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.

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.

Panorama Category: Holidazzle Parade

These are my 360 degree panoramas of the Minneapolis Holidazzle Parade. It would be a LOT easier to make these if the parade would stop occasionally - and especially if they'd leave the stupid street lights on!!

Holidazzle 2012 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!!"

Minneapolis Holidazzle Parade 2010 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!
