Canadian eh

We just finished our second contract with North Strategic Media for social media content for Tim Horton's coffee franchise. I thought I'd share some of the images with you.

Below is a sceenshot from a 360 image taken a the Loop at Bannerman Park.
Canadian eh! 

The imagery this time was seasonal to reflect the different times of year, in this case summer, fall and winter!


This contracted called for 360 videos, 360 images, , still photography, cinematographs, parallax videos and looping videos.

One of the most iconic areas of St John's.

Click here for the full 360 degree experience!

One thing I like about 360 degree images is that you can make multiple still photos from them. You can extract screen shots from a variety of angles as well as make photos for example Little Planet images, all from the same initial image.

Grebe's Nest VR

Virtual Reality has come to Bell Island Newfoundland. One of my favorite places to photograph in Newfoundland is Bell Island and I just love "Hidden Beach" and the Grebe's Nest area.

If you've never been to these areas virtual reality is the next best thing to being there. Or in some cases it may be better. After posting this tour on social media a little while ago one guy replied, to my post on Twitter, that he had been there and a rock had fallen from the cliff and hit him.

You can get virtual reality headsets like Google Cardboard for as little as $5. You simply insert your phone and your ready to go. Other sets which also use your phone can be purchased for as little as $25. You can also get fully self contained VR headsets from companies such as Oculus and Samsung.

Navigation

At Newfoundland Virtual we use what is galled "gaze navigation"to get from one area to another. You place the + symbol (which is in the center of your display) over the "hotspot" for about 3 seconds to activate it. On this tour hotspots are displayed as pulsing red circles.

One of the fun things about this virtual tour is that you can go through the tunnel connecting Hidden Beach to Grebe's Nest (and you won't get wet or messy)!

Hope you enjoyed the tour!

AMEX at Mallard Cottage

I did a recent behind the scenes photoshoot for an American Express video at Mallard Cottage. The man doing the video was Cody Westman from Cats Eye Cinema. Mallard Cottage is a cottage-turned-restaurant located in Quidi Vidi Village in the east end of St John's Newfoundland. It offers a changing menu of locally sourced seasonal meals.








I love doing this kind of work. Get to meet lots of great people, professionals who are very good at what they do.

Air Avalon

Although I've lived on the Avalon Peninsula most of my life I can't say I've seen all it's coastline. That's not necessarily a bad thing, I see it as an opportunity to do more exploring and photography. The Avalon is a large peninsula over 9,220 square kilometers with the most amazing coastline and would be an island unto itself if it wasn't for the small isthmus that connects it to the rest of Newfoundland.

Over the last year I've compiled series of videos of some of my favorite places on earth. Hope you enjoy it!
