Preparation and shooting

How much time will the shooting take?
Capturing takes about 1 hour for 10 panoramas. A backup period is included within this time. In it, we have provided minutes to wait for clients who do not have to be in a frame, repeating panoramas in which staff fall into a frame, and more. Together, we will select an hour with a minimum of clients.
Can the closure of the business be avoided at the time of filming?
Closing the site is not required. According to Google's photography policy, some 360 panoramas should not have clients faces. We have learned to work in a way that does not interfere with the standard workflow in a standard business. Together we will choose a capture period when there is are less of clients on the site.
Can I choose the number of panoramas I need for my site?
We will discuss the number of points after viewing the object's photo material. Google's maximum distance between points and capture of the entire retail space of the site cannot be violated. Failure to comply with these recommendations may result in the removal of a captured Google object. Compliance with Google's recommendations ensures quality of service.
How should the site be prepared for filming?

For hotels:

- All room types will have virtual tours (as recommended by Google). This means that there must be at least one free room of type which is fully prepared for capturing. Required are Lobby, Restaurant, Pool and adjoining facilities, Spa center, Fitness, etc. The exception applies to sites that are not owned by the hotel managing company.

- The accommodation is perfectly clean, the beds are made in the most pleasant way for the eye. Fruits or flower vases are great additions to the hotel interior. The bathroom must be loaded with hotel supplies and towels.

- At the common areas (Lobby, Lobby Bar, Swimming pool, etc.) a time with a minimum of customers must be selected.

- Filming requires good lighting. Please replace all incandescent lamps before the team arrives.

 

For restaurants:

- The subject should be loaded with utensils as an event. This makes it more attractive to viewers.

- Remove any objects that do not look aesthetic - baskets, ashtrays, promotional brochures on the tables, withering flowers, etc.

- Ideally, in the particular room being shot, there shouldn’t be anyone else than our team.

 

For others:

Have your subject prepared in its best light - clean, tidy and with a minimum of customers at the time of shooting.
