Drew Lankes

Drew grew up in Austin, acting and making short films. He studied film and puppetry at the University of Texas, which led to a two-year career in Los Angeles as a Production Designer. Drew comes from a family of photographers – his brother Matt is a commercial photographer and their father Tom Lankes shot for over 35 years for the Austin American Statesman.

Absolutely love Drew’s pictures and how fast he was able to process them 🙂 I will request for him again in the future!

Drew did a fabulous job at glenwood. freaking awesome. added some stuff that he thought was needed as i wasn’t there so i left it to him to decide. colors and aperture were just dead on. he is cognizant of leaving stuff you don’t want seen in a not perfect house out of the frame. he was badass. thanks again!

Wow! Great job Drew. Beautiful

My sellers are so pleased with the photos. They look beautiful. Will you please thank Drew for me?

Such a nice guy and talented photographer!
