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.

Lots Of Spencers 360 degree panorama of my very active grandson in his room. The quality of this panorama sucks and would have been trashed except for my cute grandson.
This was the first panorama where I shot a separate "nadir" (down) shot instead of leaving a hole. I knew I couldn't keep shooting winter panoramas and cloning snow over the bottom forever. :)
