About The People Behind The Lens

John Shum started Real Exposure Photography with his wife Karen Nepacena over 15 years ago in Boston, MA. Initially, the couple focused on special event and portraiture-based photography.

Now based in the San Francisco Bay Area, John offers photography services specializing in interiors, real estate, and portraiture. Recent work has been featured in online publications ranging from Dwell and HGTV.com to Apartment Therapy and Domino. His mid-century modern photographs have also been published in Atomic Ranch Magazine. Past clients also include Fortune 500 tech companies, wedding magazines such as The Knot, and various global home design publishers.

Interior Photography Services

For designers, publishers, homebuilders, and architects – photography services offered include high-end photo sessions at half and full-day rates. These sessions are geared for photographs at a quality for publishing or professional portfolio. It’s a different style and finish and there is much more time spent on setup, styling, and editing to produce quality that will appeal to an editor.

Half-day photography rates starting at $1,000 to include:

  • 3-4 hours of coverage
  • 2-3 spaces (Eg – Exterior, kitchen, living room, bathroom, etc.)
  • 12-24 photographs delivered edited

  • 6-8 hours of coverage
  • 5-7 spaces (Eg – Exterior, kitchen, living room, bathroom, etc.)
  • 30-40 photographs delivered edited

Twilight Session: $350

As an add-on to a package, another session can be focused on capturing the glow of.a home just after sunset with the interior & exterior accent lights on, which produces stunning deep blue skies for the shot. Time only permits 30 mins to get one to two main shots.

Styling starting at $350 for half-day, and $500 for full day.

  • Arranging of existing decor and furniture
  • Additional fees for ideal accessories needed

Real Estate & Airbnb Photography

For real estate and rental listings targeting homebuyers and renters, this type of photography conventionally takes shots of the home as-is, and will be edited to provide listing brochure ‘pop’. Stagers and/or homeowners should have the space camera-ready.

Listing photography rates start at $600 for a full home which includes:

  • 3-4 hours of coverage
  • Entire home coverage
  • 30-40 edited photographs

Twilight Session: $350
