The Art of Real Estate Cinematography

Published: 16/10/2019
By: Brandon

Nick Swartzendruber and Jordan Powers have announced a brand new video tutorial, that is currently being filmed in Northern California, entitled "The Art of Real Estate Cinematography". When asked about the project, Nick from Drone Cowboys replied: "Creating a tutorial like this has been a dream of mine for a while now and I am super appreciative that it is finally coming into fruition."

Jordan Powers who is producing the tutorial says he too has always wanted to create a course on real estate videography, so working with a talented and respected community member like Nick made perfect sense. Jordan has been following Nick's work for a while and what he appreciates most about Nick, over and above his talent, is his humble approach to the craft and his commitment to providing honest, thoughtful explanations to questions asked by the community. Nick is a gifted cinematographer and great instructor.

While the tutorial is still in production, you can expect "The Art of Real Estate Cinematography" to be available for purchase by the end of this year.

  1. This looks very interesting, and I have certainly put the Dec 9 webinar on my calendar
    1. Is this ONLY on Facebook??? I hope there is an actual website portal. (Like many, I signed out of FB many months ago);
    2. HOW MUCH is the course??? I'm sure it is reasonable, but we can't find the cost anywhere - a mystery at this point.

    Thanks for any info or comments.
