Hamilton | Burlington | Oakville | Niagara | Mississauga | Toronto

Lifestyle photography could be head shots, fitness photos, family shots, social media content, or something totally unique. Lifestyle photography is photos that convey a feeling and you may be wondering why image quality matter for a Lifestyle shoot?

Lets take a look…

Lifestyle photos are showing the feeling of your business or product.

You need is to establish your branding, increase visits to your website, and gain more clients. You need to bring in more customers so that you add more revenue to your bottom line and present the right look for your company. It is less about volume and more about quality.

The quality of the photography will either increase your sales or they will turn people away.

If you want to be seen as a leading company in the Hamilton GTA then you need photos that match your brand.

Some entrepreneurs try and justify it by saying that a product is too cheap, or that they don’t want to spend too much on photos because they don’t think it’s worth it.

The limiting factor in that kind of thinking is that those lower quality photos are damaging the reputation of those businesses every single day they are online. If those photos are not amazing, they don’t make buyers say ‘WOW!’, then they’re not making that company look amazing either.

And that’s a big problem.

What should your photos be doing for your business?

The photos you use should be helping you do that in the following ways:

Match Your Position

The right images are needed to match the position of the company. If your company is wonderfully friendly and accommodating, that personality needs to match that reputation with photos which will increase your brand.

The data says image quality matters

An article in Forbes draws from this infographic that has been updated for 2018 and says:

Simply put, consumers believe that good images are essential to an e-commerce experience:

67% of consumers say that the quality of a product image is “very important” in selecting and purchasing the product. It’s not just that images are valued, it’s that they’re often more valued than other content:

The photos are the most important part.

In the 2018 Home Buyers and Sellers Generational Trends Report they found that buyers looking at properties online rated photos as the most ‘useful’ feature along with detailed information about properties for sale. The most important website feature was photos for nine in 10 buyers under the age of 62.

What does this mean?

If we can take these statistics and apply them to any commercial industry then it suggests that the photos you use are at or near the top of the most important things on your company website. 

In other words, the photographs you use matter as much or more than your words. 

“Consumers expect a first class visual experience when they shop or browse online, and they are rewarding companies that give them what they want. The numbers tell the tale:
- 67% of consumers say that an image is “very important” when selecting a product.
- More than 50% of consumers think a high-quality photo of a product is more important than product information, long description, or rating and reviews.”

No matter which media you are using to market your product or service, the message is clear: great images are essential for getting the most out of you marketing efforts.
— Forbes Magazine
The power of images lies in the fundamentals of human nature; we’re wired to notice, remember, learn from, and respond emotionally to visuals.

People remember only 10% of information three days after hearing it, on average; adding a picture can improve recall to 65%

An article at said:

“Consumers who browse products on websites want to see the products they’re considering for purchase represented by the highest quality image possible.”

They also quoted Sheila Dahlgren, senior vice president of marketing at Scene7, who said:

“People do not buy what they cannot see, so the higher the quality and resolution of your imagery, the better your results will be.”
— Sheila Dahlgren

That's an important consideration when you're showing yourself online. Even if you are selling products in a store that people can pick up and hold before buying, the images online draw them in. Consumers will often decide whether or not to contact a company or visit a storefront based on what you show on your website. 

That's why photos matter.
