HDR 2 The Training

HDR 2 The Training– June 24, 2009 at 7pm EST

The official photography webinar of RTV

Sign up for the next episode of The IMAGE

In April we held the IMAGE webinar about HDR (High Dynamic Range) photography. We had a lot of great feedback from this webinar including a couple exciting success stories I just have to share.
Jim Blue with BlueLaVa Media got fired up about HDR photography as a result of the webinar. Jim practiced his HDR techniques and hit the streets armed with another tool that has made his business soar. His photography is now in demand all over his market. Currently he has 20 tours scheduled for this week alone and is now scheduling tours for a week and a half out. Jim has also just recently brought on 10 new clients as a result of his HDR photography and continues to get phone calls from new clients every day as a result of his HDR photography. See samples of his tours on
Mike Thompson with Real Vision Studio contracted with VFM Leonardo to shoot virtual tours of 3 hotels. Having attended the webinar about HDR he decided to develop his skills and use this photo technique for these hotel tours. The comments he received back from Leonardo regarding his photography were, “Some of the best photography we have ever seen” and “We have never seen color in our pictures like this before.” Mike asked them how they would rate his photography compared with other professional photographers and they said, “We would rank you at the top of the list.” Wow, what a compliment.

We believe that HDR is very important for you and we want to help you grow your business. The IMAGE webinar HDR 2 The Training will be a free training course for you to learn the simple techniques of producing HDR images so that you, like Jim and Mike, can get the customers demanding your virtual tour photography. Join us for an exciting evening of training as we teach you the simple steps to create HDR photography.

The IMAGE webinar from last week about aerial photography was a hit. Our guests Robert Wicker, Mike Willett, and Douglas Meyers presented us with several options for capturing elevated aerial photos that fit any budget. If you missed this webinar make sure that you watch the recorded version to see how you can add these unique shots to your arsenal of products to increase business and open up new opportunities.

RTV at Choice Hotel Convention

RTV had a booth at the Choice Hotels International 55th Annual Convention that ran May 11th through the 13t at the Gaylord National Resort and Convention Center near Washington, DC. With over 5000 owners, general managers and other hotel staff members attending, RTV had a great opportunity to meet people looking for photography and virtual tour services. We came away with loads of new orders (more than we anticipated) plus we had a chance to meet organizations that own and operate large networks of hotels both within and outside the Choice Hotels brand names. RTV closed a number of exciting new deals involving multiple properties and have plenty of leads with people that want to pursue having an ongoing relationship with a trusted network of photographers to provide services throughout the US and Canada.

Besides all the new orders, the great news that came out of the convention was the overwhelming positive feedback I received from Choice Hotels management regarding the outstanding service and quality that the RTV and its providers have delivered to the Choice Hotel sites. They love our customer service and our flexibility to work with their properties. Further evidence of our growing relationship with Choice is the fact that we were informed at the show that Choice had finalized our contract for taking RTV services into Canada which represents another several hundred properties.

Thank you to all of you that have participated in the Choice Hotels program. RTV is continually gaining more and more momentum and look to have more Tour Track business coming your direction all the time!
