  • Mike Foster, Owner, Treehouse Play Centre

    The perfect way to sell our business is for people to see it or try it, as we are different to the standard play centre. So when I heard about the Google 360 tour, this ticked all the boxes. Now our potential customers can take a virtual 'play' tour of the centre and see what we are all about. This is great for selling our centre, but also managing the expectations in advance which is critical in the competitive play market. We were delighted with the support Nikhilesh was able to offer, always demonstrating his expertise and desire to deliver a finished product to suit our business. His attention for detail and expertise with the camera has delivered a quality finish and really brought the tour to life. We use the 360 tour as much as we can in our online marketing, which has proved to be one of our best investments in the last 12 months.

    A massive thank you for all your work on our two 360 videos, both came out fantastically and we have already had great feedback from them.
  • Revd. Dr. Jonathan Mobey, Rector, St Matthews Church, Harwell

    I was delighted to have Nikhilesh come to photograph our church for Google 360 tours - his friendliness and professionalism were wonderful and the finished product beautiful. We have great hopes that the ability to see the inside of our lovely church on the internet will encourage people to visit and experience it for themselves.
  • Chris Williams, Commercial Manager, Jennings Hampden House

    Navigate & see inside Hampden House & Picnic Hamper
    We asked Nikhilesh to record a tour of our main office centre on Monument Park (Hampden House) and our on-site café, the Picnic Hamper. The results are great – clear pictures, easy to navigate around and they help bring the buildings to life. We particularly like it that you can start the tour anywhere in Hampden House by using a floorplan and clicking on the room you want to see. Thanks very much for a job well done!
  • Sally Davis, Owner, The Cake Shop

    The Google 360° tour has allowed us showcase our shop beyond confines of the Covered Market. Nikhilesh provided an extremely professional service from start to finish and even uploaded the tour on to our Facebook page. I would not hesitate to recommend him to other organisations looking to enhance the display of their business on the web.

Based in Didcot, South Oxfordshire, Nikhilesh has been practicing architectural photography and showcasing “space & ambiance” for the past 8 years with clients like WelshOakFrame, VHH Architects, Oxford Architects etc. Looking at his portfolio, Google contacted him about 8 months ago and asked if he would be interested in taking up this venture for Oxfordshire. He thought this was a natural progression from regular architectural photography work and a great way of showcasing “space & ambiance”. He is Oxfordshire’s first and the only "fully certified" photographer authorised by Google to showcase business interiors on Google Search & Maps using Street View technology. He firmly believes this project will bring international economy to Oxfordshire’s independent businesses and is actively working on promoting independent charities based in Oxfordshire pro bono.
