The focus for the coming months is going to be 360 mapping for winter sports.

Chamonix Virtual Tour

Crisp and frosty mornings. Dark afternoons. Winter is starting to bite here in the UK.

Getting out onto the water, like our Trekkers have been doing all summer and autumn, is now only something for the bravest of souls.

Though there are plenty of opportunities for 360-degree photography over the colder months ahead.

Become a Trekker

I’m looking for Trekkers to help capture new 360-degree tours over the winter and spring.

The focus is on 360 maps for winter sports.

Ski resorts, mountain passes, glaciers…

With global warming affecting the weather more drastically than ever, I want to get people out capturing landscapes that are changing noticeably every year in an effort to document the changes.

Places where the snow line is retreating, exposed rock under what would once be solid ice, ski lines that will soon be a muddy thing of the past.

I can supply the waterproof 360-degree camera kit. You just need to supply the effort and mode of transport.

If you have a great place that encompasses the theme of winter sports that you want to capture a virtual tour of for others to enjoy, please apply to the Trek View camera loan program today – I have Trek Packs ready for Trekkers.

Pro tip: Here’s some advice when drafting your application.

Alternatively, you can build your own Trek Pack by following these instructions.

Update May 2020: Call for Trekkers: Summer / Autumn 2020.
