With professionalism and an artistic eye for what makes the perfect picture, AJ Canaria is the creative director and executive brand ambassador at Inside Real Estate. He formerly served as creative director for PlanOmatic, a national real estate photography and floor plans provider.
“I am one of real estate’s storytellers and connectors,” says Canaria. “One of my storytelling mediums is photography.”
Canaria is perhaps most recognized in the industry for photographing a host of real estate events across the country with groups like Leading Real Estate Companies of the World, RISMedia, Tom Ferry, and brokerage and technology partners.
Although it wasn’t real estate related, Canaria considers one of his biggest achievements of 2019 to be when he photographed award-winning singer/songwriter and actor Josh Groban at the Red Rocks Amphitheater and the star showed the image on ABC’s popular TV show “Good Morning America.”
“I’ve always dreamed of shooting on the biggest stage, working with one of the most talented artists and sharing the moment with people I love,” says Canaria. “The real estate industry has been my training ground, and I was able to take a similar photo on stage with Tom Ferry and at the WPJBF Sotheby’s event.”
Before joining Inside Real Estate, Canaria was with PlanOmatic since 2013 and served various roles, including regional account manager, executive brand promoter and creative director. However, he says his personal portfolio, available at ajcanaria.com, is what really tells his story.
