I’m John Eder, and Marker 4 Photos is my company, making architectural and property images.
Marker 4 Photos is based in Naples, Florida, where I grew up. I'm a graduate of Naples High. I took off as soon as I graduated, first to NYC, then LA. I had a long photography career in both those places. I recently moved back to my home town, and started Marker 4 photos, named after a marker in Naples Bay, which was the namesake of a fabled Naples restaurant of my youth, Pate's Marker 4.
I came to this genre of photography pretty late - I've done mostly portraiture my entire career, and if you'd like to see that work it's at johneder.com
At first, I thought: oh, this will be easy - but it's not, much to my chagrin. I've learnt all sorts of new techniques and software, and had to get an FAA certificate to fly a drone. As I've gotten more and more into it, I find I get a little photo thrill out of getting (hopefully) the idea of the building captured - like, what the designer was thinking, how they want it seen and lit. I'm learning new stuff all the time.
