For the first time in the past 15 years, the Taj Mahal has been shot from the air by the AirPano crew!

The Taj Mahal holds one of the most important places in the list of "The New 7 Wonders of the World". 

Despite its Muslim origin, this white marble Necropolis has actually become a symbol of India. Serious safety measures are taken in order to preserve it. The 500 meters area around the complex is equipped to serve as a special protection zone.

Cars have to park 2 kilometers away from the entrance so the tourists can get there with rickshaws, carts or electric vehicles, as it is believed that the exhaust gases can make the marble cladding go yellow. Even on the other side of the river Yamuna, on the banks of which it is located, the area is protected with a barbed wire fence.

Security guards' numbers are in their hundreds.

In 1997, the famous Frenchman Bertrand took a picture of the Taj Mahal from a helicopter. For 15 years after that there was no permission granted to shoot the monument from above. But AirPano has managed to achieve the impossible: we have received this permission, and at this moment our photographers Dmitry Moiseenko and Stanislav Sedov are on their way back to Moscow with the footage. A virtual tour of the photo-shoot will appear on the website in May.

The International Landscape Photographer of the Year 2019

The winners of the The International Landscape Photographer of the Year 2019 contest were  announced yesterday. Sergey Semenov’s photo “Northern Lights on Barents Sea” has become one of the 100 best landscapes of 2019!

Theatre Day. Virtual 360-tour to four Russian theatres

2019 has been declared the year of Theatre in Russia, so TASS News Agency has launched a special project "Theatre Day. Virtual 360-tour to four Russian theatres". We are glad to participate in this project and introduce the first virtual tour to Russian State Academic Drama Theatre named after Fyodor Volkov in Yaroslavl. It is the place where Russian professional theatre was born in 1750. We managed not only to visit Russia's oldest theatre but also capture the teamwork: see all behind-the-scene things and dressing rooms, visit rehearsals, witnessed the stage scenery installation and, of course, enjoy the excellent performance of "The Seagull"!

Filming this kind of projects requires specific equipment and facilities, so we needed to have several shooting spots and an extra camera, for which we want to thank our partners Insta360Insta360 Pro2 cameras have proved to be reliable in both theatrical performances and the cold at the altitude of 3,500 meters... But that's a story about our different project that we will uncover soon!

For more details go to the TASS website (and watch a 360° video).

AirPano and Insta360

Our cooperation with Insta360 company continues. During our October trip to China we've received the Insta Pro 2InstaOne X, the FarSight transmitter kit and the StateFlow stabilization system.

The updated Insta Pro 2 model will help us shoot 360° stereo videos in 8K resolution, and 360° mono videos in 8K with 60 fps. Insta One X is the most compact option for shooting 360° videos in 5,7K resolution and that gives us the possibility to work in the most difficult and extreme conditions, where it is better not to risk losing or damaging professional equipment.

By using the FarSight set we will be able to see on-line what the camera is capturing, even when it is on the drone up in the sky. The StateFlow stabilization system will help us get smooth pictures even when the drone makes fast maneuvers, or when there is strong wind.

Mount Everest has been photographed from record height

Our photographer Ivan Roslyakov went up to 7100 meters (23294 feet) in a helicopter. This is an absolute record for rescue helicopters in Nepal. In order to make the flight, a pilot even sacrificed Ivan's oxygen tank. Despite the life-threatening conditions, the photographer managed to shoot several aerial panoramas of Mount Everest from unique angles.

For the first time in the past 15 years, the Taj Mahal has been shot from the air by the AirPano crew!

The Taj Mahal holds one of the most important places in the list of "The New 7 Wonders of the World". 

Despite its Muslim origin, this white marble Necropolis has actually become a symbol of India. Serious safety measures are taken in order to preserve it. The 500 meters area around the complex is equipped to serve as a special protection zone.

Cars have to park 2 kilometers away from the entrance so the tourists can get there with rickshaws, carts or electric vehicles, as it is believed that the exhaust gases can make the marble cladding go yellow. Even on the other side of the river Yamuna, on the banks of which it is located, the area is protected with a barbed wire fence.

Security guards' numbers are in their hundreds.

In 1997, the famous Frenchman Bertrand took a picture of the Taj Mahal from a helicopter. For 15 years after that there was no permission granted to shoot the monument from above. But AirPano has managed to achieve the impossible: we have received this permission, and at this moment our photographers Dmitry Moiseenko and Stanislav Sedov are on their way back to Moscow with the footage. A virtual tour of the photo-shoot will appear on the website in May.
