Taku Homes is the premier South Puget Sound commercial and residential real estate photography, aerial drone and video business.

We are based in Tacoma, Washington. We work in Port Orchard, Bremerton, Gig Harbor, Tacoma, Puyallup, Lakewood, Lacey, Olympia, Federal Way and up to SeaTac.

I am always impressed with Taku Home’s ability to capture the essence of the listings my team represents. Not only that, but [Mihael] has been willing to work with the sellers if they see something they want to edit, reshoot, etc. Mihael is amazing to work with.

About Mihael Blikshteyn

Mihael Blikshteyn

I am the founder and principal photographer at Taku Homes.

I have been a commercial photographer for over 10 years and founded Taku Homes in 2016. I specialize in real estate, corporate, maritime and industrial photography.

I am passionate about editorial storytelling as well. My images are used to further the causes of the World Wildlife Fund, the PEW Charitable Trust, Wild Salmon Center, United Way, Real Change Homeless Empowerment Project, Housing First and other conservation, cultural and social justice organizations.

In my first career spanning 15 years, I was a conservation and research fishery biologist. I have keen interests in fisheries, maritime, conservation and social justice issues and visual storytelling.

Born in St. Petersburg, Russia, I grew up in Russia and New York City, and spent a decade working and living in Alaska. By way of northern California and Oregon, I settled in the South Puget Sound, Washington area.

My passion in life is visual storytelling. I craft a life that is a story worth telling.
