Taku Homes just did an amazing job on a photo shoot we had him do on a new $899,000 home listing. His attention to detail and eye behind the camera are amazing. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for high quality photography.

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.
