I am in the process of starting an online shop. I want to get the photography right by hiring a professional. However, due to the nature of my business (I will be selling one off items), I think the current prices are pretty steep. As an example, I might have only one dress in one size and spending about £8 to get it photographed will probably kill off my business before it even starts. What ways can I get around this? So far, I have thought of engaging a photographer and paying a monthly fee to take my photographs with an agreed minimum and maximum no of items per month. Not sure if that will work or if there is a better solution? Any advice on this please? Items will be a mixed lot - clothes, ornaments etc. Thanks!
