We provide Google tours under the Google Street View | Trusted Photography program, formerly known as Google Business View Photography.

 

Google Business View Photography is a combination of high-quality 360-degree panoramas and still images called point-of-interest photos to create a virtual tour of the inside of a business. The images are linked to Google Street View and appear in Google’s search results, Google Maps, and Google+. This imagery gives each business the visual attention it deserves enhancing their presence on Google and the web. It engages customers who can now walk-through and experience a business with the familiar Street View navigation influencing their decision making. Google Business View images can only be taken and uploaded by Google Trusted Independent Photographers (GTIP). You can learn more about Google Business View Photography on Google’s website here and by checking out the videos below.

Contact Starloft Photo & Video today to learn more about Google Business View Photography and to schedule your shoot. Shoots start at $500.

Step 3: Panoramas & Point-of-Interest (POI) Photos

We will work with you to determine the number of 360-degree panoramas and POI photos that your business requires. Google requires a minimum of 3 (2 exterior and 1 interior) panoramas and 10 POI photos. POI photos help convey additional business information, such as signage, credit cards accepted, ratings from Zagat and others, menus, and more. The panoramas and POI photos are edited and uploaded by the photographer to your Google+ Local page. The panoramas can also be embedded elsewhere on the internet including your website and facebook, like the example above.
