YouTube Thursdays - What are you passionate about?

Real Estate Broker/Owner with ViewHomes of Clark County - Nature As Neighbors

Charlie Dresen has done it again! When Steamboat Springs was chosen as a favorite by several magazines, including Dog Fancy and Outside, he capitalized on the opportunity. Few people have as much passion about the place they call home as he regularly exudes.

Today, YouTube Thursdays reminds us to seize the day when opportunity knocks. When your market gets an accolade, take advantage of it and strut your stuff.  Charlie's great article, Outside Magazine is Playing Favorites, includes this awesome video. 

For obvious reasons, Charlie is one of my favorite videographers. His videos are not only filled with great footage, but they have a soul. Have you tapped into the passion you have for the place you call home?  Take a look at Charlie's work and get inspired.

ViewHomes™ grew out of our passion for nature, beautiful surroundings, and peaceful environments. Starting together in an urban environment, over the years we've gravitated towards areas with smaller populations and less density. We now enjoy our lifestyle in a rural environment, but with close proximity to metropolitan areas where we appreciate all the amenities of fine restaurants, shopping, and an easy drive to an international airport.
Living in ViewHomes™ is like having “elbowroom for the soul”.

Deb- I just watched itand it was"wow" professionally done.  If this video doesn't give someone ideas on doing a good video, then I'm not sure what will.

Boy, Debb, he's phenomenal! I wish that I had the skills to know how to edit, add music, all of THAT. You've made me decide to subscribe to him. Thank you!

(And you KNOW what I'm passionate about...and still photos have to work for me, currently. Maybe there's a tripod in my Christmas packages???)

Debb - Two thumbs up rating on this post. You are right about the passion and you could not have picked a better example. Charlie is aided by the fact that so many other folks are passionate about the very same thing.

Kathy, he is the guy who gives us great examples on a regular basis. We don't have to be exactly like Charlie, but we should aspire to his passion and committment. D

Glad to hear that Gayle. You do fabulous photos - just add a bit of video from time to time and you'll have the makings for some amazing videos.

Hi Brad, very true. ;)

Hi Debb - Charlie and you are my video heroes - you guys set the bar that I hope someday to reach with my videos, and it's going to be a long hard climb to get there. Now if you and Craig Daniels would just finish the video class......

He rocks it on so many levels Kathleen.

Hi Dick. Aw, you're sweet to even include me in the same sentence as Charlie. As for that class... ;)

Wow Debb - so "cool,"  Pun intended!  This gives new meaning to the guys that have video cams on their motorcycle helmets.  I'd love to see those videos in Arizona!  Thanks for sharing.

You are very correct as that is a really good video and commentary. What a backyard! If I remember correctly from my ski days of long ago, skiing on fresh powder is like dying and going to heaven for an avid skier.

Debb: I agree with Dick, both you and Charlie set the bar so very high on video production.  No surprise that Charlie nails it with this one too!
