Downtown Durango from Smelter Mountain at Twilight

Stelio Media is owned and operated by Diane Zahorodny. She has been a professional photographer since 2000 and branched out into professional video in 2012. Over the years, she has managed two portrait studios, photographed families, children, weddings, events and commercial products as well as produced several instructional and promotional videos. Real estate and architectural photography were a natural fit for Diane’s easy going yet precise and detailed nature. Originally from Chicago, she moved to Durango in 2010 and hasn’t looked back.

"We’ve put a lot of thought into our equipment, education and processes so we can nail the shots, be in and out in a flash (pun intended) and deliver great imagery with a fast turnaround. Our primary goal is to give you what you need, when you need it and blow your mind in the process."

Diane, Owner and Operator


"We had a very unique home that we knew was going to be a challenge to portray effectively on internet sites and flyers. Diane’s photos captured the essence of that uniqueness in a way that caused almost every prospect to comment on the quality of our photographs. We are certain Diane’s photos were a major factor in our ability to sell our home, as a for-sale-by-owner, in 7 days at a price significantly above that suggested by realtors. Thank you, Diane."

"It was a pleasure working with Diane and the rest of the crew at Stelio Media on the recent video shoot of my listing at 53001 N Hwy 550. Diane consulted with me prior to starting the shoot to be certain they captured the scenes I wanted, and they used my feedback during editing to produce a great video. I'm very happy with the finished product, and I highly recommend Stelio Media to other real estate agents who wish to create professional and visually stunning videos of their listings."

"Diane and her team of professionals never cease to amaze me. Diane did two photo shoots for me recently on new listings, and on one listing I had multiple offers within two days of posting the listing, and on the other home I had an offer the next day - I truly believe a large part of the interest in these homes was because of the amazing photography work done by Stelio Media. Diane always takes her time when doing a photo shoot to make sure everything is perfect - definitely worth the investment in the presentation of your new listings."

"I had a $2M listing that was about 20 minutes from town and had a mix of updated and not so updated décor so I knew I was going to have to step up my marketing. I asked Diane at Stelio Media to take photographs and create a video which were delivered quickly and looked fantastic. As a result, the house went under contract in five days. It still amazes me, I get comments about the video months after the closing. I have no doubt that this investment is the reason for my fast commission. I will use them again and again."
