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 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.

Veterans Day Ceremony at VA Home 360 degree panorama as the audience sings "God Bless America" during an emotional Veterans Day ceremony at the Minneapolis, Minnesota VA Home on Nov. 11, 2004, attended by Gov. Tim Pawlenty and U.S. Sens. Mark Dayton and Norm Coleman, along with Marland Ronning, MN American Legion Commander, and Maj. Gen. Doyle Larson, USAF (retired).

These Veterans Day (Nov. 11th) panoramas were shot for a collaborative VR project remembering the end of "The War To End All Wars."

In the U.S. there is no specific ceremony marking the end of World War One. Instead, Nov. 11 is recognized as Veterans Day, a time for honoring veterans of all wars. (Like my father, Lee S. Fink, who served in World War Two, Korea, and Vietnam.)
