Life & Work with Curtis Adams

Today we’d like to introduce you to Curtis Adams.

Hi Curtis, thanks for sharing your story with us. To start, maybe you can tell our readers some of your backstory.
I started right out of college freelancing in the sports industry. I also worked in the news industry. I found myself jumping from station to station and never becoming happy. The news industry is feeding a beast that is never satisfied so I left the industry to try to make it on my own. I went out and did real estate photography. I had no idea how to take photos of listings so I started watching Youtube until I started to master the process. Now we are photographing multiple listings a day. We are also attacking the video industry as well and finding success in the realm.

Would you say it’s been a smooth road, and if not what are some of the biggest challenges you’ve faced along the way?
The biggest struggle is trying to satisfy every client. No matter how many clients you have, there will always be that one client who is never happy. COVID-19 caused us to lose over 25 gigs in the freelance world but we gained over 100 listings in the real estate world. Pushing more virtual options and now we incorporate this service more often. We are now offering Live Stream services as well.

Thanks for sharing that. So, maybe next you can tell us a bit more about your work?
I am a videographer/real estate photographer. We specialize in all things video but really push as much as we can through real estate. From marketing to promotions to testimonial videos for clients. We push to be a part of the entire process for a real estate firm. We go in and measure and photograph the listing. We then build various posts for those clients to use on social and more. Lastly, we create the testimonial video after the clients have finished everything.

What sort of changes are you expecting over the next 5-10 years?
I think the biggest shift will be the fact that everyone can take photos. It will allow realtors to take their own pictures. Once that happens, we need to reevaluate ourselves as a photography company. We may become more of an editing company. Editing client photos instead of going to locations to take the photos. Videos may not change too much but photography will due to phones.
