Virtual Tour Launch (x 52): New York State Parks and DEC Campgrounds

We are super psyched to share the latest virtual tours of 56 more New York State Parks and DEC Campgrounds. Last year, we shot and produced tours for 41 parks, and this past summer, we worked with them again to create tours for 52 more beautiful parks.

Our strategy was to divide and conquer, with Jared taking the Adirondacks, the Saratoga Region and some of the Hudson Valley and NYC parks. I (Lisa) worked my way from Hudson Valley westward to the Central Region  then to the Finger Lakes and the Western NY Region.

All of the parks are unique and beautiful, but some of our favorites were Watkins Glen, Bear Mountain, Ausable PointWellesley Island and Little Pond. Also, take a tour of Riverbank, which is right in the heart of Manhattan and was inspired by urban rooftop designs in Japan. All the tours feature 360 degree spins, photo slideshows, text descriptions and park info.

Let us know which are your favorites!

Virtual Tour Launch: St. Mark’s Episcopal Day School

It was awesome to work with the team over at St. Mark’s Day School in our own hometown, Jacksonville, Florida. Theirs is a Premium Tour with 11 spins in and around their beautiful campus. The students were a lot of fun to work with too and we think the tour captures the academic, spiritual AND playful energy of campus life. Please take a look and tell us what you think!

Highlight your town in your campus virtual tour

We are excited by the trend where schools showcase their town center in the campus virtual tour. Face it, students who come to board in your schools will not only be immersed in campus life, but also in your community. Whether your school is situated in an idyllic rural setting, a residential community or an urban city, chances are you have unique common spaces where students will love to congregate and hotspots they will frequent.

Lisa shooting a 360 in downtown Wolfeboro.

I recently visited Brewster Academy in Wolfeboro, NH and took a shot of their amazing waterfront with boat rentals, ice cream shops, public docks and bustling boutiques–all a stone’s skip away from campus. Look for that addition to their tour to launch soon.

Other schools that have added shots of their downtown areas are The Hun School in Princeton, NJ and McCallie School in Chattanooga.

Notice how we added the shots to the campus maps.

Here are links to check out those tours:

Virtual Tour Launch: Ridley College

Ridley College, is in St. Catharines, Ontario – near Niagara Falls.  We met them at the TABS conference in Boston, and photographed the school during a polar vortex cold snap that saw temperatures in the single digits (~Brrr~).  We will be going back to the school in the spring to shoot more locations.  Maybe the weather will be warmer?

The school is beautiful.  Some compare the dining hall to the great hall in Harry Potter.  We were honored to bring the school to life online.  Enjoy!  http://www.ridleycollege.com/map

Virtual Tour Launch: American Hebrew School

The American Hebrew School is located in Greensboro, NC. While photographing the school, a couple of things jumped out at us: 1) Their classrooms are unique. There are no desks, so the students sit around a large table and have discussions – like in a conference room. 2) Their buildings are very airy and spacious. We wanted our panoramas to showcase those features. Mission accomplished.   Take a look – http://circlescapes.biz/AHA/tour
