Welcome to BigEyeInTheSky.com


I'm Ed Fink, and these are my 360 degree panoramas. I was the first photographer in the world to shoot 360 degree panoramas from a helicopter. Today I'm a FAA licensed drone pilot and shoot most of my aerials with a quadcopter.


In addition to shooting aerial panoramas, 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 100 MILLION VIEWS.

Ask me for more information or an estimate for your business!

Iowa State Capitol Sunset 360 degree aerial panorama at sunset over the historic Iowa State Capitol in Des Moines, IA. Building construction completed in 1886 but the conversion of gas lights to electric in 1904 caused a fire requiring major restoration. In the 1980ís the Capitol exterior had deteriorated, with sandstone chunks falling from the building, requiring a nine phase restoration project that completed in 1998.
