The key word in the “Trusted Independent Photographer” title is “Independent”. We are NOT Google employees, partners, or contractors. We are local commercial photographers who are part of a network of Google contributors. Our lead photographer, Mike O’Mara, received training from Google and has been granted access to some tools that are reserved for members of the Google Street View Trusted program. The “Trusted” part means that Google trusts us to submit quality imagery that follows Google’s content and privacy guidelines.
We don’t work for Google — we work for YOU, to help you promote your business on Google.
