Hi! My name is Martin Edström, and I'm a National Geographic Explorer and photographer using immersive technology like 3D, VR and AR to tell important stories in new digital ways.
Me and my team just made a 3D-model from Stonehenge in England that you can try for yourself as an AR-filter on the @natgeo instagram. I've also made a virtual tour of Son Doong, the largest cave in the world and we filmed the first 360-video from a pride of wild lions for National Geographic in the past. In 2019, we made a VR series about the NatGeo and Rolex Everest Expedition and one about Plastic on the Ganges. Right now I'm very excited about all things 3D, like with our latest story from Stonehenge and our ongoing project about 3D-scanning large landscapes in Kyrgyzstan to find new caves.
With me on the AMA is also Carl-Fredrik Zell from my team at IVAR Studios who was a big part of the Stonhenge post-production workflow, to help answer in-depth questions about 3D. Read more about me on www.martinedstrom.com and follow me on instagram @martinedstrom.
