Google Business View Shoot Checklist

 

Below is a list of things that the business owner can do to make the photo shoot successful and the business "show" better in the photographs. 

 

 


 


 

  • EXTERIOR PHOTOGRAPHY

  • Replace any burned out light bulbs (we turn on every light in the building)

  • Have employees park their vehicles away from the front of the building.

  • Mow the grounds (and put  hoses, garbage cans, recycling, etc. away).

  • Remove posters and flyers from windows and entry doors.

  • INTERIOR PHOTOGRAPHY

  • The front door has to be held open for the entry shots.  Please make sure the door stops work or other method of holding the door open is in place.

  • Remember to remove coats, etc. from the back of doors.  We often close doors when photographing inside a room so the back of the door may be visible.

  • Replace any burned out light bulbs (we turn on every light in the building)

  • If there are pictures of people on the walls, we are required to blur out the faces.

  • It is best of people can step away from their work station or desk when we photograph in their area.  If they cannot step away and their face is visible in the panorama, we are required to blur out their face so they cannot be recognized.

  • We understand that business comes first and you must take care of your customers.  We will patiently wait for an area to clear of people or customers.

  • The "shoot positions" are pre-determined during the preliminary walk-through.  They cannot be changed so if there is a concern or issue, please notify the photographer in advance.

  • The images are 360 degree panorama images, meaning "everything is visible."  For example, if you have a display that you are not happy with and it is in a room that will be photographed, please find a way to get happy with it.  We cannot exclude any part of the 360 degree view.

  • Remove the photos, magnets, artwork, shopping lists, etc. from sides of file cabinets and refrigerators.  We all have them but it doesn't show well in the photographs.

  • Remove any time sensitive or seasonal items.  For example, a Christmas display would quickly cause an image to be outdated. 

  • Keep kitchen or break room countertops clear of clutter (does not have to be sterile looking, just not an assortment of blenders, coffee pots, toasters, juicers, etc.).

  • Have gates and doors unlocked for easy access. 

  • Don't plan on moving stuff from room to room while the photographs are being taken.  It wastes valuable photography time that could be used more wisely.

  • Bring any questions or concerns to the photographer when he arrives.  When the photography starts, it's best to leave the photographer alone to concentrate on the technical and creative aspects of the trade.
