Janie Fitzgerald | Founder / Photographer / Director.
As founder of Axis Images, VR photographer Janie Fitzgerald is known for her pioneering work in 360º VR panoramic photography. Commissioned by Apple to shoot the Salk Institute in 360º for their groundbreaking release of QTVR in 1995, she was one of the first few photographers to shoot QuickTime VR, the first digital format for 360º photographic virtual reality.

As her VR projects quickly became noticed, she created a website to promote other VR photographers worldwide. Two projects such as, sponsored by Apple and Eastman Kodak and later on,, were viewed as exhibits of the early days of 360º VR imaging.
