy’s fans here and here.

Somewhere along the way he also acquired a passion for Hawaiian shirts – “my insignia, I guess.” Those shirts are comfortable and casual like him. But the casual exterior belies a drive to satisfy his customers and keep current.

“There’s new technology coming online all the time – learning how to use those technologies and blend these with years of experience is what makes a great architectural photographer,” he says.
