It’s a Chalet in the Smokey Mountains and I traded out my travel fee for a free stay tonight with my family after I finished the scan, so I’ll have the model up tomorrow or Saturday. 😁👍🏽

Dan,

Just waking up from the aforementioned free stay. 😁

I LOVE bartering scans for lodging, but it’s even better when you can barter the travel fee and still get paid for the scan. ❤️❤️❤️ Win Win!!!

God Bless,
Chris

P.S. Plus the fact that my family knows how to hide during the scan and help setup before the scan makes the trips less lonely... (it can cause distractions and shiney squirrels, but they are worth it!)

This makes me remember my first Matterport project immediately after I purchased the camera.

It was a 5 star hotel in the country side about 40 miles far from Buenos Aires City. A very big project (aproximately 40 acres of park with tennis courts, etc, and 40,000 sq ft of rooms, SPA, ball rooms, etc.

I did Matterport plus a virtual tour of the outdors using my special outdoors panoramic camera mounted in a backpak and shooting panoramics while walking at a maximum rate of 6 panos per second. I charged $0.30 per sq ft and the total, including the outdoors tour, was $17,000 - a 2 days project.

Why they accepted that price and happily paid the invoice? Because they didn´d pay it....

Let me explain: they issued vouchers for a total of $ 17,000. The vouchers were for SPA days, and weekends in their 700sq ft Imperial Suite with jacuzzi, all inclusive. They didn´t care about the price, and I think that if I quoted $0.40 instead of $0.30 they would have accepted it.

So, they gave me the vouchers and I published them in our local E-bay (called Mercado Libre) at a discount from the hotel´s regular price. The price was so good, and the place was so well known, that within 3 months I collected $15,000 approximately.
