ROSEMONT -- Real estate photoe services company VHT Studios is expanding its offerings to include licensed drone pilot-photographers to capture aerial video and images of homes and properties.
The new aerial services strengthen VHT Studios' innovation and builds upon the company's national growth, which has been fueled by acquisition, successful geographic market penetration and product line expansion.
Aerial drone images help convey the complete spatial view of a property and present a true lifestyle view. From proximity to parks, city limits, topographic features such as mountains, valleys and lakes -- and in some cases vast acreage -- aerial drone photography highlights benefits that can't be captured through grounded photography and video.
"Our new aerial drone video and photography melds our technology and creative artistry to provide our clients with tools to set them apart from competitors," said Brian Balduf, CEO, VHT Studios. "As a leader of real estate photography, incorporating aerial drone technology into our product mix is a natural extension of how we innovate by creating compelling visual stories of homes, architecture, businesses and estates."
The technology incorporates small commercial unmanned aircraft systems that are licensed and governed by the Department of Transportation's Federal Aviation Administration to capture 4k resolution photos and 60- to 90-second videos of commercial and residential properties.
The drones are controlled by VHT Studios' FAA Section 333-licensed pilots and directed by their talented photographer eye.
VHT Studios is offering drone photography and video services in the Chicago metropolitan area, including portions of northwest Indiana and southern Wisconsin; Westchester County, New York; Long Island, New York, including The Hamptons; Florida; Seattle, Washington; and Portland, Oregon
VHT Studios also launched a new website, VHT.com, that presents solutions and promotes the work of clients through property photos of the day, real estate industry insights, trends, how-to content and an easy-to-use, password-protected portal, MyVHT, for review of account details and other specific client information. VHT Studios is also growing, with the recent acquisition of award-winning New York City photography studio, Gotham Photo Company. The move expands VHT Studios' professional teams in New York City, Florida and California.
