In the last month we have started to offer a brand new service which perfectly complements our other property-centric photography and filming services — fully interactive 3D Matterport virtual tours. 
 
If you haven't seen one of these tours before, be prepared to be astounded! Matterport tours are created by scanning every space inside a property with a special 3D camera which captures not only visual imagery but also depth data. This data is then compiled into a fully-navigable 3D model of the property in question which can be rotated in 360 degrees, and allows you to jump to any point in the property at the click of a mouse.

We are currently in the process of producing a number of these models so you can see a range of tours of different property styles, at which point we'll be updating our Virtual Tour page with information about this new service. 
 
... but in the mean time we couldn't resist sharing the following model with you which we were commissioned to produce a few weeks ago by Petersfield-based developer 6A Vision Homes
 
This 4-bedroom town house is one of 6A Vision Homes' flagship properties and is located in the heart of Petersfield, Hampshire. To the rear there's a beautifully-designed courtyard garden / outdoor living space, complete with two fire pits and two seating areas. 
 
To explore the model, follow these simple instructions: 
 
Click and drag using the left mouse button to rotate the model 
Click and drag using the right mouse button to shift the model horizontally and vertically 
Click once in any part of the model to jump to that room 
Click and drag using the left mouse button to look around and left-click within the room to move in that direction 
You can jump back to the 3D model at any time by clicking on the 3D building icon at the bottom left of the viewer 
 
Enjoy! 
 
Click the 'Play' button to start exploring this immersive virtual tour. To explore the space, use your left and right-mouse buttons to click and drag the model around and click in the model to jump to that point in the property. From there you can continue to click and drag to look around, and click in any direction to 'walk' through the property. 
Our client, 6A Vision Homes were delighted with the resulting tour and have kindly sent us the following testimonial: 
"We have been most impressed with the Matterport Tour that has been produced by David from Horizon Imaging, despite being a little hesitant and unsure at the outset. It has enabled us to demonstrate our show home, and also show garden, digitally in the clearest possible way. It is not only useful for marketing this unit, but also marketing our brand, showcasing finishes and has captured this home in pristine condition for ever more! The presentation of the 3D model is also a great interactive presentation that until now we have not been able to offer. We will definitely use the service again! Thanks again David!" 
What's that? You'd like to see another tour of another stunning property? 
 
Well, seeing as you asked so politely! 
 
This is an incredible conversion of a Dairy Barn on a working farm in Minsted near Midhurst, West Sussex. 
 
The property has been meticulously restored and modernised, and is one of the best conversions we've ever seen. The central showpiece of the property is the floating bridge which connects the two bedrooms on the first floor whilst providing views down into the spacious and bright living room. 
 
We photographed this property for the estate agent Jackson Stops, and whilst there we captured this Matterport tour. 
 
You can see some of the photos we took for the estate agent's listing here:
