Russian Photographers Show How Birds See Our World

Published by:

If you dream of travelling the world and seeing it all from a bird’s-eye view, these sweeping, epic panoramic photos by AirPano might be one of the best ways to do it. This team of Russian photographers and specialists travels the world to take stunning aerial photos of the world’s most beautiful locations.

“Although we usually photograph from a helicopter, we also like to shoot from an airplane, a dirigible, a hot air balloon, and a radio-controlled helicopter,” they write. The most interesting thing about their approach, however, is the fully 360-degree displays that they make available on their websites. Using AirPano’s special viewer, visitors can pan around and look in every direction, making them feel like they’re really on location.
