Horizon Imaging

Architectural photos, promotional film and virtual tour produced for Your Beautiful Kitchen

Horizon Imaging was recently commissioned to produce a set of promotional imagery to mark the opening of a luxury kitchen and bathroom design showroom in Mytchett, Surrey — Your Beautiful Kitchen. 
The brief was simple — they needed a set of beautiful photographs of their new showroom, an engaging promotional film of the showroom to give people a flavour of what it’s like to visit, and finally a virtual tour to allow their website visitors to explore the showroom from the comfort of their homes. Ultimately, all this imagery will have the same purpose — to whet the appetites of the website visitors and to encourage them to come and visit the showroom! 
After a quick look around the showroom to ensure it was as tidy as possible, we first spent an hour or so taking various photographs of the various installations around the showroom — a few samples of which can be found below:

After all the photographs were taken, we walked around the showroom again using firstly our hand-held stabilised 3-axis camera gimbal, and then again using our motorised pan/tilt slider, capturing an array of dynamic shots focusing on different areas of the installations. These clips were then cut together, colour-graded and set to backing music. The final promotional film can be viewed below:

Once the photographs and video footage has been taken, we walked around the showroom one final time (!) with our Matterport Virtual Tour 3D camera, capturing 360 degree imagery and depth information throughout the showroom. This data was then post-processed and the resulting virtual tour can be viewed below.

Christian Broom, the founder and owner of Your Beautiful Kitchen, was ecstatic with the imagery we produced for his website, and he recently sent us the following very kind testimonial about the services we provided: 

“I would like to say a huge thank you to David Hogg of Horizon Imaging who has recently produced a 360-degree virtual tour of our kitchen and bathroom showroom, as well as outstanding still photographs and a truly beautiful video. The hard work, time, trouble and effort (even coming back on a sunnier day to get better pictures of the outside) David has put into this project is clearly evident in the final products he has produced for me.

I feel extremely lucky to have known him at this time, as I truly believe you would have to go a long way to find his level of work and dedication to his craft anywhere else. So thank you David for everything you have done.”
