I have been trained and certified by Google to supply Google Business Photos for Hull, Yorkshire and North Lincolnshire
Google Business Photos & Virtual Tours is an exciting new online marketing initiative using the same technology as Google StreetView. It allows customers who find you on Google to take a fully interactive, 360° virtual 'walk-through' of your business - just like being there!
Your business will visually stand out with enhanced Google search results, Google Maps, Places and the new 'Google+' pages. Your Virtual Tour can also be embedded into your business Website, Blog and Facebook page with links easily sent via Twitter etc.
Google Business Photos package also includes up to 15 'point of interest' professionally shot still images to showcase all the key features that make your business special - Including:
- Exterior & interior decor photos
- Products your Business provides
- Services your Business provides

It doesn’t matter whether you run a retail store, hotel, bar, restaurant, gym, flower shop, car showroom, live venue, art gallery, museum, modern office or manufacturing company - just about any business that welcomes clients through its doors can benefit from this engaging business marketing tool.
Your business is most likely already on Google Places - if not, registration is free and takes just a few minutes of your time.
Get in touch and I can answer any further questions you may have and then we can arrange a convenient time for me to visit your business.
Ater the shoot I handle the rest and within days the 360° virtual tour and images of your business will be available for potential customers to see.
Your online business listings will be enhanced
The finished product and images is like an invitation from Google to 'See Inside' and will appear in Google search results, Google Maps and the new, Google+ Local too.
These search results will look more inviting, colourful and informative, allowing your customers to really engage with and explore your business via the interactive, 'walk-through' experience.
I'm a premier level and fully accredited Trusted Photographer
I have the ability to shoot 'multi-floor' which enables even the largest of premises to be viewed in the click of a button - These areas can also be dressed for multi functionality, such as wedding and conference events etc.
Real world examples where Google Business Photos is already engaging with future customers are:
Depending on the size of the business, but around one to one and a half hours is needed to complete the panoramic photography and the point of interest still images.
No, it's business as usual.
The equipment used is basically one tripod and a camera, therefore a discreet operation is ensured with little or no no interruptions to daily business or your customers. For privacy, Google's software blurs out any faces that may appear in photograph's too, so ultimate discretion is guaranteed.
I'd recommend your quieter business hours are usually the best times to shoot.
It's best for online visitors to view your virtual tour and see the true size and layout of your business.
Obviously, they'll expect it to be a 'living, breathing' business too so customers here and there will not be unexpected or seem unusual.
Google only license the images and the one's used to construct your virtual tour from you. I, as the photographer also pass over complete ownership in perpetuity to you, the business owner also.
Yes, no problem
You can easily use a simple embedding code and insert your business virtual tour directly into your website or blog, plus its can be posted to Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn etc.
Your 'point of interest' still images can also be downloaded and used for any marketing purpose you wish.
On average 3 working days
From the day of your shoot, it takes an average of 3 working days for the virtual tour and images to be processed, uploaded, then quality checked/published by Google.
Prices start at £300 for small businesses and rise to around £500+ for larger venues.
For very large, multi-floored businesses, prices will be quoted on a per-job basis.
