Hello,

My name is Valentin, I'm a real estate agent, living in the south of France.

I discovered this forum when I was looking for a virtual tour solution (no other estate agency are doing it on my aera so it's really a plus), I found here matterport and the cams, so thanks all of you, your posts helped me a lot !

I'm still testing my Theta Z1 on some houses we have on sell since this week so I still have some things to learn but I'm already happy of the results !

I have some issues with floors so maybe I'll do a topic later, I try to fix it on my own first.

And I hope I'll be able to help other people in the future, when I'll got more experience !

Hello everyone.
I am Dorian, a software developer from Albania.
Our company is based in Tirana, Albania.
Matterport technology got my attention since November 2019. I researched it a lot but couldn’t decide to go for it until the COVID-19 lockdown where I saw a increasing demand for tech solutions. During this time, here in Albania all tech companies were making offers to develope e-comerce websites for different markets. I just thought it was the right moment to bring something new on the local market.
Early this month I recieved my new Matterport Pro2 Camera and have tested it in-house, and I really got surprised for its quality.
I have just finished my first project and contracted 4 others. Also a major project (which I am concerned about it’s large size) is waiting to be signed.
I have learned a lot from thif wonderful forum, but I am still cofused about the Pricing Standards.
Also something I need help is that I need to access the Sample Forms Library requires password. If anyone can help me how to get it I would be very thankful.

Here is my first ever project for a showroom: ...



Thank you again & I like this community.

Greetings!

I am a south Bay Area resident in Northern California. Just beginning my career in real estate as a "mature worker" after a sales career in high-tech. Just received my Ricoh Theta SC2 from Amazon this morning and am preparing to shoot my first 3D tour tomorrow. I'm heading towards using Kuula as my platform after Ben Claremont's recommendation in his November 2019 tour software review.

I'm glad I found this forum, looking forward to the resources and being a resource. As soon as I get reviewed, I want to add a comment to the post on the new RicohTours offering. Onward!

Hello I am Michel from Germany, working on panorama photography since the year 2000. Back then we developed a lot of things, like the first snap head for DSLR cameras. it was always fun to try out new things. i had to get used to Pano2VR, where i miss a lot of good advice. I am a craftsman of the old kind, I need real tools in my hand. At the moment I'm trying out the MiSphere 360 and the Madventure, I'm also very interested in the Matterport. I normally work with Nikon and Sigma 8° Fisheye.
At the moment I'm stuck in the Algarve in Portugal. I'm still looking for photographers to exchange here.

Greetings

Hello Everyone...

I am Alex and i have been a "semipro" photographer / videographer for the last 10 years.

I am really intrigued by 360 tours. I bought a Samsung 360 camera with my phone back like 3 -4 years ago. And was somewhat interested, but wasn't sure what to do with it... Until I have seen the business aspect of it. I believe NOW is a great time to get this going. People even less want to leave their house (real estate) and want to see a business, gym, restaurant... before you go there.

So i have done what so many of you have done I guess search on the internet and you tube about 360 tours. Came across many tutorials as well as this forum. I gotta say... The amount of info and emails there are, are a bit overwhelming. But I am up for the task.

Here my current gear: 2 DSLR's 5DMK2 and a newer SL2. I bought a Ricoh SC2, since the Theta Z1 is a pain to get your hands on.

I own a DJI Spark and a Mavic Air 2.

Got a Monopod and tripod. Work mostly with Lightroom and PS.

I have tried so far Kuula, Metareal and Panoskin as far as software goes.

Hi Everyone,

I'm George - a filmmaker that has recently got into the virtual tour space with a big client. I'm having a few issues with my first tours, mainly that my client wants Matterport and I've used Kuulu. I've made a separate thread about it anyways.

Looks like a great and helpful community here. I'm learning as I go and feel like I'm getting past the hump. Excited to learn more about this new world of possibilities.

Hello from Ireland!

Thank you for welcoming me.

Let me introduce myself, my name is Christophe, I am French and I live in the southwest of France, near the Atlantic coast.

Entrepreneur, user of Matterport and convinced of the power of the product which is not yet recognized enough.

I'm trying to work for that in my area, also with classic 360 and other projects.

My company is called My Virtual Scan => www.myvirtualscan.fr

I really appreciate this forum which is very pleasant and a wealth of useful information.

I would certainly have a lot of questions for all of you.

Continue like that, and sorry for my bad writing

Hi All
I have been a part-time photographer, full time Electrical Engineer for a long time, the companmy I worked for pulled out of Australia last year, so I decided to become full time photographer - the usual weddings, portraits with a few landscapes and food
Covid scuttled that plan, so I signed up to do Ben's Virtual Tour Pro course, and this has set me on a different direction completely
I am also doing Eli's Real Estate Pro course (got lots of time on my hands)

I have two Canon EOS R bodues, and numerous lenses, studio strobes, Ricoh Theta Z1 and far too much other stuff (SWMBO - she who must be obeyed) still thinks I have one camera - I think I'm going to suffer one day:-)

I have done two shout Virtual Tours in Kuula (I bought the licence), but need to stretch my scope asap,looking at Gooogle Street View and 3D - I feel that quality photography is now available to so many people (hobbiests who don't care about longevity of the trade but only about some pocket money)so I am seriously looking at 3D
I don't have a Matterport camera but hopefully I can get one soon - is this a must?

I have lived in 5 countries, Zambia, South Africa, Germany, New Zealand and now Australia, so am not a stranger to change

Well, that's me :_)

Lol - "(SWMBO - she who must be obeyed) still thinks I have one camera" . You'll fit in just fine here. You're in a great spot with tons of options here on WGA already having a Z1 and up to date with the R series. Study with what you got should catch you up just fine. As you find some cracks, you'll find WGA offering answers you won't find on a Facebook group. I swear those people never use the Search Button and end up annoying the rest of us asking the same question every so many hours.

Hello! im new here..
Aldo from México, im just starting to build my virtual tour business i think im just a rookie on video and photography services although i have a photo booth and video booth bizz for social and corporate events...

Im living in puerto vallarta mexico, so i think i have a real opportunity for doing business in here, its a really touristic place in here (not now since the covid came to complicate things)but i think its worth to give it a shot and try to make a profit out of the 360 photography...

I hope i can participate more in here thanks!

Hi, New here.

From England and am an Pro Photographer and have an Estate Agency as well.

Have been in the 360 business since it became usable in the industry (3/4 years) using Theta cameras and Mattaport.

Recently bought two Theta Z1’s and now have one damaged (pence chipped after wind blow over and the other I think has a hardware fault which I will be quizzing on here as there is nothing on the net to help elsewhere - so for now back to using the trusty theta 5!

Hi, Im new here.

I am based in Dublin, Ireland and pre Covid I worked as a photographer in the corporate events market. I always had an interest in real estate and would love to add this to my skillset. Initially looking at providing photography and floor plans but I am very intrigued with 360 photography. This website is full of rich resources and very helpful to a photographer that is new to the genre.

Hi Everyone,

My name is Kyle and I'm originally from Ottawa Canada, but now live in Denver CO. I come at this not from a photography background but as an IT professional.

I'm particularly interested in the idea of Google Street View map updates as a service that can be sold.
Looking forward to learning with you all.
