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.

Invasion of the Giant Ice Spiders 360 degree aerial panorama above an invasion of giant Ice Spiders on Lake Josephine in Roseville, Minnesota. These monsters must have hitched a ride on a meteor that crashed into the lake - they’re obviously not from earth.

Lake De Montreville Lake De Montreville 360 degree aerial panorama. For over 20 years every time Id drive to Stillwater Id see a street sign for DEMONTREVILLE TRAIL. I lived in New Orleans long enough to figure out the correct pronunciation, but in my head I always think DEMON TREE VILLE. Now Ive even got my grandkids wondering if the road leads to a small village with a Demon Tree in the middle of it. Or MANY Demon Trees! Or perhaps it has houses built with the wood from Demon Trees. And doesnt Demon Tree sound like the perfect name for a heavy metal band?!

(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.
