What is Ecommerce Product Photography?

The Benefits of High Quality Product Photography


When consumers view a product page, they are looking for proof of quality and value. No matter how sophisticated, website visitors are first engaged by visual elements, not written copy. Photos are a key part of a consumer’s decision-making process, ultimately determining conversion and retention rates. The quality of your product photography reflects your brand image, creating the infamous first impression.

The key to making the most of their first impression is to present polished, professional photography that evokes maximum engagement. Ecommerce product photography is a vital element of branding. Branding should be central to every decision your company makes including your social media posts, website updates and all your marketing efforts.

Ecommerce product photography is at the core of your brand. They are the first to grab attention, impart trust, and invite customers to take a further look. Everything in your product photography … quality, subject matter, colour theme and saturation … should speak in a uniform voice that resonates with your target audience. Your goal is to form long-term relationships with your customers, and your product photos are one of the most important tools to achieve that.


Two Types of Ecommerce Product Photography


There are two main types of images that should be used on your product page and across your marketing channels.

The first are clean-cut, white background, product only images. These should include your featured product, and a variety of images showcasing your product from different angles. Below is an example.

Product only images are meant to show your product in its best possible light from all relevant angles. They are usually shot on a white background, helping to create a consistent look across your product portfolio. These images describe your product at a glance and are best suited for your product page. Their purpose is to nurture website page visitors towards making a purchase.

Contrary to what most people might assume, you actually need around 10 to 12 photos on your product page, not just one or two. Most of them should be product only shots, with one or two in-context shots mixed in, designed to create further emotional bonds with your product. Product only images are generally the most suited for product pages, as they have a significantly higher rate of conversion.

The second is in-context or lifestyle photos that show your product being used in its intended environment or alongside complementing products. Here’s the same product in a lifestyle or in-context shot.

Lifestyle shots, ones that tell a story, are best suited for social media, blog posts, emails, and other marketing channels at the top of your conversion funnel. It’s also beneficial to add a few in-context photos to your product page, helping to increase emotional engagement. The same rules apply to taking lifestyle photos as in product-only shots, apart from the fact that lifestyle photos allow you a lot more creative freedom.
