Lexington, SC Real Estate Photographer Achieves T4 Accreditation

T4 Photography Accreditation  It is a story we here at RTV have become familiar with. While shopping for a new home, Brian Hartley saw photos of property that were uninspiring and to put it plainly, amateur. These photos gave Brian the idea to start a real estate photography business, and he has been offering his services in the Lexington, SC market ever since. In a 2014 blog post, Realtor.com reported a study that showed homes listed with professional photography not only sold faster, but they also sold for more money.

Brian’s company Tourtheinside.com offers real estate agents, businesses, home owners and many others in his area, affordable, and easy access to professional real estate photography. Brian showcases the photographs he takes for his clients with the robust Fusion Virtual Tour System. Fusion provides seamless syndication of the virtual tours to appropriate third party sites such as Realtor.com, trulia, YouTube and many more. Fusion virtual tours are also easily posted onto social media sites like Facebook with the click of a button.

As a T4 program Brian has passed a rigorous process to ensure he is producing quality photography, and has received training to perform Google Streetview for Business shoots. We are confident that clients who contact Tourtheinside.com will receive the highest in quality and service in the industry.  If you are looking for photography in the Lexington, SC area give Brian a call at 803  348 7992. Congratulations on achieving T4 photography certification. We are proud to have you on our team!

The FORMULA 76 – Your Section 333 in 1-2-3 – Fly Legally in 2016

Drone virtual tourHello RTV! Get out your notebooks and grab that cup of coffee because it’s FORMULA time again. That’s right The FORMULA 76 is coming to town and we’re going to literally CRUSH the section 333 waiver topic on this one hour live event. On this show we’re going to put to bed some of the all too common misconceptions regarding acquiring a section 333 waiver from the FAA. We’re also going to review the ins and outs on who can operate your bird once you’re legal.

The process could not be easier and if you recall our panel from the last show hosted by Ben Knorr then you’ll remember that we had an attorney on that show willing to get your FAA waiver for your company for the low-low price of only $3000.00!!! Well the good news is that we’ve since found ANOTHER “Legal Eagle” that has now helped over sixty providers secure their waiver. Ready for this? He’s offering the complete FAA filing submission to RTV customers for only $699! The turnover is incredibly fast too.

We know that there are so many of you confused about this process; where to start, how to go about finding your pilot, which drone to get, how to register your commercial bird, how to insure yourself, how to price this out with your tours and photography and more.  Make sure that you come to this show so we can get your questions answered. Those of you with existing questions please email info@realtourvision.com before the show and we’ll try to make sure we address your question during the live event. Be sure to include your name, location and website in your email along with your question.

We remain confident that this will be the show that clears everything up for you and gets your company offering Drone Photography right away!!  Get ready to open up what is going to be your most impressive income stream in 2016 with the HIGHEST and QUICKEST ROI.  Start selling what’s in demand!

See you there RTV.

Exciting New Changes To Tour Track National Photography Service

National-Photography-NewsHello RTV and welcome to 2016! We have some exciting news about changes we are making to the Tour Track program this year. Tour Track is transitioning to a Shoot & Deliver method for all national photography accounts. Moving forward all new dispatched orders will instruct you to shoot bracketed images in a RAW file format and deliver the images inside specific file structures via our FTP. You will no longer be required to process images or build tours. Here’s a little background on this: In 2015, the Choice Hotels CHERP initiative gave us a great opportunity to grow, not just through the number of orders that were placed, but by compelling us improve the overall quality of the work we deliver to our clients. Throughout the past year we have adjusted our instructions and procedures until we came up with a winning combination of shooting instructions, file delivery, and in-house processing. This has allowed our photographers to complete more shoots in less time and has given us greater control over the consistency and quality of the images we deliver. The success of that program has prompted us to change the process for all of our other national accounts. Shoot & Deliver orders will require our photographers to:

  1. Shoot in RAW format
  2. Bracketing either 3 or 5 exposures at ±2EV (number of brackets varies by account)
  3. Slating rooms and common areas (to assist with file organization)
  4. Filling out a sign-off sheet and listing image file numbers
  5. Organizing files in a predetermined folder structure
  6. Uploading via FTP
  7. Completing the order in Fusion to notify our team that images have been uploaded

  We would also like to offer you the opportunity to switch any existing order that to the new shoot and deliver method. In order to do this, a photographer must make a written request to RTV through the comment section in the applicable order. Please reach out to the Tour Track team with any questions you might have regarding this change at tourtrack@realtourvision.com. We are looking forward to a great year here at RTV!
