I had the pleasure of doing a small virtual tour at the Hyatt Regency Bellevue last week. What a beautiful hotel. Among the areas I was able to shoot included two of their premium suites including their top of the line, the Kemper Suite on the 24th floor. It is a large multi room suite with great views.

We do virtual tours for smaller businesses, too. Here is one of a Self Defense Studio in Redmond Washington we did 6 viewpoints just a little over a month ago. Already with 962 views. The cost was only $299. You can’t find a better digital marketing opportunity than that. Not only that, but they now have the #2 position in the search results for self defense in Redmond Wa.

Of course, we planned it during a time period in which there were not many members around and I had the club manager on hand to run interference for me. Unfortunately, it was a rainy day, so I will be going back to add the exterior images to the tour. If you have been following the […]
I had a great New Year’s Eve with a large photoshoot at the Coal Creek Family YMCA in Newcastle, WA. The facility is over 49,000 square feet on two floors which opened in 2009. One of the challenges of doing the photoshoot was finding a time that no one would be around. If there are people in the shot, we either need to get written permission from them or blur their faces. It is much easier to find a time when no one is around and New Year’s Eve was perfect. The Club closed at 1 PM and I was […]
