The Lightroom Class From The 2015 Convention Series Is Now Available

Lightroom is one of the most powerful tools in a virtual tour photographer's bag of tricks. The question is are you getting the most out of Lightroom? 

Beth Nixon, RTV's Lead Digital Imaging Specialist taught this informative class at our 2015 virtual tour provider convention in Orlando, Florida. From the feedback, we have heard she did a great job. We can't speak highly enough about Beth's photo editing skills. Her title is well earned, and she is a wealth of knowledge.

We have recreated the class she taught at the virtual tour provider convention into this informative webinar available for all RTV RPM members. You will learn powerful ways to create collections and use keywords to help organize your files. She also shares her workflow as she works through the development module within Lightroom all the way to the finishing touches in Photoshop. There is something to learn from this class whether you are new to the Adobe photography suite or a long time user.

If you aren't a RPM member yet we hope you will consider joining. There are countless hours of classes covering professional photography, virtual tour photography, post processing to marketing and much more. You will also have access to a large collection of virtual tour related marketing materials you are welcome to download and customize for your own virtual tour business.

As always we hope you enjoy this webinar. If you have suggestions for future classes or would be interested in co-hosting a show please let us know.  We'll be posting the 2015 RTV Convention Green Screen class here real soon so make sure you're on the lookout for that show!!

Finally, Please keep an eye out for our up and coming Tour Track 2016 webinar that we have teed up for next week.

Thank you again for all you do!

Sincerely,

Team RTV

New From RPM – Virtual Tour Affiliate Marketing Flier

Virtual Tour Affiliate MarketingThis month’s Virtual Tour Marketing  piece was contributed by Mike Stolte a fellow RTV virtual tour provider from the Houston, TX market. Mike Stolte attended The FORMULA 75 and was blown away by a potential new income stream that had been right in front of him for years and had gone unnoticed.

After watching the show, Mike created this unique single sided flyer that any RTV provider can easily use to assist with selling ads on tours. Fusion’s powerful affiliate ad marketing engine is capable of displaying several ads on your virtual tours in the lower left corner, and rotating them at any desired time interval. The images are clickable and take tour visitors directly to the advertisers website. Your paying advertisers will know that they’re getting visits, clicks, impressions and eyeballs on their ads the Fusion Affiliate Marketing system will send out a nice report that is similar to a virtual tour traffic report every week to advertisers showing how well their ads are performing.

We recommend that every RTV tour provider minimally advertise their photography business on their virtual tours and this practice is discussed heavily during the show. On the show, we also talk about recommended advertisers as well as potential sales scenarios.

We encourage that you watch The FORMULA 75 before attempting to sell ads on your tours and utilize this marketing piece.

As part of a continued effort to create the highest quality marketing pieces, we have created this in Adobe Photoshop, utilizing layers. This allows greater flexibility for the photographer. All of the flier colors, information and photos are completely customizable using a program that almost all photographers currently use.

Thanks for your support!

Editing a photo in post-production with virtual staging

Virtual Staging Software ExampleAs a real estate photographer in Albuquerque I sometimes shoot out of town up in the Sandia mountain range. This was a listing the agent had not seen before I shot it and the window curtains had not been hung correctly. Of course neither the realtor nor home owner were there and I hiked over 2’ of snow.

I proceeded with the photography shoot and got the dreaded email from the broker saying that she wished the curtains had been different. This would have been a 3 hour fix dealing with the drive, shoot and post. (more…)
