5 business reasons why you should hire a professional photographer

Published on Mon Jun 14, 2021 by

Professional photography is often seen as a business expense that is not important. Whether you're a start-up, building your brand for the first time or a well-established business revamping your online presence, the cost of professional photography may prompt you to side-line it for now.

Most clued up marketers will argue that is a mistake.

Here are 5 quick reasons why you should hire a professional photographer 

1. Your images represent your brand - low quality, unprofessional photos taken on your phone, communicates the same about your brand - not what you want. First impressions are everything for potential customers - show your products, your services and yourself in the best possible way.

2. A picture is worth a thousand words - we've all heard this but in the age of social media and short attention spans, this is even more important now than 20 years ago.

3. Creating a story - people like to get to know who they are doing business with - they don't want to see generic stock images of products or models. They want to get to know you, the person behind the brand.

4. Images help customers find your business. Search engines love photos. They can help your website get found in Google Image results, perform better in customer engagement and give an edge over competitors.

5. Photos are versatile. The same image can be used for a variety of different purposes, across a range of media - from your website, to social media channels to brochures and promotional materials of all kinds.

So many benefits to having professional photos of you, your services and the products you offer on your website, don't waste an opportunity for an added advantage.

While I am a Liverpool photographer, I work across the North-West of England and with a little planning can take on commissions at an affordable rate in central London, even factoring in the travel costs.

Presentation at Digifest 2021 Festival, Durban, South Africa

A couple of weeks ago I was honoured to be asked to present and exhibit some of my artworks at the “Unmasked” Digifest and annual research conference 2021, based in Durban, South Africa

"I have employed David for conferences, presentations, social engagements, marketing materials, open days, portrait shots, official document signings amongst many others. David has always been amenable to our sometimes short notice and has delivered our photos in a quick time frame as agreed and sometimes much quicker depending on our needs. He has always been very helpful, he follows and delivers on the brief and is able to give additional value to jobs with minimal briefs. I am more than happy to recommend David and he will no doubt deliver the same quality he provides us."
