Window + iPhone + tripod = one fantastic video

One of my half-way-through-the-year resolutions was to up the game with the marketing for my own vacation rental properties.

After I…

  • refreshed my personal property website with a new mobile responsive layout
  • updated the photos for Canyon Retreat
  • added drone photos and video

…I moved to my next personal marketing project: a video reply to send to every single traveler who inquires about being a guest at one of my places.

This video is sent to every single person who inquires from my own website, HomeAway/VRBO, and TripAdvisor:


While still on the high of feeling pretty good about my video reply, I went ahead and made another video for you. This one is how I made the other video. :)

Take 3 minutes to see my exact set up with my MeFoto RoadTrip tripod, the lighting, the angle of my iPhone, and how I was standing.

After that, I challenge you to make your own selfie video reply. Please be sure to share it with me!


P.S. Yes, this video is also shot with an iPhone (my son’s) on a MeFoto RoadTrip tripod with the Sidekick attachment. Two tripods come in handy at times for sure.
