About Ken Fine

Ken Fine | Asheville Real Estate Photographer


My passion for photography began when my parents gave me a Yashica D medium format camera for my birthday. I immediately volunteered to be my high school yearbook and newspaper photographer which I loved, because my yearbook duties got me excused from a lot of classes!

After high school, I set my sights on a career in either electrical engineering, meteorology or music. So, naturally, after working for a while as a studio musician, I got my PhD in psychology. After helping people look inside themselves, I decided to change my focus to the outer world and ran my own entertainment booking agency before finally getting back to my roots with photography.

These days, I help real estate professionals, builders, management companies, designers and home stagers by applying my obsession with light, form, texture and composition to producing truly outstanding real estate photography. Each property that I photograph provides me with a unique and fun challenge as I strive to put my client's  properties in the best possible light!

REVIEWS

"If you list property and want to do the most professional job for your client I can tell you from experience to use Ken Fine as your real estate photographer. Properties that Ken photographs sell, they just do, because the biggest hurdle is simply getting buyers in the door. Ken does such a wonderful job making every home look polished and special, they stand out among listings where agents aren't investing in professional photography. I cannot recommend Ken more, he's great to work with and has been a game changer for my listing career. "
-- Rachael Giesenschlag, French Broad Real Estate

"We use Ken for almost all of the homes we stage. He has an amazing, artistic eye for making the homes, and our staging, look fantastic! Photos are the first impression of a home for sale and great photos are key to getting more showings so the cost of a professional is worth every penny. Ken is reliable with a quick turnaround, and I would recommend him highly to anyone needing to get their home sold."
-- Cindi S., Showhomes Western NC

"I have used many photographers and none come close to the work you do. Your lighting, angles, ability to capture a room in artful ways is amazing. You work stands alone. Thank you!"

"Ken's photos were the catalyst that brought the buyers to the house. They told me at closing - "the photos were awesome..." And yes, they were. His patience in taking each photo exactly right, waiting outside for what seemed like an hour for just the right evening light - walking through the woods down to the river - I couldn't have asked for anymore in a real estate photographer. Thank you, Ken!"
-- Esther Kane, Homeseller

-- Laura Monroe, Homeseller
"Wow, Ken. We’re blown away by the photos. Incredible. Are you sure we really live there? They are exquisite. Thanks for your work."
-- Jane LaFerla, Homeseller
