I've always been quite sceptical of getting some professional photographs done, surely it was only for big businesses with big budgets? As a small business everything I spend money on has to make sense and produce some sort of return on investment.
However after reassessing some of my marketing material which was looking a bit tired and also starting to make pieces which won't fit in my tiny light box I thought it was time I bit the bullet and tried it out and I'm so glad I did!
I found a local photographer, PhlashWorx. Stephanie and Trevor were super helpful and completely calmed my nerves. It helped that they really liked my work too!
It turned into a very fun morning, I really enjoyed styling some of the lifestyle shots with simple accessories and it helped me see some of my pieces in a new way! I'm still waiting for the final post production photographs and I'll post an update when they are ready but to any other small businesses out there I would say go for it!
Especially if your shop is mainly online your photographs are your shop window, you can have the most beautiful, fabulous piece of art but without a good photograph no one will ever know.
