FAQ’s

How long does the photo shoot it take?

Photography occurs with minimal disruption and time.  We bring no big lights or large camera gear.  The professional photographer works with the available lighting to capture the scene as exactly as they see it.  Typically a photographer will capture a particular scene eg Hotel Suite in under 15 mins.  So if you have commission THREE panos the photographer will be finished in 45mins.

When will my Interactive Panoramic Pictures be ready?

Depending on the current work load your virtual tours should be ready in less than 7 days

What do I need to prepare?

Virtual Visit Tours is not responsible for the presentation of the property for photography but will make efforts to improve the presentation of the property from a 360° point of view.

We ask all our customers to prepare the relevant areas that are being captured in 360° to your own exacting standards.  Before a photography session you may wish to consider these hints for presentation:  Hotel Lobby area de-cluttered, beds made properly, cushions/pillows arranged restaurant tables set.  Fresh flowers and filled fruit bowls can be arranged to add points of interest to pictures.  For external shots be mindful of scaffolding/building work which would detract from the image.

Imagine the photographer as a potential guest. You would want to show it in the best light to secure their business.  Remember, the images we take are fully immersive 360° pictures.  We are allowing the potential visitor to (virtually) step into the scene and see it as if they were there.

Can I use them on my website?

Yes!  A single non-transferable license to use the virtual tours for the marketing of the property is allocated under the agreement.  Each customer receives a unique web url (iFrame) that holds your virtual tour. This allows you to embed the tours on your own website and use in any marketing activities for the business such as trade road shows or email campaigns.

Think of your virtual tour as an interactive marketing tool for your business.  Include your Virtual Tour url link in your email signatures.  Merge your online and offline marketing using QR Codes linking to your virtual tour on your brochures.

What is not covered is the distribution of your virtual tour for embedding on other 3rd party websites.  Please speak to us before you do this.

Can I upload them to youtube?

No.  Our 360° interactive panoramic picture are NOT video.  They do not run in a linear fashion as with traditional video but instead allow the user to be in control of their experience.  This element of control and freedom builds consumer confidence in your property and motivates decision making – much more so than with traditional video.

Downpatrick Town

We flew our drone over Downpatrick town and captured a couple of aerial 360° photographs. Look out for the marker points in the aerial virtual tours, some of which will allow you to jump from the sky down into some of the various visitor attractions found in the town.
