It’s Your Brand

If you’ve already decided to hire a professional product photographer for your amazon listing, you’ve made a wise choice.  Photography is easy to do, but difficult to master.  Your brand is important in business, and your product photography is what you show the world.  If you’re thinking of having a friend take your product photo or of doing it yourself, you may want to think again.  There are a few things to consider before dismissing the idea of hiring a professional all together.

Reason #1:  Consistency

A professional product photographer will create a consistent, cohesive group of images, where an amateur might struggle in this area.  An experienced photographer will have the skills and equipment needed to create a consistent group of images for your product(s).  Amazon has specific rules that must be adhered to.  Be sure your photography follows Amazon’s product photography guidelines.

Reason #2: Options

Whether photographing your product for Amazon or for your website, a professional product photographer will also have options.  Props, lighting, sets and backdrops; you name it, they’ll have it.  An amateur photographer or a DIY warrior will be limited by their total budget.  Just getting a decent camera, lights, or props could eat your entire photography budget.  A professional product photographer does jobs like yours on a regular basis, so will have all the necessary tools to create beautiful images for your product.

Reason #3: Value

With options comes value.  You might buy a display or lighting for your product, or even a really nice camera, only to find it won’t work the way you hoped.  When you hire a professional product photographer, you can rest easy knowing that they will already have everything you need to get the perfect end result.  A pro will also do more than take pictures.  They will also have the tools to edit and refine your product photos, often bundled with photography in the final cost.  This means better value and the best possible ROI for your investment.  They can help you steer clear of mistakes amateur photographers can make, saving you money in the long run.

Reason #4: Guidance

For a professional product photographer, your happiness is the ultimate goal.  They will help guide you through the entire process, from selecting backdrops, props, and lighting, to choosing the final images for your product.  Photographers do this for a living, so they know what works and looks good and what doesn’t.
