Hey everyone, I’m a teenage videographer who hasn’t got a gig yet. I want to do a few free videos first to build my portfolio. I’ve been on multiple sites and emailed probably over 15 realtors in my area, every one of them has had the response of… “We would love to sell a home to you”, and then when I email back explaining that I am a videographer, they say “Oh, we do not need any videography services at this time.”. So I’m stuck and I don’t know what to do. I really want to start doing work to create a portfolio, can anyone help me?

See if someone who is selling their house will let you do a walk through of the house and a walk-around of the garden to create a “memory” of their home. Do a couple of these for the experience.
You must be very careful here because your video will expose the contents of the home to public view. Assure the owners that you won’t identify where the home is and who the owners are. All you’re trying to do is create a video that demonstrates your ability to
represent the rooms of a home artistically.
My experience with realtors is decidedly negative. I wouldn’t attempt to rely on real estate for a successful business. You’ll discover that most of them never have a need for video services and, if they do, it will be for super high-end production to represent multi-million dollar homes.
