You may not realize it, but having high quality, professional images can make your website stand out from your competition. Websites are a visual representation of your business and your overall brand. Using low-quality images or photographs of inconsistent quality on your website make for a poor first impression to your website’s visitors. Most websites have the highest “bounce rate” on the home page. Don’t turn off your site’s visitors by using bad photography!
What’s the simplest way to avoid this? Hire a professional photographer to shoot your website content. You can also mix in licensed stock photography as needed. Never use photos you have downloaded from Google Images, as they are copyrighted! (Copyright infringement law provides a range from $200 to $150,000 for each work infringed, plus attorneys' fees and court costs.)
It’s easier to find good professional photographers today than ever before, but there is a big difference in quality depending on who you hire. Anyone can buy a professional camera these days, but the key is finding someone who knows composition and lighting, and is also creative.
