Why have professional photography instead of using stock photography – Photos by Kim E
Images are such an important part of marketing your website and social media since they are very visual in telling your business’s story. While stock photography can be convenient and cost-effective for some parts of your business, your business should feature more than just stock photography. Using professional photography instead of stock photography for your business not only shares photos of you but also your products, and personality which allows connection to your potential clients.
Here are some other things to think about:
- Visual Identity: These images are customized to your specific needs, ensuring that your visuals set you apart. Stock photos can be generic and there is a chance that other businesses are using them so many people will recognize stock vs. professional photography.
- Authenticity: We’ll photograph the real-life moments while you’re working and the essence of your products or services which helps to create a connection with your clients. They see more of you and take a peek behind the scenes of your business and how you create.
- Variety: With your own professional photography instead of stock photography, your photos have variety. We’ll plan ahead and can think about building content for the holidays or fill-in-the-blank days. You’ll always have fresh, relevant images for your marketing purposes.
- Licensing: With stock photography, there can be licensing agreements and restrictions on how you use the images. With our session, the photos are yours to promote your business, for as long as you want.
So if you’re thinking that it’s time for a custom library of images for your business, consider investing in a session so we can capture the essence of your business. Let’s create beautiful images of your business for your ideal clients!
