  1. Question... and not sure where to ask it... but since this post is about FAA Authorizations... I'll ask here. I received the following email from the FAA.... does that mean my authorization has been approved or its just to say it's moving through the system? Any idea when I would get a final response? Received the email on March 23rd.: "Thank you for submitting an Airspace Waiver request to the Federal Aviation Administration. This email is in reference to the application submitted on 2/2/2017 in the vicinity of KPSP. Your application is being processed. Request Number: 2017-XXXX-XXX-XXXX Please do not reply to this email address, it is a distribution mailbox only."
  2. I shoot a lot for real estate agents.... I also concentrate on high end properties (I shot a lot of little stuff to progress to where Im at). They usually have larger lots... so aerial is a benefit to them. I also use aerial as an ad on service.... most of my work/money is from shooting ground level. Not sure I could make aerial a business by itself. Real estate agents are a funny breed.... if you are good and reasonable prices, it will eventually come together. They work so much with referrals... one agent will see another agents work... and find out where they got it done. And remember, there are a lot of Realtors... but only a small percentage are Sellers Agent... the Listing Agent. Because it also takes a lot of work on their part to get the listings.... and money (photography, marketings, etc.). Go after the agents with five ore more listings. Do a few free shoots to show them the benefits.... especially if they have a lot of listings.... and always deliver more than they expect. Below is one I shot last week.... again, I also did ground level interior and exterior.
  3. I absolutely love everything about your 2016 reel... to me it's perfect !!
  4. I love the footage.... but not to sure on the music. Probably won't make a difference on getting clients.... just my opinion.
