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.

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.

These are 1436' transmission towers for Twin Cities television stations WCCO, KSTP, KARE, and many radio stations. The towers were replacements for a tower that collapsed in 1971, killing six workers on the tower and one on the ground. This is the highest altitude quadcopter aerial I've done so far. (It's also higher than all but one of my helicopter panoramas!) Normally 400' is the max alititude for a drone, but the FAA allows flights up to 400' HIGHER than nearby structures.

Two Harbors Iron Ore Docks 360 degree aerial panorama of the Iron Ore docks on Lake Superior's Agate Bay in Two Harbors, MN. The steel docks were originally built to load high grade iron ore from the Mesabi Iron Range onto large ships, but after World War II most of the high grade iron ore in the U.S. ran out and the industry moved to a lower grade ore, taconite, which you see here. The docks are over 1,300 feet long and seven stories tall. Today 12 million tons of taconite a year are shipped from Two Harbors to other locations on the Great Lakes eventually to be heated up to over 1000 degrees in blast furnaces, and converted into steel.
