A team of Russian photographers have now been creating some of the most detailed panorama pictures┬áof the world’s most beautiful places.

AirPano, the team, is made up of nine photographers and three tech specialists who have eclectic backgrounds. Some are civil engineers, medical persons etc. They are currently travelling around the world, covering the major cities and natural marvels present in the cities.

The team basically shoots from helicopters, using a rig, specifically made for the shoot, which can hold 3-4 cameras that are arranged circularly. They also shoot from hot air balloons,┬ádrones, light jets or rooftops. Now isn’t this amazing?


1. It can be confusing at first, but this is actually the Arc de Triomphe in Paris,  photographed entirely from above


2. Downtown Manhattan, clicked from the Statue of Liberty


3. The Churun Meru(Dragon Fall) in Venezuela shot from a jet glider.


4. Dubai never ceases to impress, but this aerial shot of the skyline shows the city in an incredible new light.


5. The Great Barrier Reef is the world’s largest coral reef system composed of over 2,900 individual reefs and 900 islands stretching for over 1,615 miles.


6. For this panorama picture of the Mount Everest, photographer Ivan Roslyakov travelled to a record height of Everest at 23,294 feet.


7. The Singapore Flyer is the largest Ferris Wheel in the entire world. It is almost equivalent to a 42- storey building.


8. The Taj Mahal, the beauty of India and the significance of love, was shot for the first time from above in 15 years.


9. Santorini, the romantic city in Greece, was shot by the photographers from a hot aired balloon.


10. Concrete jungle lit up! A magical panoramic shot of Manhattan City Line at night, with the Empire State Building gleaming to the left and the Chrysler building towards the center.


The members of the AirPano team have abandoned their jobs to travel and photograph the world full time. Their goal is to show the planet Earth in a manner that nobody has ever seen it before. Now, isn’t this a really cool way to follow your passion?
