Google recently removed the requirement that Google Street View | Trusted photographers take a minimum of 10 Point of Interest (POI) photographs for each client. I imagine that one reason for removing this requirement was the inconsistent quality of the images. Unlike the panoramic images Google did not provide a process for capturing or enhancing POI images.
My award winning architectural and landscape photographs has been a significant differentiator for clients when choosing a Google Street View photographer. The images I take are owned by the business. They are high-quality images that can be use on-line or print. A value ad that benefits my client.
The method I use for each POI is called HDR or High-Dynamic-Range imagery. HDR is a post-processing technique that requires a series of photographs of identical shots taken at different levels of exposure. Once the images have been blended together through a process called “tone mapping,” they produce a greater dynamic range of luminosity than is possible using standard digital imaging.
Whether I am photographing architectural or landscape images for a world renowned fine art gallery, museum, apartment complex or a local salon my method and goal is the same. To produce and develop high-quality images that stand out online or in print.
Below are a few of my favorite.
