My Story

Every property deserves to be shown at it's best. All property presentation can benefit from quality images taken by professional photographers.
If you desire to achieve the best possible price in any market, then quality presentation, to the 'greatest number' of potential buyers is essential.

A picture is worth a thousand words; a list of features lacks emotion but an evocative image of your home can capture a buyer's heart.

As they say, you don't get a second chance to make a first impression. The quality of the presentation of a property is what creates the perception and it is this that drives any propspective buyer's view of value.


Hi I'm John Gin and I would like to maximise the exposure of your property with my photos by using the best light possible and by also capturing the most content possible.

I was born in Auckland and have lived in Auckland South for over 35 years. Married with 2 very energetic boys, they are our little triumphs in life, and nothing is more satisfying than watching them grow, whilst teaching them new things along the way.

Photography has always been a lifelong interest for me, but never took it on seriously until I joined up with the team at Open2view. The real estate side of things came about in 1997 when a couple of friends and I formed a syndicate which saw us buying rental properties. Whilst working fulltime as a Purchasing Officer at a manufacturing company, the rental properties were a sideline 'hobby'. Thus the interest in real estate was born!

It is a great feeling when clients praise your work and I strive to meet and exceed people's expectations with high quality work and of course a high standard of customer service.

Since joining Open2view I am always meeting people from all walks of life, and some even take the time to share with me 'colourful' stories about themselves and their life experiences. But what they talk about most is how they have enjoyed living in their house and I always enjoy putting their fond memories in a photograph:)

Some of my happy clients...

I have used Open2view for all my photos, floor plans and now 3D virtual tours for over 8 years. The 3D Virtual tours were an amazing tool during lockdown as people felt like they were actually at the house. It made the marketing and selling process much easier and more streamlined.
Open2view has a very professional team and I have created a great relationship with John Gin
