Real Estate

Eckard Photographic offers several services and products designed to make life easier for realtors on the go! Most importantly, we offer high-quality real-estate photography with fast turnaround. We provide headshots for realtors, whether it’s one realtor or a whole firm, and special advertising packages with Foothills Digest, a regional magazine dedicated to highlighting the beauty of the foothills of North Carolina. We also offer packages that allow realtors to give their clients a gift of a magazine or a full-year subscription at reduced rates. We can also design ads and even mini-magazines for your clients.


Today’s real estate market is fast-paced and the images you use to represent your properties are extremely important. Jon Eckard has worked with realtors, home builders, and architects for thirty years, and he is adept at getting excellent shots quickly and with noninvasive lighting. His turnaround time is short and he covers the foothills of North Carolina and beyond.

A typical house takes about one hour to shoot, and our turn-around time for editing the shots is generally 2 days, with a rush available for a small fee. Photographs are hosted in a private gallery that can be locked with a password, and each realtor is provided with one folder that holds all of their houses in individual galleries.

We’ll help you stand out from the crowd.

In parts of North Carolina, there are currently more realtors than there are houses on the market. Let us help you stand out, putting your best face forward. For individuals, we shoot headshots in our studio, but for firms, we can bring a traveling studio to you! If you have several photographs on a page, it looks much more professional if they all match, and we can make that process easy for you.

Many of your clients will find you because of your advertising. We can design your advertisements to your specifications, using creative concepts, high-quality photography, and aesthetic layouts.

Eckard Photographic also brings you Foothills Digest, a regional magazine dedicated to sharing the beauty and culture of western North Carolina. Focusing on what makes the region special, the magazine’s goal is to create pride in our communities and to show the world how beautiful the area is. We offer special advertising packages for our clients, as well as special subscription packages so that you can offer a year’s subscription as a welcome gift. Because the magazine highlights the region, they are an ideal gift for people moving into the area. Advertisers can also get free copies of the magazine they advertise in to share with their clients. This will both remind them of their realtor, as well as help establish pride in their new home and community.

We also offer additional photography services, like aerial photography.

According to some calculations done by multiple listing service (MLS) statistics, properties with aerial imagery are 68% more likely to sell than those without it. 

Additionally, “83% of home sellers prefer to work with an agent using drones.” That’s a fabulous return on your investment and on higher-end properties, you won’t want to skip this step.
