Real Estate Photography

Franck’s photographs display a keen eye for detail and light…Simply outstanding, and instrumental to the sale; we can’t begin to thank you enough ! Dave & Phil, Western Addition property owners

If you need professional photography, Franck produces! I am a real estate agent and take great pride in my property brochures and promotional advertising for web sites. I use Franck exclusively. His work is excellent; costs are reasonable; turn-around time is quick. He listens, makes great suggestions and handles my clients well. I find him a pleasure to do business with and most personable. Larry Stiffler, Herth Real Estate

I am writing to thank you again for the wonderful photographs you took of my house. My realtor was able to use your pictures in her promotion of my house which was for sale during this difficult market. The result of your appealing, while descriptive, photography as well as my agent's realty acumen and her hard work resulted in an immediate bid and the subsequent sale of my house. Thank you for your kindness, conscientiousness and photographic expertise. We are forever in your debt. John Kaye, Westwood Park property owner (November 2008)

Franck is a wonderful photographer. As a busy Realtor I often need photographs taken on short notice, and Franck is exceptionally punctual and very easy to work with. His pictures are high quality and he has the eye to make every property look like a million bucks. I would highly recommend Franck to any of my associates and clients. Mike Shaw, Herth Real Estate

Franck is a true professional who knows how to capture the best elements of any property in digital photos. We have used him for a larger, unique home and a smaller, plain condo...and he has produced superior results. He gets his work out very quickly and provides a "proof sheet" that makes it easy to identify the different photos. In addition, he is a very pleasant person to work with! Jim Touchstone, Broker Associate, Herth Real Estate

I have been a Broker in San Francisco for over 30 years. Franck Avril did an exceptional photographic job of my listing and he did it promptly which allowed me to have my brochure ready for my first open house. I would not hesitate to call upon him again to photo-shoot my future listings. The quality of his work is incomparable. I was impressed; however, more importantly, my client was exceedingly pleased. Peter Fatooh, Broker Associate, Coldwell Banker

Prints, Calendars and Photo Cards

Franck has been an incredible find. His photographs have taken my business to the next level. His award winning photos have brought national attention to my business. The quality of Franck's work and his attention to detail is unmatched. His photos speak for themselves. Franck works relentlessly during the photo shoots. He crouches behind his camera for hours in the hot sun, always full of good humor. After a shoot, he produces proofs for me to review almost immediately. They always look great! Dan Pearson, Dan's Dahlias (Oakville, WA)

All of our calendars are slightly different. And I tend not to "sneak a peek" at my calendar pictures for upcoming months. But I've just turned the page for February, and my February picture is absolutely breathtaking!! B…, I can't thank you enough for getting these for us. H. Canafax, San Francisco

[from -- forum:Dahlia] Thanks to you, Poochella ! I found this site searching for a certain dahlia photo scarce elsewhere on the web. Wow- this guy has some beautiful work. Guess where I ordered my Christmas cards from? Hmmm? They were here in 2 days and so carefully packaged I practically had to take the 'fruit secateur' to the tape and bubble wrap to get at them! … Very high quality goods and you can judge the photos for yourself.

[from] I will add thumbs up on courtesy, prompt mailing, and superior packaging for Mr. Avril as well. Issaquah, WA

As an artist, Franck leads our vision to the poetic side of the subject – with the inner view joined to the outer view, he obtains an extraordinary art work. His work is beautiful and inspiring to me, and a collection makes my heart beat faster. Dennis Schiller, Wemme Florist, Portland, OR

Thank you for the wonderful cards! We have enjoyed sending our friends artwork instead of ordinary cards. The care with which you helped us select the type of card (card stock, framed or to-the-edge) also assured that we had unique pieces that were more interesting than we could have created ourselves. This process enhanced the already magnificent photography. When we use up the cards we bought we will be eager to select others we will get to enjoy. Best wishes, Leslie Dashew and Jack Salisbury, Scottsdale, AZ

We were delighted with the big flower print we ordered to place in our entrance gallery by the piano. Sitting next to well known oil paintings it is striking, attracts the eyes and the mind. Also, well packed, promptly shipped, these are short term elements of added satisfaction. The rest, the quality and beauty will last way beyond the joy of receiving them promptly in good presentation. Thanks! C. & M.W.,AZ

I am thrilled and excited to be the proud owner of a number of your photos of irises. They are breathtaking in their beauty, and you are truly an artist with the camera. As you know, I am a painter of flowers, primarily of irises, and have used your photos as my inspiration to try and imitate nature’s own brush strokes. One can never of course duplicate on canvas what nature so effortlessly produces. Your photos on the other hand do in fact capture them in a moment in time. I wish to thank you for your photographs, and wish you much success in your photographic work. Your website is replete with your fine work, and it is there from where I found the irises. Sincerely, Rosa Leung Trombitas (
