He will be missed!

Swedish photographer living in Denmark since 1967. Commercial Photographer since 1966
Photographer at Scan-Ad advertising agency from 1967-78, Started my own business in 1978
Working with digital photography since 1995.
In 1999 I started working with VR photography as a possible way of expanding future clients.

As I was not at all impressed by the small sizes used for QTVR presentation at that time I made experiments with showing Quicktime VR as full screen in browser. The solution I found is today used all over the world.

My Virtual Denmark site was used as a test site and in 2002 I started panoramas.dk which every week presents a full screen qtvr from somewhere in the world made by well known VR Photographers.

The site is known all over the world and with a traffic around 280.000 visits a month it is one of the most popular photosites on the web.
Full Screen QTVR "the Nyberg way" is today used by VR photographers all over the world.
