Google Trusted Photographer

Google Business Photos

Finally I’m able to talk about the amazing new project I’m starting !!!!

After 4 months of training and exams I am now officially the “GOOGLE TRUSTED PHOTOGRAPHER” for Bury and the surrounding areas and am now able to start the “Google Business Photos” project.

After what what was an everyday phone-call I am now starting possibly the most exciting project in my photography career to date.

I can now bring “Google Street View” into your business !!

Let your clients wander into your business off the street and have a 360 degree virtual tour looking at everything your business has to offer. Let your customers browse around your shop/hotel/restaurant etc. and view what you have to offer including menus and wine lists etc. Let them get acquainted with their surroundings before they even set foot in your business.

Not only is you virtual tour on Google but you can use it on your own personal website.

See my new Google Business Photos website and more details and sample virtual tours at

If you want to know more please contact me for further details.

Hundreds of people descended on the Village Hotel, Bury to take part in an event with Dame Kelly Holmes all hoping to be inspired to get more out of life with the “Perfect Fit” fitness challenge.

We all  spent a great afternoon sampling what the village Hotel has to offer and then had an inspiring talk by Dame Kelly Holmes where she chatted about her early career in the army all the way to the current date where she is helping us prepare for the upcoming Olympic games.

Kelly spent time chatting with people and then posed for photographs during a book signing. She then spent time with all the children and conducted a junior athletics workshop which seemed to go down great with all the kids. Im sure the chocolate medals did too !!!
