About Us

Tailwind Productions is at your service.


We provide traditional and aerial photography and video services, primarily to property owners in the Short Term Rental industry (i.e. AirBNB/VRBO/Homeaway) and to city/county governments - typically those seeking to gain exposure for their investments in Parks & Rec infrastructure.

We also provide coaching and guides for new or prospective Short Term Rental property owners who want to learn what they're getting into before they purchase, how to set up the systems they'll need to manage remotely, or simply how to optimize the management of their investment property. Our experience as "local to Smoky Mountains" STR investors who manage our own property lets us share our lessons learned, free from any real estate sales incentive bias that may sugar coat the realities.
