Sellers have a lot to explain. There is no sales representative on the floor to guide customers through available inventory. Your buyers cannot touch or feel the quality of your product through a virtual storefront. In e-commerce, what you see is what you get, making hiring a professional eCommerce photographer essential to your success.
Beautiful and clear images for sale. It’s that easy. Even if the contents of your subscription box change regularly, photos add personality, context, and value to your brand. While many tools and resources are available for DIY photography, Dubai is the best option for hiring an eCommerce photographer. They know what works and can assist you in planning sessions, exploring locations, and selecting accessories.
How did you go about finding a product photographer Dubai?
In a single word, networking. I cannot emphasize how important it is to build a solid and diverse network of professionals in your city to whom you can turn for advice. For example, we found our photographer through mutual contacts in our network who had previously had positive experiences with him.
Go Image, an Internet marketplace for local services is another excellent resource. You can post your exact requirements, and photographers in your area will contact you with your contact information and rates. It’s a quick way to avoid search engine noise and find people in your area who are interested in your project.
How did you find out about the photographer?
The majority of photographers have a personal website that includes a portfolio of their work. If your website does not impress you or match your aesthetic, you might not be the right person for the job. In addition, you must ensure that the person you hire has experience in the recording style that he requires. Just because someone is an excellent portrait and wedding photographer does not imply that they are knowledgeable about product photography. Before signing a contract, always conduct research and an examination of the person you are hiring.
Are the rates and terms of the freelancers negotiable?
Depending on your business, bartering can be a great way to cut down on the cash you need to have. Most freelancers charge hefty fees due to their skills and unpredictable work hours, which means there’s room for maneuver at that price. So it may benefit both of you if you can offer them something of value other than cash.
How do you intend to make use of photography?
It will be used throughout the site. As a no-showcase food delivery service, we believe our customers must see the product they will receive when they place an order. High-quality photographs allow customers to see the care and consideration we put into each meal, which puts us ahead of our competitors.
Did you conduct any research in preparation for your shoot?
This is another aspect of the shoot where we chose to delegate our knowledge. Photographers are masters of their craft, but we found that hiring an art director to provide creative assistance for the node was highly beneficial. The director was crucial in translating our vision and collaborating with our photographer to create the best possible staging and lighting to minimize any post-processing that might have been necessary. As a second set of trained eyes, the art director was invaluable, and he also assisted with photo processing after the shoot.
Did you find a location for the photoshoot? If so, how so?
Professionals will handle this. After providing direction on what we needed in the photos, the photographer and director found the ideal locations and props for the shoot (houses, kitchens, people, etc.).
What advice would you give to other subscription box companies?
Recognize your strengths and delegate your weaknesses. For example, I’m not the most creative person globally, and outsourcing professionals who are masters of their craft allowed us to create a premium product as a company. Furthermore, the small investment in hiring experts will yield a much higher ROI than the stick figures you made for the site.
