The University of California, Riverside hired Invision Studio to photograph 360 Virtual Tours, Architectural Photography, and Lifestyle Photography of nearly every square inch of their university including Campus Life, Dining, Conferences and Events, and Housing. We have worked with many different teams within the University over the years on many separate projects in order to accomplish this tremendous undertaking.
The University of California, Riverside is one of 10 universities within the prestigious University of California system, and the only UC located in Inland Southern California. Widely recognized as one of the most ethnically diverse research universities in the nation, UCR currently hosts about 22,000 students, with 900 instructional faculty, including 660 ladder-rank faculty. Chancellor Kim A. Wilcox and Provost Paul J. D’Anieri are implementing plans for an aggressive expansion of the faculty, planning to bring an additional 300 ladder-rank faculty onboard. The campus is in the midst of a tremendous growth spurt with new and remodeled facilities coming on-line on a regular basis.
In order to facilitate the visual marketing side of their expansion, UCR called on Invision Studio to photograph the 360 Virtual Tours, Architectural Photography, and Lifestyle Photography of their entire campus.
UCR has been least known schools in the University of California system, which is unfortunate because they are home to one of the most renowned engineering and science departments in the nation. Furthermore, they are home to one of the most beautiful campuses in California, with new state of the art classrooms, dining, and housing facilities going up yearly. In order to help the rest of the world see this, they hired Invision Studio to create a 360° Virtual Tour walkthrough of every part of their campus as well as photograph every facet of their incredible University.
We photographed the classrooms, buildings, libraries and common areas of their campus along with their dining halls, markets, and stores and even shot their on campus residence halls and off campus apartments. We created custom information hotspots to highlight every part of their tours and educate the user during the entire walkthrough experience. We also photographed the architectural photography and lifestyle photography for them to use for their websites, flyers, banners, and marketing material. Hopefully we’ve helped prospective see how incredible this University really is.
