Frequently Asked Questions

  • Why do you charge so little for your services?

Simply put the cost of media has dropped by A LOT in the past years.   It no longer costs hundreds of thousands of dollars in gear to generate media.   But even at reduced costs (by comparison) the funds required to purchase a high end computer system capable of editing HD, and the camera’s to capture the media, may STILL be unrealistic for anyone but those who have a REGULAR need for such things.  And then of course it takes a given amount of time to learn the new tools and become proficient at using them.   Many folks just don’t have that time to spare.

RCMedia offers video services at a greatly reduced rate because we feel that this will encourage a good number of other KINDS of clients to use our services.   At the going rate, only the owners of very expensive homes or businesses can obtain gimbalized video and the post production services to match the quality we can provide for $200.

 

  • What’s stopping me from shooting video with my Smartphone and uploading it to YouTube?

Absolutely nothing!  But the purpose of producing such a video is to impress prospects with your offering.  If your video is less than impressive, some folks won’t even watch it to completion.  It’s almost better to have NO media than it is to have poor media if it’s going to work against you.  With that said, this is another reason I have dropped my price as I have. So you don’t HAVE to use your Smartphone.

 

  • What’s involved with using your services?  How do I get started?

The first thing you’ll want to do is set up your home the way you want it seen in your video.  The camera doesn’t miss a thing so just like you were running an open house, you need to be sure your establishment is ready for company.   Then call us to set up a scheduled time for your shoot.  Most times, we can get to your job in just a day or two.  The process doesn’t take long.  While you wait, you’ll want to download our “Highlights Form” and fill out the ten highlights of your home you want covered.  There are suggestions on the form located HERE.

  • How long will you need to be at my establishment during a shoot?

For those ordering our base package for $200, we will cover the ten highlights you indicated on the above-mentioned form, plus the outside of your establishment.  This process takes less than an hour, but we ask that you schedule for a full hour, to cover murphys law 😉   For those ordering additional services above and beyond our base package, please add time accordingly.

 

  • What makes your photos any different than most?

We shoot using a technology that results in the most vibrant images, all without flash even indoors.  We then process the images  using a number of processes to produce images that jump off a page, whether it be on line or in print..  But don’t take our word for it.  Judge for yourself!

  • Why do you charge your full fee up front?  Why should we trust you?

I charge a fraction of what others charge for the same services.  Being Semi-Retired, I don’t need to charge going rate.  I’m a free lance, not a business.  And cutting a small fee over two payments is both extra effort and cost.  BUT to help folks feel more comfortable with me, sight unseen, do a google for RCMedia Services.  I have been providing software, web design and hosting, and local media services for more than 30 years, 20 years on line.  I can provide a very long list of references including state health organizations, Christian organizations and businesses of all types.  Also do a search for any negative chatter regarding my services.  There isn’t any 😉  On line,  negativity travels quickly, and I’m not willing to take 30 years worth of reputation and spoil it over $200, I can assure you.  NOTE: I am NOT the RCMedia located on the west coast of FL.  THEY are a photo studio (that does some very nice work IMO)

 

  •           Do you offer aerial services?

We are indeed set up to offer aerial media, but the FAA is dragging their feet setting up the legal channels that would permit us to become legal.  And while some companies are choosing to continue offering said services, we have decided to be patient and do this right.   If you WANT affordable aerial media, DO call us and have us put you on the call back list.  Our aerial specialist is waiting and plans to JUMP ON the legal format just as soon as it’s made available.  We’d be delighted to call you back at that time.   Our normal average aerial job is $350, so you are aware.  And thanks for your interest and patience.
