Photographer – 360 VR Content Creator

Christian Kleiman - Photographer, 360 VR Content Creator

My approach to photography started back in 2006 when I was testing new ways to offer something different to my clients.

At that time I was working as a skipper operating a parasailing power boat (video) at a Nautical Sports Centre. Own company that I was managing since 1995 (photos).

Many testings and try-outs where needed before I was able to launch my “Flying Camera”.  This original system I’ve build from scratch, was composed by a camera fixed on a radio controlled pan-tilt platform and was hanged on a small parachute that could lift all the equipment up in the air (photos).

Thanks to the aerodynamics of the parasail and my experience of flying people up in the air, and again after many try-outs, I was able to take Amazing Photography.

This episode lasted until 2010, when I decided that it was time to leave the water after 15 years of full dedication to my nautical career because I had experienced another exciting activity in my life;  “Aerial Photography”.

Inland, with dry pants, after finding out which options where available to take my photographic equipment up in the air, and after trying out many different platforms like; RC helicopter, Kites, Helium Ballon, Poles and Masts,  I decided that my best option was the 27 meters high pneumatic mast on the roof of a van (photos).

Next couple of years where very exciting until the market got severily hit by the crisis in the middle east coast of Spain, so I started to think in new attractive possibilities with the tools that I had.

This was how I started with 360 Panoramic Photography and the creation of Virtual Tours.

Currently, in New Zealand since 2014, I enjoy dedicating the best of my possibilities to the Art of Photography and the maintenance of my personal projects.
