It's important to take quality photos that meet our clients' expectations. Since every job is reviewed before it's given to the client, it's possible for a job to be denied if it doesn't meet the requirements in the job instructions.
Here are some tips that will make sure your photos are approved:
Read and follow the instructions for EACH PHOTO carefully.
If the instructions say to capture an entire shelf section, make sure the whole section is visible in your photo. If they say not to cut off any products, make sure we can see every product on the shelf! Every job will be different, so make sure you read closely and follow all the requirements. Retake your photo before moving on if necessary.
Avoid obstructions in your photos like people, shopping carts, etc.
If there's a display, pillar, or other permanent store object keeping you from taking the perfect shot, we understand that's out of your control. Just do your best!
No blurry photos!
Hold your phone still to avoid blur, and make sure your fingers are not blocking the lens. Again, you can always retake the photo before moving forward if necessary.
NEVER skip a photo step.
If the product or display you're looking for is not available, we'll provide alternate instructions every time. Whatever you do, don't leave a photo step blank, or the job will be incomplete and we won't be able to give it to the client for payment!
(In the rare circumstance that the alternate instructions cannot be followed, please reference our related article here: Most Common Denials: Alternate Photos!)
