Unlike posts on social media and video streaming sites, the photos and videos are exclusively of locations which people would search Google Maps for. These contributions as such do not go viral and are not typically shared on mass. As such, very few contributors see their images being viewed millions of times. James of ProPics Canada Photography in Edmonton, Alberta Canada has recently passed the 11,000,000 photo views mark this year and is now averaging 90,000 - 100,000 image views per day which he makes absolutely no money for.
Why does he do it? He enjoys photography, helping businesses grow their customer base and showing off our great country to the rest of the world, encouraging tourism to high travel and low travel areas. It is also very satisfying to know that over 11,000,000 people have used his photos to help them find a business or location which they may not even had known about before that time. It is not just about helping people find their destination at any given time but also for potential international visitors to locate information, images and other information on Google Maps when they are planning a vacation or business trip.
James is also the Regional Manager of Edmonton Based Kary Movers which affords him the ability on long distance client relocation's to spend time in his travels to take photos, explore towns, attractions, businesses and other interesting stops and to share them with Google Maps users. The vast majority of his images are from BC and Alberta but also has contributed photos from Saskatchewan, Manitoba, Yukon and at times, international locations.
With his photo contributions and users continually growing, he is excited to also add thousands of new photos, videos and reviews to Google Maps over the next year. Currently averaging almost 100,000 photos viewed daily, it is reasonable that by the end of 2018 that number will easily quadruple.
