In house or Outsource Product Photography
If you are thinking about making a website to sell your products online, you have to take a decision if you need to outsource the product photographer or go for the in-house option. One of the biggest misunderstandings about product photography is that people think it is quick and easy to do. However, it takes a lot of time and requires high finance and painstakingly complex work.
Here I am going to explain the elements and consideration needed in photography which will help you in taking the decision whether you need to go for in house product photography or outsource one for the success of your business.
ADVANTAGES OF OUTSOURCING PHOTOGRAPH PRODUCT
No matter how your DIY setup is, chances are you will not be able to do the product photography professionally. The difference will be even bigger if you sell products like glass, jewelry, and expensive watches. A professional photographer will be able to achieve that “magazine look” easily, while you will spend your precious time making crap images.
Professionals will make sure all product pictures are equally good and look perfect. However, if the products are similar, whether in size, colors, or nature, you will find it impossible to make these look different from each other through photography at home.
If you have a wide range of products, it will take months to get your pictures done in-house. Whereas a professional photographer will probably take a days.

DISADVANTAGES OF IN-HOUSE PRODUCT PHOTOGRAPHY
You have to focus more on the management function to control your business, and you have to develop your own photography department. You will also have to provide training to your staff for the technical aspects of photography. Familiarity on the training could hold you back. In house requires a training room, equipment such as a projector, laptop, etc. These extra administrations will be expensive for you.
It is important for you to choose either you want to do in-house product photography or outsource it. I would highly recommend you to choose outsourcing products photography because it has more advantages than in house product photograph as it saves your time and cost as compared to in house photography.
