For each project, we dive into the subject to understand how to best create a virtual tour presentation that will be engaging and inspiring to visitors. The virtual environments are beautifully featured in 360º panoramas, navigational 3D maps, ambient sounds, music and narration, videos, and details that make the story and place come to life.
Our clients are motion picture and multimedia companies, advertising agencies, hotels and restaurants, technology corporations and independent artists. We have worked with companies such as Apple Inc., Carnegie Hall, Warner Brothers, the Los Angeles Metropolitan Transit Authority and the National Park Service.
Janie Fitzgerald | photography, creative director.
As founder of Axis Images, Los Angeles based still photographer Janie Fitzgerald is known for her pioneering work in 360º VR photography. Commissioned by Apple to shoot the Salk Institute for their groundbreaking release of QTVR in 1995, she was one of the first few photographers to ever shoot QuickTime VR.
Before 360º panoramas ever became widely seen online, she created internet based art projects to promote other VR photographers worldwide. Two projects such as VrView.com, sponsored by Apple and Eastman Kodak and later on, SacredWorlds.com, are viewed as exhibits of the early days of Interactive VR imaging.
