Seriosity towards 360° VR panorama photography increases constantly as daily work does not any more disturb deepening studies in panorama photography nuances, software, equipment and other mystery details. Only my nearly insane affection in spending all spare time with my Beneteau Oceanis 40 steals hours from this new truly inspiring form of art - 360° VR panorama photography.
I shoot with Canon 5D Mark III, Canon EF 8-15mm f/4L Fisheye USM, Manfrotto MA 303SPH pano head, Manfrotto 055X PRO B Tripod and a Hähnel Combi TF Remote Trigger. I create with PtGUI and Pano2VR.

We are providing a cloud-based service called Panoplaza in which users can create panorama virtual shops.
We are also working with tourism sector in Nepal and Bhutan and that is why we have been uploading panorama photos taken there.
I am an amatuer photographer as it is a hobby and not a profession. My panorama goal is to shoot interesting landscapes without man made structures and in locations where the general public does not access. Occasionally, I will include a structure if it has significance with respect to the rest of the panorama.
Nachdem ich vor im Jahr 2003 mit meiner APS Kamera ein erstes Panorama fotografiert hatte, begann ich mich immer mehr mit der Panorama Fotografie zu Befassen. Ich arbeite mit PTAssembler von Max Lions.
Im Jahr 2009 habe ich mir zur Sony Kamera ein Samyang Fisheye gekauft, welches ich für fast alle Bilder hier verwendet habe.
Einige Bilder zeigen übrigens den eigenen Bauernhof ;-)
I love making photos and I saw Jeff's 18GPix panorama from Žižkov TV tower in Prague. I've decided to join 360 cities when I discovered how to make 360 panorama. It was in summer 2011. My first panoramas were not so good- bad stitching in ground and so on. But I discovered some tricks and it is great. But only limitation is my camera. I have got 6 years old Panasonic DMC FZ-7 with 36mm lens and I must take at least 80-100 photos to make 360° panorama. But this thing doesn't discourage me- I'm trying to improve myself.
Photographer Andrew Bodrov, a member of the International Virtual Reality Photography Association (IVRPA), has been professionally engaged in panoramic photography from the year 2000. He first took on us on a incredible tour of Mars with an interactive panorama of Curiosity rover's landing site. This 360VR panorama has received 1.5 million hits just in two weeks after publishing.
I started 360 degree panoramics in January 2009, just in time for a trip to Chile and Argentina. We visited mostly the southern parts of the countries including the lake districts and Patagonia.
In April 2009 I spent a week touring some amazing US National Parks including Bryce, Zion, Arches and Mesa Verde, lots of fantastic panorama opportunities!
My equipment includes a Canon 40D, Nodal Ninja 3 panorama head and PTGui software.

The posibility for Background, reflection, and lighting information, even texture are great; if you using MDR pano and HDRI pano. So i decided to get my first digital camera (a canon 500D). And i really start 3 month ago to do panorama, and even starting to think about photogrammetry with panorama. i hope you like what you see. Check as well my web siteon www.thierryhamel.com
Hi, my name is Matthew Wellard. I've been into photography for 20+ years now as a hobby. Really got back into with my purchase of a Nikon D70, the digital age making it so much easier...
Saw an Ipix panorama in New York as my first 360 VR. Since then I've purchased a Nikkor 10,5mm Fisheye and a Manfrotto 303SPH panorama head to create my own panoramas.
I've taken many sequences that I have yet to stich so more will be coming soon...

Seit 2005 erstelle ich fotorealistische Landschaften, sogenannte Szenerien, die in verschiedenen Modellflug-Simulatoren als Hintergrund eingesetzt werden. Dabei verschmilzt eine möglichst perfekte Landschafts- und Raumdarstellung mit der darunter liegenden 3-D-Konstruktion der Umgebung zu einer neuen virtuellen Realität, in der ein Modellflug-Pilot seine Fähigkeiten und Fertigkeiten verbessern kann. Für ein Panorama werden dazu bis zu 72 hoch aufgelöste Digitalfotos verwendet. Für Stadtansichten und Web-Anwendungen setze ich auch ein 8mm Fisheye ein, mit dem einige der hier gezeigten Panoramen entstanden sind.
Seit kurzem kann ich die 1-Klick-Panorama-Aufnahme der Panono-Wurfkamera nutzen.

Biografie: J.W.A.A. Wils, André In 1955 geboren te Valkenswaard – Noord Brabant - Nederland Interesse : Digitale Panorama Fotografie Fotograferen had al vroeg mijn interesse maar sinds de opkomst van de digitale fotografie is het een ware hobby geworden. Heb gefotografeerd met de Nikon 4500. Trok er vaak op uit om foto’s te maken en nieuwe uitdagingen aan te gaan. Welke instelling en hoe kan ik het mooier maken vanuit een andere positie om een goede foto te maken. Mijn interesse om panorama foto’s te maken werd groot en in 2005 heb ik vanuit Amerika mijn eerste Nikon FC-E8 Fisheye lens aangeschaft. Eind 2007 ben ik verhuist naar Tilburg en ben enorm geïnspireerd geraakt om de voor mij nieuwe omgeving op 360 graden foto’s vast te leggen. Begin 2009 ben ik overgestapt naar de Nikon D-80 en de Nikkor Fisheye lens 10,5 mm. Deze 360 graden panorama (die ik Bolpanorama’s noem) foto’s geven een zuivere benadering van de werkelijkheid. Steeds meer ontdekken en vanuit een ander gezichtspunt fotograferen zodat ik de bolpanorama zo over kan brengen zodat het voor een ander herkenbaar wordt zonder er ooit te zijn geweest. Dat is en blijft een uitdaging waar ik mijn tijd graag mee vertoef. Mag me nu rekenen tot een van de Nederlandse panorama fotografen voor de uit Praag afkomstige 360cities.net. 360cities,net is een snelgroeiende gemeenschap van panorama forografen, overal ter wereld, met als doel om heel de wereld in panorama’s weer te geven.

I have been clicking camera shutters since I was 6 years old. My photographic experience ranges from large format sheet film, color darkroom and dye transfer printing to the digital world of 3D anaglyphs, astrophotograhy, photomacrography and the spherical panorama. For me, photography is a passion and a hobby.
I come from a 3D computer graphics background. One quiet and clear day, while surfing the net, I got hooked with Prof. Dersch's panorama-tools fisheye magic. That happened more than ten years ago, and since then I have been fishing 360º panoramas.

We would like to create the best virtual Vietnam in the world where you can find and see 360° panorama photos in virtual tours from all of important place, landmark, museum, heritage, building, hotel, restaurant, bar, shop, showroom, company, factory, mall, government office, park, water park, theme park, entertainment place .... etc.
Based in Belgium, Herman began taking photos about 15 years ago, first as a hobby developing into a real passion. He studied photography at the local art school. Being a keen mountaineer gave him ample opportunity for fantastic landscape and nature photos. However, he has also built up experience with studio and portrait work.
His pictures have been published in magazines like National Geographic as well as various newspapers. Some of his work can be found on his website, www.hermandesmet.be and also on his personal blog.
Herman has lately specialized in architecture, real-estate and panorama photography, expanding into 360° panoramas and virtual tours for internet use. He feels that nowadays everybody can make digital photos, but doing a perfect 360°-180°VR panorama is a skill on its own requiring special equipment and lots of practice, patience and knowledge of photography to get the best results. But when you succeed in making a gorgeous digital 360 panorama, it amazes people like they were amazed in the pre-internet era when they saw a huge print of a fantastic picture.
And, for Herman, amazing people is what his photography is all about.
Self made photographer, specialized in panoramics. Previously a multimedia developer creating business presentations and cd-rom for museums. The early panoramas were made with compact camera's, these delivered nice cilindrical images but that wasn't enough so I invested time and money to go pro in the panorama field. C360.NL is the result.
Taking pictures motivates me since about 25 years. Starting in the analog time with a b/w and color lab at home I now use a Canon 300D and 40D. Technologies learned during the analog time could be imrpooved and new digital technolgies enables to expanded the horizon of photography. Cubic panoramas are a good example for such a new technology that requires digital processing.
For panorama pictures I use a Canon 40D body with a Peleng 8mm f/3.5 lens and a Manfrotto 303plus combined with Novoflex panorama=Q head. For stitching I use PTGuiPro.
If you would like to see some other pictues taken by me, I would like you to invite to visit my gallery: http://www.jenshaun.de
I enjoy photographing outdoor settings.
The weather in this part of the world gives me a lot of opportunity to take cameras and the light quality is usually excellent.
When I don't have my SLR handy I shoot single row panoramas with my iPhone and it gives reasonable results too.
My 360 panorama software of choice is Hugin.
Living from aerial filming and aerial photography since 5 years now. Since then I allways was "playing" with aerial panoramas but never got the complete satisfaction. Finding new techniques and workflows a few month ago, I'm getting the fealing to come closer and closer to how a aerial panorama should look like...:-)

Well I'am living in The Netherlands and for some years busy with photography, and have been always interested in making panorama photo's. Most of the times these photos where images of 4-5 photo's stitched together. From here on I tried to make 360 pano's an noticed that it was very difficult to make these without a tripod. So I started making these photo's on the tripod but that still was not good enough. So I started to look what was needed to make perfect 360 panorama photo's. And on the internet I saw some Pano Heads, which I made myself from metal. And see here the result.
So I think it's a great way to freese an location with this photo techniek and than share it with the world.
Thanks for looking at my 360 images and greetings, Pierre.

My panoramas usally consit of four photos shot with the fisheye lens or up to 30 equirectlinear with up to 20 mm focal length for a better quality.
The first time I saw a virtual panorama in 2011, and since then the passion for it does not leave me. I really think this is a great way to explore the world and show it to others. I was born and raised in Ventspils city, but now I live in Riga,Latvia. I will introduce you with my country through the virtual panoramas.www.iriga.eu
I'm a hobby photographer who heard his jaw drop to the floor when he saw his first interactive panorama (Jay Leno's studio). I've been shooting panoramas myself since 2001. In 2006 and 2007 I contributed to the board of the PanoTools and PanoToolsNG mailinglists, but since life has more than one priority, I had to step back. Nowadays I predominantly shoot panoramas during holidays and publish them on my web site.
I'm an engineer by training and an artist by inclination. I've been doing photography since the early 1970's and created my first panorama in 2003. I'm now located in Walpole, New Hampshire and make trips around the region to photograph scenic spots that I love. I like the 360 Cities platform and exploring the world with their 360 degree panoramas. For more of my work go to www.brianshriverphotography.com

I am a native German and have lived nearly 30 years in Asia, mostly in Indonesia. In the 80’s I worked as a producer, rostrum camera operator and photographer for a well known Indonesian MultiMedia company! I created innovative, unseen large screen multi-image presentations of up to 15 projectors for clients like Unilever, Honda, Pertamina, Modern Group and Indonesian Government Departments. Later, as a freelance photographer, I worked for Jakarta’s international agencies in the field of corporate, advertising and hotel photography. Reportage assignments for magazines like "Geo France", "Der Spiegel", "Die Zeit", APA Travel Guide rounded up the fascinating job as a photographer.
1997, I started to experiment with Panorama Photography and developed the "roundshot360" photography combined with virtual tours in an outstanding quality for full frame, Internet and print media. Prints of Panorama shots for exhibitions or posters can be enlarged up to 5m. Beside this love for roundshot360 images, I never stopped to work as a "conventional" photographer!

Acknowledged as one of the "Masters of Contemporary Panoramic Photography" by IVRPA 2011
It all started in the summer of 1998, I discovered a few rotating images on a Japanese engineering demonstration disc. With a simple flick of the 'wand', you get to explore the whole construction site. I was absolutely fascinated by the magic of virtual reality and I had an epiphany that this is exactly what I want to do from that moment on--I want to travel all around China to capture her beauty, and let the world admire her culture, from an unbiased, comprehensive perspective.
This motivated me to establish the ChinaVR website with my partners and set up a panoramic archive for all Chinese World Heritages and tour resorts. Therefore, I was regarded as China's first VR panoramic photographer. I dedicated myself to the development and application of Panoramic photography and computer processing technique, among them, Floating panorama and Motion panorama are well received by my peers. Thanks to the support of IVRPA and WWP, ChinaVR became the top Panoramic website in China and gained reputation worldwide.
Been invited to the UN's "2006 World Heritage Web Conference" to give a speech titled "The application of vr panoramic photography in the reservation of World Heritage" at Tsinghua University in Beijing.

Exclusive interview with "Age of the Internet" of China's biggest television network CCTV in 2000.
My 360 panorama "The Song of the Vagabonds" win the BESTS of 2010 IPA.
Since hundreds of thousands of Chinese people were drawn to panorama, I established a pano forum for the fans and offer them a platform to exhibit their works and share their excitement. I always encourage these friends to participate in WWP events despite the language barrier. My next step is to setup a panoramic gallery, organise a Chinese panoramic association and publish a professional magazine in China, to help Chinese pano fans to communicate with international peers.
For my personal plan, I am preparing to build some "pano-rooms", in which huge gigapixel panoramic photographs were printed on Advanced Semi-gloss Photo Paper and mounted on 4 walls, sometimes with "ceiling" and "floor". Each wall measured at least 3.5 x 3.5 meters, people stand in the center of the "room", to feel the atmosphere of reality and to watch the very fine details of the panorama even with a magnifier.

Vielen Dank für das Besuchen von meinem 360-Profil.
Fotografie ist ein Hobby von mir und dazu gehört neuerdings auch das "Bauen" von 360x180 Panoramen.
Mir geht es in erster Linie um das Panorama an sich und weniger um die Location. Deshalb fotografiere ich auch gerne an "normalen" Orten.
Wenn Ihnen ein solcher Ort in meinem Umkreis in den Sinn kommt, schicken Sie mir gerne eine Nachricht!

Nacido en Jimbe, Perú, mis principales fotos versan acerca de los paisajes de mi tierra y aledaños, especialmente los de la Cordillera Negra. En panoramio y en mi facebook he colgado más de 1400 fotos. Suelo caminar hasta los oteros más elevados, sin reparos por el clima, a fin de obtener un panorama insólito y espectacular. Aunque tarde 3 días en llegar, he llegado a la conclusión de que las imágenes lo valen.
I was born 63 years ago in Bratislava, the capital of Slovakia (then one of the two parts of Czechoslovakia). But more than 50 years I live in Prague, the capital of the Czech Republic (then the other part of Czechoslovakia). I took my 360° pictures with an iPhone 4S (later with an iPone 5)and 360 Panorama application. Welcome to my photographs and enjoy them. :-)
Information about myself (only in Czech)
I'm pretty new to photography,
got interested in panorama photography after seeing some aerial panoramas shoot from rc helis.
and since one of my main hobbies is RC cars/planes/helis, i just had to try to do some panoramas. so then i bought me a nikon d90 with nikkor 10.5mm manfrotto tripod and a nodal ninja panohead..
i'm currently working on building my rc heli for aerial photography
not sure when it will be done, but hopefully soon :D
Als engagierter Amateur wollte ich wissen, was man(n) mit einer Digitalen Kamera alles anstellen kann. Dabei bin ich unter anderem auf die Panoramafotografie gestoßen.
Dieses Gebiet hat mich so fasziniert, daß ich bei jeder sich bietenden Gelegenheit versuche, ein Panorama zu fotografieren. Nicht immer gelingt es, aber in den letzten Jahren sind einige Panoramen entstanden, für die ich eine geeignete Möglichkeit gesucht habe, diese zu präsentieren.
Mangels einer eigenen Webseite werde ich hier auf www.360cities.net meine besten Panoramas veröffentlichen.
Robert first saw spherical panoramas (or photo bubbles as they were called then in 1999) and wondered how they were created. After looking into the subject and finding Prof. Helmute Derschs early versions on Panotool he decided to give it a go.
His first spherical panorama was taken on 35mm film using a standard tripod head. The photos were processed, scanned and then stitched (there were no GUI frontend's it was text files). The alignment of the photos wasn't perfect, but it proved it could be done.
Over the years he has continually improved his camera setup and post processing process. On the camera side he went from a Nikon Coolpix 990 and FC-E8 fisheye lens through to currently a Nikon D300 and 10.5mm fisheye lens. While post processing he now used Adobe Lightroom 3 and PTGui.
He now takes his panoramic camera setup wherever he goes and enjoys shooting everything from local views to holiday destinations. He also has contributed to the World Wide Panorama project since the first event in March 2004.
I am a hobbyist photographer from Estonia, who got exited about panoramic photography the moment I saw the panorama picture mode on the first digital compact camera I had access to. Those old cylindrical panos with lots of stitching errors seem somewhat less than spectacular now, but they sure are nostalgic :)
Nowadays I carry my fisheye with me all the time, and a small selection of what I shoot ends up here.
Some of my non-panoramic pictures can be seen here
Photograph more than fifty years. I have no clear-cut area, I love the landscape and people in action. Lately I'm trying skyline 360th It's addictive and fun, you might also be helpful ... I enjoy it! Jivodicka (at) gmail.com
Fotografuji více jak padesát let. Nemám vyhraněnou oblast, mám rád krajinu i lidi v akci. V poslední době zkouším panorama 360. Je to návykové a zábavné, možná také užitečné… užívám si to! Jivodicka(at)gmail.com. Pro sestavení panoramatu používám Hugin (+ velkou trpělivost).
For more than 25 years I have been photographing. Covering important events like weddings and baptisms led to child photography and portrait photography.
Travelling in places like the Mediterranean region, China, Thailand, Borneo, Polynesia, Australia, Galapagos and South America has provided golden opportunities to capture motives within the categories of wildlife and nature which are additional two important elements in my work. Just as landscape, cityscape, and architecture are passions of mine; where also panorama and 360° images come into play.

AirPano is a not-for-profit project focused on high-resolution spherical panorama shots from a bird’s eye view. Being the largest resource for 360° aerial panoramas in the world – by geographical coverage, number of aerial photographs, and artistic and technical quality of the images, AirPano has already photographed over two hundred most interesting locations on our planet, including North Pole, Antarctica, Mariana Trench, and even the Earth's view from the stratosphere. There are nearly two thousand 360° panoramas on our website at the moment.
Photographe amateur depuis 50 ans: mon premier appareil photo fut un 24x36 SLR Exakta fabriqué à l'époque en Allemagne de l'Est. Appareil très complet mais peu ergonomique, qui m'a surtout permis de découvrir une foule d'effet spéciaux . En 1999, j'ai commencé avec mon premier panorama, a très laborieusement sticher les images puis visualiser. Ma réference de qualité furent rapidement les panoramas de Ecliptique que je n'arrivais pas à atteindre et ce n'est que récemment,au début 2009 que j'ai repris le goût pour les panoramas grâce à Autopanopro .
Nun etwas zu mir: ich bin gelernter Computertechniker und beschäftige mich seit 2006 mit Panoramafotografien, morphenden Bildern und anderen virtuellen interaktiven Darstellungsformen unserer Welt und ihrer Geschichte.
Als Broadcast-Technician bin ich des öfteren für TUI auf Kreuzfahrtschiffen unterwegs.
Zwischen den Schiffsverträgen arbeite ich als Fotograf deutschland- und weltweit, kurzfristig jedoch am liebsten zwischen Zittau und Berlin, wo man mich gerne auch für Fotoshootings und Bilddokumentationen buchen kann.
Und nun viel Spaß beim Umsehen!

I am an amateur photographer - and would like it to remain so. But hopefully a decent panorama photographer. My interest in photography dates back to the days of the american lunar missions. The moon landing in 1969 was the real reason for buying my first semi-professional camera, a Nikkormat, to the vast sum of 1300 danish kroner (appr. 220 $) at that time. Being in high school, a Hasselblad, similar to the one used on the lunar expeditions, was way outside my economic means (perhaps one day? some dreams probably should remain dreams).

Die Panorama Fotograpie begeisterte mich schon Jahrzehnte.
Von Anfangs aneinander gereiten Bildern bis zum perfekten Kugelpanorama war für mich ein weiter Weg. Seit 2009 betreibe ich die Panorama Fotograpie nun ernsthafter.
Meine Kamara "Drehaparate" und später mein Nodalpunktadapter (Alu) habe ich auf meiner Heimischen Fräse selbst gefertigt.
Anfangs verwendete ich noch Kompaktkameras verschiedenster Hersteller, später rüstete ich auf Spiegelreflex (Nikon) um.
Climbing, traveling, photography and science are the important activities in my life. These activities are connected with each other and they are helping me differently on my way of life. I do climbing since 1998. The first place it brought me where (after almost whole Europe) was Peru (2003). Afterwards I´ve visited Russia (Kaukaz), Canada, Madagascar and U.S. My first digital camera was OlySP500 (in 2006), now I´m using Nikon D200. Since the very first moments I was captured and fascinated by the world of panorama pictures. My aim is to capture and document places I´ve visited as realisticly as possible and here you can see some of my results.
I'm an architect, engineer, and I love travel and photography.
I got obsessed with spherical panoramas when I first discovered them in 2001, intrigued by the ability to capture the entire spherical scene in a single image and to share and explore these immersive worlds. I followed developments in this field from the old QTVR panoramas to when panoramas started appearing in the more flexible Flash format, to when it went mainstream through various smartphone apps and 360 cameras.
In 2010, I made my first spherical panorama using the 18-55mm kit lens that came with my DSLR, a tripod, and a Nodal Ninja MKII panohead. Many of my panoramas have been made using this setup and HDR bracketting.
Best panoramic photographer - PANOBOOK 2012
I'm a professional photographer with over 30 years experience in various fields of photography including commercial and artistic. I specialize in creating high quality giga pixel panoramic photographs as well as internet virtual tours. Among my clients are many Polish and European cathedrals, churches, hotels, schools and national parks. Most notably is St. Mary's Basilica in Kracow, Poland. The gigapixel panoramic image created for the basilica won first prize in the international professional photographic panorama competition Kolor Panobook2012. Since then, I was proudly honored as The Best Panoramic Photographer of 2012.

I'm photographing since 1997. In the beginning I only worked with black and white material which I developed in my own darkroom. Currently I'm working in colour and black and white with a fully digital workflow. The results of this workflow are printed on Hahnemühle papers with pigmented inks.
Back in 2004 I started to take panoramic pictures. Initially the results were only parts of spherical images. Since 2006 I take full spherical images like the ones on this site. In 2008 I started to work on reprojections of this artwork to be able to print spheric panoramic images on flat surfaces.

I also have a site, which presents my portfolio of conventional images:
After relocating to North Wales I realised that I moved to a very beautiful place on earth; there are mile long beaches and 1000m high mountains all in reach of 20 miles.
Inspired by the landscape, I decided to get back into an old hobby of mine - back from the old SLR and film days - photography. This coupled with good software and the internet can create some really great impressions from all around the world.
So I guess i will take my role in this and try to present the North Wales area in some 360 panoramas. This will definitely get me out, whatever the weather.
There are more panoramas I made on panorama-photo.net. Most comments there are in German but the panoramas are in the universal language
I'm Julien, 32, living near Paris. I have been into panoramic photography for 8+ years now. I think that 360° panoramas are really taking photography to the next level.
From my travels, I brought back many panoramas that I now regularly publish on this site and my blog.
Indeed, I am also the guy behind the Exploration Junkie panorama travel blog - with, you guessed it, spherical and cylindrical panoramas from my explorations, photo galleries and more!
I do my best to develop my website and this profile on 360Cities, don't hesitate to say hi if you like my panos!
Thanks for visiting my page.
My interest in photography started in elementary school when I was about 12 years old.That is a long time ago with film and mostly black and whites.
From 1995 to 2005 I used both film and digital cameras. Today I never use film anymore, even if I have a collection of still working film cameras. The oldest is from 1916 and was my grandgrandfathers. The newest is my Minolta Dynax 7000i from 1990.
The way photography is today is really fantastic. Just say Photoshop, Lightroom, HDR, stacking, tilt shift, full frame sensors, panorama technique and so on. I do not miss all chemicals and all waiting to see how your pictures turned out.
Today I use a Nikon and an Iphone for my photografy experiences.
Virtual tour of Ukraine with a team of studio GetPano!
Eugene Khlebnikov - one of the best photographers in Ukraine, professionally and actively engaged in the panoramic shooting for the past 2 years.
Galina Kolesnik - a practicing journalist. All information provided by panoramas thoroughly tested and studied for what would everyone could not only visually see the place, but interesting and refresh the data.
Traveling through the territory of Ukraine, we shoot a panorama attractions of cities, landscapes, stories and trash. Black and Azov sea, the mountains, the resort towns. Our portfolio of more than 500 panoramas hotels, restaurants, galleries, shops and a variety of other commercial facilities.
Travel with us - we confirm the effect of the presence!
I started with panorama photography at the beginning of 2013. As an Industrial Designer I'm interested in the creative and the technical background of it. It has always been disapointing for me when I shot a fantastic view with standard camera but I wasn't able to show the view as wide as my eyes did see it. For me the most important advantage of panorama photography is that you can show views wider and closer to how we see it with our eyes.
I am a self taught amateur exploring 360 3D photography with a single camera. My basic setup includes one Sony a6000, a Rokinon 7.5mm shaved fisheye, a nodal ninja 3 and Manfrotto tripod. This rig allows for a minimum of 8 images (4 left, 4 right) which are stitched in ptgui and stacked top and bottom in Photoshop.
The basic challenge is time. It takes more than a minute to complete an 8 image stereo set with this rig. Even longer if attempting HDR. It is incredible how much will change in a scene in less than a minute. Tiny movements which go unnoticed in a 2D panorama will register in 3D as confusing depth cues which break the stereo illusion.
Time and stitching are the underlying issues in single camera stereo panoramas.
My focus is on 360 degree panoramic images in virtual tours for commercial real estate properties to use in marketing.
My goal is to create 360 degree panoramic online tours viewing experiences where the viewer receives an experience that is as close as possible to the actual experience of being at the place where the panorama tour was shot using high quality images. This marketing feature will significantly reduce the time it takes for prospects to tour properties and allow landlords and listing agents to close transactions faster by having prospects ready to purchase before physically visiting a property.
I am also a Google Trusted Photographer allowing me to create virtual tours on Google maps to promote businesses. Feel free to contact me at 425-391-8900 with any questions.
Douglas Cape, Director of Photography at Z360 which makes interactive photography for websites. Z360 was featured on MacWorld CD in 1998, in Apple VR Showcase 1999, made an interactive panorama drama in 2001, featured on Panoramas Worldwide 3 times in 2003 and made panoramas for Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy Movie in 2004. Since then z360.com was "cool site of the day" receiving over 5 millions hits, has filmed HD panoramic videos and made panoramic tours for Tate Modern and the BBC among many others. Made world's first iPad friendly panorama site in 2010.
I'm a software developer by trade, but I like to play around with GIMP (a Photoshop-clone) and, since I discovered Hugin (the panorama stitcher), I got my camera back from its case and started using it again :-)
Moreover, I can also apply my other hobby to panorama creation; for instance I made my own equirectangular editor when I didn't find anything that worked well enough.
I'm by no means a professional photographer, but my father used to earn some money that way when I was younger and I still have this nostalgic feeling about cameras and such.
I took my first spherical panorama in 2007 but didn't get fully into the hobby until a few years later. Despite doing this for awhile, I'm still learning new techniques as I go. I take photos of anything & everything in the USA & Canada, particularly of offbeat places only the locals would know about (or maybe not know about); my primary themes include:
Mountain summits (including gigapixels)
Lakes/waterfalls/bodies of water
Places of mystery/tragedy/crime
Abandoned ruins/places in decay
Fire lookout towers
Cemeteries/specific graves/veteran memorials
Floral & botany
Trashed & destroyed vehicles
Anything of sentimental value
Photographing has always been my pictoral diary as one never knows when something is going to change. Many of my adventures have been of solo exploration & I hope for many more.
Hi, One day I discovered 360Cities in the Gallery layer of Google Earth. What was this? Wow, this is cool. I wanted to learn how to make them myself and so began the exciting journey of learning all about shooting panoramas, stitching, and finding out how to get them on Google Earth.
Living at the eastern edge of the Great Basin in Utah I noticed that there were not many panoramas out west of I-15 in Utah all the way over to Reno Nevada. A few shots were in the mountains in Nevada by a fellow in Salt Lake City but other than that it was empty territory with all kinds of interesting places to take photos. This was a good excuse to start exploring these areas to take panoramas that could be shared with everyone on Google Earth.
Other areas of the world are well represented in 360Cities and as a way to show thanks to the other 360Cities photographers that have taken time to shoot their parts of the world, I decided that I would try to do my part by taking photos in the areas in the western United States that don't as of yet have any panoramic photos.
Panoramio photos (photos in the default layer in Google Earth) are interesting but don't give the feeling of being at that location like a well shot 360 panorama does. I use Panoramio as a tool to locate interesting areas for 360 panorama shots. A greater concentration of photos = an interesting area to be considered for a 360.
Its fun to study the maps and Google Earth, find some areas to shoot, learn the history about the area, take the photos, stitch and try to perfect the image, and then share the image on 360 Cities and Google Earth.
I hope you enjoy the photos, and if you have any comments feel free to contact me at:

Traveling has always been a passion since young age & I have traveled extensively within India no wonder I choose photography as a profession at young age of 15. With the advent of digital technology I migrated completely to digital imaging because of panoramas. I did my 1st panorama in Feb 1997 using a borrowed sony cybershot digital camera, in1998 I was all in love with this form of wide panoramic art & since 1997 have done 1000s of partial 180° & full 360° spherical panoramas for tourism, hotels & industrial locations.
Panoramic images have a magic which is quite enchanting & that's the magic which pulls me into doing these panoramas.
I am a professional photographer shooting Interiors, Architecture & Industrial panoramic digital images past 22+ years. I feel extremely lucky that I was able to convert my 2 hobbies traveling & photography into my profession, for that reason I enjoy my work. I wish to bring the beauty of locations I visit with my panoramas.

I got my first camera to my children's first communion. If I remember correctly, it was a simple roll film camera by Kodak with a 6 * 6 roll. Later, i am acquired the first SLR camera as a family camera. In the youth, we had been much experimenting with aperture, Exposure time and flash. Steps in the black and withe - laboratory were also present. But with the chemistry I did not have it in such a way.
Now, professional life began. In the past 25 years I've scurrying me in the IT - industry and left little time for photography.
When the first affordable and useful digital cameras came on the market, around the turn of the millennium, I jumped on. I was fascinated by the opportunity to get my photographed pictures going directly into the computer. My first digital was the compact camera Canon G2. Also this camera had in 2002 a panorama function, which has received the panoramic virus in me.

Lately I'm teaching physics and technology in Waldorf schools, but I have been a freelance structural engineer, graphic designer and photographer. I always investigated electronics, robotics and science in general. I enjoy hacking and disassembling as much as designing... I love cycling, running, hikink, traveling in any way and taking spherical and gigapixel panoramas of cityscapes and landscapes.
I love immersive photography because I think it's the best way to feel emotions as you're there, and since 360° photography needs advanced and elaborate tecniques and a great practice to find the optimal point of view. I hope you could find your target in my works.

My name is Brian Conroy. I live in Tigard, a suburb of Portland Oregon.
When I was a teenager I used to splice my photos together and make ultrawide panoramas. Once I discovered 360 panoramas in 2006 I was so excited I spent $2,000 on all the equipment I needed on line the next day and I never looked back. I love taking these photos. They do so much more to capture the spirit and time of place. I am very lucky to have been raised in one of the most beautiful states in the country. My dad grew up in very rural central Oregon. Fortunately he took me out there to fish whenever he could. I hope you enjoy these Panoramas as much as I do. I wish I could add sound to them to really put you there. Don't miss my panoramas on the top of the Mt. St. Helens volcano in Washington State and Zion National Park in Utah and Jefferson Park, Oregon. For a fun one see my family panorama in Tigard, Oregon.
Thanks for stopping by, Brian Conroy

Unsure how your project can be photographed? How to produce the highest quality or a desire to innovate? Your challenge is my passion!
During the years I had the joy of "hanging" my photographic equipment outside of skyscrapers, rigging cameras inside machines, building creative concepts and flying to the ends of earth for the most thrilling projects.
In my work it's important for me maintain the highest quality of work and product. I believe that a properly executed work, with no compromises, will stay relevant longer and attract more clients. Especially today when we are overwhelmed by so many images all the time. Here's my value, that's my clients' differentiation.
I'm always on the look for my next challenge, be it a large scale project or something small that just needs to be done properly.

Photography has been one of my favorite hobbies most of my life, but when I discovered 360 panoramas back in 2006, it became an inspiration. I struggled with different lenses, cameras rotators and software for a while before finding a few people in the 360 Cities that have helped me find a new level of skill. Now I take my panorama setup everywhere.
I've been a photographer for almost 10 years however I am very new to panorama photography. After recently being exposed to the Oculus Rift and viewing 360 Photos, I was hooked! I really look forward to taking these photos during my travels and share them with you. I hope you enjoy! If you would like to contact me, my email is MeekoFoy23@hotmail.com.
Hi, I'm Ewing Kang . I've just graduate from Yi-Lan Junior High and studing Aeronatics and Astronatics in NCKU.
I've noticed and started to learn about shooting panorama image when I was second year in high school. After reading numerous page ( of course in English) , I'm now have some Knowledge about it. The special panoramio shooting rest was made by myself. It is welcome to contect me if you have any question. I will help you with all my effort.
I'm a 2D and 3D graphic designer freelancer from Italy. I stepped into panoramic photography on 2005. My first equipment was a Kaidan QuickPan IV rotator with a Standard Bracket for cylindrical shots. Later on I switched to Manfrotto 303SPH rotator for spherical panorama. Manfrotto 303SPH solution is very precise but too much heavy for travelling, so I decided to get a Fanotec NN3 in 2007, much better lighter and esier solution to carry on!
In the past I used a Nikon D-70 or a Nikon D-300, most of the times with the lightweight Fanotec NN3, a couple of lenses: Tamron 10/24 and a Nikkor 18/70 and a Manfrotto Digi 725B as tripod. Recently I got one Panasonic GH2 - 16Mpx (micro 4/3) with a 14-140 mm zoom.
I take panos expecially for sampling landscapes for HDR/IBL application in 3D sofwares or simply to have background plates for 3d architectural rendering.
In the last 10 years I've been in India, Sardinia (Italy), Cornwall (UK), Danmark, Norway, Mongolia, Indonesia, Madagascar and Japan.
Thank you for reading and stopping by!
Mein Name ist Christopher Rau, komme aus dem schönen Fichtelgebirge, bin 16 Jahre alt und recht neu in der Panorama Szene.
Fototechnisch spezialisiere ich mich vor allem auf die Panoramafotografie, welche ich mir größtenteils selbst beigebracht habe bzw. beibringe, fotografiere jedoch auch alle andere Arten von Motiven auf alle Arten.
Diese und viele weite Fotografien finden Sie entweder auf http://www.panoramio.com/user/5564700
oder in meiner Privaten Sammlung.
I have been into photography since a young age, and have been taking panoramas since the age of 12. Recently, I have started to take spherical panoramas, beginning with an app on my phone (Google camera), and now with DSLR-based spherical panorama photography.
I find spherical panoramas much more flexible and interesting than regular panoramas, because you can capture everything around you, instead of a certain section.
”How did you get into that?' That's the question I get from people viewing my website or one of my prints. If it's a 'little planet view' they are often tipping their head or in some cases shaking it. I guess you could say there are two elements that draw me to this kind of photography. One would be getting high and the other would be looking around with a wide angle view.
I'm not sure where the getting high thing started. Perhaps it was my dad putting me on a booster seat in his Piper Comanche and letting me do the elevator and ailerons while he did the rudder. I couldn't reach. Perhaps it’s a 60s thing. I won't go into that too much. It's a blur anyway. Getting up high has not always worked out for me. From falling out of the top bunk in Indian Guides to tumbling backwards out of a willow tree from 40' at the age of 10 to a botched hang gliding launch at the age of 38, I have certainly taken my lumps. I suspect more than a few people think these sudden jolts to my brain matter account for my fixation on the 'little planet views'. In spite of all this I must say I have enjoyed the sensation and the view some altitude provides, from late afternoon flights with an Eagle just off my glider's wingtip, to sunsets perched in a cave on the side of a cliff. I suppose I'm getting stodgy because I get my views from a remote control camera mount on a tethered blimp or a 45' pole with a robot named Ansel on top but somehow I still manage to get my fix.
The wide angle view thing I think stems from my 'day job' doing computer aided design. I'm always rotating 3D models and zooming in and out so when I saw my first interactive panorama on the web I was hooked quickly. I also think It just goes with getting high. You climb the cliff to get the wide angle view. I've heard a spherical panorama described as 'all that can be seen from a point'. I like to think of 'little planet views' and
'tunnel views' as all that can be seen from a point seen all at once. I hope you all 'enjoy the view.'

I'm retired now and have some "inconveniences" with my health, so fast and flashy photographing is a little bit difficult, but I discovered shooting 360x180° panoramas is my cup of tea and is something I can handle with lightweight and small photo gear when I go "hunting panoramas" with my mobility scooter in my region called "Het Gooi" en Vechtstreek. It's centrally located between Amsterdam, Utrecht and Amersfoort and avaried, green part of the Netherlands. You find heath, forests, lakes, rivers, polders, old towns and villages, modern architecture and it's known as the home for the rich and famous (unfortunately not me) Hope you appriciate my panos of this region.
My Pano Gear:
# Samyang 8mm F3.5 Fisheye NX-mount
# Samsung NX100 APS-C sensor 14.6 MP
# Triopo Magnesium-Aluminium alloy Tripod model MX-1327
# Falcon Eyes Light Stand L3900GA/B for elevated panos for camera (incl. pano head) on 4,2m/14ft (despite the moderate height it gives a nice natural spatial effect)
# FLM LB60 levelling base
# Sunwayfoto DDP-64S click-stop rotator
# Pano-MAXX spherical panorama head
# Pixel RW-221 E3 wireless remote control
# Kettlebell 4kg as small counterweight
# Samsung RAW Converter - convert RAW images to Tiffs upto ±3EV
# PhotoMatix Essentials - for Exposure Fusion and contrast control
# PTGui (standard edition) - for stitching panoramas
# pano2vr - for easy editing in flat cube faces and reconvert back to equirectangular projection
# PaintShop Pro X4 - for general editing
A typical panorama shoot for the Samyang (180° FOV) consists of 6 horizon level images in portrait mode (60° sectors give convenient overlap zones). Camera a little pointed to the ground (-10°~-12°) to make a small nadir footprint (easy to edit) and 1 or 2 Zenith images tilted up to +60° above the anchor image and optional the second one in opposite direction to generate a lot of control points for stitching. In case of situations with moving objects (pedestrians, cyclists, cars, some times clouds, etc) I shoot only 4 images on horizon level and 1 zenith. Shooting 90° sectors only with the click-stop rotator for precision due to very narrow overlap zones. My distance setting for the Samyang Fisheye is 3m and aperture mostly set to F8 and this results in a DOF (depth of field) of 30/40cm~infinity with (almost) max. sharpness. Smaller apertures (F11~F22) have more DOF but lesser general sharpness by diffraction = light scattering through a particularly small aperture.
Unfortunately on May 20th 2017, Dick Schippers passed away at the age of 70. His panoramas will remain available as beautiful memories.

Lew Wurdeman has been a professional photographer since 1996 and started shooting virtual tours in 2003 which resulted in launching 360minnesota.com. Having relocated to New Mexico, we have a newmexicovirtualtours.com site, and we have changed our panorama business to Omniround. We have a business presence in Arizona, Colorado, Minnesota, Nevada, New Mexico, and Texas.
Our first client was a property management company with condo and apartment complexes across the country that wanted virtual tours to showcase their properties. This led to a mix of commercial, residential, and artistic panoramas being photographed in a variety of locales.
Having been in the business since the early days, we have a variety of camera, lens, and tripod combinations to produce a wide variety of shoot possiblities for any project from large to small.
We are a technologically evolving company keeping up on the latest in photographic and panoramic equipment, software and techniques. The latest "big thing" being HDR (High Dynamic Range) images using muliple bracketed shots at various exposures to dramatically improve the dynamic range of the images overcoming the shortcoming of digital photography.
We are the promoters of the new name for what we sell, the Omniview.
Omniround is available to shoot your virtual tour or panoramic project anywhere in the world. Have passport, will travel!
I started with spherical panoramic photography in 2005 with my first experiments. First I began with partial pano's but later I made the full spherical view. By the time my abilities increased more and more. So I developed an enthusiasm in VR photographs, because this is a fascinating way to take a look around in the whole world. Finally I wanted to add a few panorama shots of my authorship, so now I want to share more and more panoramas with other people on 360cities and other sites. For me it is all about quality, not about quantity. There is no need to produce masses of poor worked out pano's.
As a truth seeker I don't trust in the mainstream media and I reject all kind of religions, because they are cages for the mind. Therefore you won't find any churches, cathedrals or monasteries in my images. I'm interested in photography, video, publishing, journalism, languages (Dutch and Danish) and spiritual items.
Meine ersten Panorama-Experimente begannen 2005. Zuerst versuchte ich mich an Teilpanoramen, fand dann aber später zu den vollen 360 Grad-Rundum-Panoramen. Nach und nach entwickelten sich meine Fähigkeiten. Immer mehr begeisterte ich mich für Virtual-Reality-Fotos, denn ich finde, dies ist eine faszinierende Art, sich gleichsam auf der ganzen Welt umzuschauen. Irgendwann wollte ich dann auch einige Panoramas aus meiner eigenen Herstellung publizieren, und zwar auf 360cities und anderen sites. Es geht mir bei meinen Arbeiten nicht um Quantität, sondern um Qualität, denn ich habe nicht das Bedürfnis, in jeder Ecke meiner Region möglichst viele visuelle "Duftmarken" zu hinterlassen.
Ich betrachte mich als Wahrheitssucher und ich habe ein großes Mißtrauen gegenüber den Mainstream-Medien. Außerdem distanziere ich mich von allen Religionen, denn sie sind Gefängnisse für den Geist. Und somit werden da auch kaum Kirchen oder Klöster in meinen Panoramen auftauchen. Ich interessiere mich für Fotografie, Video, Journalismus, Sprachen (vor allem Niederländisch und Dänisch) und spirituelle Themen.
Met mijn eerste panorama experimenten was ik gestart in 2005. Beetje bij beetje ontwikkelde ik mijn vaardigheden. Eerst heb ik met gedeeltelijke pano's gewerkt, maar enkele jaren later ben ik dan op de volle 360 graad kijk overgegaan. Meer en meer wordt ik enthousiast van virtual reality foto's, want ik denk, dat dit een fascinerende manier is, om als het ware in de heele wereld rondom te kijken. Op een gegeven moment wilde ik ook een aantal panorama's van mijn eigen productie ter beschikking stellen, en dit op 360cities. Voor mij gaat het voor al om kwaliteit, niet om kwantiteit. Mogen andere mensen aan iedere hoek hun visueel plassertje achterlaten, voor mij hoeft dat niet.
Ik beschouw mezelf als waarheidszoeker en ik heb een groot wantrouwen in opzicht op de mainstream media. Ik hou ook niet van religies, want met hun domme dogmata zijn ze allemaal kooien voor de geest. Dus zal je ook haast nooit kerken of kloosters in mijn panoramas zien. Ik ben geïnteresseerd in fotografie, video, journalistiek, talen (vooral Nederlands en Deens) en spirituele onderwerpen.

Med mine første eksperimenter jeg var startet i 2005. Først har jeg startet med delvise (mindre end 360 gråd) panoramaer, senere lavede jeg kuglepanoramaer. Lidt efter lidt udviklede jeg mine evner. Flere og flere entusiastisk blev jeg for virtual reality billederne, fordi jeg synes, at det er en fascinerende måde at kigge sig rundt omkring på verden. På et punkt vilde jeg meget gerne deltager med nogle panoramaer fra min egen produktion, og faktisk også på 360cities. For mig går det om kvalitet, ikke om kvantitet. Jeg vil ikke laver min lille duftmark på enhver hjørne af jordkloden. Det kan andre folk gør.
Jeg betragter mig selv som en sandhed søgende, og jeg har en stor mistaenkelse på mainstream medierne. Og jeg taenker, alle slags religioner er faengsels for ånden. Og det betyder, at der findes naermest ingen kirker eller kloster i mine panoramaer. Jeg er interesseret i fotografi, video, journalistik, talerne (Dansk og Hollandsk) og spirituelle emner.

I'm a 37 year old husband and father of two (foremost). I have lived in the beautiful San Francisco Bay Area for most of my life. My home is in Pacifica, which is two cities south of San Francisco on the coast.
My first pano was on a nikon 950 and Kaidan pano head using VR works about 9 years ago. I had a long interval where I did not produce any panoramas. I eventually thought I'd get back into the field - and I first started with a 0-360 one shot lens. Soon I upgraded to a more updated pano head from Kaidan for cylindrical panoramas.
And then, everything changed. A friend of mine sent me a full screen panorama made with HDR techniques. I was floored. I realized that there was something big going on - and I wanted to be a part of it.
I started researching sites, and living in on-line forums, to discover what I needed to do to create such images. In my journey, I have gone from wanting do to this hobby/profession for money to wanting to increase my skills for the love of the art that is panoramic photography.
I will keep learning and experimenting so I can leave my tours for others to see for years to come.

I discovered panoramic photography in the year 1997 and create first 360º panorama with my first digital camera Olympus. I was living in one of the world's most beautiful cities Prague (Czech Republic) and in 1998 I have created interactive CD-ROM Praga Virtualis (production of Barrandov Multimedia) with 500 panoramas and interactive map and multi language information.
I have travel around the world and settle in tropical Australia, Cairns in 2000. I am still active photographer and I enjoy panoramic and 360 photography.
I hope you like my small example on 360cities.
I was born in Switzerland back in 1946 and inherited my father's dedication (addiction??) for photography. I am grateful for this 'genetic endowment' because it opened my eyes for the beauty of this world.
My life-long dream to live in the USA became true in 2008 when we finally were lucky winners in the 'Green Card Lottery'. Now we're living in North Salt Lake, Utah where the world is even more beautiful than anywhere else, at least in my eyes ;-)
Humans have this extraordinary sense of sight to see the world, not only in a wide angle perspective but in 'panorama mode'. So I was never happy I had to use the 2:3 format to show the beauty of our world. Therefore I created my first panos back in the 80-s, back then using paper, scissors and glue. The first digital 360° single row pano I took about 2002 on top of our home in Liechtenstein using a 1 MegaPixel HP Camera. What a progress, no more glue, no more scissors!
Some years ago I walked right into the '360Cities-trap'. I was not only flabbergasted, I immediately knew that's how I wanted to express myself. So I started at the very bottom of the learning curve and was lucky enough to get in contact with John Austin Roberts who was a great mentor for me. I have to give my sincere thanks to him. And thanks to all members of our community for the inspiration.
I like making spherical panoramas.
Since Google Panoramio, and before Google Earth, I posted a lot of pic of beautiful place around my location where I live (Puglia region, Salento district, extreme South-East of Italy). I started to make pano from an app, with a smartphone, after with a 360 camera, and now I'm in DSLR with a very good resolution, and many satisfaction also in handheld mode.
At today I'm Google Street View PhotoGrapher, Level 7, local guide, with over 16Million views.
Hope you like my panorama, enjoy it...and write me for any question.
All the best!

Born 1968 in New Zealand, by the time I was 6 I found that a steady supply of empty cigarette packets were a great place to draw, and I did to a large degree. Because these packets were small my sketching became quite detailed; which is the reason why for the rest of my life I was so obsessed with detail, often much to the annoyance of my friends. Now though not quite so much as age has brought, to a certain degree, the ability to compromise.
In 1977 we moved to Windsor England and I've lived in the area ever since.
In 1986 I can remember walking past a camera store and being fascinated by the cameras. It wasn't long before I had my first camera and yes you guessed it, an Olympus OM10. It wasn't too long before I had the mother of all systems; a Nikon F3 and all the accoutrements.
I acquired a passion for super field of view quite early on and was often taking multiple shots with just a 50mm and sticking them together to make photo montages or mosaics.
For a long time after I didn't touch a camera until about 2007, when I realised that with modern tech I could do everything and more that I always dreamed of doing back in the late eighties, early nineties.
The equipment I use is:
Canon 5D mkII with either EF 15mm or Sigma 8mm put on a Manfrotto 303SPH panorama tripod head then edited with a combination of Photoshop CS5, Autodesk Stitcher Unlimited 2010 and Pano2VR.
If you want to contact me, my address is firstname.lastname@example.org.
We don't do commercial photography and we are not interested in shooting as a means of income. We shoot beautiful scenic spots in Rostov-on-Don for the story and would be grateful to anyone who will give us a unique, beautiful place to shoot.
We mainly engaged in video shooting in 4K and spherical panoramas shooting less.
Our video Channel about Rostov-na-Donu can watch it on YouTube: ROSTOVisualFX
Beginners in Spherical photos can recommend our video tutorial on Erasure of the tripod in the Nadir (bottom panorama) and add there own logo.
All of our panoramas was made on camera 360 Samsung Gear, if You are satisfied with is the quality of our panoramas you can recommend to purchase this camera.
Although this camera has a number of disadvantages. The occurrence of perspiration and condensation, through 15 shooting this is the worst drawback.
Also Gear 360 supports only a very limited number of compatible phones (SGS 6 and SGS 7 only). Although the camera can run autonomously without connection to the phone at all. But in this case You will not be able to change the settings of White Balance, exposure Compensation, ISO Limit, and also enable HDR mode. However, there is a solution, we had programmers, and they did a modified version of the application supported by older phones (SGS4 for example), as well as phones from other manufacturers (other than Samsung).
Download a modified version of remote app for Samsung Gear 360 with support for all phones running Android 5.x You can follow this link: Samsung Gear 360 Manger Mod RVFX360
I discovered panoramic photography in the year 2000 after getting my first digital camera (a canon digital elph) which came with its own primitive panorama stitching software. Soon after that I imagined that a virtual tour of Prague, one of the world's most beautiful cities, would be a great idea. I first worked on prague360.com with Adam Trachtman. At the time, there were no google maps (or any other mapping API) available for Prague, and it took some time to even find a high-resolution street map of Prague that could be used for this purpose. The original site used a flash-based map component combined with interactive panoramas played via the QTVR / Shockwave / Spi-v / Java / DevalVR plugins.
At the time, prague360.com was one of the Internet's first websites combining a map with georeferenced 360º photos - predating Google Streetview by two years.
When the Google Maps API became available, Prague360.com morphed into 360cities.net, and more and more panoramic photographers used this platform to publish their growing collections of 360º photos. The company was formally founded in 2007 with angel investment. In 2008 it became integrated with Google Earth, where it remains over ten years later. 608076502
In 2014 I started my next company, Sphericam, designing and building professional-grade 360º cameras for Virtual Reality.
I do consulting work for startups involved in camera hardware design, VR, and 360º imaging.
I'm always interested in shooting Gigapixel images, especially of cities, from the top of a skyscraper.

Ik maak al lang foto's van mensen en natuur. Mijn eerste goede camera was een Nikkormat Ftn en een paar jaar later aangevuld met een Nikkormat EL.
Ik heb zelf nog zwart-wit-foto's afgedrukt en bewerkt met doordrukken en tegenhouden en polarisatie enz. Ook toen maakte ik al panorama-opnames en deze papieren versies plakte ik aan elkaar
Mijn eerste digitale camera was een Minolta 2-miljoen-pixels-camera. Mijn eerste digitale spiegelreflex was de Nikon D-70. Later kocht ik daarbij de D-300.
Een lichte uitvoering van een goede digitalecamera met verwisselbare lenzen heb ik later aangeschaft, de Nikon J1.
Ik woon in Zwolle en fiets regelmatig rondom Zwolle en maak dan foto's.
I had my first contact with photography in the mid-seventies, when I was thirteen years old. At that time my step-uncle, who worked as a freelance photo-journalist for a local newspaper, taught me a little about taking photographs and processing negatives and photoprints in the darkroom. I was pretty fascinated, but was unfortunately talked out of the photographer's profession as an "unprofitable art". After some decades, I now feel more and more excited about photography again, especially panorama photography.
Working in the media industry since 1982, I am now the owner of a small agency, located not far from Würzburg in Northern Bavaria. I would be very pleased to be contacted via my website
From in New York City, Jook Leung is a professional 360 Panoramic Photographer intent on capturing wide-view images of people in urban landscapes around the world. His work has been described as "visually rich narratives depicting the intricacies of the world's cultures with the full spectrum of human emotion." Through his work, viewers can experience not only what the world looks like from a single vantage point, but the entire visual spectrum that they would have if they were spinning around in a circle while standing on the same point in real time.
Spanning the last two decades, Jook's 360 panoramic photography reveals the more subtle interactions between subjects and their environment that might not be apparent in regular photos. His work captures greater detail than standard photographs, offering viewers an understanding of the composition in deeper context. Differing from videography, panoramic photographs can be viewed in their entirety in a single moment or presented digitally, allowing the viewer to explore its dimensions with a mouse or a touch screen.
Always looking for the his next shot and ready to see it before it happens, Jook is internationally recognized as an innovator in spherical panoramic photography. In a rare achievement, he was awarded three consecutive Fuji Film Masterpiece Awards for photographic excellence in electronic imaging by the International Association of Panoramic Photographers (IAPP). Additionally, his experience spans 34 years as an advertising and editorial photographer with a background in photo-illustration and digital imaging. Commercially, his current work with immersive panoramas includes hospitality, tourism, events and museum projects.
Jook has given presentations and workshops about his work at International Virtual Reality Photography Association (IVRPA) / VR Summits and at International Association of Panoramic Photographers (IAPP) Conventions. He has written articles for Panorama Magazine. In January 2005, his panoramas were featured in an on-air interview on ABC's News Now program about his 360VR panoramas of Times Square on New Year's Eve.
Nato a Grosseto nell'Agosto del 1972 ho frequentato l'ITC di Grosseto per poi proseguire gli studi presso l'Università di Siena laureandomi in Scienze Politiche nell'anno 2000. Sposatomi nel 2005, vivo in campagna a 5 minuti dalla città di Grosseto. Le mie passioni sono, oltre che la fotografia, i viaggi, la buona cucina, il buon vino italiano e la birra tedesca. Fin da piccolo mi piaceva molto scattare foto. A quei tempi utilizzavo una reflex Vivitar 35mm di papà. Dopo alcuni anni acquistai uno zoom 28-105. Nel 2000 acquistai la mia prima compatta digitale da 4Mpixel con zoom 3x. Da questa data ho continuato ad utilizzare sempre le compatte digitali abbandonando la mia vecchia reflex a rullino. Dopo quattro anni acquistai una Fujifilm FinePix E500 più un adattatore per aumentarne il grandangolo così da poter realizzare belle foto di interni e di panorami. Nel 2008, utilizzando la mia piccola Sony DSC-WX1 con grandangolo da 24mm e risoluzione da 10Mpixel, ho iniziato a realizzare le mie prime foto panoramiche. Cosa molto semplice perché basta selezionare la modalità "panorama” e muovere la fotocamera da sinistra verso destra per realizzare in automatico foto del formato 4912x1080 pixel. Inizialmente ero molto soddisfatto con questo tipo di fotografie ma, pian piano, scoprii che il loro limite era dato dal fattore vicinanza. Se si è lontani dal soggetto che si vuol fotografare si può realizzare un'eccellente fotografia ma se si è troppo vicini o si è all'interno di una piccola stanza non si ha sufficiente spazio per realizzarle in quanto si tratta di foto "lunghe” e "strette”. Dopo un po' di ricerche su internet sentii parlare di "stitching”. Scoprii che era ciò che mi serviva. In effetti si tratta di una tecnica che fonde più scatti in una sola immagine. Per far ciò è necessario utilizzare degli appositi software. Dunque in questo modo tenendo in verticale la macchina fotografica e scattando più foto è possibile ottenere una foto più grande, più alta rispetto a quelle ottenute in automatico con la modalità "panorama” della mia piccola digitale. Con lo stitching anche una piccola digitale compatta può realizzare "grandi foto”. Mi è sempre piaciuto più scattare foto a paesaggi, che non a persone. All'inizio del 2010, navigando su Google Earth, scoprii delle piccole foto rosse che si trasformano in sfere. Incuriosito, incomincio a cliccarci su ed ecco che vengo a scoprire che esistono le "foto Sferiche” (chiamate anche "immersive” o "cubiche”). In effetti le parole descrivono bene ciò che sono: stitching di foto di tutti i lati compresi lo Zenith ed in Nadir. In altre parole foto dell'orizzonte a 360° + la foto dell'alto + la foto del basso uniti da un software appositamente sviluppato per questo scopo. Per realizzare le foto sferiche c'è bisogno però non solo di un apposito software che accorpi le varie foto scattate ma anche di altri appositi strumenti quali: 1) un treppiede; 2) apparato rotante per realizzare le foto dell'orizzonte a 360°; 3) una reflex digitale allo scopo di regolare manualmente sia valore dell'ISO che quello del diaframma; 4) di un obiettivo grandangolare molto spinto definito "fisheye” da 8mm o 10mm; 5) di una "testa panoramica” su cui installare la reflex digitale; questo è uno strumento indispensabile per trovare ed utilizzare il "punto nodale” per realizzare gli scatti in successione (non starò qui adesso a spiegare cos'è il punto nodale per non annoiarvi…); 6) saper usare un programma di fotoritocco (talvolta indispensabile per rimuovere macchie, riflessi o oggetti che renderebbero meno bella la foto finale); 7) un software che trasforma la foto assemblata in un file "flash”; 8) un software (come ad esempio il file scaricabile gratuitamente "flash video player”) che vi permetterà di vedere il filmato flash realizzato; Il bello (o il brutto) per chi volesse avventurarsi nel realizzare le foto sferiche sta nel fatto che si tratta di una tecnica che fonde insieme sia la classica foto realizzata con una reflex, sia l'uso del computer. Dunque per chi ama entrambi è un bel passatempo ma per chi ha fretta di realizzare foto da poter vedere sul pc o sulla tv come normali foto dovrà armarsi di molta pazienza, studiare qualche software specifico ed imparare un po' di tecnica……
Ich bin Jahrgang 1977 und Panograf aus Leidenschaft. Eigentlich bin ich gar kein Fotograf, zumindest kein gelernter. Ich arbeite hauptberuflich im Bereich Erneuerbare Energien und fotografiere in meiner Freizeit leidenschaftlich gern.
Meine ersten Berührungen mit der Fotografie hatte ich bereits im Jahr 1999 auf diversen Rockkonzerten. Damals habe ich einige Bands über viele Jahre begleitet und fotografiert. Über die Weitwinkelfotografie kam ich letztlich zur Panoramafotografie. Ich wollte viel, am besten alles aufs Bild bringen! Ab 2006 packte ich die Panorama Technik richtig an. Heute entstehen Gigapixel-Panoramen und Virtuelle Rundgänge, die mit HDR-Technik und Bildbearbeitung den letzten Schliff erhalten - alles aus Leidenschaft für das große Ganze.
Daher ist Eskimue-Panorama.de nach wie vor ein rein privat orientiertes Projekt.
Alle Fotografien unterliegen dem Urheberrecht. Wer das eine oder andere Foto nutzen möchte, kann sich an mich wenden, ich erteile sehr gerne entsprechende Nutzungsrechte.
Sarah Schindehette was born in Richmond, Virginia in 1991. She received her Bachelor of Fine Arts in Photography from the University of Maryland, Baltimore County in 2013. She currently resides in Baltimore, Maryland. My exhibition shows different groups of people, aged from teenagers to young adults, in their ‘natural’ social habitat. There is an obvious disconnect between persons of different groups, often age groups or racial groups, that often causes dual personas. My interest is aimed toward becoming part of these groups and experiencing moments as an “insider.” The use of the 360-degree panorama creates a fully-immersive experience for the viewers and visually portrays the experience of being a temporary insider. The photographs all focus on different groups of subjects, ranging from teenagers to young adults, interacting with others within their social clique or simply alone.

Service and content provider (360° photo and video licensing) for high quality 360° panorama shooting, 360°-8K-video shooting as well as 360-post-production (stiching, etc.).
Interest in photography apart had First seen a panorama on a google street view. Few months later was making them.
Delhi, The part of India i live have very few panoramas and that too of only Tourist Interest Places.
I am no wildlife or nature lover nor do i travel. Even my messenger nickname is dilliwala. I was wanting to put lots of Photos and Panoramas of Local Public Interest on a Map of Delhi. But since Google Street View was stopped by the Police of Bangalore and the related laws in india unclear on what can be shot from a "Public Place", I try to stay clear of Government Buildings, Public Utilities like Metros, Militiary Areas which are anyway photography restricted. Privacy Issues of People faces appearing is not a concern yet.
I am left with clicking happening Colorful Markets and Bustling Local Streets. Hope i am not seen as trying to Promote any Business inadvertently appearing on such panoramas, but thats what you will find here.
I do have a weblink www.My1st.in/360view to offer such services at possibly worlds lowest price.
Two Backgrounds Photography
Merging two backgrounds to create an identity. This is the concept used by the photographer Ricardo Wolf, who, from his own angle manages to merge the sky with the land in his images, consequently creating intensity in unique sceneries. Ricardo has been working in the Photography market since 2008; he has worked for top enterprises producing image databases and architectural photography, as well as essays and events.
Ricardo uses his wide angle lens to capture images from the bottom up, which makes them grandiose and complete, resulting in a space-like panorama. This technique is his trade-mark; the images put together two different backgrounds: “By photographing this way we link the earth to the sky as if they were opposites that work together and complete each other, the beginning and the end”. Ricardo explains.
The photographer also highlights the importance of telling a story through his images. From the viewpoint of his own technique, which he developed throughout his career, Ricardo Wolf manages to spot in the everyday life those elements and expressions his client is expecting and hoping for and he is able to transfer it to the end consumer.
With the style of some of his photographs being out of the ordinary, Ricardo was awarded a prize by the Fotografe Melhor magazine, an important publication in its field. The image of a cowboy playing the guitar in Times Square caught attention because of his outfit: it was midnight and the temperature was below zero, the cowboy was wearing only a pair of boots, a hat and a pair of white briefs. The composition which illustrated one of the magazines’ pages conveying nightlife in New York City.
The photographer’s work is acclaimed by top companies which compose his portfolio such as: Petrobras, Vale, L’Oreal, Ernst & Young, Fetranspor, Johnson & Jonhson, Ford Foundation, New Holland and Sotreq. Ricardo has also become an expert in capturing shots from major events and covered the 2014 FIFA World Cup, the 2013 Fifa Confederations Cup, 2013 Fifa Cup Tour, the 2012 Parintins Festival, 2011 Rock in Rio, all of which were for Coca-Cola.
Ricardo is also a specialist in indoor and facade photography for architectural projects. For him, it is a work of passion as lighting is the major challenge and the environment details must be thoroughly explored so as to obtain the most impacting visual results. “Architecture is very interesting as it demands that you wait for the specific moment to shoot the ideal photograph. This could sometimes take several days” Ricardo told us.
When he was a little boy, Ken Aaron became fascinated by cameras—how they work, what they showed and what they didn’t. For years, photography had been his hobby—he learned of its storytelling value while thumbing through post-vacation family photos. But, over time, it became his passion—so much so that it inspired him to leave a successful and lucrative career in IT marketing and executive recruiting in the late-1990s, just to start all over again as a photographer’s assistant.
From there, he’d work his way up this career ladder one rung at a time, enrolling for classes at the Academy of Art to learn the technical education balanced with the practical experience learned working with other photographers. Since moving to Portland in 2003, Ken has been shooting for himself and for commercial clients (including Neighborhood Notes, which he founded in 2008) using a variety of techniques (high dynamic range, pinhole, macro photography, infrared, 360-degree panorama, and hand coloring) in both digital and film media.
Ken loves the to make photographs of places and spaces. These could be natural landscapes, urban environments, or man made structures.
I have worked in the field of computers and digital imaging for the past 33 years and been involved in the evolution and acceptance of computer imaging from both a hardware and software perspective since joining U.K. digital pioneer Quantel in 1984.
During my time with Quantel, I was responsible for introducing digital technology to the arts and media industries in the U.S. from my base in Silicon Valley. I also travelled regularly to the U.K. to work with Qantel’s development team on the UI and functionality of what would become the industry standard of it’s time: the Quantel Paintbox.
In 1987, I left Quantel to start his own Hollywood based company, Electric Paint. Employing this new digital technology I produced Key Art for major motion pictures including Edward Scissorhand, Terminator II, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Die Hard I & II, Silence of the Lambs, JFK & Born on the Fourth of July and album covers such as Michael Hutchence’s MaxQ, Nirvana’s Nevermind, Elvis Costello’s Spike, and The Beasty Boys’ St Paul’s Café.
Returning to Australia in 1994, I established Red Square Productions, one of the country’s first Web Development Agencey. Red Square went on to develop long lasting business relationships with companies such Qantas, Telstra, YHA, Panasonic Australia, The Good Guys, Harvey World Travel, Maersk Line Shipping and the oneworld Alliance of Airlines. Red Square Productions was known for its innovative approach to web development, pioneering a number of technologies in Australia and popularising 360˚ immersive imagery, creating unique virtual tours of sporting locations such as Olympic Park, accommodation offerings by Australian Youth Hostels and promotional events for Panasonic Australia, Qantas and Telstra.
In 2008 I merged Red Square’s business with local agency Webqem, allowing me to pursue my interest in travel, 360˚ panorama photography, and all things digital.
In 2012 I became involved with an Australian start-up company Mogeneration and its tablet publishing solution Oomph taking on the role of Creative Technologist.
I was recognised in the Australian Mobile Awards for my work in developing the award winning apps for Sky-OneCentral Park (Frost Design/Fraser Properties), Experience the Highs ( New England (NSW) tourism) apps and his 360˚ panoramic photographic contribution to the MCA Anish Kapoor app.
In 2014 I returned to my home city of Adelaide to focus on new technologies and ways of providing 360˚ Panoramic Photography, 360˚ Video and 360˚ Web & App services.
Today I am working with a diverse group of clients to develop 360˚ virtual tour content. My clients include the French luxury cruising company Ponant (Worldwide locations), various divisions of the University of Tasmania (Web and Mobile VR apps), Pichi Richi Railway (Quorn), Stuartholme School (Brisbane) and MadebyFairfax (Sydney).
The images you see here are the result of an interest in panoramic photography that goes back over 35 years. As a student in the School of Architecture at the University of Minnesota, one often began a project by going out to a hypothetical building site with a 35mm camera and taking a series of sequential snapshots. Then, back at the studio, with a little scotch tape and the exercise of an ability not exceeding that of laying dominoes end to end, a panorama would emerge.
After two decades of dealing with real buildings on real sights, vacations to exotic places, scotch tape, exacto blades, band aids and some unsatisfactory experiments with early stitching software, I began to look at the real thing. I began to research real panoramic cameras. In 1996 I took my first true panoramic photograph with the Hulcherama Panoramic Camera. This first effort was a bewildering 360° blur of trees and boulders near Devil's Den on The Gettysburg National Battlefield, but it was the start. Subsequently, I honed a tenuous professionalism with this subtle, high-strung camera which, when it was good, was very, very good indeed.
The panoramas displayed on this page were taken with either the Hulcher or more recently, as digital technology superseded analogue, the GigaPan system. Initially, I was going to be the new interpreter of the American Civil War, a sort of historical messiah laying open heretofore unknown truths about truly historic landscapes where the fate of a divided union was played out, if play is the word. I've taken dozens of panoramas of the Gettysburg and Antietam battlefields and many others. Over the years I have expanded my portfolio to several other subjects and landscapes of interest.
You may notice that these panoramas are all cylindrical projections. Not spherical. I made this choice early on. My final work is entirely a traditional two dimensional medium...the photographic print. Although the viewing of spherical panoramas is a fascinating and informative experience, the ability to see the entire 360 degree field of vision at once in a single, unrolled, flat photographic image allows compositional and graphic advantages unavailable from a purely rotational viewing system. In fact, it's an experience not even an on-site presence will allow. You may see how I compose, print and frame the final 360 degree images in full format on my website
I'm always interested in hearing from people interested in panoramas. You can reach me at

Hi my name is Liana Hong, I enjoy photography and videography, I normally focus on aerial photography, using my drone to take photos, videos, and panoramas from up above. I first took interest in spherical panoramas back in 2009 when I discovered an early iPhone app (Photosynth by Microsoft) that could take and stitch 360 photos using my iphone4. Since then I've always had an interest in panoramas and have gotten gear like 360 cameras or drones with automatic panorama features. I like to share my 360 photos to google maps under the username LianaDrone. My instagram handle is @Clouds.And.Coral and Facebook @CloudsAndCoral and www.CloudsAndCoral.com
