Congratulations to Ollie Paterson from San Diego, CA, who has won the March/April 2019 PFRE Videographer of the Month Contest! Here is Ollie's winning video.
Here's what Ollie had to say about his winning video:
Thanks so much to PFRE, the judges, and everyone involved in the competition. It is a huge honor to be part of a talented group of videographers.
About me... I've been shooting real estate for about 2-3 years now, mostly in San Diego. I started shooting low end properties and just kept at the grind until I started landing more high end clients.
About the shoot... I've shot this style of video a couple of times for this particular client, which makes things a lot easier. We basically have a rough concept before the shoot, I plan a shot list of sorts, show up in the morning, and start shooting. I like to keep things simple and let the day unfold; I find it creates a good collaborative and fun vibe. Generally, I try to shoot early morning and late afternoon so we have good natural light. I keep the other parts of the day for stills or other shoots. It is all shot on the Canon 5D MK IV with the 16-35 f/2.8 for the most part.
I want to say thanks to a bunch of real estate creatives for inspiring me. Mike Kelly, Wayne Capili, and Scott Hargis (the workshop you guys had was invaluable), Pierre Galant, Rich Baum, so many YouTube channels, and many more, thanks for all your help.
Thanks to PFRE for your wonderful resource and community.
