Company History:

Take Me Virtual is a small business located in Baton Rouge, created by owner/photographer Mark Galasso in early 2014.

His interest in HDR photography & architecture was the impetus for learning how to shoot and create panoramic 3D/360˚virtual tours. Furthermore, the technology to host and produce quality online virtual tours has matured. We believe it is only a matter of time before all businesses (institutions/anything/anywhere) have vivid, state of the art virtual walk through tours to represent their businesses. And since no one uses phonebooks/yellow pages anymore, businesses need to remain competitive online by making sure their business is visually represented in the best way possible;  since users are accustomed to “seeing” things more than ever before.

Take Me Virtual is licensed for business in Baton Rouge. Our goal is to build long term relationships with businesses. You can expect top quality reproduction of all photographic images and we will back up our work with quality assurances, based on *reasonable expectations for each shoot and situation.

In most cases, Take Me Virtual will be acting as a Google authorized independent contractor to shoot images which will be hosted by Google and stitched together with their panoramic editors. Google requires all Trusted Photographer photo shoots to pass their own quality control standards before any virtual tours can be published online.

*All panoramic virtual tour shoots use only available lighting for the business, including natural occurring light from windows. If the lighting conditions are compromised (or poorly lit in certain areas of the business), in rare cases, this may result in less than ideal photographic conditions that could only be overcome with controlled lighting. We will always do our best to overcome these kinds of obstacles when present and will bring them to your attention.
