But… I can\’t afford a photographer!

Don\’t worry! I have a few tips for you to take some photos using your phone or a decent camera. Just do the following:

  1. Take a lot. Doesn\’t matter if you like them all, take loads!
  2. Make sure they are framed well, use the rule of thirds
  3. Use people if you can, and make them smile
  4. Natural light is always a winner, take shots of people outside or near a window
  6. No really, don\’t use flash!

Your website will look a million times better if you follow these simple rules. No more men in offices presenting to people please!
