Andrew Bodrov

Andrew Bodrov, from Estonia, is a member of the International Virtual Reality Photography Association (IVRPA), and has been professionally engaged in panoramic photography for over 13 years. He has shot panoramas for the 3D Tallinn Project (Estonia), Tallinn Song Festival (Estonia), Cathedral of Christ the Savior in Moscow (Russia), Baikonur Cosmodrome (Russia) as well as hundreds of other panoramas from around the world.

Short presentation about me:

Some of my projects: - 3D Tallinn - Roscosmos, Baikonur Cosmodrome - The Cathedral of Christ the Savior, Moscow - Victory Day parade on Red Square, Moscow

In August 2012 I stitched panoramas from NASA's Curiosity rover photos. First one got more than 1,500,000 views after first week:

Second was hi-resolution color panorama of 30000x15000 pixels:

In February 2013 I stitch new panorama from Mars: Curiosity Rover's Self Portrait at "John Klein" Drilling Site,56.26,31.1

Presentation of the first Estonia's satellite ESTCube-1 in January 2013:

In October 2012 I second time was in Baikonur Cosmodrome and shoot panoramas of launch of rocket Proton-M with the a U.S. telecoms satellite Intelsat-23: (very impressive view) - small incident with my camera ;) - photo album

At the same time  members of the crew 33/34 long expedition to the ISS arrived to the Baikonur:,21.49,28.3

InSight's self-portrait as a virtual-reality panorama

December 19, 2018

Get the full VR experience at This panorama combines 10 exposures taken by InSight's Instrument Deployment Camera (IDC), located on the elbow of its robotic arm, during the Sol 10 of InSight's work on Mars (7 December 2018), its first full self-portrait. InSight took an additional 86 images of the landscape on Sol 14 (11 December 2018), filling in the full 360 degrees. Some parts of the panorama are retouched.

Curiosity's dirty deck, sol 1197

December 22, 2015

Curiosity took a Mastcam panorama of its own deck on sol 1197 (December 19, 2015). The deck shows interesting patterns of heavily dusty and windswept areas.

Curiosity Mastcam panorama, sol 1197, including rover deck

December 22, 2015

Curiosity took the photos for this panorama shortly after arriving at the lee face of Namib dune, on sol 1197 (December 19, 2015). For the first time since landing on Mars, the panorama taken by the rover's left Mastcam includes the entire deck of the rover, permitting a rover self-portrait. Since Mastcam is on the mast, the self-portrait does not include the rover mast, but, unlike previous self-portraits taken with the MAHLI camera, it does contain the arm. The deck was included to look for sand grains that may have been carried onto the deck of the rover from the sand dune. For a 360-degree virtual reality version of this panorama, visit Andrew Bodrov's 360cities page.
