The 10 Reasons to Get a Google Business View Photo Shoot

Online Marketing in Fresno is a tricky skill. Where's your local demographic looking for your business today? Obviously it's Google. With so many shopping options and limited time, why will they pick you over another business?
Since 2010 Google has let business owners hire a “Google Trusted Photographer” to come to their store or office, take a bunch of photos, and splice them together into a virtual tour. That tour is called Google Business View. The walkthrough tour and photos get uploaded to your Google Places page ...

He's based in Lemon Cove, no less. Great to hear you're following him, Vanessa. He has been toiling as a freelance photojournalist for a very long time. He's more than paid his dues and it's great to see his work reaching a larger audience.

Ms Rebel by Valentina Bautista
original oil on canvas 
Valentina captures the artistic concept of “Sensual Expressionism.” This process combines Abstraction with the Figurative. Sensual Expressionism creates emotional human figures and faces emerging from the abstractly painted and textured canvas. A sculptural parallel would be the example of the Presidents faces magically emerging from the giant boulders of Mt. Rushmore. Valentina's art collectors are collectors from all parts of the world.

Now available at +Masters Gallery in Clovis, California

Hey +John Saunders , really nice Google Business View virtual tour of the physical rehabilitation clinic, +Ideal Physical Therapy.

If I can ask, I know your exposures are always dead on, but those windows are not even close to 'blowing out'. Did you do a lot of post-processing work to get that? I know you guys have a different sun in AZ, is there a bit of window tint, too? Really nice work. Thnx, CP.

Understanding Exposure – ISO, Aperture and Shutter Speed Explained

When you think of the craft or art of photography, you must immediately think of exposure. Exposure is a critical element that determines what is actually recorded on film or the image sensor. There are three adjustable elements that control the exposure - ISO, Aperture and Shutter Speed.

Legendary lighting builder Paul C. Buff passed away earlier this week. I've always admired how Mr. Buff built his product line on his own terms. You could never buy his equipment from anyone but him. Ahead of the pack in many, many ways.

From his website: Paul C. Buff, Inc.™ was formed in 1980 as a research company, with Paul as the sole stockholder, as he is today. He is known as a maverick who marches to the beat of a different drummer and is highly qualified as inventor, engineer, marketing trendsetter, philosopher and staunch defender of his customers and of the Golden Rule. His roots are depression era where necessity is the mother of invention.

Rest in peace, Mr. Buff.
In shocking news, legendary lighting manufacturer Paul C. Buff has died. According to his website: With great sadness we announce that our founder, Paul C.

ParleyShot Commercial Photography recently created a 360 degree virtual tour of our office. It turned out great! Christian was a pleasure to work with. From start to finish, the project was seamless and took very little effort on our part. We would highly recommend him for any photography work you may need to have done. He is also very knowledgeable about Google and gave us some great suggestions to help us with our Google+ page. Thanks for a job well done!

We have had an opportunity to work with Christian as he did a phenomenal job of doing a 360 view inside our shop to use on our webpage for Aram's auto. He took the time to understand what I was looking for, he made suggestions that were brilliant and enhanced the delivery of the video. It was a pleasure working with Christian and we highly recommend him. Thank you Christian.

I have worked with Chris from Parley Shot for the last three years and I can't say enough about His passion for excellence! He has gone above and beyond the extra mile to accommodate Creative Tiles needs. You can tell when a company really cares about there customers, I truly I know I found a gym here. We had Chris set up our virtual tour and that alone has paid for itself 20 fold. If you need photos choose Parley Shot, You wont be disappointed!
