What a strange year this has been. Instead of encouraging people to come and visit the beautiful Peak District, we've been encouraging people not to come, while the country - along with the rest of the world - battles against Coronavirus. So, while we have temporarily not been able to run our Peak District tours, we have set up a new side to the business, building on our landscape photography experience. Say hello to virtual tours. Say hello to Peak 360 Photography.
360° camera technology has advance quickly over recent years. "Tiny Planet' images, such as the one above, have started to become regularly featured on eye-catching social media feeds, as more and more photos are taken from the opposite end of an invisible selfie stick.
Take the picture above for example. This was taken on a 360 camera, positioned on a 70cm long pole, which was held in my hand. (By the way, my head isn't quite so disproportionate to the rest of my body in real life. At least, I hope not...)
We plan to use the 360 photography to share some of the great viewpoints which feature in our real life tours too, as soon as we can safely access the sites and locations. We'll feature these in future blog posts here, so please keep an eye out for them.
For now, here's a quick tour of a site of rich historical interest in my home village. What was once the largest inland port in England is now a peaceful landscape of leisure boats and wildlife.
Feel free to explore Bugsworth Basin. In Buxworth. Don't worry, all will become clear...
As the saying goes, when life throws you lemons, make lemonade. Live For The Hills was born out of redundancy, back in 2016 and has gone on to become an award winning business, which we are looking forward to building on. So, adversity has now given rise to another business.
So, it would be absolutely great if you would have a look at our new website, www.peak360photography.co.uk.
We're looking forward to running both the real tours and the virtual tours along side each other soon. Perhaps we can welcome you on one or the other! In the meantime, please keep safe and well.
