Panoramic Photography by Brad Templeton

Since 1997 I have been shooting computer-stitched panoramic landscapes. These are made by taking a series of overlapping shots and using special software to join and blend them together seamlessly. You can shoot anything from high-res non-distorted wide-angle shots to full 360 degree wrap arounds, and even spherical full views.

I have shot literally thousands of these, and here are hundreds of my favourites from around the world. I have printed them up to 32 feet long for display on giant walls, and they are hanging in offices, a museum, a bar and even were exhibited in an art gallery in France. Digitally there are three ways to view them on this site:

  1. For most, go fullscreen on a large display, ideally a 4K display. If you have a 4K TV you can usually hook up your laptop to it, or even "cast" your laptop to it. Failing that, an HD display. Just browse the galleries above.
  2. They can also be viewed in any WebVR Headset, like the Oculus. VR works best on the ones with a tall and wide field of view. You don't get the super high resolution (though you can zoom in using the VR if you like it but it's not as nice as on a big display.) Read the VR Guide.
  3. With a tablet (or failing that a phone) you can go into compass mode, and then you can hold out the tablet and move it around to see in all directions. You can zoom with pinch.

In a few cases, I have "rest of" pages with lesser panoramas that are not of top quality but still interesting.

The site, especially the VR menus, are under construction.

See the top of page for links to the various panorama pages and other pages. For completness, other, older panoramas of more amateur quality are also available for viewing.

Pictures are also always available from 800 to 1100 pixels high for direct browser viewing, and can be scaled to smaller sizes for small screens if you can't handle the Zoom viewer. Some images are not in the Zoom viewer.

In the Zoom viewer, I recommend you immediately select the FullScreen button. You can use the controls in the lower left to browse through the VR tour you are on.
