Axis Images’ work is about creating a sense of place and developing ways to visualize special places through photography, filmmaking, music and sound. As a creative studio specializing in immersive imaging, the LA based team has a wealth of talent and skill in 360 degree photography, spherical filmmaking, and architectural visualization. Collaborating with clients and partners to make great original content, the Axis Images team has an interest in a variety of subjects. We’ve created 360º photographic projects for Carnegie Hall, Dodger Stadium, Ellis Island, Manzanar and Arcosanti. We’ve documented UNESCO world heritage sites such as Acropolis of Athens, Chichen Itza in Mexico, Tower of London, and used the spherical format to make cinematic vignettes in vaudeville style music videos.
