SAN FRANCISCO, CA - Local photographer James David Lee has joined Zephyr Real Estate as Lead Photographer. After free-lancing for 10 years and with a strong background in real estate photography both in Southern California and the Bay Area, Lee is filling Zephyr’s need for a full-time photographer. As Zephyr continues to expand its reach into the Greater Bay Area, the need for high quality, quick-turnaround photography has grown exponentially. Lee’s expertise includes more than three years with Pacific Union as Marketing Manager where he was extensively involved in multi-media marketing/advertising and training as well as building the photo/video libraries. Prior to that, Lee was employed in Southern California by a Beverly Hills boutique realtor and Coldwell Banker’s Beverly Hills-South office. He also has several years’ experience as a free-lance photographer specializing in real estate, architecture and lifestyle. “We are fortunate to have someone of James’ caliber join our team,” commented Melody Foster, Vice President of Marketing. “As we grow, it’s important that our photo and video libraries grow simultaneously for the mutual benefit of our agents and clients.” Lee received a degree in Fine Arts with a concentration on creative photography at California State University in Fullerton. He enjoys cycling and Mid-century furniture plucking with his family in Oakland.
