I'm Ed Fink, and these are my 360 degree panoramas. I was the first VR photographer in the world to do fullscreen 360° panoramas from a helicopter.
Now I'm a Google Street View Trusted Photographer in Minneapolis shooting Street View tours inside local businesses.
Take a look below at some of my Google tours, or go to my Google Street View page for more information and many samples.
I want to partner with you to offer Google Street View virtual tours to your clients! Google hosts the tour in Google Maps, but you're needed to also embed the tour in your client's web pages, blog, or Facebook.

My quadcopter is actually more exciting than shooting from a helicopter. In a helicopter I'm concentrating on my cameras (and worrying that if something goes wrong and I don't get the shot I'll have to pay for the helicopter myself!), but with the quadcopter I'm doing the flying. I wear goggles to see what the quadcopter sees, and it seems so real that I lean from side to side as I fly around obstacles, I duck when I fly under tree branches, I hold my breath when I fly over water. It's a blast!
I created this page to display some of my aerial photography and video. I'm still building my flying skills and my Adobe Premiere/After Effects skills, and trying to determine the best settings, so these videos vary in exposure, saturation, sharpness, stabilization, lens correction, etc.
