A Google Certified Photographer will be in Grayson County on January 5 and 12 to take photographs of local businesses for Google+ and other online promotional outlets.
Jody Henderson, of All in One Local, has arranged for Joseph Danzer, one of three Google Certified Photographers in Kentucky, to hold photo shoots for local businesses from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Sunday, Jan. 5 and Sunday, Jan. 12.
“I’ve already booked many time slots for those dates, but there are still a few available,” Henderson said.
For a $350 fee, Danzer will take 15 business photos and five 360 degree panoramic shots of the business to be used for Google+ virtual tours, and additional photos may be taken at the cost of $45 each, Henderson said.
The businesses will have full rights to use the photos in any way they choose.
Henderson said the photos will serve businesses exceptionally well if they are used to enhance the businesses’ Google+ and Google Places pages.
According to Henderson, every business already has a Google+ Local page that will appear as a result if someone searches for it on Google.
If a business claims its Google+ Local page, it can take advantage of additional features, such as uploading photos to the page.
“[With photos,] your listing on Google Places is going to look fantastic compared to the guy who doesn’t have it,” Henderson said.
The first Grayson County business to receive this service is the newly open Twin Lakes Gymnastics, the photos from which are available for viewing at seeinsideleitchfield.com.
Any businesses interested in finding out more information or scheduling a photo shoot for either Jan. 5 or 12 may contact Henderson online through seeinsideleitchfield.com or allinonelocal.com or by phone at 270-589-0087.
