Biography: German photographer Chris Witzani has been involved with photography in one form or another for over 25 years. As a freelance photography engineer, Chris is an enthusiastic panoramic photographer and multimedia developer with many years of experience. First attempts of shooting black and white panoramic images with his Horizont camera during a trip around the world in 1992/93 sparked his interest in this wide format. In conjunction with multimedia applications, Chris began experimenting with cylindrical QuickTime VR technology and starting receiving orders for client projects in the mid-nineteen-nineties. In spring of 2005, his agency schnurstracks, organized the "rundum Panorama" exhibition. Chris is also co-founder of Panoramalampe company. They use 360° panoramas as cylindrical and svilleling lampshades for the panorama lamp. In 2009 Chris has written a german book about interactive panoramic photography: Interaktive Panoramafotografie - Edition ProfiFoto. Chris is also a trainer for interactive panoramic photography in his workshop at www.panorama-workshop.de.
