Yes, you are welcome to request a reshoot. Just give us a call. Many businesses who have recently renovated their interiors or that have seasonal decor will request a reshoot.
Yes, we encourage you to share the walk-through experience of your business with your customers. This can be accomplished by embedding the tour in your site using some simple HTML code which will be provided to you once the tour is live on Google.
Because the unstitched and unreviewed images need considerable processing after they are uploaded , to produce the attractive ‘walk- through’ experience, you will not be able to review the images before they are uploaded to Google.
Because we want to keep the focus of the photos on the inside of your business, we aim to have as few people in the shots as possible. As the business owner it would be your responsibility to notify your employees and customers that the photo shoot is taking place.
We know you’re running a business, and that’s why we designed photo shoots to be as non-disruptive as possible. As a Trusted Photographer I work around your schedule to ensure that photos are taken at a convenient time for you and your business. Photo shoots do not require any sort of special equipment, lighting, or setup, so you are free to stay open. Although photo shoots are non-disruptive and should not interfere with your normal business operations, it’s a good idea to let your customers know photography is in process and to avoid being in view of the camera, whenever possible.
Photo shoots will include the main customer-facing areas of your business. I will work with you to determine what areas of your businesses you would like to highlight, or even exclude from the shoot. Once again, the goal of the tour is to show customers what they would expect to see if they visited your business on a normal day.
You are welcome to clean and tidy things up prior to the photography session, but remember that the aim of the your is to show customers what they would expect to see if they visited your business on a normal day.
A photo shoot takes about an hour, but may be slightly shorter or longer depending on the size of your business.
Getting a photo shoot done for your business is as easy as calling 613-986-6185 or using the contact form on this site to notify us of your desire to get a Google Street View tour.
As a Trusted Photographer I am trained to take high quality photos of building interiors, accommodating for common challenges such as low lighting and tight spaces. I take pictures using a special fisheye lense and rotating camera turrets (mounted on tripods) that, once uploaded to Google’s processing pipelines, will be transformed into 360-degree panoramic imagery and a walk through of your business. Google’s processing pipelines use sophisticated image stitching, HDR, image matching and other technologies to produce these panoramic walkthroughs.
As a Google Street Trusted Photographer I take high-quality still photographs that will be stitched into 360-degree views using panoramic camera technology. I have been trained and certified by Google to produce high quality panoramic images. You’ll be able to see the photos and 360-degree panoramic imagery directly on Google search results and on Google Maps.
When potential customers search for your business on Google, they will see a section within your profile to “See Inside” your business on the search results page. These panoramic images will also be published on Google Maps giving customers a better sense of the layout, decor and beauty of your business interior. You can also display the tour on your own business website, attracting potential customers who visit your website too. This code will be provided to you as part of the tour package.
