Keep up with the latest & greatest from Bay Area VR
It has been quite a while since I have posted. In fact my last blog post (and only my third ever) was on March 12, 2012.
I decided to get our for this beautiful December weather today to take the panorama shown below.

I can not believe it has been a year since the historical tsunami from Japan that looked like it was straight out of a science fiction movie. The photos and video of the actual event, and it’s aftermath, were surreal … in an unfortunate way because many lives were lost and the environment took a major hit with the radiation leak at the nuclear power plants.
On March 11, 2011, I took my panoramic gear with me to Roberts Road in Pacifica, CA where I assumed that the residents of my city may be in anticipation of the possible tsunami on the Pacific Coast. My assumption was correct, and there were people lined up for almost 2 miles to see if the Linda Mar and Rockaway beach would have a surge from the Tsunami. I decided to take a vantage point form the bottom of the hill to the top (approximately every 100+ yards) to capture the mood of the morning. The tsunami was supposed to arrive during the exact same hour that I shot the images and you can see many people on the phone through out the photos reporting back to their loved ones.
As a spectator I can share that the only event I witnessed was the tide going from a very low tide, to what looked to be a high tide, during that hour but nothing else. Nothing like what hit Santa Cruz and Crecsent City.

When it comes to describing a transformation of a space through media, Bay Area VR may have just found the holy grail – a 360 degree tour that shows the “before” and “after” of a project.
Look at how Mueller Nicholls has leveraged the power of 360 degree tours for their online portfolio as a sales tool.Read More»
Property management companies are faced with a complex process of asset management (financial health of the property), property management (physical health of the property), and relationship management (the tenants of the property). On top of all that responsibility lies marketing the property when there are new openings. If there is not a lot of visual representation about the properties being leased, then there will be a lot of unanswered questions about the unit. This can lead to phone calls and emails with lots of redundant questions … questions that could be answered if the potential client “could just see the apartment”. That is where Bay Area VR comes in.
By utilizing high resolution 360 degree tours and still photography, property management companies can give a comprehensive visual overview of the property being listed, which will lead to well informed potential clients. It takes a lot of time to drive across town, wait for a client, open up the unit … only to find that they dislike it. Why not have real qualified or informed leads instead? Wouldn’t that be a better use of one’s time?Read More»
