  • Present the results obtained with our software solutions and present business field where they can be applied
  • To put the photographer in touch with potentials customers

For this fifth case study, Fabio Musio photographer uses the virtual tour and Panotour Pro 2.0 to promote Oglethorpe’s campus (United States). Let us meet with this brilliant photographer!

Fabio, could you introduce yourself?

My name is Fabio Musio, Italian photographer and webdesigner based in Atlanta, United States. My passion for photography, webdesign and new technology converged to 360 panoramic photography years ago and are now my core service and my main passion. I love the challenge of capturing the entire atmosphere of a location through a panoramic image and I strongly believe that in the future this is going to be the main media.

Kolor team really liked the virtual tour of the campus. We found it simple and really well compatible with your subject, congratulations! Could you give us more details about the virtual tour?

Working on a virtual tour of a place so unique, vast and with so many locations was very difficult since the beginning of the planning. First, I had to study the sunlight during the different times of the day, location by location. Second I had to become a weatherman during this crazy summer. More than once I was shooting minutes before a storm was hitting the campus. I needed also to climb to rooftops with my equipment and my loyal companion, a 6 meter carbon fiber pole.

I consider the photo-shooting the easiest part of the job, even if it took me about 1 hour per 360. Post-production has been massive: I really wanted to show the details of the campus using HDR without making the imagery look fake or cartoonish. I spent several hours stitching and preparing the images and thanks God I could listen to Radio Monte Carlo and Nick the Nightfly: I cannot work at the computer without it.

What kind of equipment did you use to make this virtual tour?

Camera and lens Accessories Software
  • Nikon D800E
  • Sigma 8-15mm fisheye
  • RAW processing: Adobe Lightroom
  • Stitching: PtGui
  • Virtual tour: Panotour Pro 2.0

Do you have other projects you would like to share with us?

I just started a collaboration in Italy to provide high quality virtual tours. You can find more information at www.360graphicstudio.com. Also, I have another experimental project that I’m working on but it’s still kind-of-secret. What I can share is that is going to be a very big virtual tour (or maybe I should call it giga-virtual tour :) ).

To keep in touch with Fabio located in the United States / Italy:
