  1. I don't do many property videos. I recently agreed to shoot one for a neighbor. I think its a fascinating business and would be really challenging to do it well, profitably. I'm not sure I could accomplish that. I'm posting these for several reasons, I'm proud of the work we do, I'm interested in what others think, and probably most importantly I'd like to start a thread where people don't simply criticize but share their experiences so that as a community we can figure out better, more economical ways to produce this sort of video. There more to this challenge than just the drone, photography, cinematography, color correcting, editing and delivering. So there's ample opportunity to discuss technique etc.. This is the latest, this house hasn't been lived in for quite some time and it is mostly empty, so it was a challenge to make it look interesting. Because I did this for a friend, I experimented a bit with different camera's and drones. For the aerial I used a GH4, Autel and a MAVIC. I'll leave it to you to see if you can determine which is which. On the ground I used a Canon 5D3 and Panasonic GH4. This was my sisters house from four years ago. This is my first property video. What started me thinking about this thread was this: https://platinumhd.tv/?c=aa5b43e44f If your into producing property videos you should really check out their Showcase, they do some amazing property videos. Also. here's an interesting Blog/resource for photographers trying to make a go of producing property videos: http://photographyforrealestate.net/ Hopefully those interested in learning and sharing ideas how to build a business in real estate will provide feedback and insights on how your doing. Also, I don't produce property videos for a living. Occasionally I have the opportunity to shoot them and thought I would share my thoughts and experience. I have no agenda, I'm not selling these properties or anything else. If people want to talk honestly about what works, what doesn't and what can be improved then lets make this a thread for that kind of discussion.
  2. Good afternoon Alan Perlman & Company! Spring is officially here and with it comes blue skies, green grass and hopefully a lot of drone orders!! For RTV, this Spring also means some very significant system updates that we are super stoked to deliver and share back here in the group. Most notably is our new 1080 Adaptive Streaming. This update means some great things for UAV pilots as well as folks that do full-on walkthrough videos. Those interested in our full feature update and release video can review the entire update here in this Update Video Be sure to check out examples of our new adaptive streaming in action here - https://tours.bluelavamedia.com/164406 and https://tours.robertharveyphoto.com/809285 and https://fusion.realtourvision.com/700106 These are live examples. Some start out immediately with streaming video while others load up with still photos first. With Fusion, you're the director and the story of each home is told by you. You put all of your media from your photo shoot into one interactive player and deliver a branded and non-branded link to your customer. In addition to the significant bump in playback quality, we've also packed a nice "Marketing Punch" in our system by overhauling our weekly Seller's Reports - https://fusion.realtourvision.com/report/trafficreport-email.php?tourid=881108 just in time for the busy season! Customers now share a fancy weekly report via email with the realtor. This reminds them who their photographer and drone person is weekly with an impressive layout and killer stats. The Realtor then passes this on over to the seller and it acts as a nice weekly communication tool. There were several other updates that just went live. For the full list, you can watch that video link above or you can read about them here in our blog - https://www.realtourvision.com/2019/04/virtual-tour-software-updates-1080-adaptive-streaming-360-video-support-more/ The new 360 video support will surely turn some heads and we're excited to see what photographers and drone pilots do with that feature too! Finally and most importantly we've attached a photo for you to check out on this thread. See attached and say hello to a nifty device that we've been jokingly calling the Skywalker 4K. This device was made out of $30 bucks in parts so a drone pilot could walk a drone safely and professionally through a home. We will be making a "How To" video on this in a few days and posting the materials list and construction video back here so everyone that has an interest can also make their own. We just added an Interior Drone "Fly-Through" to our product offering over at https://www.BlueLaVaMedia.com and having something that looked both professional and functional was key for us. Since we have four drone pilots on our team spending several thousand dollars to gear each guy up was out of the question. So far the SkyWalker has been working out quite nicely! Here's a video that was created using the SkyWalker and a little "Drone Yoga" moves intertwined - Thanks for watching and we'll keep you posted as we complete this video and also as RTV rolls out more product enhancements and updates. Keep an eye out for our sexy single property website layout coming later this year along with our Aerial Drone Operator and Photographers Scheduling system all built into our hosting platform. Very exciting stuff to help our folks stand out and stay ahead! Sincerely, Jason
  3. Hi everyone! I am an architecture graduate currently working in Construction management. I passed the written exam for my FAA Remote Pilot License and am really dedicated to breaking into the drone industry as a career. My goal is to become a photographer/videographer with my Mavic 2 Pro. I'm naturally interested in providing services for architecture firms or construction companies given my education and occupation background but, I am very interested in getting into Real Estate and Inspections also. I've done research to find the proper training and programs needed for mapping/3D modelings such as Pix4D and Drone Deploy, however, I soon found some of these services will require a Surveyor's license or license Surveyor to sign off. I am now confused, I see many drone operators providing these mapping and 3d model services but, am not sure if these they are licensed, surveyor. Am I missing something here? Can someone please clarify this for me? I want to provide my construction company stitched mapping and 3d model services but, don't want to put my company or my self at risk when I do not have a surveyors license. Also, please provide some insight on real estate or inspection work if you are knowledgeable or experienced in this type of work. Thank you so much for taking the time to read me questions.
  4. I am especially interested in Drone / Real Estate related opportunities and uses.
  5. This is a question and not an answer. Also, it is not a challenge to real estate drone photographers, but rather a possible opportunity to illustrate the ways in which they are useful that most people would miss. I'm just curious about what added value a home buyer or real estate buyer would get out of drone media taken of their potential property? What should they be looking for in drone media that they could not see in any other way? For example, what does the neighbor's yard look like? Roofing flaws? Proximity to railroad tracks and busy roads? Proximity to industrial parks? I would like to see an article outlining the special benefits of drone media to the home or real estate buyer. These answers could also be useful to news media drone photographers as well. What could the reader look for in drone photos that they would not think about finding any other way?
  6. Hello there! I recently bought a DJI Mavic Air after I absolutely fell in love with flying several "toy" drones. They were so much fun and I saw just how much potential they held in terms of content creation (video, photography). I finally pulled the trigger and bought the Air Fly More Combo and absolutely love it! Unfortunately, I now realize that, to get the most out of its 4k capabilites, I now need a better PC (the wife disagrees). The laptop and older "Home office" PC just don't cut it when it comes to 4k video editing. At the moment, it is purely for fun and to improve my skills. Eventually I would love to attempt some real estate video/photography work for some extra income. It would be great for it to eventually become something more full time or even lead to a career/location change as well! My area doesn't seem to have much of a drone culture or industry (a little in ag) so any advice would be greatly appreciated! -Marty
  7. I apologize, as I am sure this topic has been covered many times before. After my searches in the blog, I haven't really found a good answer. So I am starting this topic in hopes to get some great articles that are very informative but not "hire me because I'm certified" approach. I currently have a Real Estate Broker that is using a non-licensed pilot for their aerial photography. I just want to begin educating this potential customer of the risks and possible penalties of hiring a non-licensed pilot. I understand the risk and possible penalties...just don't know how to get the word out with being rude or to blunt and forward. Do you any of you have some articles that you send to your customers? How to you all approach this?
  8. very excited about learning to fly, Hoping to venture into a career change as I get older and hopefully wiser. I have flown a mavic pro and a Inspir 1 under the supervision of a 107 pilot. I loved it! looking for others who I can learn from and just enjoy the ride (from the ground of course). I am taking the 107 test Friday the 17th of Aug.2018....I feel very confident because I invested in a course from Remotepilot101.com, I have also taken multiple practice test and have performed very well, so here goes!!!
  9. This was one of the first very opulent home we were able to film. Have to say I really enjoy doing real estate work more than I thought. You can make some decent money if you get a couple of shoots a week. Heights Aerial Media offers 24-hour turn around time on New Jersey aerial photography. Realtors were very satisfied with our work. Let me know what you guys think.
  10. Aloha gang! I'm back with another outside-the-box video project & happy to share it. This is a property listing video, using an on-camera interview approach to tell the story. I won't belabor the description with words, just let the video do the talking. Enjoy!
  11. New to the drone community. Located in Longwood, Florida in Metro Orlando Area. Would like to network and communicate with others in area or wherever!
  12. Hi All, Been compiling some recent footage and thought I'd share. Appreciate any thoughts, input, etc. Of course, feel free to subscribe to my YouTube as I hope to continue to post more videos in the future. Thanks for checking it out! Cheers, Adam
  13. Those of you getting suited up to sell and market to real estate agents, home builders or developers should take some time and review some hard-hitting stats that you can include in your marketing materials. For BlueLaVaMedia pieces we simply google "Professional Real Estate Photography Statistics" Keep in mind that professional still photos are at the very core of selling to realtors. Realtors MUST have still photos to list and sell properties. So...you have something that they must have in order to even put the listing on the MLS (multiple listing service). To get started I recommend that you memorize a few of these https://www.google.com/search?ei=Q9SdWprgKtH2swXW7rrwDw&q=professional+real+estate+photography+statistics&oq=professional+real+&gs_l=psy-ab.3.0.35i39k1l2j0i20i263k1j0l7.2803.11347.0.12971.52.33.10.0.0.0.202.3330.19j10j1.31.0....0...1c.1.64.psy-ab..15.35.3123.6..46j0i7i30k1j0i131k1j0i46k1j0i67k1j0i131i20i264k1j0i20i264k1j0i20i263i264k1j0i10k1.106.2dllit3Yee4 hard hitting facts. When you make your real estate packages, consider making them with still photos at the very base of everything since they must have these. If you can get the still photography work AND the drone work you cannot be eclipsed by a real estate photographer who gets their 107. Make yourself bulletproof in 2018!
  14. Aloha fellow pilots, Today I'm sharing a cinematic property video that's all about the bells & whistles. This is an oceanfront luxury home on Maui, with so much style and class, it was difficult to choose what stayed in the video and what didn't. Enjoy & Mahalo for viewing!
  15. Every time I shoot in Kihei & Wailea, I imagine myself living there. It's good I don't really have millions, because I'd be broke already! This property is no exception to the habit.
  16. Occasionally, a client requests exterior-only aerial video work. These can be fun and sometimes challenging, especially when the property is tightly covered in foliage, not very large, and located along the 2nd windiest bay on the planet. Even the calm days are breezy here!
  17. Great to see all the interest in what is certain to become a vital business. Aerial photography is important to Real Estate. I am the owner of Ocean Discounts. This is a full featured UAS and we offer inexpensive drone opportunities for anyone interested. For Realtors, the final cost is passed to the seller and collected at closing. There are no out of pocket expenses for the agent. Every flight is continent upon a site evaluation and weather conditions. See our website for more information: www.ocean-discounts.com
  18. Aloha pilots! Thought I'd share a video from back in the early part of the year, which features 3 homes on a single lot inside of 1 minute. It was a fun challenge, and the video moves quickly, but it worked out in the end. Enjoy, and Mahalo for viewing!
  19. Hello fellow flyers! Just sharing a short video of our home, all shot by drone. Thanks for watching!
  20. Here's my latest work at showcasing a fairly simple 1 bedroom condo in the heart of Wailea. Had a fun time in post with this one. Aloha!
  21. My interest in drones is two fold: real estate inspections for my day job as a public adjuster, where it s helpful to have a picture of wind/rain/fire damage to a roof or multi story building, and for my interest in amateur radio, where drones are helpful in putting antenna wires up in trees in remote locations, especially for low power (QRP) transmissions. This is quite useful for both camping and also for emergency operations, especially when I volunteer for radio support of the Red Cross. Radio Call Sign: K9MBA, Amateur Extra Class.
  22. Here's my most recent effort at producing a property video. I hope you enjoy.
  23. Hello UAV Coach Forum, I've been reading the forums for a while now and have benefited greatly from the information. Received my 1st airspace authorization a couple weeks to operate in Class D Airspace near Santa Monica Airport and have been ramping up my real estate work. Looking to learn more about 3d mapping and different drone applications for architecture, real estate and construction industries. I currently work full time for a real estate agency doing all their videos - (Would love any feedback) Big thanks to Alan and everyone at UAV coach for cultivating such a helpful community. Cheers! Cameron
  24. Hi, I am new member of the forum. My name is Rehan Qadri. I am clinical technology analyst and work for GE Healthcare. I am also a professional photographer and cinematic video creator. I have been using drones for aerial footage for variety of use cases i.e. realty, weddings, documentaries, and resorts marketing. I am here to learn and improve my skills from fellow UAV enthusiasts. I am currently using DJI Phantom 3 standard and planning to upgrade to either a Mavic or Phantom 4. I am lookimg forward to some tips and recommendations for my next upgrade. Thanks.

  25. Hey everyone! I'm Justin, and I've been in the industry since early 2014. I started a company called Digital Sky with a guy I met who had a lot of experience in film production (as my background is in commercial flight). We had a phantom 2 with a gopro, and away we went. Since then we've come a long way, we've gone full time, and even have employees. We like to think we're the most advanced drone service provider in the state of Nebraska, and we work in multiple industries, including real-estate. Over the past three years I've learned quite a bit about what it takes to run a drone business, and I'm hoping to make that a bit easier for those of you who are looking for help with some of the more annoying parts of it all, including onboarding new clients and scheduling work. I've developed a software platform that is map based, and makes it easy for your clients to request the exact type of work they're wanting exactly where they want it. It also automates a lot of work like estimating price for jobs, developing proposals, and even handles some client communication and invoicing. We've got quite a bit of it built, and right now we're trying to gauge community interest with an expected launch to the general public in September. If you wouldn't mind taking a look, check us out at www.schedudrone.com and if you think it's a cool idea, let us know by signing up! Signing up doesn't cost a thing, and is a great way for us to know if we should keep doing what we're doing! Thanks!
