The New York State Park System operates 179 parks, spanning from Niagara Falls to the tip of Long Island.  In the summer of 2013, Circlescapes photographed, and built virtual tours for 41 of them.

Virtual Tour Launch – St. Luke’s Episcopal Hospital at The Vintage

St. Luke’s Episcopal Health System runs multiple hospitals in the Houston area. They recently asked Circlescapes to create a virtual tour for one in an area called The Vintage.

Virtual Tour and Website Launch – Heirloom Timber Framing

Heirloom Timer Framing (http://www.heirloomtimberframing.com) is a cool company that builds timber framed houses and structures.  They had a website that was out of date, and needed some help, so they called us to revitalize it.  They also wanted more control over the content, so we created a site based on the WordPress CMS architecture.  But […]

Virtual Tour Launch – Kaiser Permanente

Kaiser Permanente of Georgia has recently completed renovations of two Comprehensive Medical Centers (CMC).  So naturally, they called on Circlescapes to bring them to life in 360 degrees.  The CMCs are bright, colorful, and really photogenic. And the staff there couldn’t be nicer.  Thanks for a fun time in the Atlanta area, KP! http://xnet.kp.org/ga/facilitytours/townpark/ http://xnet.kp.org/ga/facilitytours/gwinnett/

Arizona!

Recently, I traveled to Arizona to shoot some hospital virtual tours for Select Medical.  My family decided to join me so we could play for a few days in Sedona and the Grand Canyon.  Of course, I had to shoot some panoramas while I was there, so friends and family could experience the awesome beauty […]

not a bad view

I (Lisa) am currently making the rounds in Michigan for a group of hospitals. Today I am in Muskegon, MI perched right above Lake Michigan at the lovely (and very affordable) Shoreline Inn and Conference Center. It is a gorgeous Sunday afternoon and I lucked out with this great view and sweet suite. Well, I […]

corporate housing by owner (CHBO) recommends Circlescapes

I list my rental property on the website, Corporate Housing By Owner (CHBO). It is really the best for advertising furnished rentals and I get a TON of inquiries. Since my virtual tour really helps my ad (of course I have a Circlescapes Virtual Tour), I mentioned to my account rep that Circlescapes should be […]

Virtual Tour Launch – The Howe School

When the Howe School (which is in Indiana) approached us about a virtual tour, we thought that they’d want to wait until Spring, when the weather was better. They said no – they actually wanted to show what the school looked like in the snow because a) snow is nice, and b) snow is reality […]

Mi Casa Su Casa

When we travel for work, we like to get the best possible deal so we can pass the savings on to our clients. Problem is, we also like sweet accommodations that include clean sheets, a safe, close location, peace and quiet and (wait, the holy grail) a kitchen. Airbnb has come through for us on […]
