About this pro

How does your service stand out?

I am my own biggest critic. I’m never content with my skill level. This forces me to constantly hunt and search for ways to better my craft. This causes me to innovate. I was using Steadicam technology in 2006. I was the only one in Charlotte shooting real estate video this way. Now, in 2015, my competition has figured it out. I was learning how to fly drones (for the purpose of aerial video and photography) in 2011 when you had to build the drone from scratch, program the drone, and flying was extremely difficult. I practiced for years (alone) in an empty field and always flew safely. Now you can buy one off the shelf and everyone is "a professional" on their first day. Things I am working on right now will be the norm in 3 years. But I will be offering it sooner than my competition because I am an innovator, and not a follower.

What do you enjoy about the work you do?

Every day is a new challenge. New shoots, new websites. It's always fun because it's always evolving.

    Lake Wylie Mobile Home Community Sales & RV Park contacted AVT Marketing (Steve) to redesign the website and take current photographs on location. Steve was prompt, efficient, professional, knowledgeable, and accurate. He went out of his way to anticipate any questions we may have when he provided a morning of training for blogging on the website. We highly recommend AVT Marketing for a quality experience.

Q&A

What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
Every day, striving to be the best in my field. Innovating, stretching what is possible and pushing forward to do things my competition has not thought of yet.
Do you have a standard pricing system for your service? If so, please share the details here.
Pricing for real estate video/photography can be a little confusing because I have 4 tiers set up by square footage & plan selected. I created a grid so you can easily see it visually at http://www.avtmarketing.com/pricing/pricing-home/
How did you get started doing this type of work?
I used to sell real estate. I was a REALTOR from 2005-2010. I know the industry, I did my own photography and video for my own listings. I built my own websites which ranked on page 1 on Google and Yahoo. I was using video back when YouTube was only 240p and you had to pay a service to actually stream better quality video footage. I was the only one doing real estate video in 2006 because the cost was so high to host videos. Other agents started asking me to do video and photos for them. Now it's 2015 and I have the best clients in the city!
What types of customers have you worked with?
* Website design and development * Marketing Videos * Real Estate and Product Photography * Aerial Video and Photography
Describe a recent project you are fond of. How long did it take?
Just finished a website for 2 local artists: http://www.chelseaandsavannah.com. They've told me that they love their site and they are very excited about the functionality of the site (especially the calendar) that gives their customers the opportunity to sign up for classes and pay in advance.
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
Check their references. Ask to see samples of their work. If you are buying website or social media consulting services, check them out! Are they using these tools to promote themselves well? If not, how can they be trusted to market your business?
What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?
For video: Editing time after the shoot takes longer than the shoot itself. Be sure to ask your potential provider how long editing will take, and whether or not you will be able to make changes to it.
