I remember getting my first still camera at the age of 10. It was a simple Kodak Instamatic. It went with me everywhere. No one could keep me from capturing their image for eternity.
That little camera served me well until high school and I started taking some photography classes. Photography became a part of my life and I eventually became a photojournalist working at TV stations in Atlanta, Houston and Tampa Bay.
I got a chance to experience what some could only dream of doing. I had a lot of fun but eventually it was time for it to end. So what does a photojournalist do when the video camera gets put away after its final shoot? You go back to where it all started, with your trusty still camera. But it wasn’t enough. I still had the need for adventure. Since I hadn’t seen much of the left coast I decided to move to Palm Springs, California and do something really different.
One evening while searching the internet for a new home I came across this website called Real Tour Vision. This is where I first learned about virtual tours. I had already looked at a lot of homes online and not one of them had a tour. I asked my real estate agent why he didn’t use virtual tours and he said he didn’t think there was anyone doing Palm Canyon Virtual Tours. That’s all I needed to hear. It didn’t take long to put two and two together. This was going to be my new adventure.
Believe it or not, that was over a year ago. It’s been one of those “what else could go wrong” or “you’d never believe it if I told you” years. But that’s all behind me and I am now putting the finishing touches on my website and getting the rest of my marketing materials together and soon…very soon…Palm Canyon Media will be up and running serving the Inland Empire of Sothern California.
All of this wouldn’t be possible without the support from Team RTV, Jason LaVanture and many of the RTV providers from around the world. I may know a lot about photography but a year ago I knew absolutely nothing about the virtual tour business. You all helped me more than you will ever know. How? Through your BLOGS!
Everyone learns something new about their virtual tour business every day. You might not think so, but you do. By sharing that information in your blog, you have now made it possible for every other provider to know what you just learned. It’s called team work and that’s what makes RTV great.
When I was ten I didn’t know I would become a photographer. I didn’t know one day I would own a Nikon. And I sure didn’t know I would become an RTV virtual tour photographer! I think I have made some pretty good decisions in my lifetime. Let the adventure begin!
Thank you RTV!
