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.

360 degree panoramas at the Minnesota History Center in St. Paul, Minnesota


John Beargrease performance at the MN History Center 360 degree panorama of the John Beargrease performance/reenactment at the Minnesota History Center in St. Paul, Minnesota.

John Beargrease was a legendary Ojibwe mail carrier and fur trader most famous for battling Minnesota’s extreme winters to deliver mail along the North Shore of Lake Superior via dog sled. Using four dogs, he would travel an average of 30-40 miles a day.

Today his life is commemorated with the annual John Beargrease Sled Dog Marathon, which is the longest and most challenging sled dog event in the lower 48 states.

John Beargrease is one of the many characters from Minnesota’s past that are performed regularly by the Minnesota History Players at the History Center.

This was my submission for the 2009 Fall Equinox World Wide Panorama event "Performing Arts".

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.
