What's the Future for 3D Tour technology for Real Estate Photographers?
Watch (above) WGAN-TV: Imagining the Future for 3D Tour Technology for Real Estate Photographers on Wednesday, April 28, 2021 with Dr. Kelley Cours Anderson (@kcoursa), Researcher at Texas Tech University (and incoming Assistant Professor of Marketing at College of Charleston effective 14 May 2021).
WGAN-TV Live at 5 Show Includes
► Imagination is a driving force in market development, growth, and market futures.
► Methodology: Qualitative, Socio-historical analysis. Including a historical review of Silicon Valley, starting from the early 1900’s and a historical review of over 8 years in the development of a 3D/VR-tour technology.
► The Silicon Valley’s technoculture provides guidance for market futures, such as 3D tour tech, but also constrains the future market.
► While developers use their imagination to launch this market, the photography customer (including those first experiencing as an end-consumer) are pivotal in expanding this media into multiple markets beyond developers’ expectations.
➨ Positive: wider legitimacy, targeted marketing, convenience
➨ Negative: (tensions) – photographer customers’ creative rights and end-consumers’ privacy rights
► Ethical growth and potential legitimacy is possible through external imagination.
What is the future for 3D Tour Technology for Real Estate Photographers?
Find out on this WGAN-TV Live at 5 show.
Plus, we discuss:
✓ why the data captured matters (and why it may be more valuable than the 3D tour)
✓ does innovation come from "Silicon Valley" or photographers or elsewhere (and why)
✓ the tension/constraint of who owns the 3D tour
✓ verticals such as museums, insurance and mortgage documentation
✓ tips for 3D Tour photographers such as diversify your portfolio (and why)
It's fun to hear about the future given that many of us are focused on today, tomorrow or next week.

P.S. It's likely that you are familiar with Dr. Kelley Cours Anderson. Her research is often quoted by Matterport regarding homes with virtual tours sell faster and at a higher price.
✓ Matterport Blog (February 25, 2020) With 3D Tours, properties sell up to 31% faster and at a higher price
Listings with a Matterport 3D tour statistic examples include:
- Sold 20% faster (less days on market)
- For 4.8% more (higher sale price)
