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.

I'm now a Google Trusted Photographer in Minneapolis, MN doing 360 degree virtual tours for Google Maps Business View.

Google Maps Business View is the indoor  version of Street View!


Google Trusted Photographer Logo

Google Maps Business View adds a 360° virtual tour and professional still photos to a Google Places or +Local listing.


Take a look below at some of my Google tours, or go to my Google Maps Business View page for more information and many samples.

I want to partner with you to offer 360° Google Maps Business View to your clients! Google hosts the virtual tour in Google Maps Street View, but you're needed to also embed the tour in your client's web pages, blog, or Facebook.

NEW!! I've recently started adding Google Maps Business View to a few of my 360° aerials.

360 degree aerial panorama of the Crazy Horse Memorial, the world’s largest sculpture, located in the Black Hills of South Dakota 17 miles southwest of Mount Rushmore.

When completed, the mountain carving of Crazy Horse astride his horse will be 563 feet (172 meters) high and 641 feet (214 meters) long. Crazy Horse's head is 87 feet 6 inches (27 meters) high. The horse's head, currently the focus of work on the mountain, is 219 feet (67 meters) high.

The work was begun in 1948 by sculptor Korczak Ziolkowski at the request of Native Americans. Korczak died in 1982. His wife, Ruth, and their family continue the project working with the Crazy Horse Memorial Foundation.

Korczak depicted Crazy Horse with his left hand thrown out pointing in answer to the derisive question asked by a white man, "Where are your lands now?" Crazy Horse replied, "My lands are where my dead lie buried."

The Memorial includes the Indian Museum of North America, the Native American Cultural Center, the sculptor’s studio, as well as a 40,000-square-foot Orientation Center and theaters. Many Native American artists and crafts people create their artwork and visit with guests at the Memorial during the summer season.
