When engaging a trusted pro
For a business seeking exposure, an experienced Street View contributor can help you gain visibility quickly and easily.
Regardless of your role in this exchange, it’s important to understand each party’s responsibilities, as outlined here.
If you decide to hire a professional photographer to collect imagery of your business, please note that Google does not employ any photographers or agencies and cannot guarantee the quality of their services.
- If a dispute arises from the collection of imagery, you will need to resolve it with the photographer or agency according to the terms of your contract with them. Google does not mediate third-party disputes.
- While Google does not employ photographers or agencies, we do allow contributors to gain the trusted badge. The badge highlights photographers and agencies who have met our quality standards across at least fifty published 360 photos, evidencing their capture and publishing proficiency
Connecting Businesses with Photographers/Agencies
Google may provide trusted photographers and agencies with contact information for a business if the business has requested a professional photo shoot.
- Trusted pros are independent parties who must not misrepresent their affiliations with Google.
- Google wants to enable businesses and photographers/agencies to enter into positive business relationships. In some circumstances, we will share business opportunities with all trusted pros. In other cases, we will share business opportunities with a limited set of trusted pros.
