• VHT Studios now has professional drone videographers on staff.
  • Drone videography adds a new dimension to the real estate marketing mix.
  • Hiring a firm to shoot video from a drone allows agents to focus on serving their clients.

If you’ve ever wanted to add dramatic videography to your client’s listings, drones are your answer.

One of the leaders in that space, VHT Studios, has added aerial drone photography and video services for real estate and business professionals to its offerings.

Now employing licensed pilot-photographers, the company captures stunning aerial video and images that show a dramatically different side of almost any listing. Take a look at their website for examples of still and drone shots of shoreline and mountainside homes, estates, farms, resorts and other buildings or properties.

In the commercial space, the drones can also navigate the inside of large properties such as warehouses, giving the potential client a complete view of the depth and breadth of the space.

The company’s site even features drone-captured video of the inside of a church.

VHT Studios is offering drone photography and video services in:

  •    Chicagoland, including portions of northwest Indiana and southern Wisconsin
  •    Westchester County, New York
  •    Long Island, New York, including The Hamptons
  •    Florida
  •    Seattle, Washington
  •    Portland, Oregon

New aerial services strengthen the company’s offerings for marketing residential and commercial real estate.

Aerial drone photography captures unique, high-altitude perspectives of properties in a way that no other image- or video-capture technology can. Aerial drone images help convey the complete spatial view of a property. From proximity to parks, city limits, topographic features such as mountains, valleys and lakes, aerial drone photography highlights benefits that can’t be captured through grounded photography and video.

“Our new aerial drone video and photography melds our technology and creative artistry to provide our clients with tools to set them apart from competitors,” said Brian Balduf, VHT Studios’ CEO, in a statement.

“As a leader of real estate photography, incorporating aerial drone technology into our product mix is a natural extension of how we innovate by creating compelling visual stories of homes, architecture, businesses and estates.”

If you are thinking of adding a drone to your marketing mix, remember that there are a variety of regulations that need to be adhered to. And, you have to have good videography and photography skills as well. Firms that specialize in drone photography have all those points covered so that real estate agents can focus on what they do best.

It takes a drone pilot roughly 30 minutes to create professional, high-quality video using a camera that appears to float over a lakefront, seaside or mountain home, farm, industrial complex, resort or ranch. Scheduling takes just 24 hours, with the finished, edited and enhanced video and photography delivered within 48 hours of the initial session.

The company boasts a network of professional photographers and image specialists. It is based in Rosemont, Illinois, and has helped more than 200,000 real estate professionals sell more than $200 billion in properties since the company’s founding in 1998.
