Panorama 365 Logo

The idea and inspiration to do a 365 day photo project came from several different places. I read an interview on Chase Jarvis's website about a young photographer who did his own year-long project. The progression of his creative growth, the increasing quality of his images, and the concepts he executed matured greatly throughout that year. At that point I knew I had to do my own project. It would allow me to push myself to improve my photography skills and take more risks with my work on a daily basis. I also had a long suppressed desire to interact and collaborate more with other people and experiment with setting up scenes and situations. When participants and ideas are not readily available, I will however need to resort to what I do best – find the hidden beauty in the seemingly ordinary details that I come across every day.

The idea for the panoramas came from an assignment in a portrait class I attended at the International Center for Photography in New York City. One of my classmates and I went to a park and I asked her to stand in different spots. When I stitched the photos together, I liked the effect and realized that the combination of the photos had a unique quality. I also like the extended view that you get with a much wider photo. When I got the idea to do a 365 project, I decided to make it interesting and combine the two ideas. Most of the panorams are made up of 5-12 regular images.

I look forward to the adventure and challenges ahead. You can also follow my daily iPhone photography at and also on Instagram @scottdavidgordon.

This project was started on October 1, 2012.
