The agents wanted more. Could Blake do interior video? Interior photos? 3D photos? So, he started using his drone to take interior video, and his smartphone for pictures. Clearly, he needed to upgrade his equipment. So, Blake spent most of his profits buying lights and a better camera for taking interior videos. Later, he also bought a 360° camera to stay competitive.
He found himself in the real estate photography business as a side line.
At this point, Blake needed at least two hours inside each home for taking stills, 360° pics, interior video, and exterior drone footage. The editing at home took another two or three hours. So, each property was a minimum of five hours work, limiting Blake to a couple or three properties a week.
He did that for nearly a year.
“I could, at best, only do a house every other day,” says Blake.
