Chances are you have heard the phrase “A picture is worth a thousand words”. As cliche as it is, it couldn’t be more accurate. Photography serves as a representation of your brand’s story in a visual way. Whether on location or in the studio, you want to make sure that the photographs you are getting will tell that story in the best possible way, without having any extra elements within the shot that do not serve the brand.
When it comes to product photography, it is all a matter of accurately yet attractively presenting the product. To have the product isolated with good lighting, yet only having soft shadows and no reflections is much more difficult than one would ascertain. The products have to be presented in such a way that the shadows and light are consistent, and if the product is transparent or highly reflective, it takes a professional to get the job done.
Commercial photography, or photography with the aim of using images for commercial use or advertising purposes, is another service which falls in this category. Commercial photography is highly important because in this arena, there are companies using original content and there are those using pre-made commercial photographs such as is the case with stock-photo use. Paying for stock photos can be expensive, and even then you are using an image which has been used by countless brands in a variety of mediums. Having original content unique to your brand is something that is invaluable in the long run.
