Commercially Savvy Salisbury

Commercial Portraits

Were you one of the commercially savvy businesses that got your year off to a fresh start by updating the images on your promotional material and website. Well there's still time!

The first couple of months of our new year here at John Rose Photography, Salisbury has been very  busy helping our commercial clients update their images. We find that many companies start the year looking at their marketing material and website. They find it to be the perfect time to refresh everything. The old cliche 'a picture paints a 1000 words' is never more true when it comes to commercial promotion in South Wiltshire and West Hampshire

Commercial art photographyWe all know people buy from people, and the more business savvy people know that making your business stand out from the crowd is even more important. Did you read Mandy's post 'What do the images on your website or promotional material say about you', the guest blog from Personnel Placements  'Profile pictures - what do they tell a potential employer about you?' or the guest blog from Robert Snook, MD of MG Cannon 'What a dose of your own medicine tastes like'. If not then pop over and have a look, they are well worth reading.

6 Reasons Why Images are Important

If you have an online store, issue press releases or even just have a Facebook business “page”, then here are 6 reasons to publish images and photos as part of your business marketing tactics.

  1. Articles with images get 94% more total views
  2. Including a Photo and a video in a press release increases views by over 45%
  3. 60% of consumers are more likely to consider or contact a business when an image shows up in local search results
  4. In an ecommerce site, 67% of consumers say the quality of a product image is “very important” in selecting and purchasing a product
  5. In an online store, customers think that the quality of a products image is more important than product-specific information (63%), a long description (54%) and ratings and reviews (53%)
  6. Engagement rate on Facebook for photos averages 0.37% where text only is 0.27% (this translates to a 37% higher level of engagement for photos over text)

Salisbury Songstress Lizz Badcock - aka Miss Lilli B

Funk Soul Sista - Girl BandAs you may have seen on our Facebook or Twitter pages yesterday and this morning, this very lucky Salisbury photographer had the lovely Miss Lilli B in the studio yesterday.

Lilli is a Salisbury singer/singing teacher. She is currently upgrading her website and needed to get some new photos done. Her current website is here.

You may recognise Lilli from a shoot we did some time ago with the amazing trio Funk Soul Sista. Lilli is on the left in the picture along with Emm (centre) and Becks (right).

As with all of our clients we offer a consultation to enable us to see the finished images through their eyes, and are using Pinterest more and more to enable our clients to receive the personal, bespoke service we are renowned for. Lilli found being able to show us her vision very helpful, not only to allow us to see what she was trying to visualise but to also focus her own thoughts.

So to the shoot.

We had a 2 hour session booked to allow for style changes, etc. We had our style agreed, and we had had a look at the layout for Lilli's new website. All that was left was to set the lighting for the first set and for Lilli to change into her first outfit.

Here are a selection from the shoot. If you would like to see, and hear, the amazing Miss Lilli B, and a few other amazing local talents, including Funk Soul Sista, Kev B, Duncan Heather, and BGT 2013 finalists Kieran and Sarah, she is performing at Stars in the Canyon on Friday 14th November at the Chapel Nightclub. Tickets are available at Eventbrite and are on sale now at a discounted rate for a limited time, so book now to get the best seats at the best prices!
