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.

Rolling Stones at the Superdome

Now I only shoot interactive 360 degree panoramas, but long ago I photographed rock concerts (and almost anything else!) for fun and profit. Here's a few of my concert photos and a story about shooting a 1981 Rolling Stones concert.
