Google Virtual Tours


2013.jpg

2012 was an exciting year.

Our team has shot and published over 100 Google Tours using Google's awesome Street View Technology.

For us, the best part of being a Google Trusted Photographer has been the priveledge to experience and share local Indiana businesses with the rest of the world.

Indiana is not just a crossroad, but it's a place worth checking out.

When we think about our work in 2012, we don't think of numbers or personal accomplishments, but instead, we think of the dog-loving, open and honest, Barbara Munchel at the Cigar Haven. We think of the Hot Pink Gorilla Suit worn by Fat Atom's Creative Director. We think of Roy at Mudbugs and how his Crawfish Casserole and Beignets make me want to bring them both to a party and say, "I made that". We think of the volunteer-powered bookstore, Bloomington knows as Boxcar Books. We think of St. Elmo's and how they embraced us, believed in us and were just down right nice.

Those thoughts are how we determined that 2012 was one damn good year.

Don't judge a business by their curb appeal because it's really what's on the inside that counts and I'm not referring to tables and chairs, but rather the owners and crew... they are what makes a place so special.

Second Helpings, Helps.

Eliminating Hunger, Empowering People, & Rescuing Food.


Last week, we had the privilege of providing Google Business Photos to an organization who does more for our community in 24 hours, than most of us have done in our lifetime.

We are talking about Second Helpings, or who we like to refer to as the “Soul Feeders”. 

Second Helpings turns over 100,000 pounds of rescued food into over 50,000 meals every month. They also provide free culinary job training to unemployed and underemployed individuals. They even assist in job placement for graduates. Over 480 adults, have successfully completed their program.

Second Helpings is a wonderful organization filled with serving members of our community whose only agenda is to... HELP. They’re friendly and they never forget to say, “Please” & “Thank You”. Their students are bright-eyed, proud, and are on the right road towards accomplishment. 

So, as the leaves turn and our hearts start to get a little warm and fuzzy... Think of Second Helpings and how you can help, help

Nora Spitznogle, operations director at Second Helpings, mentioned that they are always looking for volunteers (of all ages). Please visit their website, www.SecondHelpings.org, to see how you can help.
