I am originally from the suburbs of Detroit, USA. I have lived in Paris three times, I lived in London for 3 years where I completed a bachelors degree with honours, I have lived in Ireland for 7 years and I have most recently moved to Singapore. I always have my camera with me.
Dan Bailey is Professor of Visual Arts and the Director of the Imaging Research Center at UMBC, Baltimore, Maryland, USA.
His films and animations have received numerous national and international awards and have been included in the permanent collections of the Museum of Modern Art and the Georges Pompidou Center in Paris, France. His work has been screened at the Kennedy Center, Whitney Museum, and Museum of Modern Art, and has been broadcast on HBO and PBS.
For the last 12 years, Bailey has been the director of UMBC’s Imaging Research Center (IRC). Recognizing imaging as a process that is rooted in art and design, incorporates science and technology, and vividly describes ideas, the IRC is a recognized center for interdisciplinary collaboration among artists, researchers, industry partners, and students in creating technologically advanced media works that communicate to and resonate with the general public. The Center is dedicated to investigating new technologies and their use for interpreting and presenting content.
Bailey is also a second-generation fine art photographer and has been working with the panoramic image for most of his career.
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.

Born in Marocco in 1972, I grew up in France. I got my master degree in photography at Toulouse, late 1993 (ETPA school)
After my graduation, I moved to Paris, working for a well established professional photographic company (Studio COLLET : www.collet.fr), which is the first european digital studio. I have worked there and learn how to optimize the light for digital use in collaboration with the biggest parisian advertising agencies.
Early 2000, I moved to Tahiti - French Polynesia.
I stayed for 6 years on a little Island (Huahine) to feel the incredible natural light which bathing this part of the Pacific. In the meantime, I have developped a commercial Image Bank (www.tahiti-imagebank.com) to sell my pictures all over the world, especially for travel industry.
I'm now settled since 4 years in Papeete where I'm developping website for hospitality industry with 360° virtual tour concept interiors and architectural pictures. I am also french Polynesia official photographer for Starwood hotels - Sheraton, Luxury collection, St Regis.
I'm a computer scientist and I live near Paris. Shooting 360 panorama started as a hobby which is now remunerating.

I am a (mostly) amateur photographer lucky enough to travel often professionally. Whenever I'm travelling I'm bringing my tripod and camera along, so I can shoot panoramas. I plan to upload most of my non-profit panos here.
I also shoot panos professionally for corporations or institutions - sadly I'm not allowed to post them here for most of them. References include Nokia and BNP Paribas.
I started taking pictures and panoramas in 2005. My first setup was a Nikon D50, the NN3 pano head and the Sigma 10-20mm zoom. I've since upgraded to a Nikon D800E, the NN5 and the Nikkor 14-24 zoom, which is nowadays my main shooting gear. Along the way, I also owned a D3, which is an awesome camera. The D800E shoots more pixels, with a better dynamic range, but I long for the "built like a tank, never fails" feel of the D3.
In many of my panos I make a liberal use of HDR - I usually shoot several exposures (from 3 to 9), and decide at post-processing time whether or not to use HDR. With the D800E, and visibly better dynamic range, I only seldom have to resort to HDR, especially as tools got better too at extracting highlights and shadows from Raw files (LR4).
Software-wise, my workflow uses Lightroom, Photomatix where applicable, and a liberal pinch of Photoshop. DxO was a must to remove non-linear distorsions from the images coming out of the 14-24, until the same feature became available in Lightroom. To stitch images, I'm now using Autopano Pro, after several years of using Realviz Stitcher.
Photographer for several years, my journey begins with the pro press that the PQR (Regional Daily Press) as a correspondent. After training as a photojournalist to the CFD-EMI (école des métiers de l'information 7 / 9, rue des Petites Ecuries 75010 Paris), I multiply the wide range of subjects & deviens panoramique.
For more then 35 years now, I'm active in the photographic scene as a.... photographer.
In those years many advertising agencies and private clients were served with the most challenging and tempting photography. Despite the fact that I never like to do a job twice, I did Paris Dakar four times and that resulted in a lifetime addiction to the Sahara. Many trips after that were undertaken to this part of the world but since the unrest in that area I now have another passion: Making panorama's with the help of a mobile 20 meter tall mast. I do serve the area around Hungary since we moved to this part of Europe.
The reason for this move? It's new developing part of the European Union and knows many undiscovered places and histories.
Next to the panorama's we'r also still active as social engaged photographer and that way we also do work for NGO's the world allover.
