As filmmaker, videographer for the past 10 years I almost forgot the joy of photography. I have been using a Canon 7D and most recently a 60D for video, but now once in a while I turn it on to photo – (yes funny how I bought the camera to shoot video!) and I snap away. I come to enjoy taking a few detail shots at weddings mainly for myself interest, but had an opportunity to pop in at a wedding Lynn Fletcher doing and took a few detail shots, hoping she could use them on her website or elsewhere. The lighting guys were testing their system doing a last minute check , so had a mixture of lights going on from white to pink to red.
It’s amazing with what you can do with the light that exists in a room without a flash, that is if you have the right lens. All technical things aside, it was a few shots, but I was like a little kid with a new toy, except the new toy wasn’t so new, it was like I discovered that the toy actually was like a transformer becoming something I never knew I would like soo much again. Hopefully I’ll be able to take some time and shoot some more stuff and post on the website. For now back to filming and editing.

Spring Creek is located in the heart of the Canadian Rockies in the town of Canmore. The development is unique in many ways and is in the centre of town walking distance to many shops , restaurants and much more.
We had the pleasure of working with Frank Kernick. Developer Frank Kernick and his family have called Canmore home for three generations, and Spring Creek embodies their commitment to this place and the values that have shaped it over the years.Frank cares deeply about the people, businesses, natural splendour and exciting future of Canmore; and his genuine, unaffected affinity for the town’s residents finds expression in Spring Creek’s extensive involvement in local events and philanthropic efforts.
Here is the first video we created to introduce Spring Creek.

Canmore Real Estate market is picking up and more listings are coming on the market. Richard Greaves is one of the local Realtors that are taking advantage of my video capabilities and getting me to produce short form Real Estate videos. One of his clients Wade Graham of Higher Ground Real Estate Investments had Richard film one of his properties for sale, realizing the potential of video to sell his properties. These videos are a maximum of 2 minutes in length giving the potential buyer a quick view of the property. The client can then decide to vie more pictures or make an appointment to actually view the house. The video gives the viewer a better sense of the house.
Now you ask about voice over, layouts, some one on camera which can all be done, but the time and cost may be prohibitive to some realtors where others selling a high end home over 1.5 million may consider doing more of the finer details.
The main point here is that Realtors will have more views do to having video than not. End of story. So decide if this is important to you in the world wave of video online and that You Tube is the second largest search engine after Google and your thoughts may change. Print is expensive and if your going to do it, just direct them to your website, no need to waste it in print. You want to get them to your website and browse your listings , not just take a peak at the pics in the print ad.
Clare McArdle another local realtor also decided to do a video for one of her listings that happened to be rented quite frequently in a vacation condo rental pool. She now can show potential clients the condo without having to figure out if it’s available for a showing, tough to do on weekends when rented out.
Here are some video produced.
