About Me

My photo

I am JCVdude aka Joe Vass. As a Freelance Videographer, Producer & Photographer my passion & focus is travel and travel related videos; to show the incredible beauty of destinations in the hopes of intercepting and inspiring others to travel. I have chosen YouTube, as my delivery system as it is the World's 2nd Largest Search Engine, it accomodates HD & 3D video and in using it, we are viewed in over 200 Countries World Wide.

With my partner, Cindy Aspden, our JCVdude YouTube Channel is the 17th Most Viewed Channel All Time in Canada. With an average of 100,000 views per day to our broadcast channel, we continue to be featured by Mainstream Media: Google Canada in the London Free Press reported, "Another wildly successful Canadian YouTube star is JCVdude."

Our collections of videos include a wide variety of content as we explore our world and it’s beauty; incredible alpine resorts, beautiful Caribbean resorts, Jazz Festivals & interviews with the great Buddy Guy, Talent Contests, Tours, Nature, Cuisine, Sporting Events, Arts & Culture and more, including Charitable and Non-Profit Events. 

Our philosophy is 'YOLO' ~ You Only Live Once. Tomorrow isn't promised to any of us so live life to it's fullest and with passion. My goal has always been to travel and document through video, the world and it's wonders and beauty. I film and produce video to allow my viewers the feeling that they are 'there' - in the destination themselves and also to whet their appetite to go ~ to travel and see & experience for themselves. 

We love travel! We are passionate about travel and passionate about documenting our travel. Never without our cameras, our day starts before the sun rises and ends late into the night. This is our passion!! 'YOLO'!!

How to approach your CEO Re: Social Media Marketing.

Dazzle with Jargon?

I would like to acknowledge that following the acquisition of a YouTube account, I did become aware of a correlation between my relational database, my due diligence and the resultant cognitive dissonance. With qualitative and quantitative research and evaluation from contact management systems, I was positioned for the 'Accelerator Principle' through spray and diversity, demographics, differentiation and direct response. SERP resulted in Early Adopters of commendable Long line keywords and obvious link popularity, with a plethora of research and development on response rate, verifying logistics, the FMEA, the ROI and the FOB, all of which I found to be the perfect incentive scheme. So, applying optimization strategies and employing interstitial positioning I consulted with my DMU and with hype, we engaged the demographics for direct distribution to enable conversion in order that the forecasting of our Corporate Identity would be SIC.
