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. 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 40 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.

Google Maps is the most frequently used
app in the world, put it to work for you!

Google Street View CameraStreet View now allows Google certified photographers (like me!)  to create 360° virtual tours inside your business for Google Maps.

It’s simple, fast, and affordable.

Unlike other virtual tours, these INDOOR Street View tours are a complete series of interactive 360° panoramas that let people "walk around”  inside your business the same way they "drive around”  in outdoor Street View.

Advantages of a Google Street View virtual tour:
  -  Lets people SEE INSIDE your business on Google Maps
  -  High Quality 360° Panoramas
  -  Enhances your Google presence
  -  NO ONGOING FEES just a one-time charge for the 360° photography
  -  FAST! Your tour can be online within days
  -  Cross Platform - viewable on dekstops, laptops, phones, and tablets
  -  Powered by the latest Google technology!

No web site required! Since the entire tour is stored on Google's servers you don't have to worry about meetings with your IT department or web developers - within days your tour will be on Google Maps viewable by anyone anywhere.

Easily embed the tour in a web page, blog, or Facebook. Most companies already have a Google Map embedded somewhere on their site, embedding an indoor Street View tour is exactly the same. Here's two of my tours embedded below:

100,000 businesses signed up for Google tours in the first year. The program is so popular Google is continuously training new Trusted Photographers in order to keep up with the overwhelming demand.

Why choose me for your Google Street View Trusted Photographer? I'm not new to photography or panoramas. I've been a hard core professional panorama photographer for 15 years. I shoot panoramas hanging out of helicopters, leaning over bridges and skyscrapers, inside cars, vans, and buses, and from 12' poles. Creating 360° panoramas isn't a job to me - it's an obsession! Take a look around my website. I love what I do, I'm very good at it, and I'm proud of my work. My panoramas have been featured by ABC, CBS, NBC, MSNBC, the Washington Post, FARK, and locally by WCCO, KQRS, Pioneer Press, and many more.
