A photo of the business owner or staff is a commonly requested POI. Unfortunately, Google’s privacy restrictions on Trusted Independent Photographers prohibits us from submitting POI images of people.
But there is a work-around.
The guidelines for image submissions by business owners are more relaxed. So, if you really want staff photos, we can take them and give the image files to you. You can then upload those images to your Google Business page yourself. However, if you do that, you are responsible for getting permission to publish images of anyone in those photos.
Note: The need to get their permission before publishing an image of a person is a legal requirement, not just a Google rule. Technically, that permission should be in writing. If you publish someone’s image without permission, you may never be challenged, but if you are, it can be a big deal.
