360 NEO

As a photojournalist, I recognized the need to capture a 360 degree perspective of the world from on top of the Earth - at the peak of the Great Pyramid, in Egypt. While any view in any direction was spectacular, it was the unobstructed 360 degree panorama that was truly breathtaking. The way I captured that experience then, and have 1,000s of times since, was in a series of snapshots I compose into collages, and have featured extensively as headers on REALNEO. This technique creates stunning photographs that may exceed 20 feet in length, at very high resolutions.

Obviously, a way to capture a similar feel is with high quality film or video, by panning a camera 360 degrees while filming.

That is what is done to capture the videos featured here, in 360 NEO.

All images are captured in high definition, using a professional stand, and recorded for time, date, location and conditions for archival and production use.

Please let me know if there are locations in real NEO from where you would like to see such a panorama captured, and I'll do my best to share them with the community.

Enjoy the videos linked below, also found on my YouTube Channel here.
