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.

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.

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 and reach Google's goal of one million participating businesses.

Why choose me for your Google Trusted Photographer? I'm not new to photography or panoramas. I've been a hard core full time professional panorama photographer for over 10 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, KTCZ, Pioneer Press, and many more. I will make YOU look good because that's how I make ME look good!
