"Alberto and Mia are exceptional people who bring to their work a level of creativity and clarity of vision that is rarely found in the realm of real estate photography. During my 29 years as a real estate broker I have worked with many photographers, but none have produced images of comparable quality and originality. Along with possessing considerable artistic talents, Alberto and Mia are dedicated professionals who are responsive, responsible and always a pleasure to work with. I just wish they lived in New York as I would love to work with them on a regular basis.Best regards,Deanna E.

"To me, Alberto and Mia stand out in several ways. Aside from being friendly and engaging (not always the case with photographers!), they are producing work that is well above the average for the industry. Their portfolio is among the best I have ever reviewed, and having worked with Alberto directly, it's clear to me that he can deliver this quality every time -- not just when conditions are perfect. That's the mark of a great photographer. Even more importantly, Mia and Alberto take photography as a craft very seriously - they are committed to attaining higher and higher standards of work, even when they're already exceeding clients' expectations. Their own personal standards are extremely high, and that shows in the photos. I like working with photographers who are constantly pushing themselves (and me) to be better and better -- and that's what Artez Photography does". ..."Alberto & Mia, I have a lot of respect for you and your work"SCOTT HARGIS PhotographerOakland,

“Alberto and Mia have turned their passion for art, design and photography into a successful business in real estate and commercial photography. They have certainly mastered the great images and great presentation part of the formula.”..."Wow, what's up, Nanaimo has become a hot bed of photographic creativity! I have to say your site is stunning! Your portfolio has some very stunning images and it is well presented."LARRY LOHRMAN - PHOTOGRAPHER AND PUBLISHERSEATTLE,

"I have had the pleasure of working with Mia and Alberto from Artez on several high end real estate projects over the past 4 years.Almost 80% of all real estate sales start online first, and as a marketing director in this industry, good photographs can take a client from partially interested to booking tours. I trust this team implicitly and have continued to recommend them to numerous clients over the years.Simply put: Artez photography has helped me sell over $25,000,000 in real estate.Anna DiFioreMarketing Director - Owner, Red Gun Marketing"Dear Mia and Alberto,The incredible photo’s you did for Qualicum Landing has allowed us to show in true form, the beauty and spirit of our development.

Hello Mia and Alberto, I wanted to take a moment in my day and let you both know how truly impressed I am with your level of quality finish photography. You are a first class company with client service first and foremost.As a #1 Realtor with Remax; I know what it takes to keep clients happy and it's with other like-minded professionals like yourselves that I am able to achieve high levels of client satisfaction. Without top quality photography I would not be able to represent my client’s property to their peak potential and capture the essence of a property, home and/or view. Thank you for helping me maintain "next level" property representation. It is so important to make a lasting, quality first impression. For a photographer to spent 2 hours at a client’s home to capture the perfect sunset shot shows the level of dedication to your craft and leaves an incredible feeling with my clients and me. Over the past 6 years I have only implemented professional photography in my listings and ONLY using ARTEZ PHOTOGRAPHY for the past 3.5 years. It’s easy to see why you are the best Architectural Photographers on Vancouver Island. The level of care and finish is outstanding and it shows with every picture. Through your company whether it is Alberto, Mia, Pam or Mandy that takes the photos it’s always out doing the last shoot.... I don't know how you do it! Wow!Keep up the absolutely outstanding effort and work. It does not go unnoticed and I hope this letter gives you some idea of how important you are to me, my clients and my business.All the very best to you and your family,Sean McLintock Personal Real Estate Corporation RE/MAX of NanaimoTop 100 RE/MAX Western Canada*#1 REALTOR, RE/MAX of Nanaimo DT**Career accomplishments RE/MAX 2009/2011/2012(250) 729-1766 Cell(250) 751-1223 Office1-866-895-3289 Toll Free1-866-914-3803 Toll Free FAXemail: Website:

To whom it may concern. This is a letter of reference and recommendation regarding the work of Alberto and Mia Dominguez of Artez Photography. My husband I have 9 vacation rental condominiums, as well as our home near Victoria, British Columbia. Of these, Artez Photography has (so far) done promotional photography on 3 of them. This includes our home which they helped us market when it was for sale. In the near future, they will be travelling to our properties on Kauai and Maui to photograph them. The level of professionalism, the attention to detail, and the effort to accommodate our needs have been, in our opinion, unmatched. We couldn’t have been happier with any of the work they have done, which has included still photography of the interiors and grounds, video walk-throughs, and virtual tours. Their ability to capture the beauty of the landscapes and accommodations as well as the practical functionality of our various vacation homes has been a tremendous asset in our successful marketing campaigns. We would not hesitate to recommend Artez Photography for any promotional work you are contemplating, particularly architectural studies. Their work for us has been near perfect and they are very pleasant and easy to work with.Here are some examples of their and Doug YellandEscape Solutions Vacation Rentals

"In the Real Estate world, 90% of the buyers look on line first to shop for their homes. If the photos are not good, they pass on to the next.

Alberto and Mia have that unique ability to capture the right angle, the best lighting, the unique perspective of every home. They make the home shine and show itself in the best possible.

"I first met Alberto Dominguez in 2006 as I was newly entering the real estate industry. It was my goal to ensure that my clients, when listing with me, were provided with the best marketing I could offer them, and a key part to that was incorporating Alberto’s photographic talent into the mix. I am proud to say that I am one of Alberto and Mia’s first clients in Nanaimo! Pictures say a thousand words and Alberto and Mia have helped me to say millions!! Always professional and caring. They take the time to ensure that my listings are represented the best they can be. No matter if the property is a $125000 mobile home or a Million Dollar waterfront property, the attention to detail is the same. My clients are always wow’d and thrilled when they see the pictures of their home as it goes on the market. These pictures are often given to my clients when they move on, as a keepsake. The internet presence has always been high end, and is again a valuable key to my marketing program. Alberto and Mia truly changed how real estate is viewed in Nanaimo and I am happy they are here!"Yours truly,Rosanna Duffy, REALTOR – Coast Realty Group Ltd (downtown Nanaimo)

“Natural Health Path Saunas are the Western Canada distributors for West Coast Saunas. In considering how to illustrate the ease of installing our infrared saunas we came up with a rather unusual request for Artez Photography for a virtual sauna installation. Mia and Alberto were more than up to the challenge. They developed a plan to integrate the installation points with appropriate photos in a Flash Point presentation of my husband Carl and I installing the sauna. Their professional approach put us so much at ease that we were able to look relaxed during the process and even smile! The final product resulted in a detailed presentation covering each step of the installation that was a hit at our recent West Coast Saunas conference. We recommend Artez Architectural Photography to anyone who is interested in featuring their business in the best possible light (pun intended). You won’t be disappointed.”Shirley KingstonNatural Health Path Saunas

Mia & Alberto,I had a call from a client today who was very impressed with the photography of their condo at Departure Bay. Mandy did that photo shoot for us and I explained how the Dad & the 2 daughters now take pictures and that they all do a great job for us. He went on and on about how the photographer really knew how to do the angles & heights etc. and I explained that Alberto taught them well. It is nice to be able to say that it doesn't matter to Dave & I who comes to do the shoot because you all do a great job for us. And not to leave out Mia back in the office who works her magic too.
