360′s – The ultimate multimedia experience

Friday, April 1st, 2011


I know what a lot of you must be thinking when I mention the word 360′s.  Let me assure you that the 360′s that I’m talking about are not the horribly slow, blurred, tiny images of a few years ago.  You know the ones I’m talking about…you click to open them and then wait and wait… and then you wait some more until finally some rubbish tiny image opens up and starts to sluggishly and clumsily move.  Fortunately,  software development in the fields of imagery stitching and 360 projection as well as the vastly faster ADSL connections now available enable photographers to produce and build full screen, fast downloading and responsive 360 imagery for web viewers.

We have developed a way to photograph and deliver high quality 360′s allowing our clients, which include real estate agencies, restaurants, hotels/resorts and a host of others, to purchase our product and place it within their own websites. Viewing our 360′s at full screen is as close as you can get to feel as if you’re standing in the room without actually being there.  Our clients have thus far been thrilled with the product and the reaction they’ve received from clients.  I’m happy to say that even my most skeptic clients have become 360′s fans.

Escape to Africa

Tuesday, March 23rd, 2010


My latest photographic adventure took me on a relatively short trip down to the Dark Continent. I was commissioned to photograph a unique Moroccan-styled townhouse in Tangier, Morocco. As that I live in Southern Spain, getting to Tangier involved a short car ride into the expansive port of Algeciras followed by a one and a half hour ferry ride to the port of Tangier. The townhouse itself was a 10-minute walk from the port and located just outside the Medina. Although the exterior of this property was simple and unobtrusive, the interiors were magnificent featuring traditional U-shaped arches, elaborate use of bright color, and extravagant decorations. Traditional Zellige terra cotta tile work covered much of the floor and walls of almost every room while impressive Moorish plasterwork adorned the vaulted ceilings…and the views were absolutely spectacular! All in all, an amazing property. Enjoy the pics!
