“We have been pondering how to extend to young people and others, who cannot for the time being visit the Abbey, something of the experience available for our many visitors. I am delighted that this new collaboration will enable people from Timbuktu to Kalamazoo and beyond to see and learn so much more than previously about the magnificence and significance of this great and beautiful Church.”
The Very Reverend Dr John Hall | The Dean of Westminster
“This beautiful collection highlights the splendour of Westminster Abbey, the value of Street View publishing, and some truly exceptional imagery on the part of the photographer. We're delighted to see and support awareness for such powerful content.”
Charles Armstrong | Street View Product Manager | Google
“Striking Places were able to take our original idea and guide us through the project in an efficient and comprehensive manner. They were excellent at identifying how to maximise Google Maps Business View for the specific needs of the centre and, more broadly speaking, the RSPCA as a whole.
Google Maps Business View enables us to show the breadth of our operation, our facilities and some of the intricacies of what we do in a way that has never been realistically possible before.”
Alan Moynihan | Solutions Exploitation Manager | RSPCA
“The University of Hertfordshire is delighted with the work carried out by Striking Places. This is a huge project consisting of over 30 locations campus wide.
Striking Places worked with the marketing team across many departments and disciplines, seamlessly weaving their way through the intricacies of a large university to deliver outstanding photographic content.”
Ed Layt | Head of Marketing Services | University of Hertfordshire
"Striking Places are brilliant to work with. They are great to have around and work really efficiently with no disruption to customers or staff. A lot of the Aylett Team had used Google Street View so they were really excited about it being extended inside Aylett Nurseries. The benefits have been manifold. We have over 42,000 product lines. Listing them would be ridiculous but the tour enables customers to visually see what we have on offer and has really brought the garden centre alive."
Julie Aylett | Owner | Aylett Nurseries
Striking Places are an excellent firm of photographers. Very friendly, very professional. I have used them to take pictures of my office, create a virtual tour of my new offices, as well as my holiday home in Carpentras, France (Mas de la Quintine, @holidayinprovence) and for our company golf day. You should also use Striking Places for your photography and video needs

"The charity TRAID (reg no 297489) used Striking Places to carry out Google Street View Trusted for its portfolio of charity shops. TRAID has a strong visual and online identity, so enabling Google Street View in our shops made sense. I found Striking Places brilliant to work with. Jo is very friendly and professional and the process was simple and non-intrusive. They delivered on time, to budget and at an extremely high quality. We are delighted with their work and will continue to work with Striking Places as we open new shops and refurbish existing ones. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them."

The level of service we received both during and after the work was completed has been of the highest standard and it has been a pleasure to work with them."

After seeing Jo’s work at Striking Places, I was very eager to learn more. I was very impressed with the quality of the work that Jo provides, and her personal service, catered to my needs. After a brief introduction to how Street View works I was keen to use this method with my own business. Together Jo and I came up with ideas on how to get the best from her images and the results are a fascinating display of her work. I would definitely recommend Striking Places to any other business, looking to build on client relationships and extend their reach to a wider audience.

"We have had Striking Places produce two of our Veterinary Google Tours. The booking process was efficient, they came to the practices shortly after and we had a great Google tour posted within days. The practices found Striking Places non-intrusive and their work did not effect the day – considering these are busy hospitals. The tour has really helped with people getting an idea of the practice before they visit."
Elaine Lawrie | Marketing Manager | Village Vet

"Jo has done a tremendous job creating a Google Street View Inside for a major garden centre client. The business covers a vast area with many different departments. Jo conducted the shoot in a very patient way, going 'above and beyond' to ensure clients were not disrupted and she captured the most effective shots possible. Her follow up and delivery has also been exceptionally good. I would have no hesitation in recommending her as a Google Street View supplier."
