PHOTOGRAPHIC VIRTUAL TOURS
Virtual Tours are a great way to promote your business. They give prospective customers a window into your space and allow them a better understanding of what you offer and how it feels. This can improve the first impression because people have a better idea of what to expect.
Art Gallerys and function venues allow virtual visits from folk out of town or overseas with ease - greatly expanding how many people you can attract to your venue.
For retail applications, customers understand your range of products. For gyms, customers understand the size and equipment on offer. For function venues, customers get a great understanding of the way their event could look in your venue without having to actually visit in person. The more informed a customer is the less likely they are to be disappointed when they arrive.
For Builders, Architects and other consultants having a clear picture of each stage of the job's progress is an invaluable tool.
Check out the 5 stage residential example for architect Green Sheep Collective below)
For Hotels, Air BnB rentals customers better understand the space and it's surrounding areas. Aerial 360 shots can be incorporated to give great perspective on the position of the venue to it's environment.
All images are typically supplied to the customer so they can be uploaded directly to your Google "My Business" account as well as Google Street View (my contributions so far have exceeded 100,000 views). Get more customers through the door with stunning images of your business on Google Maps. Work with a Street View professional to create your own immersive virtual tour
Do you have a rental property you want to show off? A virtual tour can be a fantastic way to help prospective users to choose the property they want, and waste less of your time.
Image quality options include standard (Shot with my Ricoh Theta Z1) and Premium (shot with my Sony A7R2, typically 24 images stitched together per position). I also offer aerial 360 images should they be useful (see Point Leo Foreshore Reserve example below showing a mix of aerial and ground 360 images).
Mix aerial & ground
This example created for the Point Leo Foreshore reserve shows a mix of aerial 360 and ground based 360 images, which are easy to navigate and find your way around this very large campsite site. Customised social media buttons, and map buttons and PDF info buttons for theentry area provide user information and easy to use links to book campsites).

CLIMBING ANCHORS: The Climbing Anchors Fitzroy store premium virtual tour was shot on the Ricoh Theta Z1 360 camera (14 shots) with 43 "popup" product close ups using a Sony A7III full frame mirrorless camera shot in HDR mode). Using the Ricoh DFE plugin and professional HDR mode this combines 9 "raw" images to create a high dynamic range (HDR) image. This means that the light and dark areas look better. Professional ending methods are used to get the image looking as good as possible. Web links to their online store allow visitors to find out more about the products and purchase via the Climbing Anchors website. All images are available on Google Street View.
We hope you enjoy exploring the virtual space and learning about what Climbing Anchors Collingwood offers!
Here is some feedback from the Climbing Anchors team:
"Josef Goding is a top-tier professional that has seemingly unlimited knowledge on all things physical and digital marketing. We first hired him to help us when we moved our shop into a larger location. He consulted us on how to get our store sign made and installed. He personally advised and helped us to install our new window stickers which came out perfectly. Shortly after, we asked him to come back and take professional photos of our entrance and interior of the shop. He came in early before we opened and took a mix of 3D photos and high quality professional shots of the store and some products which he then stitched together to make into a virtual tour for our google business. Every interaction and experience with Josef has been pleasant and informative. We highly recommend him to any business who is looking for a designer, photographer, or visual consultant."
