I originally trained as a Graphic Designer in the business-to-business Audio Visual communication field in the UK. I ran his own graphic design and photographic business for ten years in London, UK.
Being a self-taught photographer, I'm interested in and fascinated by Photography.
This passion accompanies me for many years of my personal and professional life in artistic and scientific fields. In particular, I have been exploring uses of macro- and microscopic, stereoscopic, infrared and panoramic photography.
Over the past years, since images can be digitally stitched together to create multi-megapixel or gigapixel images, I'm shooting wide-field compound images acquired through the microscope and spherical-panoramic views of my natural and industrial environment - for fun and on assignment.
I started my career as an officer in the early nineties. My big interest in technology led me early into the field of planning IP networks for the Swedish armed forces.

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.
Life is a bundle of events. Some events are sweet and memorable. Good Photographer with Creativity, could flick & store such sweet memories in his Camera.

“Anyone can take pictures, I specialize in crafting images.”
I believe in the power of an image to tell a story. Less is more. I don’t regret the time I spend in front of the monitor to craft a perfect image for several hours. Post-production became one of the most important part of process. I strive to create photographs that communicate more than just basic information about a property or structure. Without reference to work it is my aim that clients will be a hundred percent satisfied with my work, it is essential for a highly successful business. My approach is transformative, making functional, stunning appearance combining ambient lights with artificial flash fires.
How did I find my career path?
After graduation (majoring in Photography) I was suddenly hired as a contracted photographer from Barceló Castillo Beach Resort in Canary Islands. As a photographer in Canarias I was constantly inspired by beauty, permanent sunshine with blue sky. I set a goal: Create amazing and memorable photographs with professionalism and the respect that the work deserves. It led me into one of the most exciting careers I can possibly imagine. If I had unlimited budget I would do the same as now, it is a passion.
I expertise in a wide range of photography including exterior/interior, lifestyle and architectural photography, combined with unique post-processing skills. My photography services cover architectural industry (hospitality, interior design, commercial spaces, real estate photography, virtual tours) for resorts, restaurants, for any architectural products industries.

His work has been featured by CBS News, Space.com, Accuweather, PetaPixel, Roundme, TeliportMe, Google, and in several galleries, magazines, and newspapers.
Aaron is a pioneer in the developing field of high-resolution, high-dynamic range imagery, in particular spherical and gigapixel panoramas, virtual tours, and 4K / 360° timelapse video. With his background in photography and computers he has been able to help develop and test software and hardware for many companies in this growing market.
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.
I practice the picture for some years and I started to digital slr short time ago (in the meantime I made some video and my field was the video picture). Then with the emergence of very good digital SLR camera I dropped the video too costly and time-greedy both in shooting and in post-production time or more is calculated in hours but in days, what have square eyes!
I found the process of 360 ° that there are a few months and I am equipped with material to make a real passion in some time because if everything goes as I want I will build my business and join in small novice the world's leaders in 360 ° as Arnaud Frich, Vidale, Morelle, and many others who gave me the desire to learn this technique so special that the virtual tour.

”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.'
Thanks for looking,

Born in the Central Pyrenees. During the last 50 years I have not lived in my land but I am still as attached to it as if I were living.
A fan of photography and just a hobbyist. I also do my first steps in the field of photography with drones
Mountaineer when I can. The mountain is my homeland, it is where I feel safe.
I have been a lecturer in Geology at The University of Newcastle for the past 30 years. My main reason for learning how to take full spherical panoramas was to aid with the development of virtual field trips. More recently, the scope of these panoramas has expanded into the fields of architecture, botany, history and natural heritage.
In terms of equipment, I am a bit of a 'purist'. All panoramas have been captured with Pentax DSLRs - early on with a K-70, then moving on to a K-3 Mark iii, and more recently a K-1 Mark ii. Lens used is typically the SMC Pentax-DA 10-17mm F3.5-4.5 Fish-Eye ED [IF], with the exception of the infrared panoramas which were captured with the SMC Pentax-DA 12-24mm F4 ED AL [IF] and a Hoya R72 filter. As of August 2023, I have been using the film era prime SMC Pentax-A 16mm F2.8 Fish-Eye with the K1 mark ii. Cameras are mounted on a Cavix PH-720A panoramic head, which is in turn mounted on a Vanguard Alta Pro 2+ 263AP to facilitate nadir shots. I shoot RAW imagery that is then processed in ACR and stitched in PTGui Pro.

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.
We are a team of scientists and engineers seeking to support and learn from the cleaning of the Gowanus Canal in Brooklyn, NY. We designed and built an Aquatic Robotic Vehicle (ARV) which is placed in the canal, collects sensor data (such as water quality) and takes pictures both below and above the water level. We are currently testing an automated panoramic rig, which allows us to create the panoramas shown on our account. We are aiming to implement a panoramic interface on our citizen science website, where YOU, our citizen scientists, come into play. We need help tagging all of the images that our ARV collects, whether it is a fish, a rock, or an unidentified object.The aggregate data will help us study the conditions at the canal in different places and over time.

SCHOOFS Robert, Dutchman, born in Cameroon.
Following a precision engineering training.
He worked as assistant for a photographer, Later in a professional darkroom and then as a repair engineer.
His knowledge in the field of large format, Robert has deepened by studying the "Foto Know-how" of Koch.
He told us his own way of working:
"I have theworld's biggest photographic studio at my disposal - God's own nature! I travel around a lot there with my miniature camera, it serve only as a "notebook" Whith my pictorial miniature camera note I sit down at home and plan my journeys. Once my itinerary is established, I go to the chosen places with my large format. In some cases I use an open magnesium fire to light up the shadows.
In the field of nature photography, there is no alternative to the large format. I consider photography large format as the only way to faithfully reproduce all the details and nuances. "
Today, Robert is based in Cameroon and with the arrival of digital photography,High Dynamic Range (HDR) photography and 360 degree photo, Robert has found an alternative to the big format:
The virtual reality (VR)
Cylindrical 360º panoramas - One notch higher are 360° photos which capture the whole field of view in all directions around the photographer. These are sometimes called cylindrical panoramas. They cover 360-degrees around but not up and down view. These are too created by stitching multiple photos together. The only real difference from partial panoramas is that you need to make sure the first and the last photos overlap. There are also so called "one shot" 360-degree lenses but they are by definition very low quality compared to the traditional stitched panoramas.
Valeria and Giuseppe (valgeis) have always photographed for passion. Their union increases both and together they multiply their energies by sharing their inclinations. With the advent of digital photography and especially with the purchase of the reflex, they enjoy exploring the infinite possibilities in this field, experimenting with new techniques: time-lapse, immersive photography, astrophotography, macros and everything else that arouses their enthusiasm.
As part of the time-lapse, they deepen the technique for night shots and make various amateur videos. Fortunately, they still have a lot to learn.
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.

Alexy Joffre Frangieh is a Lebanese artist, who started exploring visual arts at an early age. He acquired considerable skills in electronic visual content creation. He later on saw the potential of Photography as a tool to visualize the artistic concepts he believes in. Frangieh always thought that “there is a charm in the imagery when one deals with a sequence of photographs.”
Time-lapse was one of the most direct applications of sequencing, since it introduces time and choreography. This very discipline pushes the “individual” photograph to abide by the dynamics of the “whole” and vice versa.
Alexy has many Time-lapse based works broadcasted on leading regional televisions in the form of channel bumpers. He is also a specialist in immersive imagery and giga-pixel imaging that are also forms of sequencing.
Alexy’s personal research is based on “Structure and Behavior.” The structure for the form and the behavior for the motion, both raise a challenge and re-question “rules of photography” if any.
He had designed many field-specific modifications to existing gear, besides; he had developed a long time-lapse device based on heavily modified Nikon cameras.
Alexy has made numerous installations and video artworks based on photographic capture.
Briefly, he thinks that “Nature hates Stillness” and “Life is in the Motion,” thus photograph or a still is a constituting element of a Work and never the Work itself. “After all it is the continuity of those stills that create the Motion,” he states.
Currently he is researching data-mining and artificial intelligence, and its creative possibilities when applied on sequences and large volumes of photographs.
He is working on a book that took one full year of fixed interval shooting. The book will consist of one frame but 300 scenes. 300 carefully selected captures, showcasing the singularity of both time and space and what lies beyond.
James has a passion for travel and photograpy was the extension of that passion, and now it has grown to be something he truly enjoys.He has the most work experience in architectural style photography which extends into the commericial field. However he also loves nature, landscapes and cityscapes while capturing images that tell stories that talk to the people. James has an extensive background in Economics and Business and he enjoys to create healthy client relationships and to see his clients achieve their goals. He has clients in the United States, South America, and welcomes clients from around the world if they are interested in his services.
He is the owner if People and Places Photography which you can visit online at www.peopleandplaces.info
I live in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada near two UNESCO World Biosphere Reserves: Niagara Escarpment and Long Point.Considering there is only 600 World Biosphere Reserves in 109 countries, I am very fortunate.
Niagara Escarpment reserve is one of Canada's most scenic landforms. It soars 510 meters (1675 ft.) at its highest point and stretches 725 km (450 miles) from Niagara Falls to Tobermory and outlying islands, at the tip of the Bruce Peninsula in Georgian Bay. It is a rich mosaic of forests, rivers and streams, waterfalls, farms, recreation areas, scenic views, cliffs, wetlands, rolling hills, mineral resources, wildlife habitats, historic sites, villages, towns and cities. It hosts some of Ontario's finest skiing, fishing, camping, swimming, scuba diving, rock climbing, boating, hiking, bird watching and sight-seeing areas.
Long Point reserve encompasses a rich mosaic of ecological systems associated with the erosion deposit sand spit formations in the Laurentian Great Lakes, as well as some of the largest remaining forest tracts in 'Carolinian Canada'. The variety of habitats supports a rich flora and fauna, including a waterfowl staging area and migration stop-over area for land birds with a continental importance.
The immersive photography is an excellent way to present the beauty of this Earth.
I will do my bit from where I am.

[ ENG ] I am a freelance photographer and theorist based in Hamburg, Germany. PhotoVisionProject is an exploration in the field of art of photography. I understand photography not as a technique to duplicate reality but as a creative process of investigation, exploration and visualization of people in their cultural surroundings.
My main photographic focus points are: Urban Space and Architecture, History, Ruins and Decay, Portraits, Identity and Storytelling. I am specialized in 360 Panoramas, VR ( Virtual Reality ), 3D modeling ( Photogrammetry ) and I am doing some video work.
I do commissioned and commercial work in architecture, panoramic and VR photography and artist portrait photography ( contact me). My studio is situated in Hamburg, Wilhelmsburg.
Commercial work is generaly shot with a Nikon D800E and prime or specialized lenses ( portrait, macro, architecture ) in available or artificial light.
For my personal and artistic work I use various analog ( film ) cameras such as Linhof Master Technika, Hasselblad 501 CM, Plaubel Makina 67, Pentax 67, Zeiss Contax IIIa, Nikon FM2.
I speak English, German and Greek fluently and Russian sufficiently.
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.

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).
Cilicia and Mersin
Cilicia Region roughly extends from the Manavgat River, through the southern foothills of the Taurus Mountains, to the Amanus Mountains. According to the geological structure, Cilicia is divided into two as the Rugged Cilicia (Cilicia Trachaea) and the Flat Cilicia (Cilicia Pedias ). The border between the Rugged Cilicia and the Flat Cilicia was the Lamos at times and the Soli at others.
As it is known to those who toured around the area, there exist three gates that enable access to this land through a rugged course. The first of these is the Sertavul Pass, which is located to the north of Mut District. The second one is the Cilician Gate, which is known as the Gülek Pass and hosts a rock bearing the inscription “the Cilician Border”, and the last one is the Belen (Syria) Gate on the route to Hatay Province.
Surrounded by Gazipaşa District of Antalya Province to the west, the provinces of Konya, Karaman and Niğde to the north and the Mediterranean Sea to the east, Mersin was annexed to the land of Ottomans in 1516 during the reign of (Yavuz) Selim I. It was then ruled by Kavalalı Mehmet Ali Pasha for some time, but later Ottomans gained control of the area once again.
Mersin Province was founded in 1924. Districts of Silifke, Anamur, Gülnar and Mut were annexed to Mersin Province, and the Province was renamed as ‘İçel’. It is thought that the long-used “İçel” name derived from the name given to the site by Turkish people who settled in the areas located on either side of Göksu River during the 12th century, or has actually transformed from “Uç-il/ Uç-el” denomination used by Anatolian Seljuk Sultanate for this “Uç ülke, uç diyar (literally: the frontier land)” located beyond the Taurus Mountains. Erdemli district was founded in 1954; then followed Aydıncık District (1987), Bozyazı and Çamlıyayla Districts (1989). In 2001, the name ‘İçel’ was, once again, replaced by “Mersin” due to intensive pressure from the citizens. Having a Metropolitan City status, Mersin is divided into four central districts, namely Akdeniz, Toroslar, Mezitli and Yenişehir. Including Tarsus District, Mersin has 13 districts in total.
It was revealed in the excavations performed in Yumruktepe site that the history of Mersin dates back to 7000 BC. The settlement found on the northwestern part of the current City center flourished around 7000 BC, and continued to exist expanding even larger.
Zephyrion, which is perceived as the antique settlement of Mersin, is localized somewhere between the Governor’s Residence and the Orthodox Church. Archeological findings gathered especially during the salvage excavations performed in the New Cultural Center constructed here and in the Old Public House garden, and the Kuros statute, which was excavated from the same area and displayed in Mersin Museum, are attributed to the Antique City of Zephyrion. The city, which was referred to as a ‘Polis’ during the Hellenistic Period and the Persian Period (and in later periods, as Hadrianapolis), was captured by Shapur I in 260 AD. While it was among the cities of Cilica I Region during the Byzantine Empire Period, it transformed into a prominent port city in the first quarter of the 19th century.
There are numerous opinions and myths about the roots of the name “Mersin”. The most widely-known one derives from the ‘Myrtus-Murt-Myrtle’ tree, the yield of the Mediterranean Climate, which is called “hambales” by Arabs. According to another opinion, the name Mersin is inherited from the Mersin Tribe, which was one of the Turkmen tribes in history. In his Seyahatname (literally: ‘Book of Travel’), Evliya Celebi notes that he stayed in a village called “Mersinoğlu”, which is located on the northwestern part of the present-day Mersin.
The Myth is as follows:
The name Mersin came from the princess Myrna, daughter of the Cypriot King. Gods pitying Myrna, who had been cursed by the goddess Aphrodite, brought her ashore to Mersin. The place was named as Mersin because of that incident.
Le immagini presentate sono il racconto delle mie esperienze nel campo fotografico. La fotografia ha la capacità di trasportare tutti noi ovunque l’essere umano è riuscito a portare con se una macchina fotografica o qualsiasi altro oggetto da ripresa. Ci regala sensazioni uniche che ciascuno rivive a suo modo. Non sono un fotografo professionista, nel senso che non scatto foto per professione ma per passione; ho iniziato per gioco questo viaggio e per gioco continuo a sperimentare. Raccontare una storia tramite immagini va ben oltre il semplice scatto fotografico; immortalare un momento che forse diverrà eterno è una dote che richiede molta pazienza. Ciò che ha sempre attirato la mia attenzione sono le persone, il loro modo di essere, di rapportarsi con gli altri e con il loro mondo e, soprattutto i piccoli frammenti di vita che riescono a raccontare con i loro gesti. Immortalare quei momenti è come fermare il tempo, è trattenere in uno scatto qualcosa che altrimenti andrebbe perduto. Riuscire a cogliere e rappresentare qualcosa di veramente intimo che non mi appartiene ma che trasmette uno stato d'animo mi ha sempre affascinato... La fotografia ha la capacità di isolare un gesto, un'azione, ed eliminando il superfluo riesce a cogliere l'emozione che è parte integrante di quell'unico istante. Da qualche tempo mi sto dedicando alla fotografia panoramica, cercando nella maniera più semplice e minimale possibile di trasmettere agli altri la sensazione di trovarsi realmente sul luogo e riuscire a farlo attraverso quello che hanno visto i miei occhi è una grande soddisfazione.
The images presented here are the story of my experiences in the field of photography. Photography has the ability to carry each of us wherever it is possible for a human being to carry a camera or anything else for shooting pictures. It gives us a unique experience that everyone can appreciate in his own way. I'm not a professional photographer in that I do not take pictures because of a profession, but rather because for me it is a passion; it is a pleasure trip, and I continue to play with photography purely for the experience. When a person can tell a story through images it goes far beyond a simple depiction; to capture a moment that in a sense becomes eternal is a skill that requires a lot of practice and patience. What has always caught my attention are the people: their way of life, their relationships with others and their world, and above all, the small fragments of their lives expressed through their gestures. To capture these moments is like stopping time; there is the power to hold in one click something that would otherwise be forever lost. This ability to capture and preserve something that is not mine, but is very intimate and conveys a mood has always fascinated me ... photography has the ability to isolate a moment, a gesture, an action - and eliminate the superfluous - capturing the emotion that is an integral part of that one moment. Recently I have been dedicated to exploring panoramic photography, searching for a simple way to convey to others the feeling of being truly on the site. It gives me great satisfaction to be able to allow others to see things in the same way I saw them with my own eyes.

Karol Makurat in the Internet known as Tarakum. In the real world rather unknown. I finished economic technical school with big pain, because I knew that it is unnecessary to me, I wanted to go to school on the direction related to data processing and computer graphics. These times is bad and I'm in a new way to improve your skills. This journey began long ago (around 2005) when I was in favor to people borrowing equipment from them for a short period for the implementation of a session. August month is 2012 began with happiness in my hands, came first own the Nikon D80, which hunted for some time. But wallet is always empty.
Using someone hardware have done about 20 photo sessions once in a greater time. In the free time I played with computer, graphics, Virtual Tuning, computer graphics, and visited every good metal/punk concerts to around of my city.
I interested in metal and punk music. A bit of traveling after the concerts in Poland, if someone wants to meet me, drink some cheap wine, beer or other alcohol on a good concert, I invite you to my profile on Last.fm.
In photography,I looking for what in music, pleasure, often dark, climate, commitment, something that makes you think about the photo. Anyway I hate senseless comments are unjustified by any arguments.
I try to be nice to people, but not always I can. Sometimes our beloved genre scares me so much that I want to sit down under the church, take a piece of paper with the words together like this comic "I Collect to the bomb who the Fu*K this Shi* Which is all to smithereens"

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

I'm a passionate photography amateur since the '70s, when I started shooting slides with a fully manual Olympus OM-1n reflex camera and a small set of lenses. Now, decades later, digital photography has replaced all that analog stuff, but my interest is still strong: I'm now attracted by 360° panoramas, to me a challenging technique that involves both traditional shooting skills as well as computer post-processing and web technology knowledge. A real "digital craftmanship"!
I'm fascinated by this new media, that gives the user a strong feeling to really be inside the scene.
After the first 360° images I'm publishing, taken in my home town after following lots of tutorials found on the web and much learning from direct field experiments, I'd like to try other panoramas where I live (Milan), a city with lots of photographic opportunities.
But I'd like to introduce something original as well... as soon as I'll get enough experience I hope to start publishing my ideas and proposals on this topic.
I was born on 31st August 1959 in Finale Ligure. In my opinion the photographer is “who can find that small and hidden particular or detail (part of that universality we observe) that we don’t catch and communicate it through his eyes and works”.
I like to quote a beautiful thought of the French photographer Edoard Boubat (1923-1999): “You can’t become a photographer. You must live this work everyday, hour after hour, seizing the moment. The thousandth of second. Everything changes. Every moment. Only a step forward or back can damage the most perfect picture”.
My photos have been published in magazines, newspapers, national and international headlines like 24 Karati, Business People, Archeo etc. . I am partner as creative photographer of the National Association of Professional Photographers in Milano.
I am specialized in different genres: Advertising and Business Photography, Portrait, Ceremony, Landscape, Food and Still life, Stage Photography, Beauty, Real estate, Architectural and Interior Photography.
Report at the Photography Prize, Milano 2008: “The photographic production of Rescigno tends to find a remarkable balance between customers demand and his personal research of technical growth in this field (Roberto Tomesani – President of the National Association of Professional Photographers).
I travelled in the USA and in other countries of the world.
In 2002 I was selected by the International Events of Milano to represent the Italian photography for the “Independence day”: four evenings dedicated to the USA to celebrate 4th July.
From 2005 to 2010 I had my experience as official photographer and I collaborated with a press office to document and show the main activities and events of the city of Finale Ligure. In different occasions mass media focused on me with regard to my exhibitions.
I have improved my experience in theatre photography and from 2006 for several years I was one of the stage photographers of “Teatro della Tosse” in Genoa. I also lent my work to important theatre directors such as Maximilian Nisi.
I am also specialized in architectural photography and I challenged me in shots of big spaces with sophisticated techniques.
From 20 February to 20 March 2009 at Palazzo Ducale in Genoa, the “International Poetry Room” housed my exhibition “Immagini e parole” (pictures and words) after the collaboration with the famous Roman poet Antonella Pedicelli.
From 4 April to 11 May 2009 I held my exhibition “MASKS” about the charm and magic of Venice masks.
From 6 to 12 September 2009 I did a picture story on behalf of UNITALSI LIGURE. An extraordinary experience from the human and professional point of view. And then its exhibition “Pellegrinaggio a Lourdes”, with the support of the Department of Education Sciences and Training Processes of the University of Turin, supported by the department UNITALSI of Finale and housed by the exhibition room of the Archeological Museum in Finale.
Since 29 April 2010 I have held the exhibition “Dubai e dintorni”, a choice of my photos from my picture story in the Persian Gulf.
I have had the chance to photograph big figures of the society such as: Eva Herzigova, Oliviero Toscani, Gino Paoli, Markus Stockhausen, Eleonora Giorgi, Irene Grandi, Renato Zero, and famous models, Marguerite Guerin (first etoile comedienne in Paris) and Larisa Romanova. I photographed different bands.
I was coauthor of the book “Finale in Famiglia”, publishing house De Ferrari of Genoa.
On 29 May I inaugurated my exhibition “Sherazade” about the teachers and their students of the belly dance school, directed by Marta Vicini.
On 31 October 2010 I went to Nepal with the guide Carlo Mamberto and I did a picture story. The most part of these photos constitute my current exhibition “Namaste”, Nepal: from the Annapurna Circuit to the Chitwan Jungle; I opened it at the Oratory of the Disciplinanti in Finale Ligure and later in Genoa (in September, in the International Poetry Room of Palazzo Ducale) and in other towns.
In May 2012 I realized 8 big panels with Luca Forno and they have been used for conventions about Alzheimer. The pictures are inspired by the Horticultural Therapy conducted by the doctors of Galliera Hospital in Genoa under Prof. Ernesto Palummeri and cooperative’s charge. The exhibition’s supervisor was Marco Riolfo.
“I love thinking there is something magic in photography. I can have the power to stop every single moment and the time forever”.
I am passionate about 360 panoramic photography, specializing in capturing high-quality, immersive images that allow viewers to immerse themselves in stunning visual worlds. With over [insert number] years of experience in the field, I have developed a unique and creative approach to capturing panoramic images that captivate the audience and create an immersive visual experience.
My style of photography is based on a combination of technique, creativity and artistic vision. I use state-of-the-art equipment and specialized software to capture and process panoramic images with the highest resolution and detail. In addition, I experiment with different compositing and editing techniques to create stunning and unique panoramic images.
My main focus is 360 panoramic photography, which allows me to capture images in 360 degrees, meaning that viewers can explore and experience the entire scene, from every possible angle. This allows for an immersive and unique experience for viewers, as they can immerse themselves in the details and beauty of the scene as if they were there in person.
I have had the opportunity to work in a variety of environments, from natural landscapes to urban architecture, special events and adventure travel. My ability to capture the essence of each place and moment in a panoramic image has allowed me to create visually stunning works of art that convey emotion and tell stories.
In addition to my technical and artistic expertise, I also value collaboration with my clients and work closely with them to understand their needs and visions. I strive to exceed their expectations and deliver high quality panoramic images that meet their goals and requirements.
As a 360 panoramic photographer, I am dedicated to capturing panoramic images that surprise and captivate the audience, creating an immersive and unique visual experience. My passion for 360 panoramic photography, my technical and artistic expertise, as well as my commitment to collaboration with my clients, make me an ideal choice for those seeking high quality, visually impactful panoramic images. I am excited to continue exploring new techniques and challenges in the field of 360 panoramic photography and share my artistic vision with the world.
