My name is Wayne Sclesky. I started shooting real estate while living in Miami, FL in 2006. Prior to that I was a focusing my talents on fashion & beauty photography. Life changes paths for us unexpectedly at times. I ended up back in Kansas City to be with my wife. Being back in Kansas City shooting fashion and beauty was not really an option. I put my time and effort back into real estate photography.
Realtors using professional photographers for photos was still in its infancy at the time. I was lucky enough to have a friend who had a friend that was an agent at a very large realty company here in KC. Over time I found myself becoming very busy. Word of mouth was my source of new clients. It came to the point that I was so busy that I could not take on any new clients. At the time I was shooting in between 1000 and 1100 houses a year.
That lasted until the beginning of 2017 when my wife and I decided to try something new and moved to rural Northern New York (Canada was only 10 miles from our house). At the time I was a bit overworked and probably did need a break. After a few months I really began to miss my work and clients, many of whom became good friends.
Being in a rural location there was little to no opportunity for real estate/architectural photography. After years of living rural we decided that we needed to be back in Kansas City. It is a great town with so much to offer. We went from the nearest movie theater being an hour and fifteen minutes away to one being about three minutes away!
Since moving back I had been shooting part-time and the rest of the time taking care of my son. Now he is old enough to stay home by himself I have the time and motivation to get back to shooting full-time.
So here I am again! Reigniting what I had built up before. My specialty is composition/lighting and finding the best angle to shoot rooms/exteriors/etc. Having shot over 7000 houses in my 17 years of doing this be rest assured that I will make you and your clients very happy.
