A friend and I noticed a reference on the Internet to “Zillow Certified Photographer”. So we just spent the last 30 minutes on the Internet trying to find anything out about this with no answers, just Everbrite invites to locations in the US on dates that have past. They show workshop at hotel locations in Virginia Beach, Dallas, Phoenix, Atlanta having these workshops to get this certification but no other info. We even look ALL over Zillow’s site and use other search terms to see if we could find anything else out – hoping you might know where to direct us or if you know anything about this “Zillow Certified Photographer”.
I’d never heard of a “Zillow Certified Photographer” either and until just a while ago I had no clue as to what that might me. I noticed a clue to what it is in the intro text for an event that when on 7/27/2016 in VA Beach. Notice in the description of the even it says. “Learn about our latest release – video walkthroughs – and how they can help photographers get free advertising to Zillow’s network of real estate agents.”
So my guess (totally a wild guess) is that they are releasing a new video walkthrough capability that will allow agents to have professionally shot walkthroughs on their Zillow listings.
Has anyone been to a Zillow certified photographer meeting and know what the details are?
