Kauai Real Estate Photography by Kristin Hoshino.

Swell Photography offers Kauai real estate and vacation rental photography. If you are a Kauai real estate agent, homeowner, architect, interior designer or are in the vacation rental industry, you know that having professional photos of your property can make all the difference in your business. Our goal is to present your space in the best light possible while maintaining the authenticity of the design.

Basic real estate photo sessions are generally scheduled in the morning, however additional dusk exteriors may be added to your package. Specialized architectural photography equipment is used, including tilt-shift and ultra-wide angle lenses. Natural light, strobes and software are employed in a delicate balance to create an image that feels the way you see a space with your own eyes. Images are delivered through an online gallery where you can download the images in a variety of sizes to suit your needs.
