Last year was an extraordinary year for growth at Cincy Photo Pro. Our progress has only continued to move forward. With all of the craziness, we thrived exponentially! We are doing a little celebration dance today and saying thanks to all that contributed to our success. Here’s just a few things we are proud of.
New Virtual 3D Touring Services Offered
Last year, we started offering the sensational software iGuide for 3D Tours along with investing in an iGuide camera. We used matterport in the past, but upgraded to the dslr system for more customization and longer hosting without additional fees!! This made our Real Estate services and commercial google maps branding more robust. In addition to guided 3D tours: floor plans, room measurements, area calculations, long term hosting and google maps integration is included at no additional cost!!! We can even add on hot spot markers, photos and aerial 360s to tour! See more about this special service here.
We Hired Staff!
Our schedule was filling up and we wanted to open up more scheduling opportunities for when the owner Krista was booked or out of town. So, Krista Silz took a big leap and interviewed several candidates that would meet our standards in professionalism, customer service and quality work. Then she hired a photographer, and hired again, and AGAIN! Meet our newest team members:
- Cayce: Real Estate Drone Pilot with fantastic style for aerial photography. He is FAA certified and ready to fly!
- Kerri: Long time real estate photographer who loves what she does! With over 20 years in the photography field, she is a great addition to the team!
- Eric: Aerial photographer and drone pilot who loves doing commercial properties, land development and roof inspections!
- Nicole & Ryan: Our wedding and event photography specialists! They make a great team and both have natural eyes for capturing that perfect moment.
- Angelique: 3D Tour photographer and assistant. She has a unique eye for photography that is a huge help in assisting many photoshoots! And trained in the guide system. So she often helps out when photos and tours are ordered on the same property.
- Sarah: We desperately needed administrative help and Sarah came to the rescue! She helps with invoicing, confirming appointments, and making sure we run smoothly.
Thanks to all of our new team members that have helped keep Cincy Photo Pro going in 2021 and beyond! We are very excited to see additional growth this year and serving more of you!
Engraving Services Offered
Krista saw a gap in the market of high-quality engraving services and decided to fill it! With much ambition, she went out and bought an engraving machine. She has been creating and embellishing signs, products, promotional items and more for many clients over the last year. Our specialty is custom wood products like cutting boards, pencil holders and wood signs. We often do client appreciation drawings and gift some of our engraving products with our client's name or logo!! Just a fun way to say Thank you!
Finding Our Specialty
Cincy Photo Pro was just dipping its toes into Real Estate and product photography about 5 years ago. Over the last few years, Krista found herself with more and more of these clients as time went on! Real Estate and drone photography and videography is carving its place in Cincy Photo Pro as being one of the most valuable jobs that we have formed a niche into. Our drone work has improved and become one of our top sought after services! We are now adding indoor fly thru services in 2022 which is fantastic for businesses and commercial real estate.
We worked with manufactures, cooks, water bottle companies and more on product images for their marketing as well. Great when mixed with our branding sessions or products small enough.
We Got Our Own Office + Studio!
After years of being a part of the LDR Design office, it was time for Cincy Photo Pro to spread its wings. Without delay, we found a nice office just a few miles down the street that is still convenient to all of our local clients. We are also located right next to ASM Framing, of whom we offer a discount on frames when you get pictures done with us!
A Year for Headshots
Cincy Photo Pro did more headshots this year than ever! We invested in better lighting, backdrop systems and for certain sessions, tether equiptment, to easily view your photos during and after the shoot in studio or on location!!
The team at Cincy Photo Pro is humbled to have had such an amazing year. We want to extend a big THANK YOU to all who have contributed to our growing small business over the years. Growth can be intimidating, but like our children, so wonderful to watch and provide everything needed to go into the future with strength and vitality! Here’s to an even better year ahead!
