Drew Cunningham established his Dundee-based photography company, Mr Drew Photography, in 2010. Then, in September 2012, Drew became the first photographer in Tayside to graduate from Google’s detailed and technically-challenging selection and training programme for “Google Trusted Photographers”. This enabled him to begin shooting SEO-friendly Google Street View virtual tours under the company name ‘Mr Droogle’.
The company has gone from strength to strength, working with both small businesses and high-profile clients such as The St Andrews Links Trust. Mr Droogle tours have included some Street View world-firsts – such as the “Pool View” in the Crieff Hydro tour. Mr Droogle has now expanded to a small team, providing first-class Business View tours to enhance the web presence of businesses, and social media support.
Mr Droogle tours excel in showing off the uniqueness of our clients’ premises – whether they be big or small.
Drew has always had a specific flare for eccentric creativity (he enjoyed lots of dressing up as a child as his mum owned a fancy dress shop), but with a concentrated attitude towards skills and technical focus. These aspects of his personality gradually brought him to a career in photography. After completing his BSc in Computer Applications Development he found his ideal job working with an extreme sports company – involving elements of studio photography, fashion, web development, and model shoots. Since then, he has successfully completed a range of extensive photography courses and is now a studying member of the Royal Photographic Society.
Based in a studio in Dundee since 2010, Drew takes on all kinds of photographic work — from weddings and baby shoots to family portraits and portraits, as well as his work as a Google Trusted Photographer.
