WHAT IS HDR PHOTOGRAPHY?
HDR stands for High Dynamic Range. HDR is a range of techniques geared toward representing more contrast in pictures. Non-HDR cameras take pictures at a single exposure level with a limited contrast range. This results in the loss of detail in bright or dark areas of a picture, depending on whether the camera had a low or high exposure setting. HDR compensates for this loss of detail by taking multiple pictures at different exposure levels and intelligently stitching them together so that we eventually arrive at a picture that is representative in both dark and bright areas.
WHAT IS SEO?
SEO stands for Search Engine Optimization. SEO is the process of improving a websites visibility to search engines. The better your site’s visibility or “Page Rank”, the higher your site will appear when users search the internet. Higher search results means more traffic which relates to more sales.
HOW MUCH DOES A PHOTO SHOOT COST?
The cost of the photo shoot depends on the size of your business. Each location can have anywhere from 1-30 panorama locations. Each panorama location can be a maximum of about 15 feet apart. Photo shoots start at $350 which includes 1 panorama inside of your business, and 10 product or merchandise shots. From there the pricing generally goes up depending on…
- The Number of Panoramas
- The Size of the Business
- Business Floor Plan
- Travel Time
- Special Marketing Requests
Each photo shoot location will be quoted before the shoot is scheduled. The fee for a photo shoot is collected at the time of the shoot. The business owner or decision maker will need to be available at the time of the shoot to sign a standard release form.
WHO OWNS THE PROPERTY RIGHTS TO THE TOUR AND PHOTOS AFTER IT IS DONE?
The business owner gets full access to the photos and virtual tour. The tour can be embedded on your website, Facebook or blog. If for some reason you would like the photos or virtual tour removed from your business listing, it can be done at any time.
CAN A BUSINESS UPDATE A VIRTUAL TOUR?
Yes. We can reshoot your business as you grow or make changes. Unfortunately there will be a charge for an additional photo shoot.
