Here are few examples of recent panoramas that we have been doing for clients. We can shoot 360 degrees panoramas and supply them as flat photos or navigable films.

Still Images is delighted to announce that we will now be working with the new Nikon D800 camera body. This brand new 36.3 megapixel FX format camera is widely believed to be the world's best DSLR in terms of image quality and resolution.
The new camera is part of a major upgrade in our photography equipment and we will be using the camera in combination with a new range of lenses including the incredible Nikkor 24mm PC-E tilt and shift lens.
This new equipment will mean bigger, sharper and more detailed images, with a more nuanced range of colours.
Still Images is completely commited to providing the very best visuals for our clients and we are constantly upgrading our photographic, studio and digital processing equipment to ensure that we are able to continue to be the leaders in our market.
It is our ambition not only to offer the best photography services that we possibly can, but also to provide real value for money - we have not increased our prices since 2007!

The Prophoto Maroc website has been live now for just over a week and the response has been overwhelming!
You will have to forgive all our errors in French (we will get Lionel, our local translation expert, in to sort out our schoolboy language skills) but at last there is somewhere in Morocco for professional and amateur photographers!
It is still early days and we have only just begun to build up our range of products. If you are a photographer in Morocco you should sign up to our newsletter if you want to keep up to date as we expand and set in motion our programme of workshops.
Currently we are in discussion with Newsphoto, Morocco's only photography magazine, to set up a photography salon in Casablanca where you will be able to see products by Lastolite, Photoflex and Sunbounce for yourselves and try out our demonstration studios.
We will also be running print workshops to show how to get the best out of your inkjet printer and be showing off the fantastic quality of Hahnemühle papers and the Piezography black & white printing process.
The Projet Gypaète barbu is a project started by French biologist Fabrice Cuzin, Morocco's acknowledged wildlife expert. The heart of the project is in the Toubkal National Park and it's objective is to save Morocco's last remaining Bearded Vultures (Africa's larget birds of prey). The project is now run by the Mountian Propre Foundation with the support of the National Park authorities.
Every Sunday, whatever the weather conditions, local moutianeer and foundation employee, Rachid carries up between 50-60 goats' feet to the vulture feeding station in the heart of the Atlas at an altitude of about 3500m. The feeding is essential in the winter to keep the vultures in the park, otherwise they will forage outside the park's boundaries for carrion and fall victim to poisioning or electrocution from power lines.
This year Rachid has been joined by Harvey Packham, from Reading in the UK, the foundation's first international eco-volunteer. Harvey is on his gap year and is spending 3 months living with the Berbers in the High Atlas Mountians helping run the Foundation's many educational and environmental projects.

Here are a few shots from our studio portrait workshop at the Lycée Mohammed V in Safi. We had around 70 high school kids split up into two groups photographing each other in three studio set ups and experimenting with lighting, poses and camera angles.
