I recently met a lovely lady called Sabine who has an osteopathy clinic in my local area. She was chatting about getting together her website and needing some photographs for it, so as a starting point, I went over there earlier this week to shoot stage one of ‘operation osteopathy website’ and stage two will follow in a few weeks time. This is a total break away from my normal wedding photography and can’t even be described as portrait photography or product photography – it’s people Jim, but not as we know it! We all really enjoyed this shoot, something completely different for all of us, so wanted to share a few of the pictures with you. Since we started this idea, Sabine has also been treating me for a knee and hip problem and the improvements have been amazing, so if you are looking for an osteopath, I can pass you her details until her shiny new website is ready, just get in touch.
Anyway, on with the pictures – remember the childrens song, Heads, Shoulders, Knees and Toes…Knees and Toes… all together now….
The old adage that a ‘picture tells a thousand words‘ applies as much to the images that sell your products as they do to a wedding story or childhood adventures. The internet is very much a double edged sword in this respect. On the one hand it has made promoting and selling goods to a wider audience both easier and cheaper – whilst it has increased the number of similar vendors you are competing against dramatically.
If you are heading along the road of having your own business, selling your products or service via a website, social networking sites such as Facebook, or an online shop such as Amazon or Ebay, then it is important to ensure the pictures you use give your products a boost do exactly that. Clear pictures with accurate colour representation and clarity can ensure your customers can be sure of what they will receive when they purchase from you.

Using a professional photographer for product photography is something many businesses, both new and established, feel they cannot afford but it is an expense that can quickly yield returns and add that final professional touch to your online shop that can make you stand out from your competitors.
