About Us

Where we started.

Back in 2016, OTBx was founded. Our concept at the time is what it is today. “Make Photography & Videography Ridiculously Simple” Photographers, videographers and drone pilots all have one thing in common; a passion for shooting. Similarly, they often don’t have experience or interest in dealing with all of the challenges that come with running a business. Selling, invoicing, accounting all get in the way of the passion.

We saw an opportunity to connect talented photographers, videographers and drone pilots with steady work in an environment that would help them live into their passion. Our vision was bold then and is even bigger today.

Create the world’s largest photography and videography company.

When we started OTBx we wanted to be different from a typical photography company. We wanted to bring something fresh and unique to the market. Something that helped our clients step ‘outside the box’. This is where our name, OTBx, originates. We would be known for doing right by our clients. We’d provide great service, simple processes and would be a fair and equitable employer, full of opportunity for the team that works to fulfill the vision.

Since our start back in 2016, we have been on a mission to fulfill our core values. Quality, Speed, Creativity & Simplicity. The quality of our work is of paramount importance. It’s game changing for our clients and helps them stand out from their competitors. Our speed is a top priority for us. We pour effort and energy into the speed of our processes to ensure that we set the industry standard when it comes to getting appointments scheduled and content delivered. Creativity is foundational at OTBx. We have our ear to the ground on new trends and technologies and combine our creative, outside the box thinking to give our clients an experience that is unparalleled in the industry. Simplicity; it touches everything we do from our booking, tracking and payment systems to our client onboarding and experience.

Where we are today.

Today we are proud to service the real estate and commercial sector. We provide national coverage across Canada with teams located in Toronto and Calgary. In 2020, we opened our first US operation in Boston Massachusetts. Our business has expanded to provide new services including digital marketing and full turn-key solutions to help our clients do more with the content that we provide them. We have a growing commitment to automation and have proven that our model is fulfilling an important need in the market and is duplicable as we scale for future growth.

Where we are headed.

At OTBx we have always had a big vision. Our vision to become the largest photography and videography company in the world. This original vision from 2016 hasn’t changed, however it has grown and will continue to. 10 years from now, we see OTBx as a global leader. A company that unites talented photographers, videographers, drone pilots, editors and marketers to be a part of something bigger. We are the company that will set that bar around the world when it comes to quality, speed, creativity and simplicity. Our clients will win and will grow with us. The marketing of their business will be fully powered by OTBx working in sync to ensure that they are leading in their respective markets. As a company, we will be known for our culture of respect, hard work, dedication and fun. Our high standards, fun work environment and focus on always doing what’s right, will create endless opportunities for everyone who chooses to be a part of what we do at OTBx.
