Taku Homes is a real estate photography business of the South Puget Sound area. We strive to produce magazine-quality photography for the regional real estate market. We know our craft – we use flash photography and HDR techniques to create the most visually appealing images. We pride ourselves on our creative, reliable and responsive service.
We stand behind our work and reputation and cultivate long-lasting relationships. We show up on time and get the job done well.
Why are we called Taku Homes? Glad you asked! Taku is a majestic river in Southeast Alaska that transcends boundaries. Her headwaters are in British Columbia, Canada, her journey ends near Juneau, Alaska. The name comes from the Tlingit name for salmon, the language of an indigenous people of the Pacific Northwest Coast of North America.
About 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.
