“Studies have shown that humans create trust, firstly, on a visual level. We initially study a person’s eyes, then judge his/her overall demeanour. Because business is largely researched on the web, the best thing a business owner can do is create a peripheral layer of trust in a short amount of time. A photo does this in spades”

The average person will stay on a website for a little as 10 seconds. It’s paramount you grab the attention of your potential customers during this short amount of time and the best way to do this is through engagement and professional images.
Prospects, competitors, peers and associates, all have access to your website and public social media platforms. Now, more than ever before, has professional image been so important, as the world has an insight into your professional persona.
At Ranson & West Photography, we can give you control of your professional image. We can work with you to create a library of bespoke images, that will reflect your business, brand and personality.
Social Media Images
More and more businesses are using social media to promote their products and services through platforms such as LinkedIn, Twitter and Facebook. They have become the mainstay of a marketing budget. Social Media is also a very visual medium. This is the perfect opportunity to showcase your business’s personality to customers and prospects. We understand the importance of good images for social media use and work with you to create the best images for your company.
Over the last few years, the former photo desks residing in newspaper publishing have all but disappeared. Editors are increasingly reliant on businesses being able to provide their own images to accompany a story. Having your own stock library of photographs to send with press releases or send out with editorial requests, not only gives you some control of the images used, but can help your news story make its way into this week’s paper or news website. If you feel it’s time for a fresh approach to your business’s PR images, we can sit down and talk through your requirements.
This is an opportunity to give a good impression. A less than good quality photo, quickly snapped on a smartphone, not only can give completely the wrong impression, but damage the professional reputation you’ve spent time and money developing.
