About Us

About Us

Our position in our business is to treat our customers well and happy, and to ensure they are happy with our work we do for them. Honesty, being upfront and hard work plays an integral role in our business. We operate in a transparent and professional manner.  In addition, we take pride in excellent customer service – that is communicating with our customers with honesty so that both of us understand each other, as well as responding to customer emails and phone calls in a prompt and timely manner.

We partner with several Real Estate teams to help them with their marketing of the properties. Working as a team, we believe that we can achieve their goals to successfully list and sell properties with our hard working and high quality photography talents. Combining with other innovative features of our photography services, including 360 Virtual Tours, 360 Hotspots Virtual Tours, and High Definition Video Tours with crane and dolly shots, we can assure that the realtor’s customers will want to make an appointment to see the houses in person after viewing the interactive photography and stills.  Our goal is to help realtors achieve their goals.

 

Our goal is how to make photography interactive and creative – not just seeing it as a 2D static photo, but how to make photos into almost 3D-like. The answer to this is shooting still life photography objects and making them viewable at multiple angles in 360 degrees, whether it is 360 Virtual Tour of a local park, or 360 rotation degree view of a networking electronic object.

We value ourselves with quality and fast customer service.  Our previous and existing customers were very impressed with how promptly we respond to their questions and needs, and that they were very impressed with our quick completion of projects.  We serve all our customers with a smile and a friendly attitude.

 

We not only just do photography – we cover a wide range of multimedia design, short videography of documentaries, photo touch up and modification, graphic design of newsletters, pamphlets and brochures, video editing, video slideshows and CMS web design and development.

 

Our goal as well is to be innovative and unique. Apart from the 360 rotational photography, for example, our portrait photography is unique where customers can have their backgrounds changed into anything, such as a white background.

 

Ivan Chan Photography serves the Lower Mainland area in Vancouver, BC and the entire North America region. Clients can courier the products to be photographed to us from anywhere in North America outside the Vancouver region. Photo retouching and modification (along with payment) can be done over the internet.

 

We have worked with a number of major customers, including the Government of British Columbia, Canadian Broadcasting Corporation, Sutton West Coast Realty, University of British Columbia, Georgia Pacific Realty Corporation, RE/MAX Realty, Royal Pacific Realty, and Multiple Realty Ltd. We’ve also worked with a large number of individuals and smaller businesses to meet their photography needs.

 

All of our customers we’ve worked with before have one thing to say in common – that our attention to detail and quality to our work is outstanding and that we deliver excellent customer service in all areas, from prompt correction of mistakes, punctuality of meetings to quick response of emails.
