Photos: Animal Real Estate Photobombers


An important part of real estate photography is the ability to showcase a property in it’s setting and portray the lifestyle it affords to a potential buyer. Often while our photographers are busy at work capturing this, they get some curious bystanders coming in for a closer look! Here are some of our favourite animal photobombers we’ve captured while out on the job….

While your humble blogger slaves away in his (admittedly pretty sweet) office, the real fun is had out in the field by our Open2view photographers. It’s not every day of course that they get to visit and photograph an animal park – but that’s what our lucky Bay of Plenty/Waikato photographer Alta got to do recently!

Marshalls Animal Park just outside Tauranga is, according to their website, “35 acres of friendly animals and fun.” It is indeed host to a friendly and eclectic line up of critters including Tibetan yaks, five kinds of deer, Shetland ponies, llamas, shire horses and chinchillas.

And it could be all yours; after 20 years the owners are thinking of having a well-deserved break and are taking expressions of interest right now.

Alta – who you can also follow on Twitter – clearly had a ball taking these photos. Enjoy them (and check out the listing on our website) while I go work out what exactly a chinchilla is.
