About George Row
I’ve been a computer programmer in the telecoms industry, a computer science academic, an online-media producer, but I have always been a Photographer – at present I am specialising in Panoramic Photography.
What I like about panoramic photography is that after almost a decade of composing panoramic images I am still learning about it!
Originally my 360° panoramas were only accessible as immersive virtual reality images on the computer. Over the last few years I have been experimenting with ways of making prints of those panoramas.
Having tried a few methods the “stereographic projection” has proved to be the most effective. It typically turns the immersive panorama into a “little planet “ as if the horizon in a landscape was the edge of a globe. I also sometimes make images from the panoramas that look like a conventional photograph but may actually take in more than 180° of the view.
I am based in Derry in Northern Ireland and many of my early panoramic images were of that town and the surrounding area. My website veryderry.com provides the visitor with a virtual tour of the city.
I have a huge collection of panoramic images from throughout Ireland that I have shot over the last few years. While my initial gallery here was of panoramas of Derry, as I have worked through my backlog of photography I have been adding to my collection here, panoramic images from throughout Ireland in general.
My Ness Glen panorama turned out to be something that the Judges at the SoJIE-10 Earth-Day exhibition liked! :-)

While I was uploading the wild flower photographs in preparation for the calendar I researched the captions and added the flowers to the group Wild Flowers of the World and as a result the kind folk who run that group made me a Forever-Featured member.
I have been made a featured member of a total of eleven RedBubble groups:
| Through the eye of the Lens |
|This and That|
Around The World
|Circles of the World|
