Dean Harman (Walla Walla Virtual Tours): Services for Real Estate Pros in Walla Walla, WA Dean Harman (Walla Walla Virtual Tours) said over 11 years ago,
"As a professional photographer for over 25 years, it was inevitable that I would someday find a way to use my photographic talents for more than just a high school senior portrait or weekend weddings. I wanted to find a way that I could help other businesses draw new clients by using my photography. One day, I was doing an online search for a hotel to stay in for an Oregon Coast vacation we were about to embark on. I clicked on a beach condo in Seaside OR and was delighted to see a virtual tour that I discovered I could control where I wanted to go by using my mouse. This technology just thrilled me and I could immediately see how Realtors and Vacation homes could use my photographic services to their advantage.
Now, 3 years later, virtual tour photography makes the bulk of our business as we take the virtual tours to wineries, retirement communities and so many other businesses."
