I'm Ed Fink, and these are my 360 degree panoramas. I was the first VR photographer in the world to do fullscreen 360 degree panoramas from a helicopter. Today I'm a FAA licensed drone pilot and shoot most of my aerials with a quadcopter.
I'm also a Google Street View Trusted Photographer in Minneapolis shooting Street View tours inside local businesses.
I publish thousands of 360 degree panoramas and virtual tours to Google Maps, where I currently have over 60 MILLION VIEWS.
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.

UPDATED!!! HUNDREDS of brand new or recently updated panoramas! It's so time consuming putting the little helicopters and links in the aerials I usually upload to Facebook and Google Maps right away, and only update the website when I have free time. It's been a year since the previous updates.
360 degree panorama during the 2012 Holidazzle Parade at Nicollet Ave. and 9th St. in downtown Minneapolis. It is difficult getting a good picture during the parade. They turn all the street lights off, so it’s really dark and hard to get a good crowd shot, plus the floats never stop. I’m starting to think the only way I can get a good shot of a float is to put a doll in a stroller, roll it out in the middle of the street, and scream "My baby! MY BABY!!"
Equipment: Nikon D700, Nikkor 10.5mm (shaved), Nodal Ninja Ultimate R1
360 degree panorama during the 2010 Holidazzle Parade at Nicollet Ave. and 8th St. in downtown Minneapolis. The crowd is usually as interesting as the floats, so I really wish they’d keave the street lights on for at least one parade. Better yet, for just one night leave all the downtown building lights on too, get a sponsor like Nikon and call it the "Nikon Light Up The Night Holidazzle Parade." I bet it would be the most popular night for Holidazzle!

Now I only shoot interactive 360 degree panoramas, but long ago I photographed rock concerts (and almost anything else!) for fun and profit. Here's a few of my concert photos and a story about shooting a 1981 Rolling Stones concert.
