"I am now able to reach customers that I would have never been able to find"- John Garcia, General Manager.
"San Diego Pier Cafe is a landmark in San Diego. We have been serving our famous fish and chips for over 30 years. It is all in the batter and the quality of the fish!"
Why we signed up
"San Diego Pier Cafe is a premier restaurant on the water in the San Diego Bay. The views are spectacular and deserve to be represented online."
Our favorite feature
"I love that when people view our business photos they can walk through the entire restaurant. This allows them to see everything from the Coronado Bridge, to North Island Naval Base, to the USS Midway."
"Recently, a gentleman contacted me from Mexico City. He was looking for a unique restaurant to spend New Years Eve. It was the Google Business Photos that compelled him to contact us."
How can Business Photos help my business?
When potential customers search for your business by name on Google, they will see the images displayed directly on the search results page. These panoramic images will also be published on Google Place pages, Google Maps and other Google properties and give customers a better sense of the layout, decor and beauty of your business interior. Using easy-to-use html snippets, you can also link to these images from your own business website, attracting potential customers who visit your website too.
Why are businesses being photographed and how can I see the pictures?
Google Trusted Photographers are taking high-quality still photographs that will be stitched into 360-degree views using panoramic camera technology. These Trusted Photographers are independent contractors who have been trained and certified by Google to produce high quality panoramic images. As a business owner, you can also upload your own photographs to Google by signing into Google Places. You’ll be able to see the photos and 360-degree panoramic imagery directly on Google search results and on your Place page.
What will the Trusted Photographer do that I can’t do myself?
Trusted Photographers are trained to take high quality photos of building interiors, accommodating for common challenges such as low lighting and tight spaces. The photographers are also certified to take pictures using fisheye lenses and rotating camera turrets (mounted on tripods) that, once uploaded to Google’s processing pipelines by photographers, will be transformed into 360-degree panoramic imagery and a walk through of your business. Once photographers upload the pictures from their cameras, Google’s processing pipelines use sophisticated image stitching, HDR, image matching and other technologies to produce these panoramic walkthroughs.
How long will the photo shoot take?
In most cases, a photo shoot will take about an hour, but this varies depending on the size of your business.
