Hear what Bulldog Tours Owner has to say about us:

The Chart Group offers many ways for businesses in Charleston, South Carolina - Asheville, North Carolina - and Savannah, Georgia to grow their companies.  One of those ways is with Tour Video Network.  Tour Video Network is a large network of hotels and visitor centers that play our self produced and very high quality show 24/7.  Some call it a visitor's channel.. which is fine but we like to think of our show as an experience.  We inform the visitors / viewers in these hotels where the best places to eat are located, where they can take a tour to see the city, where the best places to shop are, family activites, historical sites, and the list goes on and on.  We asked one of our clients (John LaVerne of Bulldog Tours) what he thought about Tour Video Network and this is what he had to say:

The brand new 39 Rue de Jean located in the heart of Savannah is a must for anyone in the area! Why? Delicious food, really cool enviornment, amazing staff, and the list goes on. We had the pleasure of filming the restaurant this week and can not wait to show you the end results. The Chart Group thoroughly enjoyed our stay and highly recommend you check the place out.

The Preperations Begin

It's that time of year again when we start filming for the Bridge Run show! We are very proud to sponsor such an amazing event that means so much for our community. Every year we provide all the photography, videography, animation, etc. and create a 30 minute long show that is aired locally. We have some really great stories that we are very excited to share with everyone. So keep checking back with us. In the meantime, check out last year's show.

Sometimes it takes a different perspective to really tell a story. We love filming and photographing from hundreds of feet in the air in a helicopter. The Chart Group doesn't just specialize in Aerial Videography / Photography, we have a driving passion for it! We've had the privelege of showcasing cityscapes, events, and even news coverage from the air.


On a recent photography shoot, we decided that it would be fun to do a little experiment with one of our Charleston clients. While The Chart Group was busy taking photos of numerous food dishes on the menu, we had a client capture photography of the same subjects using their own camera, in this case, their iPhone. And honestly, phones today can actually capture great photography! So if consumer cameras or phones are great for photography, why should business owners hire professional photographers? Because professional photographers know how to ... 

Great food photography makes people hungry ... and that's great for business.


At The Chart Group, one of our specialties is Food Photography. It's also one of my favorite subjects to shoot. Not just because I get to indulge in a wide variety of amazing food (this is important), but becuase it's always a challenge. Lighting, composition, color, food prep and styling... every creative decision we make for an exposure is like the ingredients used to create the dish. Is that analogy cheesy? Cheesy... get it? Man, I'm on roll. But in all seriousness, great food photography is not only important for ...
