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.

Panorama Category: Mall of America

These are my 360 degree panoramas of Mall of America, including Camp Snoopy.

The Mall of America is the largest, fully enclosed retail and family entertainment complex in the U.S.

The Mall of America draws 42 million visitors each year; more than Disney World, Graceland and the Grand Canyon combined.

Seven Yankee Stadiums would fit inside Mall of America.

Mall of America’s 13,300 short tons of steel is nearly twice the amount in the Eiffel Tower.

Spending 10 minutes in every store would take a shopper more than 86 hours to complete their visit to Mall of America.

Mall of America is located on the former Metropolitan Sports Stadium which was home to the Minnesota Vikings and Twins. Home plate can be found in Knott’s Camp Snoopy.

Peanuts creator Charles Schultz was a native of St. Paul.

There are 30,000 live plants and 400 live trees planted in Knott’s Camp Snoopy.
