About the team
Owner, Photographer, Licensed Drone Pilot & Editor in Chief

With her background in real estate—first as a realtor and then as the listing and marketing coordinator for the #1 team in Idaho—she recognized the importance of professional real estate photography and marketing. This background provided Lauren with a deep understanding for what listings need, allowing her to position agents for success. Since then, they’ve grown to offer full-services including videos, photos, drones, SEO tips for realtors, and more.

Brett Gettman started taking professional photographs in 1987, helping with his dad’s wedding photography business. In college, this skill grew to include video when he worked in broadcast media as a camera operator and sports news reporter.

Brett was an active real estate agent for over a decade and saw a clear connection between digital media and being competitive in the market. Now, with his real estate experience, along with a degree in Communication Advertising, he has an expert understanding of what goes into selling a property and how Red Hog Media fits into the equation. This combined expertise ultimately helps his clients achieve their goals. This career allows Brett to take his passion for helping businesses and combines it with his love of photography and video.
When Brett isn’t working, he’s coaching his daughters’ various sports teams, which reinforces the importance of small details and teamwork. Both these aspects of coaching overlap with his business, which is why Brett is so good at it!
