This success story is just too good not to pass along to readers! Rusty Freeman (Rusty@Studio ZZZ in the PFRE flickr group) is a studio photographer that works in the LA area and recently got into real estate photography. Rusty is a regular blog reader and purchased both of my e-books and has been following the advice I give in the books and here on the blog. I was talking to Rusty this afternoon and he passed the following story along to me. These are Rusty’s words:
We are leaving in two hours due to a call from a property manager who rents high end resort property in Colombia, South America to enjoy a weekend shoot, yes this will be work, and not to make it better but got a call today from a stager who gave us a country club $4.5 mil house to shoot upon our return but she asked the owners are in need of their resort property on a island to shoot this month too. These leads came from a simple e-mail sent to stagers, now over 3 months back, still getting calls from it. Constant Contact advertising works. I am surprised at the referral’s between stagers and homeowners to us.
Maybe a new niche for Real Estate Photos I never knew existed a month ago, Resort Rentals, and Larry I have this all to your help !!! So, I will have a beer under the palm tree on a white sand beach this weekend just for you.
