Product

Product photography is a must if you have an online store. How else will customers fall in love with the items you sell? You’ll want product overviews and close-ups to give your customers as much visual information as possible.

If you sell clothing, don’t forget to shoot the dress or shirt on a model for an accurate picture. Then, choose from your best shots.

Industrial

If you’re in manufacturing or construction, you may want to show off your facilities. Photos can reassure people you have great equipment to get the job done.
