Ultimately, I came to the final conclusion that product photography in its current form does not compare in any way to holding the real thing in your hands. I had to offer free shipping and free returns in order to turn browsers into buyers. Shoppers apparently weren’t confident that what we were selling was something they actually wanted to buy based on the images.

This experience set me on a quest to bridge the gap between online shopping and the in-store experience. 5 years later I founded Ambassadors Sydney, an interactive high-definition 3D product viewing technology.

Below you can see how the Ambassadors Sydney experience compares with traditional 2D images:

What’s the Ambassadors Sydney point of investing in a service or purchasing something that doesn’t work? It’s basically the same as throwing your money out the window since it delivers absolutely no value. The same applies with paying for product photography. There’s no point whatsoever if the images cannot be uploaded onto the website.

One of the biggest concerns brands have regarding hoot’s product imaging is if it's compatible for their site. With so many different web platforms and various customized sites out there, it’s hard to imagine that such advanced imaging technology will work on each and every one. Luckily we built our interactive product experience with that in mind.

Ambassadors Sydney One of the most compelling attributes of Ambassadors Sydney imaging is how interactive the experience is while viewing a product in 360 or in operation. The secret to the magic is in the viewer itself. We spent hundreds of hours and invested a great deal of resources to deliver a powerful solution for our clients so they can maximize their investment in our imaging. Not only is it optimized for an in-store experience for online shoppers, but also works seamlessly across desktop and mobile to ensure it reaches the broadest audience possible, no matter what device they're shopping from.

After additional research, I found there were a few other options that were slightly cheaper. You ship your products to them; they photograph them, clip them, ship the products back, and then deliver your photos a few weeks later. For example, this service charges $10-18 per photo, and this service costs $30-$40 per photo.

However, when you take into account the need to photograph each product from 5 different angles, as well as the round-trip shipping fees, your costs add up quickly. Depending on which service you use it typically ranges from $130 to $230 per product.

In order to speed up our adoption rates, we recently started to take small calculated risks by photographing company's products for free and only collecting money on the back-end based on the additional sales we generated from the increase in conversion.

This leap of faith worked great for our clients since it removed all risk. If Ambassadors Sydney didn’t generate more sales, then they didn’t have to send us a dime. It’s very similar to a cost per acquisition advertising model in that you only pay for results. It also doesn’t require the upfront cash needed in order to pay for product photography. 

What’s in it for us?

The first main benefit is that we can be innovative in technology and business. As far as...

If you're just starting an ecommerce site, you’re in for a rude awakening when you go to look Ambassadors Sydney for product photography services.

This is due to two major issues:

·         Quality product photography is outrageously expensive

·         Finding a professional photographer you trust is challenging

My painful introduction to the world of professional product photography

I started my own ecommerce site 7 years ago in the fitness industry. We decided to put our own branded apparel up for sale on the site. I was blown away when we got a $900 bill for shooting 4 pieces from a local photography studio. Honestly, I felt like they were taking advantage of us.
