Create professional virtual tours in-house at a fraction of the normal cost.
We developed training packages to teach companies how to use 360º cameras because we recognise there are individuals, companies and entire industries that will find it either unsustainable, or totally impractical for one reason or another - to hire in pro photographers every time they want to create Virtual Tours.

Our 360º camera training service is aimed at anyone that wants to create Virtual Tours on a regular, ad-hoc basis.
Clients include hoteliers with large portfolios, teams operating in remote locations, retailers and property agents - our service enables them to cost effectively manage all or most of the production process in-house.
The package includes 1:1 training with a Google Trusted Photographer, all the equipment you’ll need to operate in the field, and full after sales support.

This is an example of a Virtual Tour shot by Tom, a negotiator at Goodwin Ellis Property Services. It’s a perfect example of what you can achieve when you train with us.
Tom had never used a 360 camera before meeting us, but by the end of the training session we’d taught him a process he can use to photograph a variety of properties quickly and competently. Now he shoots all Goodwin Ellis's Virtual Tours himself.
We provide the tips and teach all the tricks you’ll need. The cameras we supply are so easy to use, once you’re trained you can capture a house like this in under half an hour.
Processing images is a little more tricky if you want to create something that looks professional.
Goodwin Ellis send all their 360º images to us after every shoot for processing.
We created a skin especially for Goodwin Ellis that we use on all their Virtual Tours. The skin contains their logo, email address and a telephone number.
During the processing stage we improve the image quality and remove the tripod along with any blemishes using Photoshop.
We join all the shots together using special software, create hotspots and add a navigation system so the user can move around the property easily. Finally we upload the Virtual Tour to the private hosting area on our website, and host it for free as part of the service.
After processing we email all the codes they need back to them, they can then post the Virtual Tour straight onto RightMove and embed it onto their company website.
See how it all works
We've created a short video to provide a quick overview of how our 360º camera training packages work.
You can see what a photographer and trainee do when they're going through the process & hopefully it will give you a good idea of how you'll be able to do it yourself.
Theta 360 Camera supplied - Full package £595 + VAT
Our package includes all the equipment you need for 360º DIY photography. You’ll receive the latest Theta SC 360 camera in a choice of four colours, a tripod and carry cases.
AFTER SALES SUPPORT
You’re not tied into any ongoing contract with us and there’s no monthly fees to pay for hosting, but we will show you how to send images to us in case you want us to create & host any Virtual Tours for you in the future.
Once you're trained we charge a one off fee on a pay as you go basis to create & host Virtual Tours for you. We charge based on the number of shots received & processed. Call us for more details.
Learning how to photograph in 360 is the easy part, but panoramic images are unlike normal photographs. To achieve true 360º functionality the images have to be hosted. When you want to use more than one image & create a Virtual Tour it gets even more complicated because you need to use special software programmes. There are various software options you can buy & train yourself to use - if you want to handle the whole process yourself, but why bother?
At 360 Upgrade we offer a photo processing service to clients we've trained, we handle the whole process for you - image processing, Virtual Tour creation and hosting, there are set packages for up to 6, 10 or 15 shots, try us!
