NORTH RIDGEVILLE, Ohio — When the pandemic shut down tourist attractions across the country last year, North Ridgeville photographer Mark Madere volunteered to create a 360-degree virtual tour of the Old Town Hall Museum for the North Ridgeville Historical Society.
“Although people were homebound,” he said, “I wanted them to be able to go online and virtually ‘walk though’ the museum to see all the unique, historic building has to offer.
“To view each room in any direction, including floor to ceiling, the online visitor simply moves their mouse across each picture to control what they wish to see.”
Madere not only keeps an eye on photographic possibilities, he also keeps an eye on the community and subjects that would be of broad interest, not only to local residents, but to others who might be tempted to visit due to the reputation he has crafted for his creative and innovative work in his own business, SpectraLight Photography and Design.
“I found that many businesses like nursing homes, hotels, tourist attractions, funeral homes and others were already benefiting from 21st century technology, so why not use it to help out the North Ridgeville Historical Society — a great organization that’s right in my own community,” Madere said.
He also created a companion video to the project, “with a brief history of the museum narrated by North Ridgeville voiceover artist Doug Mullins to add a little personality to the virtual tour.”
Madere said he feels good about using his abilities and talents for the community.
“It’s a great feeling to be able to use my technical and creative skills to create a unique experience that benefits the community. Many hours went into creating 360-degree images of the building and then assembling them into an online tour that lets visitors virtually move from one room to another.
“One has to experience it to really appreciate the intricacies of the project,” he said.
Along with creating virtual tours for businesses, Madere also specializes in restoration of faded and damaged photos, family and high school senior portraits created in his home-based studio (or any location of one’s choice), and portrait photography for businesspeople.
