Good Product Photography Sells Your Items!

         That’s a simple and straight forward fact. If you have a brand with an online presence regardless if its an Amazon store, Etsy store, Big Cartel Store, your own website or even Instagram; you’re going to need some stellar product photos. Some people decide to take the photos themselves with their phones, which I think is a big NO NO because it affects sales almost directly. I can’t even tell you how many times clients call me and say “Hey, I took photos with my phone and I’m not selling anything…can you help me?” and of course I say “No, beat it! I’m not running a charity!” That would make for a short blog post, right? NO! I walk them through my process to take great product photos and make sure that I have their needs in mind. I offer full-blown Amazon product photo packages including shots on white, lifestyle photos, and even video. All of these are important to have because your potential customers want to know exactly what they are getting and a pretty picture sells them on your item. Perception is  99% of reality right? (I may be off on that but for all intents and purposes that’s the percentage I’m sticking with!)

         Just think about the amount of stuff there is out there. We buy stuff all the time. That stuff also sells itself with photos. When you go to Amazon you’re more attracted to items that have better photos and better reviews. You feel confident in your purchase and are able to look at what you just bought and say to yourself “Wow I just got that!” We are more attracted to something elegant and high end looking even though we know that sometimes when we open the package we get the reality of a product, which is ok because you bought it for a reason, right? As a seller you want your photos to look as elegant and glamorous as possible. Investing in good product photography is just one step of the ecomm puzzle. I have seen many clients’ sales sky rocket through some great photos that I’ve provided. Regardless of the item you are wanting to sell a good photo helps especially if you’re selling something as mundane as extension cords. I can shoot the heck out of an extension cord lemme tell ya. Personally, my favorite ecomm items to shoot are electronics because they lend themselves to lots of creativity.

        If you’re going to book a product shoot I suggest having samples in mind of shots that you absolutely love as well as a budget. It also wouldn’t hurt to have a delivery date in mind too! I enjoy feeding off clients ideas and delivering unique photos that display their product to the fullest. Here’s an example of a shoot done earlier in the year for a felt sign. inspirational quotes, inspiration, product photography, product photographer, excellent product photograhy, still life, still life photography, advertising photographer, amazon photos, amazon photographer,

Compared to other sellers on Amazon I delivered a better product for my client who loved the gallery I sent her way. Crisp and clean photos are also a selling point for your items plus making sure the item has no imperfections during an edit.  I offer excellent rates and a quick turnaround time on edits!

Why is your headshot important?

I get asked this question a lot! Headshots are an extremely important form of communication. A picture is worth a thousand words and sometimes none more so than a picture of your face. It lets people know who they’re interacting with. Your face shows your whole range of emotion and gets your message across. Headshots aren’t just for actors or models. They are for EVERYONE.

It’s my job as a photographer to make you look like a star…wait is it?

Sounds kind of self-serving. 

It’s MY job as a photographer to guarantee you a comfortable headshot session where you can drop your guard and put your best face forward. Let’s face it-most people hate being in front of the camera. Lots of my clients get headshots because they “have to” but they leave completely vamping for the camera and getting into their session. It’s like getting a shot as a kid or eating your vegetables – it’s not so bad once you do it! 

At the end of the day people want to see who they are talking to, they want to know who is applying to the new job, who does IT for the company, who is the CEO/CFO/CPA/MVP/NWO of whatever organization you come from, and most importantly they want to know YOU. You can literally upload your headshots to EVERY social media service, dating app, business app, or  any website you can think of. Your face is part of your brand and if you’re an actor or model it IS your brand. Keep that in mind when you’re booking a session. A good headshot is an investment in yourself. 

You also never know when you might need one! You can get a new position at your job and BOOM they’re going to ask you for a professional photo. You may get interviewed by a news outlet and guess what? They will definitely need a photo of you. You can send them photos from 20 years ago doing keg stands at a frat party or send in that one wedding photo you looked great in while cutting off the rest of the folks in it. People know. They know…and they judge. 

My favorite headshot session to do is The Walk Around. I meet my clients at a predetermined location and we walk around and talk for around an hour to an hour and half just shooting and changing outfits. This is my most popular session as well because it’s filled with quality images and great conversation. And don’t worry – if you’re not a big talker I can probably handle that for the both of us. I’m loquacious. 

I guarantee you getting some new headshots will be one of the easiest and rewarding things you will do in your professional life. 

Lets throw on some tunes and shoot!

Blastoff Into The Future

2017 was a weird year. For everyone. But these kinds of things help us grow and mature. We learn from our mistakes even though sometimes it takes us a while to realize that. 2018 will personally be a year of laser-like focus for me toward the goals I want to achieve. I used to never make resolutions. I didn’t believe in them. But I believe in myself now more than ever and know I have resolve. We all do. I encourage everyone to try and be the best they can at whatever they want to do and not to let anyone stand in their way. My goals are to be a better person and a better photographer. Over the last year, my passion for production came back like a phoenix from the ashes. I was too mired in always thinking about work and getting gigs that I lost sight of some creativity in my life. Since making that realization I’ve accumulated quite the number of ideas in a notebook (complete with color coated post it’s) that I’m hoping to write, film, produce, and rock over the next year.

It’s been close to five years since I started my photography business full time and my passion has been reignited to create more than what my skillset is. This year I hope to create my own YouTube show, expand my podcasting, shoot bigger photography projects, write at least four shootable projects, get in better shape, see more movies, read more books, be a bigger fanboy of the stuff I love,  create more art (I can draw and paint ya know!) and just be an all-around better person. Of course, there will be bumps in the road but I’m at the age where I need to consciously reassure myself of my decisions. I’m a self-admitted late bloomer but on a great day I wake up feeling like I’m 17 again. Maybe I should look into that. Life is such a learning process and it would be very easy to just stay the same without any progression. The late bloomer in me talking is feeling like I’ve been waking up for the last five years. I’m still not 100% there and who knows if I ever will be but progress, right? You don’t have to be confined by whatever crazy walls your brain builds for you. We can literally do anything our mind thinks of. All it takes is a little push, positivity, and the will to manifest what you want.

What is gonna motivate YOU this year?

Getting New Headshots

Headshots Help

We all have dreams. Some of us follow those dreams. Some of us don’t. That’s a fact. If you ever wanted to be an actor, model, or entertainer and decided to quit your day job to pursue your dream full time then more power to you. That one solitary spark of ambition already sets you apart from the pack. There are tons of great resources out there for a young actor,model or musician to get their foot in the door and many great websites, podcasts, blogs to steer you in the right direction. However, the one thing anyone breaking into the entertainment industry needs is a good headshot. If you’re a business person, lawyer, accountant, ad exec, you should get headshots done out of necessity because in a world that is getting faster paced – people need to see who you are. It’s a great way for people to see your “game face!”

But Why, Rich?

Headshots help. Why? Well, there are a thousand and million reasons. They show casting agents that you are serious about putting your face out there. They are a great way to get attention to your social profiles (which ever one you use), and they are a tool to get you where you need to go. Don’t think of headshots as a luxury. Think of them as a vital part of your process to fulfilling your dream. YOU are your brand. They are also a great add on to your website, which you should have regardless of what field you’re in. If you have founded a niche company and want folks to get to know you a bit with a personal touch then add a photo to your “about” page. Investing in professional photography for your personal headshot goes a long way in this day and age. Please don’t use wedding photos or selfies or shady iphone pictures! We live in the future and everything is a click or swipe away. BOOM! You need that image to have an impact that people will remember.

Once you have a photo or set of photos; those images will be your go to for a surprising number of connections. If you subscribe to a site like helpareporter.com where writers looking to interview you for a specific topic will require a headshot. That means don’t send them the photo of you from Halloween that you think looks sexy. It means send them a professional looking photo that you have on deck because you invested in yourself. What do headshots mean for business? It means clients can attach a face to brand. What do headshots mean for an aspiring actor or model? It means they now have a way to communicate their money maker to interested parties.

Put Yourself Out There

If you’re starting your entertainment career, leaving an old job to start your business, or even if you just want some photos to reflect yourself to others then I suggest getting some professional headshots done. It’s part of the experience of going out on your own and saying “Here I am.” It can be daunting. I get it. Not everyone likes photos. But, that’s part of the fun in life – the unknown. And like that Nike man says “JUST DO IT.”

The Importance of a Corporate Headshot

If you are an executive, entrepreneur, or work in a corporate environment- do NOT underestimate the importance of a great corporate headshot. Times have changed and so has company culture across the board as well as the hiring process. Potential employers and clients want to see who you are and that selfie from your last vacation won’t cut it. Now don’t get me wrong – you don’t need a stodgy photo that looks like it was taken 50 years ago but you definitely need something that represents you. Here are a few examples of corporate headshots I’ve taken over the last few years: Corporate Headshots In NY

Now, most people hate being in pictures; let alone professional ones. But you must keep in mind that they are a huge necessity and tool in 2017 and beyond. People see these shots and know who you are. People see these shots to get a feel for who you are. Like I said; no one wants to look at you downing a cocktail at a wedding as your LinkedIn photo. No one wants to see a photo of you from a frat party that happened ten years ago. You need new shots, dudes and dudettes! You’d be surprised how many people use that “CUTE PHOTO” from their last boozie brunch! The point is – if you want to be taken serious you need a well composed photograph that could be used for a multitude of things. In this age of hyper connectivity you could use a handful of your new shots for your website, linkedin, your companies site, email blasts, and press citations. I hear all the time “I have a speaking engagement…and they want a photo…what do I do?” Well – in that case – step into my studio.  I offer a quick, painless, and most would say fun process for your shots. You get all images same day plus  set number of edits once we agree on a package.

Most of my clientele are booking their shots for the first time and I would ease them through the process as it can be daunting for those that have never had professional pictures done. At this point in time and possibly in your career it’s a necessity and you should embrace being in front of the camera at least once so you can get some great shots. There are a few different styles out there of course but I always suggest a more business casual environmental feel with an out of focus background. It honestly looks really cool especially if shot in a dynamic way.

When you reach a certain level of success or have a large presence online or in the media the odds are that someone will be looking to interview you or highlight you in some regard. When that happens they will more than likely ask for some pro photos. That’s where your corporate headshot comes into play. And I don’t mean just corporate – I strongly suggest a combination of corporate/casual/artistic photos that you can not only send to a variety of folks or outlets but also use for your personal sites or social handles. Believe me a great photo goes a long way. I can’t tell you how many clients I have that reach out to me for multiple shoots because they love the way their shots turned out. It’s an addiction!
