Maple Leaf Photography Home Tours

I recently started working with a few local Realtors to produce video/slideshow Home Tours for their listings. The video gives prospective buyers a walk-through tour of a home and the property. I typically feature the highlights of a home with sweeping video clips blended with a walking video tour of the best rooms in a home. The video also features still photos of the other rooms and property.

Modern cameras are advancing quickly and agents can take great photos with their Smartphone or compact cameras, but these cameras have their limitations. My professional equipment provides a much wider view of interior rooms and I bring in studio lighting equipment to even out dark areas of a room and make it look its best. When properly used and balanced with natural light, the studio lighting looks very natural, like warm sunlight filling the room. Each  photograph provided in the Home Tour package are color corrected and optimized for print and web use. On average 20-30 high resolution retouched JPG images are delivered to the agent.

The video is custom branded with agent and agency information and agent photos. I also create a separate un-branded version that meets MLS guidelines for use on their websites. I take care of hosting all the MLS videos on my servers. All you need to do is copy and paste a link into the MLS listing. I will also provide the agent branded original video files for you to download through Google drive. Agents can then upload them to a YouTube channel, Facebook or anywhere you would like to share the video.

Take a few minutes to watch the sample videos and look at the photos. I believe you will see how fifteen years of professional photography experience can enhance your listings. Packages start at $250 for a single property. I believe this product is a great value and can be used to feature homes in all price ranges, not just premium lake shore property.

If you would like to talk more about this get in touch anytime. Thank you.
