Robert Agnel – Owner and Professional Photographer with Ottawa Panoramas
Ottawa Panorama’s mission is to provide a comprehensive and entertaining photographic view of Canada’s capital city.
1998While working for a systems integrator and value added reseller of PC and Apple products in Kanata Ontario I discovered a unique Apple application called QuickTime Virtual Reality Studio. I could see the possibilities of this new digital photographic technology and decided to venture out and start my own business.
1999 Amarak Internet Marketing
Began producing QuickTime Virtual Reality panorama movies. The kit needed to create interactive panorama movies included, a Nikon Coolpix 950 camera with Nikon wide angle lens, panorama head, tripod, computer with Photoshop and QTVR Studio. Today we use Nikon digital SLR cameras with fisheye lens, modern panorama heads, the latest stitching software and virtual reality tour generators for html5 and wordpress sites. Our panorama movies were shown on local web sites. Visitors to these web sites looking for images of Ottawa contacted me asking for copyright free images of Ottawa for print and digital use.
