quickshot mast reaching new heights 

 

Agorfa DM are proud to sponser Herman Desmet’s 360 panoramic  project.  Herman is reaching new heights with his photography project in creating images from Brussels skyline from a whole different angle. All the panoramic images are taken from rooftops, towers and viewpoints which are not accessible by the public.

Herman, a freelance photographer, required a portable mast system to enable him to see over obstacles on the top of the buildings.

 

 

 

 

Herman’s most recent 360 panorama is taken from the Belgacom Twin Towers, which is simply a stunning and unique panorama.
