Photography will always be a key element within web design and design in general. People desire authenticity from the brands they use. They know a canned, stock photo when they see one.
Brands and designers will now be thinking more carefully about the imagery they use on site. Therefore hiring professional photographers to take their shots which frame them in the way they want to be seen.
Unfortunately, it’ll probably be a long time before much of the cheesy stock photography completely disappears. However, expect to see it start falling off a little more quickly in the future.
Many sites, although increasingly similar in their structure and usability will become more visually diverse and interesting as more unique, creative and branded content is produced.
We will start to see brands finding innovative ways to make their mark using photography.
Furthermore, video, illustration and typography can really help brands distinguish themselves online.
Unique, carefully-considered is the name of the game here!
We are fortunate enough to work with a collection of photographers, each specialising in a different area of commercial photography.
For a truly unique, high end, professional looking website, it is well worth the extra money to achieve a one of a kind, individual look for your online presence.
Although most customers have a limited budget and rely heavily on stock images, it may be worth considering paying a little extra to achieve that unique look and feel that will make you stand out from the crowd.
Get in touch to discuss your ideas and we can try to work to any budget you have in place.
As a Blandford based company we try to use local photographers when the expertise is available, therefore keeping costs to a minimum for local companies. Photography costs will vary depending on the size of the project.
