Jook Leung is internationally recognized as an innovator in spherical panoramic photography. He specializes in creating unique and exceptional 360 degree panoramas. A mini portfolio of his artistry with spherical panoramas can be seen on the Adobe Photographers Website.

In describing his professional expertise, Jook says I'm quite passionate about crafting the kind of panoramic images that reveal a unique perspective while conveying a strong sense of intimacy with the subject. Here the viewer becomes fully immersed in the same moment in time the photogapher is trying to capture. This is what masterful photography is all about. New technologies like Apple Computer's QuickTime VR and Helmut Dersch's Panorama Tools have made it possible to construct, publish and view full 360° x 180° spherical images. For me, this is the ultimate panorama and is what I specialize in doing well.

For photographic excellence in the year 2002, Jook received his first Fujifilm Masterpiece Award from the IAPP for his 360 degree panorama: "Tribute In Light" in the Electronic Imaging category.
