Michelle Chaplow spoke at the TEDx event in Marbella in March 2013, alongside such top names as Michelin-starred chef and international restaurateur Dani Garcia. Her chosen theme was The Importance of Photography for Luxury Hotels and Destinations.

To illustrate (literally) the keynote speech Michelle choose Andalucia, Spain as her featured destination, explaining that on the world-class tourism stage, this region - which is full of stunning natural attractions and historic monuments - needs to send out strong visual messages. Michelle explained how good visuals make a huge difference in terms of creating an image for hotels and destinations, especially in today’s mobile multi-media world. She was delighted to talk about the photography subjects for which she has great passion: hotels and travel. Michelle’s talk was well received, with excellent feedback from many quarters.

"Michelle Chaplow, photographer, illustrated her talk with photos used to lesser or greater effect in advertising materials, proving beyond doubt that good photography can make all the difference when it comes to promoting hotels or holiday destinations".

This week here at Virtual Vue we came across a fantastic virtual tour taken by photographer Gerald Donovan of the city of Dubai from on top of the Burj Khalifa building.   This gigapixel tour consists of 48 panoramic images each with a resolution of 80 megapixels!

This remarkable achievement from Donovan is a fantastic advertisement for virtual tours, and shows that they are becoming increasingly more in demand.  Donovan taking virtual tours to this level could mean a whole new realm for interactive photography, and who knows this form could be the new way we explore the world; at the click of a finger!

Composed of over 70 individual photos, it recreates the view Tom Cruise made famous as he sat at the tower’s peak during the filming of Mission Impossible Four, ‘Ghost Protocol’.
