Your thoughts?

Hope you are well

Been speaking to our press team and we would love push the work of our MSPs to the journalists we know.

Was it easy adding Matterport to you business? Why did you buy the camera? Do you have any case studies that you think are newsworthy? Let me know so that I can forward it to the team.

If you are interested or not interested in doing press with us, please let me know either way.

Happy to explain this further, just let me know.

I replied and gave my answers, as I hope and believe this is Matterport reaching out and maybe trying to help MSP which is what we all moan about them NOT doing.

I am sure Matterport are keen to get additional coverage for themselves from my story and I hope I get some positive press/marketing from it but as they say nothing ventured nothing gained.

As both a professional photographer and cinematographer iv'e worked long enough to gain a bit of credibility in the 25 +yrs that Ive been shooting. Iv'e also been lucky enough along the way to get recognised for my work and I have had numerous stories written about me in and plenty of articles which have been pitched at both the public and specialist sectors such as the camera manufacture industry.
I'll happily endorse Canons cameras or Red Digital cinemas in my articles, In fact i'd endorse anyone who ever has my back when it comes to doing my job better for that matter. However the difference when I share my experiences about Canon is that Canon don't turn around and market themselves directly to the clients Iv'e just been commissioned to do a shoot for. I don't feel that Matterport have my back in the same way that Canon or Red Digital cinema cameras have my back and as a result I'd be reluctant to promote them when they do little to promote the long term survival of MSP's in their marketing. Their request seems like a one way deal to me. But I'd love to be proven wrong.

@ScanMan: my thoughts exactly. It sounds as though they're asking us to write the marketing materials for camera sales.
