About Us

Based in Scottsdale, Arizona, Photography by REALM is a commercial photography studio specializing in architectural, editorial and luxury real estate photography. Contemporary buildings, boutique hotels, restaurants, and urban spaces inspire us. Our work highlights architectural design and composition while highlighting our clients’ brand and delivering a compelling message.

Photography by REALM combines the talents of two photographers, Connie White and Steve Schettler, to offer a different perspective and style. Connie goes beyond the technical side of photography, bringing her indescribable vision to highlight the uniqueness of each project. This visual element is a gift; when she sees a space, the images evolve. Steve’s technical savvy is lighting and knowing how to accent a space by adding or subtracting light. He also remains current on the latest technology in this ever-changing photography industry.

When not photographing, Connie and Steve love to travel and experience all the colors and flavors the world has to offer. Make no mistake, they always have a camera in hand!

Photography by REALM is the commercial division of CWLIFE Photography LLC, established in 2004.
