Geographer, teacher and author, living and working in the south west of the UK. In my spare time I'm a climber, surfer and mountain-biker, and keen landscape photographer.
I'm interested in the way that panoramas are used in the classroom and I aim to use 360 Cities to create a bank of images to support geography teaching. I would consider taking on commissioned projects as well.
I do some web stuff and panoramas for fun and might start to put musical soundscapes to them when I get the motivation. I play keyboards and compose a bit .. up a mountain .. with just the stream and the birdsong to accompany .. jazz and blues mostly. I have one son Michael, grandsons Jake and Lucas, Dad in Guildford UK, 4 brothers in the UK and 2 sisters - one living in Guildford and one out in Wisconsin. My wife is a retired Head-teacher (a.k.a. school principal). We share our time between the UK Brixham and to escape our compatriots to Český Jiřetín which is on the Czech/German Border we heard they gossip about us a lot but since we cannot understand much Czech it suits us just fine.
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.

Visitors are able to enjoy extreme leisure activities such as paragliding, water sports, bungee jumping, golf and mountain bike.
I'm Stefan Jaro and I'm an avid mountain climbing and hiking enthusiast.
I absolutely love nature and breathtaking natural views undisturbed by civilization.
Occassionally, if I don't forget, I'll take pictures and panoramas of my travels. But I usually get lost in the scenary and tend to forget about technology for a while.
I hope you enjoy my pictures!
Matthias Taugwalder: photographer, computer expert and mountaineer
Matthias Taugwalder grew up in Zermatt (Switzerland). After spending his childhood in the mountains, he studied Business Informatics at the University of Zürich. He is a direct descendant of the mountaineers Peter Taugwalder and Son, who experienced the drama of the first ascent of the Matterhorn with Edward Whymper on 14th July 1865. The family tradition is obligatory, it is a matter of honour for him to take his panoramic shots by climbing the ascents and doing without helicopter services.
Taugwalder is a passionate panoramic photographer. The focus of his photographic creativity is the Alps and the surrounding area. By capturing the structures, forms and aura of the mountain landscape as realistically as possible, he meets documentary standards. In addition, as a computer expert, he makes full use of the opportunities offered by electronics.
Alongside his freelance activities, Matthias Taugwalder runs his own company, Concept360. As the company’s owner, he offers a whole range of services in the field of photography and information services. Clients include companies, advertising agencies, museums and publishing houses.
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've been a keen 360 photographer for over 10 years, focusing on nature, mountains, and historical landmarks.
My mountain panoramas were taken for my virtual tour site, www.virtualmountains.co.uk
I am also available to hire for creating virtual tours for business at www.purplevr.co.uk.
Major interests in my lifetime have been: 1. a study of learning, especially in outdoor environments; 2. an understanding of the concepts of "the commons" and "common adventure;" 3. the creative process of photography and multimedia communication; and 4. the collaborative opportunities made available on the Internet via the WWW, especially with Social Networking and Web 2.0, Web 3.0 and GeoWeb concepts.
Diarna, “Our Homes” in Judeo-Arabic, is the flagship initiative of Digital Heritage Mapping, Inc., a 501(c)(3) non-profit specializing in digitally preserving historic and cultural sites worldwide. The project pioneers the use of digital mapping technologies to explore the unfolding of Jewish history in the Middle East and North Africa through the prism of physical location by digitizing individual sites (schools, cemeteries, synagogues, shrines) and memories.
Anyone with an Internet connection can use Diarna to travel across the region as if on eagles' wings, unaffected by political and inter-religious strife below. Previously unknown or difficult to visit sites are now "visitble" via Diarna's weaving and synthesizing of satellite imagery, immersive panoramas, three-dimensional architectural models, archival and contemporary photography, scholarship, and oral history recordings.
Dirven by a team with diverse background and outlooks--including young Muslims eager to discover their shared history--Diarna has been: featured as a resource for scholars in the "Encyclopedia of Jews in the Islamic World" (Brill Publications, 2010); recognized as one of the 50 most innovative Jewish projects in North America by the Slingshot Fund (2009-2010); the subject of a panel at the Association of Jewish Studies' 42nd Conference; profiled in Haaretz (http://goo.gl/2N9VZ); and is partnered with Wellesley College, the Alliance Israélite Universelle, Beit Hatfutsot: The Museum of the Jewish People, and the Yad Ben-Zvi Institute.
The immersive panos published here are an advance preview of The Diarna Project's D'fina exhibit (http://www.JewishMorocco.org), dedicated to uncovering the "buried" or "covered" Jewish treasures of Morocco.
Spanning the entire country, from metropolitan centers to remote villages, D’fina proffers a virtual passport to visitors wishing to explore mountain-top shrines of Jewish “saints” that continue to be voluntarily protected by Muslim caretakers, scorpion-guarded genizot (burial grounds for holy texts and objects), anthropomorphic tombstones in seaside cemeteries, synagogues on the edge of the Sahara Desert, and ancient urban quarters with hidden reminders of their one-time residents. This exhibit marks the first public showing of documentation on the majority of these sites, including several Vichy regime desert labor and “discipline” camps where hundreds of Jews and non-Jewish political prisoners toiled, suffered torture, and died during the Holocaust.
