When the pandemic struck in March 2020, Todd Wasylyshyn was laid off from his six-figure job in Vancouver.
So, the 54-year-old doubled-down on his life-long hobby—-photography. After immersing himself in learning how to shoot buildings inside and out, Wasylyshyn started a real estate photography business and built a website.
Nanaimo Photography was getting some traction, and Todd liked his new life. No more commuting from his home in Nanaimo to Vancouver. So, his old employers were surprised when they called Todd to return to work, and he refused.
“I really enjoyed being at home, working from home, not having to commute every week over to Vancouver, and not having to be away at trade shows and stuff. I was enjoying my time with my wife, my dog, and my home. So, I said: ‘You know what? Sink or swim, I am going to do this.’”
He quickly realized real estate photographers will not thrive on photos alone. So, when a contact said he should check out the iGUIDE camera, the budding entrepreneur quickly called the company behind the leading-edge proptech tool that has revolutionized online marketing for real-estate. Todd started using his new iGUIDE camera in September 2020.
The camera arrived on a Friday, and Todd had already watched the online tutorials and was excited to start using it.
