Best Gig Harbor real estate photographer

   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.

Our Team

Mihael Blikshteyn
Owner & principal photographer

Mihael Blikshteyn

Hi. I am Mihael Blikshteyn, owner and principal photographer at Taku.

I have been a commercial and editorial photographer for over 10 years, specializing in real estate, construction, maritime and industrial photography.

I founded Taku Homes in 2016, a few months after I moved to Tacoma. I saw the need for a premium real estate photography experience in this region. A photography service that combines responsiveness, dependability, excellent agent and seller customer service, ease of booking and image delivery, friendliness and, of course, outstanding photography and video.

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.
