When the Google Business Photos service was first launched the program was only available in select cities and was effectively by invitation only. However Google have now made the whole program self-service. So if you do want a professional photographer to come take photos of your business, here’s your chance.
SMBs can now get started by finding a trusted photographer from Google’s list and then both parties work out a time and price on their own. Within days your photos will then be available on Google’s properties. Google has essentially taken itself out of the equation and is now playing match-matcher between SMBs and photographers.
