enjoy beautiful, high resolution, panoramic photography
We recently shot the new $1.7 Billion Dollar Gold Coast University Hospital. They’re working on a new website which will include the virtual tour so we can’t show much at present. The panorama above is one of the beautiful indoor open areas that populate the enormous facility. It’s a truly stunning place, where the entrance has an 8 storey atrium, complete with finishes and scale that wouldn’t be out of place in a 6 star hotel. I look forward to showing all the panorama […]
Once per year the RSL run a HUGE prize draw in addition to their standard luxury home draws. If you’re going to win one of their properties this is the one to win. You don’t just get the Penthouse, you get the entire building. We shot this virtual tour on the Gold Coast. www.rslartunion.com.au
Today the largest project we’ve ever produced launched via a Google Hangout with various partners in 2 locations… New York and Bermuda. http://globalreefrecord.org The Catlin Global Reef Record (CGRR) is so much more than the work we usually do of producing interactive media. It’s a complete system of content and data acquisition from the underwater cameras of SVII, through many stages of data processing and content stitching to the finished scientific website. Completing the […]
Top 20 Winners Video. (13mins w/music) Once again I was asked to judge interactive 360 panoramas (virtual tours) for the Epson International Pano Awards. As usual I thoroughly enjoyed the process, wishing only for more time to luxuriate in the outstanding work. As with previous years we also produced the top 20 video for show on the Epson stand at the PMA Photo Exhibition. To do this we use tools built way back in 2006, which work with After Effects, allowing us to produce HD and higher rez cle […]
Had you won this RSL prize home draw, you’d be the proud owner of 3 luxury apartments. We did the Melbourne Virtual Tour, Sydney Virtual Tour and Brisbane tour over a couple of days, along with other projects.ney, Brisbane, NSW,
We had the pleasure of working with YMCA Brisbane to produce virtual tours for 3 of their gyms, including the new flagship facility at Bowen Hills. Shooting Gyms can be fun, they certainly inspire you to get into shape… the only downside is they open VERY early. Photography without people usually requires us being onsite around 4am… not so fun, but we do it anyway
I was very excited when the team shot WHALE SHARKS for the first time recenlty. I’ve been asking for something big… I was expecting whales… but instead I got WHALE SHARKS. We also produced some coral panoramas from Gloves Reef in Belize. But did I mentioned… Whale Sharks
Two more gorgeous display home virtual tours for the always outstanding Clarendon Homes. This time we’ve produced tours for their Park Hill 32, and Fairmont 38.
I was with the Catlin Seaview Survey team on Lady Elliot Island recently for a National Geographic documentary series on Australian Coastlines. They wanted to do a segment on the Catlin Seaview Survey, so we all had to suit up and perform our roles for the cameras. Of course we always take the opportunity to shoot great content when it presents. Enjoy the stunning Manta Rays, sitting like space voyaging battleships above the coral planets. By the way, I highly recommend Lady Elliot Island. It&# […]
We love to help friends out where we can… so when ‘Underwater Earth’ our Catlin Seaview Survey partners needed a simple new website, we came to the party and put a little something together for them. In addition to the slick sideways scrolling site, sitting over our favourite over/under panorama, we put together a short virtual tour with some of the best work we’ve done together to date. In the virtual tour above you’ll see Galapagos SeaLions, Lady Elliot Island, Ma […]
We recently produced virtual tours of the Oracle at Broadbeach. Beautiful buildings.
Amazing beach house form RSL.
The Galapagos National Park is a mecca for nature lovers with amazing biodiversity to be found both above and below the water. Together with Google, we worked with locally based scientific and conservation groups The Charles Darwin Foundation and the Galapagos National Park Service in the area. Of course our primary area of interest is what lives beneath the water, the Sea Lions being a very playful highlight for all involved. This is one of the best underwater panoramas we’ve ever produce […]
Another fantastic house project from RSL.
Underwater Ship Wrecks are fascinating to view, and often encompass equally fascinating stories. The Antilla was another casualty of World War II, when hostilities broke out between Germany and the Netherlands. Here’s Wikipedia’s take on the events that lead to her 1939 sinking: On 9 April Germany invaded Denmark and Norway. This increased the fear that the Netherlands would also be invaded, so on 12 April Dutch authorities in Aruba confined Antilla’s crew to their ship. On 10 […]
We recently had the great pleasure of spending time on the road shooting the wonders of the Queensland Coast from Bundaberg to Yeppoon, 2 island of the Great Barrier Reef – Great Keppel Island and Lady Musgrave Island, and 500km inland.. Canarvon Gorge. All stunning landscapes, all beautiful places, all areas I’d like to return to and spend some leisurely time. Above you’ll find a quick taste of the areas we shot over 7 days.
Winning this prize presents you with a difficult choice. Do you take the stunning beach front luxury penthouse apartment on the Gold Coast. Or do you take the luxury house in Sydney. Either way we had to produce Sydney Virtual Tours and a Gold Coast tour as usual. www.rslartunion.com.au
I spent a couple of weeks in the Raja Ampat region of Indonesia with UWE (Underwater Earth) our Catlin Seaview Survey partners. We were there to appear in an IMAX 3D Underwater documentary about the region… well they were, I was there to make sure everything worked. In addition we took the time to survey some of the astounding coral in the region and visit with the local owners and care takers of the reef. It was an amazing trip, check it out above. Imax behind the scenes from Krabi Imagi […]
Another triple play for RSL Prize Homes… win this one, and you get 3 apartments. As usual we needed to do a Brisbane Virtual Tour, Sunshine Coast Virtual Tour and a tour just down the road from our offices on the Gold Coast. www.rslartunion.com.au
I’ve had the privilege of staying at and photographing the wonderful facilities and region of O’Reillys Rainforst Retreat a number of times now. This is my 3rd shoot with them over the past couple of years, this time to cover some of their new facilities. The family has accompanied me on most of the trips, and truly loved every minute. At least a couple of times per year the kids ask if I can do some more work there so we can stay again
We shot this beautiful Plantation Home for a Mater Charity recently. Proceeds from the auction go to helping sick children at the Mater Chrildrens Hospital. This tour includes hotspots and a floorplan in the Desktop (flash) version. http://houseforlife.com.au
I was in Perth recently shooting virtual tours of hotels for the Ascott Group. Of course when I wasn’t shooting inside, I was out shooting Perth Virtual Tours. Around the city and out to Fremantle. It was a quick but enjoyable trip, I hope to get back sometime in the not too distant future.
Darren Paine one of my oldest friends, a good buddy from primary school, recently had his first photographic gallery showing. He’s a wedding and portrait photographer, so he showcased his portraits. The showing coincided with the year of his 40th birthday… so he managed to tick an item off his bucket list… gallery showing by 40. Of course I had to shoot an Art Gallery Virtual Tour to immortalise the event. Well done old mate.
RSL Prize Homes are always beautiful, and well they should be at over $1.5 million each. But this one… it’s location, layout… it was something special. Only 10 minutes drive from our current home… on the water front… stunning design. We were hooked. www.rslartunion.com.au
3 more luxury apartments for RSL Prize Homes. A Sydney Virtual Tour followed by a Brisbane Virtual tour and Gold Coast tour were produced for this draw.
Once again RSL are offering the choice of two outstanding luxury places if you win the draw. This time the options are a beautiful place in Balmain, Sydney. The home is about 100m from the ferry terminal which goes directly across the water to Sydney City… convenient to say the least. The other is a big luxury apartment high up in one of the tallest apartment buildings in the world… the Q1 on the Gold Coast. Once again a difficult choice… which would you choose? www.rslartunio […]
We spent many hours shooting into the night at the Sports Club, the Bowls Club & a Function Room they have. When we ran out of places to shoot we needed to wait until all the punters on the pokies cleared out at 11.30pm, so we could shoot the gaming room.
A very cool place we’ve photographed a couple of times now.
I spent the day photographing this gorgeous home on the Sunshine Coast… the best bit was eating lunch while a gentle sea breeze cooled us on the patio
Our very first project with RSL Prize Homes, and what a project it was. 1st prize was a complete apartment complex with 4 homes. An extra large one for the winner to occupy and 3 others to rent out for income. We shot a great number of panoramas for this project, but only 6 appear in the final tour. The client was still in the mindset imposed by most virtual tour companies… where you pay per panorama. Of course these days they use most of the panoramas we shoot… usually 10 – 2 […]
2 more stunning display homes for Clarendon Homes NSW.
After a few months working with the great team at UnderWater Earth, we’ve launched the pilot for their Seaview project. catlinseaviewsurvey.com/ seaview.htm – Original Link Location
Once again I am judging the EPSON International Pano Awards, along with some legendary pano photographers. I enjoy this process immensely, my only wish is for more time to spend up to a day, marinating in the fantastic work the panorama photographers submit. http://www.thepanoawards.com/
