EVEREST 60 YEAR ANNIVERSARY
10 years ago at the 50 year anniversary for the first who reached the top of Everest, I published the only existing 360 panorama from the top of Mount Everest.
May 29 1953 The top of Mount Everest was reached for the first time by Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay. On May 24, 1989 the Australian photographer and mountaineer Roderick Mackenzie reached the summit. He was no 271 since 1953. The panorama he made is still the only 360 degree panorama made from the summit.
During the 10 years it has been seen by more than 7.000.000 people, and it has until very recently been one of the top 5 in Google when searching for Mount Everest.

Next week the Brigham Young University's Museum of Art in Utah US opens an exhibition with paintings by the Danish 19th century painter Carl Bloch. I was commissioned by the Brigham Young museum to photograph panoramas from all the Danish and Swedish churches where Carl Bloch's altar paintings are found.
One of the locations i shot was the Kings Oratory (Kongens Bedekammer) at Frederiksborg Castle. To be able to show all paintings in the panorama I had to remove the silver altar you see above but as it could not be moved I had to do a Photo manipulation in Photoshop.
View the panorama before and after and read how it was done. Read More
