are your qualifications and credentials?
My academic background is an
M.S. in scientific and technological imaging, an M.A. in
education in new media design and production, and a B.A. in
art. I've also completed specific additional coursework in
architectural photography, as well as specialized studies in
3D modeling and digital environment development.
are the services you offer?
My career in imaging started as a commercial photographer and
senior image-processing technician for Teledyne Systems
Company, and then as a wedding photographer. After programming
early computer games, and working as the art director on the
first video game by MTV/Viacom, I ran a boutique graphic
design consultancy for 10 years, which included product
photography, magazine ad development, brand collateral, and
training. Turning exclusively to photographic and
computational imaging, my most recent projects are for
commercial real estate and creative clients.
can these presentation formats be shared?
The following services are
available individually, or combined in one project:
- Individual 360º panorama creation.
- Multiple 360º panoramas linked into a tour.
- 360º visual rotations of objects.
- High resolution 2D still photography.
- Consulting on the implementation of 360º imaging.
This question has a multipart
audio be added to these products?
A single panorama is a single image file. It can be uploaded
to social media that supports panoramas, it can be displayed
on a webpage of its own as part of a website, it can be
embedded within a website page for viewing (much as is done on
this site), and it can be converted into a small stand-alone
program file that can be emailed and then viewed by the
A panoramic tour has multiple image files and may contain
additional embedded content, such as videos or text-based
information. Such a product can be used on social media that
supports 360º tours, although social media can also link to a
tour that is hosted elsewhere, which may give you more control
over your presentation. A tour can be displayed on a webpage
of its own as part of a website, it can be embedded within a
website page for viewing (much as is done on this site), and
it can be converted into a program file to be viewed by the
recipient. Tours are usually too large to be emailed, so a
service like Dropbox, with a download link that can be
emailed, is an effective method of delivery to the recipient.
An object rotation is a set of images that are displayed
sequentially, like a short video. If those images are retained
as individual files, they can be displayed on a webpage of
their own as part of a website and they can be embedded within
a website page for viewing (much as is done on this site). If
the images are converted to a .gif file, that single file can
be displayed in all places a .gif file is supported, such as a
Web browser. A single .gif file can grow very large. A service
like Dropbox, with a download link that can be emailed, is an
effective method of delivery to the recipient.
As you can see, options for 360º image viewing methods are
versatile. Consultation on the technical implementation of
these presentation formats is available before and after
Yes, typically for tours. A
button to enable or mute audio can be included to give the
persons viewing the tour control over that aspect of the
tours be updated over time?
Tours are created with
specialized software, which is not included with the tour.
Modifications to a tour can either be ordered from this
service, or the post-processed project files will be provided,
and the client can make changes, contingent on possessing and
having proficiency in the tour making software.
provide raw image files?
Please note that raw image files are not provided, only the
final post-processed versions of images are available.
No. Raw image files are the
original captures and are essentially digital 'negatives'.
These images are not suitable for direct display. The
post-processing phase of a project creates the final form of
the images, and those are then delivered to the client.
your 360º panoramas, panoramic tours and object rotations
require a subscription?
No. The imaging products created
by this service are provided subscription-free. You can add
them to your website or provide them to clients directly. If,
however, you desire to have your deliverables hosted for
convenience and simplicity, such 3rd party options will be
presented upon request.
precautions do you take regarding COVID-19?
CDC guidelines are followed.
