(Linz, June 10, 2014) Photographer Jeffrey Martin will show all the amazing things you can do with a digital camera, a 400mm lens and a fully automatic pan-tilt tripod head at the next Deep Space LIVE on Thursday, June 12th. On Deep Space’s 16×9-meter display, the founder of the 360cities.net online collection of panoramic photography will present shots of London, Ljubljana, Prague and Tokyo, and offer interesting insights into how he works.
Jeffrey Martin was born in Chicago and grew up in Germany, Great Britain and the USA. He and his family now live in Prague. Martin took his first panoramic photographs in 2000 for the prague360.com website. He and his brother David quickly decided to take 360° shots of other cities too. In addition to his passion for panoramas, the founder of 360Cities.com is also interested in time-lapse video and experimental aspects of photography.
