A bit about Wasim Muklashy, your premier Bend Real Estate Photographer.
Wasim Muklashy is your property photography specialist, servicing all your Bend real estate photography and commercial property photography needs.
In addition to his award-winning nature, travel, conservation and fine art work, he has produced images for Samsung Camera as an official Imagelogger, virtual reality video for Superswell VR, a VR production studio he co-founded, and has been photographing high-end homes and properties for local real estate and property management companies, as well as popular vacation rental service Airbnb, for the better part of this decade.
Wasim is a Zillow Certified Photographer, official Airbnb photographer, Google Trusted Photographer, Part 107 Federal Aviation Administration Certified Drone Pilot, and a member of the Houzz Photographer network.
Most recently, Wasim became part owner of Alpaca by Design, a retail store in Sisters, Oregon that specializes in alpaca product, and is one of the founders of The Original Alpaca Picnics Experience. Yes, a picnic…with alpacas. This was a direct result of life during, and after, the pandemic, in which Muklashy found solace through working with alpacas in Central Oregon with Amanda VandenBosch of Flying Dutchman Alpacas, one of the world’s premiere alpaca programs.
Wasim also spends much of his time documenting and sharing the world’s natural spaces through the visual medium. Through that lens, he has created photography and video assets for clients including the National Park Service, California State Parks, the World Forestry Center and Outdoor Project. He is currently working with various nature organizations in the Pacific Northwest on photography and virtual reality projects focused on our natural world with a goal of stoking the curiosity of a new generation of children by introducing them to the outdoors.
Additionally, he sits on the board of Ecology in Classrooms & Outdoors (ECO), a non-profit that brings ecology and science education to kids in under-served communities, and spends whatever time he has left documenting our outdoor spaces and the endless wonders of Mother Earth.
Before embracing photography full-time, Wasim began his career writing for various Primedia and Conde Nast publications before founding his own music and lifestyle national newsstand print publication. His attentive eye for detail and keen editorial sense led him to spend 7 years as a Senior Editor and Creative Director, producing and editing award-winning marketing and commercial videos, assets, and corporate media packages for Fortune 500 companies including General Motors, Mattel, GAP, and Warner Brothers.
Wasim’s valuable experience and proven work history has led him to absorb and understand the marketing needs of today’s culture and society, which relies very heavily on initial visual stimulants to capture the audience’s attention. He’s here to provide those services to you.

Yup…that’s a thing…
Wall Street Journal says:
Adding at least one photo to a residential-real-estate listing increases the final sale price by up to 3.9%, says Ken H. Johnson, an associate professor of finance at Florida International University’s Hollo School of Real Estate. “If I was selling, I would put every picture I could on the listing, at a ratio of four to five interior vs. one exterior,” says Prof. Johnson. “We’re talking about a few extra weeks in marketing time to get that 3% to 5% increase on a home. That’s a good trade.”
“Professionally photographed listings get booked twice as often as those without professional photography.”
