Creating our immersive Matterport Virtual Tours is an involved process which varies greatly depending on the size of the property to be scanned, and the complexity of the contents of the building. 
 
When quoting to produce our virtual tours, we will generally ask for the square meterage of the property, as this will give us a good idea of the overall size of the space. We’ll also ask where the property is located, how many floors the property has, whether the property is furnished, whether any outdoor spaces or outbuildings need to be captured too, and exactly which parts of the property need to be included in the tour.

When it comes to winning business online, the key is to stand out. But if your ‘wow’ factor can only be seen when someone visits your physical premises, how do you hook them in without it? At Horizon Imaging, we have the answer — virtual tours. 
 
A virtual tour can enchant your prospects like few other things can, making them fall in love with your venue (or your business) from afar. They also encourage engagement with your website, and when online engagement could be the difference between you and your competitors, there is no better way to showcase your business.

When it comes to choosing any kind of service provider for your business, it can be a bit overwhelming. There are so many things to think about, and so many companies out there you could choose to work with. Things can get particularly complicated if you’re looking to commission aerial or ground-level photography or videography work to promote your business as there are a huge number of providers that can offer bits and pieces of what you need. 
 
But to get the most consistent results, and to make the most of your investment, the most cost-effective and hassle-free solution is to use a single provider for everything.

We were recently commissioned by luxury property developer Hedge Hunter to take a set of promotional photographs of their latest project, the stunning 'The Bridge' development of flats in the heart of Farnham, Surrey. The striking golden and cream building occupies an enviable position with views over the River Wey and the Gostrey Meadow public park, as well as having a large frontage onto the bustling South Street. 
 
The brief was to capture: external photographs of the development, showing how it nestles into the surrounding landscape; internal photographs and a Matterport Virtual Tour of one of their show flats; and a promotional film of the development.

Sometimes it's the smallest projects which require the most care and attention when photographing them for your portfolio. Such was the case with this small kitchen extension that we photographed for Reading-based architects practice Tait Architects. 
 
The brief was to capture the extension from a variety of angles, from inside and out, both during daytime and at dusk to show off the internal and external lighting. This involved visiting the site twice on two separate days as the daytime shots had to be taken in the morning to get sun on the main rear facade of the house and extension, and the dusk shots ... obviously at dusk!
