Attention Business Owners: 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
