What is a “Google Street View” Tour?

Google Street View Tours display 360° panorama images stitched together to present a virtual tour of a business, home or other location that can be searched using Google Maps. The tours are linked to Google search results and show views from the street to the inside of locations.

What is a Google Trusted Photographer?

Google has developed a program to certify photographers to represent them doing 360° photography or also known as “virtual tours”. Carlton Soo Hoo became a Google Trusted Photographer in 2012 after participating in this certification program. See Carlton at work and get a sense of his style and personality in this short video.
