How to Shoot Real Estate Videos
A Step by Step guide for Shooting Great looking Real Estate Videos that work
If you are new to shooting Real Estate videos or perhaps a seasoned shooter looking for some more tips and ideas then read on.
I have designed this video course giving step by step instructions drawing on my 20+ years of shooting professional video for TV, Realtor firms and corporate clients.
Hi Grant, thanks for an awesome informative and to the point course. I got quite a few pearls of wisdom out of a nicely put together course such as the workflow, how much to charge and drone flight patterns to name a few. I'm sure these will help me with my own productions.
Course Content & Overview
This course is aimed at anyone who wishes to shoot professional looking Real Estate Videos. This could be someone already shooting Real Estate Videos looking for some new ideas and methods or perhaps a Real Estate photographer wishing to add video to their offering.
The course runs through the complete process I have been using to shoot Real Estate Videos for the last 10 years. The course starts off with an overview of the process I use and I talk about how to get your first job and how to set your price for the job. I also include a PDF of what I currently charge down here in New Zealand and are using successfully to make money doing it.
I then talk about (and show) what equipment I use for the jobs including the camera gear and the current drone I use and whether or not you should offer drone filming as part of your offering.
Once the pre-production (fancy industry term meaning all the organising before shooting) is done I take you out on a real world shoot. This was tricky to shoot myself shooting a real job but will give you an insight into how exactly I approach the job and set up my shots.
Finally I give an overview of my post production process (I don't go into exact post production editing as thats a separate topic in itself), show you the finished video from our real world shoot and how I deliver to the client.
My aim is to give you the essential information only for shooting video so that you can hit the ground running and get out there and start producing some great looking videos.

Great information and presentation but best of all Grant's style is no waffle and straight to the point. Exactly what I needed.
Well done. Informative, moves well, great advice and follow-up to questions.
Hello I'm Grant and I live in the beautiful town of Queenstown, situated in the South Island of New Zealand with my wife and three children. I have been a professional freelance video cameraman for the last 19 years and have been fortunate to have worked on a wide variety of projects. I cut my teeth shooting news for the two main broadcasters here in New Zealand. Since then I’ve been really lucky to have worked on a diverse range of projects from television reality shows, corporate videos to chasing Crocodile Rangers around the backwaters of Darwin for the National Geographic channel to shooting on a Bear Grylls reality show here in New Zealand.
Big shows I’ve shot on include Castaway (BBC), Bear Grylls (NBC), The Biggest Loser (NBC), Road Rules (MTV), Behind the scenes shooting for feature films Lord of the Rings and The Legend of Zorro. So that’s all the glamour job name dropping I could think of, other jobs include weddings (in my very early days), shooting for-sale videos for Japanese Heli Skiers and a lot of snowboarding, skiing, motor-sport and most sports you can think of and corporate videos for many small local businesses from around my town.
